    Last time the gravely clogged up was with ginkgo. Stuff was so soft and green it clogged up the chipper. In retrospect, if I had fed slowly, it MIGHT have kept going. BUT some shit is just too soft and wet to process. The 'big iron' guys just muscle through and pay no attention to this

    Oh great, it's raining again. So much for my ideas of getting ranch chores done this weekend. Instead I went clothes shopping. Came back with zero. I hate going to malls. Found a crappy pair of pants. The lady told me $76$. I told her I will pass. Guess I will continue to look like a homeless person lol

    Seems like if I slow the wheels waay down I get sawdust chips. Not bad but,,it makes the cutter continually cut, thus slowing down the cutter wheel. I take short bites, full throttle and highest speed on the feed wheels. Take a chomp, spew it out, take another when the wheel is back to full speed. That seems to work with my little chipper. Germ, one of my helpers made an observation I like: the Gravely 395 is a brush chipper, not a wood chipper". Important distinction IMO.

    frans replied to a thread Chipper question... in Chainsaws!
    I have a sorta philosophical comment about gaps on the knives and anvil. I noticed that a bigger gap does make a bigger chip, but when fed slow the wheel seems to keep up the momentum. While a smaller gap makes a smaller chip, the wheel seems to bog down easier. I really think it is the speed of the feed wheels. I like to take 'bites' with my chipper by working the feed wheel. This is on the small chipper 40 some horse

    I know a great climber who is dyslectic, he gets confused sometimes and can't tie a bowline. He has to stop and take a moment to breath, center himself and then is good to go.

    Hopefully you become smarter and realize that if you provide a career type job, good people will fill the spaces. Sorry, maybe a bit too real???

    Does 'beast' mean the physical size? Or the power? The vid I saw it seemed to be really large on this gal. She could barely stand upright and mentioned she felt like some kid with an over large heavy school backpack
