Hi Hank, I like it a lot. If I’m not mistaken those are pretty sturdy ships, close to chunks. That’s good. What wood size is that chipper able to handle? Does it handle dry wood too? I ask because the drying process usually gets trickier with smaller fuel.

JO,
the one with wood chunks and gasifier but not enough places to go

Hoy Jan-Ola,
nice to meet you,
Here’s a picture so you can get an idea about the size…
my hands are abnormally huge :laughing:

It can handle about 12 cm wet and 10 cm dry wood…
I wanted to post a video but couldn’t…
You can always get a refill at my place (if you like my chunks ?!?) when you pass by Belgium!

Haha, thank you. Good to know If I’m ever going south.

Hi Micheal,

try directly the Czech manufacturer:
http://www.bystron.cz/en/
Go to wood chippers for cutting length 8 cm and wood block chippers for cutting length 15 cm. They have prices in Euro, but I don’t know if shipping to the US is possible.

About 5 years ago there was a talented young man at Argos with a woodgas pickup truck that was first fired there. In the back of the truck in a sack he pulled out the screw of the screw chipper that he was going to make. His craftsmanship was to be admired!
