    Great looking rig! I'd add a 2, 3 foot extension for sure.

    Now that I see it and you said it took 7 gal of fuel to fill it up...

    That gawtdang chipper is burning through the gas!

    Thanks. I'll talk to the mechanic and see if he will give it a try.
    7 gallons of gas should be after a hard day I suppose. I can't really compare. My 250 Xp gets fuel every 4-6 days. At work we have chippers that run 40 gallons a day. Obviously much bigger size. We have a small gasser but I've only ran it once and I have no idea what we used for gas. I can ask if I can stand to talk to the guy who uses it. He's a hyper OCD type of person. A great guy to be around for ten minutes till you realize he's insane.

    Nice Brian!
    It's fun fiddling with new toys to get them set up just right for your operation.

    My chipper just got dropped off at the mechanic...shutting it down yesterday, last load of branches, went to throttle down and it just shut right off, bam, no turning the key like normal. Now it won't start, turns over fine, no nasty noises, but won't fire. Hubby checked the throttle cable and electrics and then fuel pump outlet...nothing coming out when cranking...prob fuel supply issue, hope it's a simple thing, hoping. Mine's a diesel 27hp Deutz.
    Keep smiling, they will wonder what you're up to...

    SOLVED! Broken wire on the emergency stop button...I'd say that was a good find by the mechanic
    I'm so fortunate to have a diesel mechanic two blocks away...gotta love country.

    It's awesome having people around who you can count on in a pinch. I'm currently lacking a good Duramax mechanic so it may be a while before my small bucket truck is up and running again. Got a shop that will try to get it in next week to look at it.

    That's a good set up Brian.

    I did much the same with my chip box so I could load stuff on the back, then made up some ply extensions for chips when I need them. U type brackets just fit over the truck sides, easy to put on and take off.
