Do you have information on wood chippers.

I would like to buy a small one for home use.

Mike & F14- Look on down below here, for a thread about this a couple of weeks or so ago. I told about my Fox brand corn silage chopper and others had good info too.

Like F14 sez, to one of them things a hand or arm would just be a little free machine lubrication!

Also, git smarted up fast and big as to working around tractor PTO driven equipment. That long PTO shaft is likely more hazard than the chopper head.

Either way, if any part of your clothing gets "grabbed" by rapidly moving machine parts just hope you had good life insurance and plenty of it!

Good luck and work safe, IHank

I have seen some references to modifying an old silage/corn chopper into a wood chipper. In areas of the country that have or had lots of dairy farms, they are available very cheaply.

Be DARN CAREFUL with this project. Anything that will eat a 6" piece of oak won't even notice and arm or a leg...

If I had a dollar for every chopper I've seen go through an auction for less than 50$ I could treat the 2 of us to a good dinner! Last spring I picked an old IH chopper in working condition for 15$ Plan to make that into a chipper sometime
