OT Worlds largest portable chipper shredder

jbest123(Zone 5 PA)December 5, 2008

There are times that you just have to timber. I posted the story with video in my journal. You will see what is supposed to be the worldÂs largest "portable" chipper at work. I wonder how long it would take EG to fill his compost bins with one.

Wow, beats my mini chipper I have that chips 1.5 inch diameter branches at most.

Shame about all that wood. Never caught what they did with all that sawdust.

Some went to Westhouser for flake-board but most went to Canada for paper products.

You'd love Oregon medo. It's like the shire in LOTR. Everyone has a garden. It's funny, if you get on an elevator and want to start a conversation, you just say, what are you growing this year in your garden, and six people all start talking at once. Everywhere except Portland, that is, but I understand Portland will be annexed by Washington state this year. Good riddance!

Hehe, Carolyn. Though Portland is great, you can keep it.

In Seattle, I would say it's one in 20ish garden. But I think that's because it's a big city more than anything. I could really get used to everyone having a garden though.

When we did a ice breaker at the parent gathering at preschool, five of the 30 families gardened. Not bad huh?

Oh and John, that's great that the chips went to good use! Don't know why I didn't connect that that was YOU. Wow! Much more impressive now. hehe.

sinfonian, I am working on another one. It is from my camping days and shows putting in feed plots for deer with less than desirable equipment. I had to decrypt a DVD I had made and do some serious editing. I would be too cyber embarrassed to show most of it, whatever the hell that means. ;o)

Just saw it, very impressive! So the food was all for animals, that is just plain cool! Very nice of you guys. And all you get in return is one buck or so a year. Great idea to grow the herd!
