You seen the Merc chipper van on Earborist? I've never seen one before and I don't know how to put a link up off my phone.

I only know the Mengele Mamut as a forage havester, do you know if that's a factory job or an "aftermarket" conversion?

I think you'll find the infeed rollers are the blades. Dickie Robinson used to have one back in the 90's. 65hp caterpiller engine. Proper chuck n' run. The only safety mechanism was they key to turn it off.

Chuck & Duck Drum Chipper...


There was another non-youtube vid of a blue drum chipper where the blokes feeding it were literally ducking for cover as the brash flew past them! Can't find it...
