I'm not sure how bigger job it would be to retro fit to a standard 1600, the 200HP ones have the cabs lifted, different exhaust, intercooler, not sure what else.

Vos do a intercooler kit, but not sure how good it is, not something I would buy.

Chris you will get more chip into the box with a rear mount if you fill it properly , it gets blasted in rather than drop in.
A pto chipper spout 12" from the box means no spillage , you can really pack it in.
Middle , side , side and repeat

Can you explain what you mean by 'mount it properly'?

The chipper is not on link arms, its on a schmit (sp) plate, the chipper weighs around a ton, I would not want one any heavier.

Hi Steve
Thanks for posting pics, I don't want to de-rail Chris's thread on his very nice new mog, (and a bargain by the sounds of it.
I think our Valtra would go onto that trailer (just)
