That little chipper is just the right size. We could haul it on a work flat.

We bought a used chipper for the farm a couple of years and they are not very expensive.  The right size chipper, some steel and a set of Fairmont wheels and you'd have a nice machine.  Go shopping!  On eBay NOW!

Time lapse is always fun to watch!  The work at TOM would have been neat in high speed.  Good promotional fodder too.
