My son cut son trash ( one mans trash is another mans treasure ) of some fence lines and I was wanting to test the gear ratios on the soon to be wood burning tractor .
All seems to work very well , tractor is just idling along enjoying the day and the chunker speed is as fast as I need it .
The gear ratio on the pto can be adjusted fairly easy . I can have several different size sprockets to bolt on the bottom sprocket if needed but for the work I plan for the tractor this ratio ( one pto rev to two motor revs ) seems just right .
The tractor running 100% wood didn’t even know it was pulling a load. I chunked some good size pieces although they were green .
A video below . Sorry Mike L. and Mr. Steve , video about ten min long but I know terry L will enjoy.
The tractor chunked much more fuel than it consumed !!!
