Re: JUNKKARI HJ260 G pto

What,s the problem with them? Had a good look round it, build quality seems ok, put some wood through it and it chips! So are they just the wrong colour or are there major problems with these machines?

Re: JUNKKARI HJ260 G pto

i can't remember the model i had but it had a section between the blade and the roller that pieces of wood would get trapped in, it then would not let anything past!! you would then try and push it through with another lump of timber and the small section would get lodged. drove me mental it was on a 406 unimog so had the power.

used one a sawmill that we use to feed slab wood into it with the crane it was ok but even with new blades the chips were very stringy, not a patch on the tp for chipping though imo.

When i had a try of it it did the, bit of wood trapped between the rollers and the cutting disc thing, which was easely cleared. It,s a machine we would use perhaps once a month if that, so i guess we will just put up with the jamming thing for now, and with use i,l find out what causes it to jam, and avoid doing that and see if i can re engineer it so it does not jam. As ever the price was right.

Re: JUNKKARI HJ260 G pto

It's all about expectations, if you accept it's a bargain price for something that's ok! Then fair enough, I don't settle for anything less the great when it comes to kit, I want to enjoy using it, the better it is , the easier it is, and the more money it will make me.

Well bought the Junkkari at a bargain price, got it home and gave it a proper go, stuck wood in the back and out the spout came chip, nice chip! need to sharpen the blades and adjust a few things and it,l be perfect for me.
