Question

will this unit work with palm fronds

Will this unit chip / shred dried palm fronds? I have an 8 hp Bear Cat and can not use it on palm fronds or geranium plants due to their high fiber content. All they do is plug the screen. Will this unit perform? Have a 26 HP tractor.

This will work great. Chop off the bottom woody part, put that in the chipper side. Place the palm fronds in the shredder hopper.

This will chip up to a 4-1/2 inch branch or tree. It will produce clean, crisp little wood chips that are perfect for garden mulching and a professional looking landscape.
