Was talking to woodland mills customer service they recommended I not chip wood that has been on the ground as dirty wood will dull the blades

they recommended chipping fresh cuttings

vast majority of my job is stuff that’ already down and been down for a few weeks/months

how do you all use your chippers?

Yes it is true it’s going to dull the knives faster or put more ware on them. Probably not enough that your going to notice in less you do a lot of chipping with wood that has dirt on the bark. I don’t seeing it being to much of a big deal sometimes you have no choice. Same thing goes for your chain on your saw cutting dirty wood.

That's the majority of what we're chipping. Keeps going and going and going. No signs of dull blades yet.

After a dozen years of running all manner of wet and muddy stuff through my Wallenstein I reversed, sanded off the rust, and adjusted the blades. I couldn’t visually see or notice any functional difference. I try to avoid gravel and rocks.
