I have a simple question or two.

Do you generally sale the woodchips?

And what type and brand of mulcher/chipped would you recommend for the home gardener?

Hi Brian, check this 20hp chipper out, friend has the 18hp version, and it works a treat! :-) Plenty of grunt!

We have the piece maker from Greenfield. They have a range of motors, we have the Kohler. Highly recommended.

Must have a big home garden, I know the $100 - $200 dollar ones don't last long, but really $1600 one .

Yes we do have a big home garden. When we lived on a suburban block, we used two different cheap ones, both Rover from memory. I think there are four main differences between the cheap ones I used and the piecemaker.
1) Price
2) What you can chip (diameter, shape and type of material)
3) Quality/durability
4) How easy it is to chip and how long does it take.

Sorry I can't recommend a cheap one, as the two I used were not worth the time it took to use them. I found it easier to roughly chip it by hand using secateurs and loppers. I had to do a lot of that anyway to get it to the right size a shape to get into the small chippers.

P.S. You can get the piecemaker with the kohler motor for less than $1,200. Still expensive, but not quite as bad as $1,600.
