Just wondered if anyone had any experience with these chippers? Looking for something a bit bigger to go behind our lorry and came across one of these but can’t seem to find many around. 
 

won’t be used daily just on the bigger jobs, conifers etc. Just can’t bring myself to spend 40k on a bandit
 

any info/experiences would be appreciated!!

We had 2. They were a great chipper, big lumps with stupid low profile tyres but still a decent machine, especially when the turntable worked. I would be nervous about buying one now simply because spares are likely to be an issue and they will be pretty old.  The hydraulic motor went on one of ours and one had issues with the chassis. As timberwolf could not source a replacement motor we made one good machine.  While I am sure something could have been sourced it was not straight forward..

What size is a vermeer 1000? 

The Vermeer BC 1000 is 12 inch, where as the tw 250 is 10 inch I believe.  As primarily handfed machines in a tree surgery business I am not sure it makes a big difference, both will chip whatever you can feed it. You might get a few extra logs from the 250.

 

Either chipper can keep up with a couple on men loading. Might be a different matter if you were loading with a machine but don't think either machine designed for that.
