Chipper/Shredder grinding results will vary from application to application;because it depends on many different variables such as: the type of wood, leaves on the branches, thickness, dry or wet log.

Question

Measuring tractor HP

According to the specs, this chipper/shredder should be powered with a 10 -30 HP tractor. My question is where the HP is measured. Is this engine HP or is it PTO HP?

answer 2
I run it on a 32-PTO HP tractor with no problems, but always make sure it is firmly on the ground and I never engage the PTO when it isn't all the way down. I think you would have problems closer to the minimum HP range. You have to wind it up to 540 regardless.

Question

Kubota B7100

I am very close to deciding to order the TPH-122M Chipper/Shredder but want to be sure that it will work with my Kubota B7100 category 1 3 Point hitch and PTO shaft length.

Are there adjustments on the TPH-122M to adapt it to different 3 point hitch lengths ?

I think the shaft would work for your machine. I hooked mine to a JD 2320 and it was plenty long enough. There are no adjustments on the unit.

answer 3
The drive shaft is actually pretty short, so it should work fine on a BX or B series Kubota without quick-hitch adapters. I run mine on a Kubota 3430DT with quick-hitches, which adds about four inches all around. The stock drive-shaft was a bit too short, so I put a longer piece of shaft onto the tractor-side coupler.

Question

How do the chips leave the hopper?

What of the chute from which the chips leave the chipper? Is this stationary or does it swivel?

The discharge is on the left side of the chipper as you are facing the input shoot. This discharge is in a fixed position.

The chips just fall out the bottom of the unit. If you are doing a lot, you'll have to rake them out or move the tractor.

answer 5
The chips exit the chipper from the bottom. The two hoppers (chutes) on the machine are for stuffing stuff into. The big hopper is for stuff less than one inch in diameter and the smaller hopper is for the larger stuff, i.e. limbs.
