3 Point Wood Chipper

Ok guys what is a good brand of 3 point wood chipper to get with a 6" shute, that actually works good with a power feed cog to pull the branches in.

Now all of this without breaking the bank. Is there a good unit out there that works that is reasonable priced???

Thanks
Steve

Re: 3 Point Wood Chipper

So does anyone know anything about the "Liberty Wood Chippers"? They seam to be made very similar to all of the rest of the 3 point wood chippers out there. The 6" professional has a 165lb flywheel, and is power fed into the hopper. They are put together in Arizona. Now I am not claiming they are made 100% in the USA because I know they outsourse most of the parts for them, but they are put together here in the states.

Re: 3 Point Wood Chipper

Don't know anything about the Liberty line you mention, but I have a Wallenstein BX32 (smaller than you are talking about) and it works great.

Re: 3 Point Wood Chipper

I did a Google of "liberty wood chipper" and the site that came up showed a machine that I suspect to be a Jinma chipper that I have seen other places.

Other threads and posts I have read say that people have had "average" success with the Jinma chippers. No rave reviews, but no reports of bad failures. Mostly posters say they seem to take a lot of TLC and attention before and as they are used.

Different people will have different experiences......
And expectations of how they should work......

Good luck

Re: 3 Point Wood Chipper

Ok I have the Liberty wood chipper now. It does work surprisingly very good so far. I do have a small problem though. I have it on a Ford NAA(Jubilie) The lifting points on the chipper are about 20+" off the ground and my tractor can only go about 4" higher than that. I am afraid I will be dragging it in some places on my property as I go up and down little inclines. Any ideas? I have a call into Liberty but I think they are going to say that is where you have to lift from. The chipper weights in at over 800lbs. Has anyone heard of some sort of adapter that I could gain even 4 more inches would help a great deal????

Thanks
Steve

Re: 3 Point Wood Chipper

Doing the same google search as before.

It looks like it would be easy enough to mount the 3pt pins 4-6" lower.
It is possible to add an additional top link bracket about that much lower. Use the existing bracket as a anchor point and make brackets to lower the attaching point. Be sure you have enough adjustment in your top link to find where it works best.

It may not travel in a nice level position. And watch your PTO shaft clearance and angle while traveling and running.

Good luck

Re: 3 Point Wood Chipper

Well guys the wood chipper now has lower pick-up pins and it works like a dream. Took it on the field today where I had a huge brush pile and chipped it all in a little over an hour. It performed way beyond my expectations. No problems at all. Thanks for all the advice

They are basically a Jimna...
