It’s running, well the engine is running. Ran the Predator 420cc for 4 hrs. No load, low idle to half way throttle.
Still waiting on the pully and belt it is three belts in one piece. Coming from Kentucky of all places.
I have been cutting off pieces of steel that is in the way. I have decided to try and keep it looking like a bailer, around here we do not have to license farm equipment so it is going to be a Newholland (modified square bailer) Wood Chunker.
The rotor rake will be removed and a covered wood storeage area will be built in that spot all the way to the back. It will chunk the wood and put it in the storeage area. Kinda like what @JO_Olsson
does with his rebak and trailer set up.
I will beable to go to the Orchard piles and chunk the wood and bring it home. Lots of orchards have wood they have to burn every year. All free fuel if they do not have to burn it. I have a huge pile to go though before I will need to go looking for more wood.
My opening will be in the side of the bailer, I will be making a flat blade cutter and have it auto feed for short pieces of wood, and manual feed for long pieces of wood. It makes me nervous watching people freed short pieces of wood in to these chunkers. Safety, safety, safety comes first.
