    I'm guessing one of the levers applies down pressure and the other one manually controls the feed wheels.
    Good stuff Paul.

    Yes he is short also ocd I believe, we told him to move the chute around to keep the chip truck evenly filled and I guess he can't see in the back of the truck so he stands up there. I have long since given up on trying to figure folks out. If it works I don't care, plus he is very conscious about not getting hurt, now that is a trait I can appreciate.

    He may be short, but the chipper is also rather larger/tall eh?

    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    I spent $35K on this chipper

    Buyers remorse?

    Not even. Shit I just cannot believe how much this thing speeds the job up. We did 60 yards of chips by 9_30 this morning. Crushed a huge job......

    Hydraulic tank gets way too hot for my liking, 170f but I'm putting a couple of oil coolers on the return circuits .

    Love feeding Brutus
