One of the bigger fruit growers here, used a couple of them, to clear about 140A of secondary growth, that had no hardwood value.

Logged the lot for two weeks, of the Oak, Cherry, Hard Maple, and then just went in and chewed everything into 4 50-60' Mountains of chips.
It was impressive.

Then the EPA decided to get into a fight with the State on permitting, and stalled everything.
It would have been "Forrest to Orchard" in 5 months otherwise.

With one of those it goes like this in my mind.
1. Get rid of my chain saw
2. Don't have to get a stump grinder
3. Get rid of my chipper
4. Use the FEL to put the mulch where I want it
5. Less man power needed
6. I won't be as tired
7. When are they going to make one for my 1026


I like this concept. :bigthumb:

HA-HA..... That chipper/grinder head weights more, probably TWICE what your 1026 weighs. You might want to consider a LARGE excavator.
