Ran one of these for a bit back in 70's making fuel chips.
Good machine for what is going through it now.
Make certain you have the power so they do not stall out.
I was running 225 hp into the drive end. Stall it out and it's no fun!
They seem to have good power.
One thing they want to do is keep the sticks out of that gravel pile.
Rocks sticking to the " to be chipped material " will soon make you wish you 
had eliminated that issue.
I did not keep the machine as I was doing fuel wood and whole tree.
For fuel you get so much out of the limbs and needles that it is not funny.
Gasification for power this is the machine.
Gasification for heat with the right unit chuck anything combustible at it.
