Jonny if I'm being honest, for all a chipper that size can handle, crane feeding would be pretty hard work , and slow going.

On 8" chippers plus they can handle big heavy lumps and fairly sizeable trees with brash, hence crane feeding making life easier.

Micro diggers have a short reach so pretty awkward.

Better building a frame and putting the lightest timber crane on the chipper and removing the hopper.

A crane like Flatters has on his trailer .

Again on such a small chipper, I don't see much benefit

I need to get a tree shear for the 7 tonner!

Then I can have some fun [ATTACH]185820[/ATTACH]

 

Funny how you can get a selection of makes all '7 toners' yet some look much smaller than others- yours looks bigger than 7 ton. I think it comes down to the counterwight design yours/like the Takeuchi tb175 is of an old school design somehow looks bulkier/more overhang?
