Papac chipper questions

Hello everyone, I have been looking for a reasonably priced pto powered wood chipper to run behind my white 2-35 field boss. I found a papac chipper locally for $600. It's rusty and missing the corn attachments but owner says it works. Everything I have found online shows the papac is from the 50's and were used for corn. Can these be used for wood chipping also or are they really too light duty for that? Owner says he used it to cut up 3-4 inch diameter trees clearing fence line. I need to clear a ton of small trees for a pasture. I'm hoping this would work. I appreciate your input in advance. Thank you!!!

Depends upon what you consider small trees. Corn choppers where not designed to cut down trees. I don't see where they would have a problem with sapling be anything that has been allowed to develop into a harder wood maybe a problem for the head cutters.

Re: Papac chipper questions

Thank you for the advice! I plan to chip green trees between 3-6 inches in diameter. It sounds like it would not have been able to handle what I was going to use it for. I ended up finding a very reasonable privately owned whisper chipper (chuck and duck) instead.

That corn chopper won't chip 3-6" branches, logs, etc. or anything close to it. Buy a good tow behind or 3pt chipper and be done with it.
