Don’t know that much about chippers but yanmar engines will run forever if you don’t overheat them,and obviously service them. I’d go that way just for that reason

Thanks, I imagined the diesel offers more torque than the petrol. Quick google and there are some direct replacement engines for around the 1k mark. Loncin for example

Does anyone know if the diesel 18hp yanmar engine provides any benefit over the briggs and stratton 4 stroke? I have seen a TW 18/100 and for sale with the diesel engine.

Can not see it would pick up speed as quick as petrol engine but as said torque may mean it doesn't bog down as quick. Great chipper for straight timber.

I didn't think of it that way, they're not too small either, it is a cheap option and I was debating unbolting it from the trailer chassis and mounting it on wheels to push along. But it might end up unbalanced, the one I am looking at would be a lot less than a CS100.

When they were first made by Entec there was a portakit available to do that, think I have a brochure some were with picture.

Did they not take off or something? I would love a setup like this. Best of both worlds.
