Bearcat Wood Chipper custom discharge chute

This video is about our BearCat homemade discharge chute.

Disclaimer: This is a prototype design we made only for temporary use. It is not an authorized piece of equipment by the manufacturer. If you decide to build one for yourself, you agree to do so at your own discretion, risk and liability.

I wanted a chute that would blow chips right into the quad’s dump cart. Its a little more than 1 cubic meter (yard) of material. We previously would fill the cart with the 3″ BearCat chipper but filling it just once and dumping would take a whole hour. When I recently purchased this 8″ wood chipper, the first objective was to fill the cart with a custom chute. It did so easily, 5 times an hour. Although, there is still some things to consider, like the huge amount of airflow from the chipping action causes blowback of chips. It makes a mess but that’s not a big concern for us.
