    Check out Woodmax chippers at woodmaxx.com. Not used but reasonable and they ship for free to your door. Be sure to tell them if you have the I-Match on your tractor if you go that route. They will not ask.

    I have the opportunity to buy a used Wallenstein BX60 in nice shape for $2K about an hour's drive away. Is the gravity feed too much effort? I have a lot of chipping to do...... Thoughts on these units?

    Thanks

    If all you have is one big job, I'd probably consider renting a commercial unit. Buying makes sense if you are going to have a continual need but for a one time use, even a big job renting might make more sense.

    The Wallenstein looks like a nice unit but compared to the commercial ones, I'm pretty sure it has some limitations. I've only used a commercial unit a few times but they were toss and forget. If you started a limb into the feeder you could turn around and go for the next one. For really big jobs, the whole tree chippers are awesome. Feed them with an excavator or log loader and fill up a full size trailer in about 30-40 minutes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fbCI0zFsw8

    They do suck fuel though. When one was running on my place a fuel truck came every day. By the time the skidder, debarker/loader, tree harvester and chipper were refueled, the truck was a lot lighter. The chipper in particular liked fuel but it ran flat out with something like a 7-800 hp diesel engine. Insert lots of trees and lots of fuel and you got lots of chips. The only time it shut down was when the chip trucks couldn't get back in time.

    Could it be retrofitted with a hydraulic feed?

    I really can’t comment as I have only run commercial chippers but I couldn’t image a manual feed.
