What Chipper??

I know this question gets asked a lot but I'm having a massive dilemma!
I currently have a tp150 I've had loads of problems with it and my local dealer/service centre are useless!!!
So I've decided to go for something different!
I want a chipper that's fast and does not slow down a lot maybe something bigger possibly!
I was thinking maybe timberwolf as I've been told there good!
I'm not interested in Greenmech they are the worst chippers I have ever used! Lol
Maybe Jensen but heard mixed reviews!
Any feedback or advice would be great thanks

How did it rate against your TW?

I know this an age old discussion but when you flick through General tree pics thread and Hama"s reduction thread you see a lot of TWs behind the trucks. They cannot all be wrong!

Re: What Chipper??

Id get someone else to look at the TP if i were you
Regardless of what machine you buy you'll still have problems if your mechanics useless.

Re: What Chipper??

It's 10 years old and I've thrown loads of cash at it now with different mechanics!
It's cost me loads of time and money on jobs
I just want something different! Lol

better than my TW, higher output, easier to feed, better designed in terms of maintenance, vertical rollers are far better than horizontal
it seems like they have really thought about it from design to manufacture

around 16k

Some of the older greenmechs were terrible, but the Quad Chip is head and shoulders above any other machine in its class IMO.

Re-reading your original post, how much bigger would you want to go and what is your budget?
