Happy New Year! Has anyone had experience with 3 pt PTO wood chippers? Any recommendations? I have a lot of brush to chip and not a lot of HP to work with @ 19 pto hp. Appreciate any comments.

Appreciate the responses, sorry to disappear! I have looked at Jinma and see that they sell one that runs on 15 hp and looks pretty nice. Heavy flywheel. Pretty good review of this on line. Looking at a couple others too. Just cannot decide if I want to spend the money right now. Should have mentioned that I have a 10 acre woodlot on the farm plus fence rows and perimeter trees surrounding the fields. Lots of dead Ash trees. Renting is not going to help and piling has begun to get unsightly. Burning is slow and tiresome. I can use the chips for a lot of things around the place.

I own a Wallenstein wood chipper that I use on the 3 point hitch of an M Farmall. It handles 4 inch dia. stuff, but I never go above 2 inch sticks. It is a direct drive to the cutter wheel/flywheel. It does a good job. The main thing with a chipper is to keep your rpm's up. Ellis

Been discussed on several occasions. If not in a big hurry and most of the branches are pretty small (less than 2 inches), a non-power feed unit works OK which is what would work with your limited hp. We have a 3pt non-power feed unit and after using it a couple of years it now sets. Much easier to burn than use it. Bought a used Vermeer power feed with a 25 hp Kohler and it is so much better. Seriously thought about a new power feed 3pt unit that was about the same money, but decided it would be easier to sell an engine powered chipper that can be towed if we ever wanted to get rid of it.

As previously mentioned. Why not just pile the brush on the edge of the property. It makes good habitat for bunny rabbits. If using a chipper. ALWAYS stand on the side of the feed chute NOT in front of the feed chute. WHY, because people get hit with flying debris when standing in the line of fire. Occasionally these deep thinkers get sucked/fall into the feed chute too because they were standing in front.

You may be better off just to rent a chipper, tow behind a pickup, 30HP. Rent for the weekend for $250, or whatever. Then you are done, take back to rental yard. I dont have a chipper but, I have a chainsaw and a firepit. (gives me a chance to burn that waste oil too) I burn a lot of the tree waste, anything over 3" diameter is cut up in pieces and I give this away to neigbors and buddies that want firewood.

I have a woods brand 3point chipper that I run on my 30 hp kioti diesel an I love it. that tractor just plays with it. it will take up to a 6 inch dia. limb and also has a hammermill for shredding smaller branches up to about an inch and a half. Works very well. Trimming small branches from larger limbs makes things easier. I just use a pair of lopping shears. Small stuff under an inch goes in the hammer mill an the big stuff goes through the chipper. Makes cleaning up debris from firewood less of a pain.

Used a DR Chipper for an afternoon. Think they have a bigger version now, this was one without power feed.

Was all tuckered out by the end of the afternoon, put the forks on the loader and threw the rest ogf the branches in a ravine in an hour to finish up, that was over 1/2 was still left.

The smaller chippers just take so much work to do anything, you push the branches in, and things catch, got to cut the branches up, pretty much had a chainsaw idling while working.

I was not impressed with a small pto wood chipper, found it a waste of time & energy, as I cut the branches up to almost chip size with the chainsaw to make it work.......

Hope others have found them to work better.

Should add, used the chipper on a 27 hp and a 15 hp compact tractors, worked as advertised on both, just seemed pointless to cut the branches up small enough to feed into the chipper, might have helped if we had really really needed the chips, but to just get rid of branches, was painfully slow and workout with the handfed unit.

IIRC, Lowe's and others sell a 11 or 12 HP stand alone chipper which according to them does up to 3 prev poster said, if most of your stuff is small(er) it should work. also to consider price advantage pto vs. stand alone ...

Go on youtube and see what they will/can do. 19HP isnt much, but if the branches are small enough it should go okay. I have seen one of those 3pt wood splitters which is a corkscrew that runs off the PTO. You just hold the log up to the corkscrew and it just breaks apart the logs.
