I am looking for a large chipper. We found one mounted on a truck for 7K but it was gone fast. I need one capable of shredding the hell out of about 20" branches/trees. Probably have to stick with used because of the cost and hopefully from the N Cali area. Any ideas, suggestions?

What size would the used chipper take? There are 20 and 21" Commercial chippers around here, they require a min of 180 H.P. and if you are lucky you can find a used one for about $38,000, a new one will run about $60,000

Even the 10" units I use are $21,000

I have seen the china made 6 & 8 truck mounted units and have two friends with them, granted they are cheap, you will spend more time trying to keep them together than running, I believe they are made by Jimna.
