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.
I had salvaged the rear end off of a ride on mower. Its wide wheels appeared perfect to upgrade the mobility of our Bearcat wood chipper shredder (model #70085). Lessons learned along the way.
I was towing the wood splitter home after a neighbour had borrowed it. Country dirt roads do not lend well to machinery being towed that has no built-in suspension. Next thing I know I hear wump wump wump… damn.
Spring has sprung, and while the weather remains cool, its the best time to do some outdoor work.
I had gone for years with little wear on the steel edge but the last 2 years doing a small parking really wore down the edge. I recycled an old car tire to make a new cutting edge.
Recently I had rented a post hole digger and had the choice to either transport it in the back of the truck or tow it. I opted to tow it. The fellow and the rental place came out with this unit, which I thought was pretty slick. The wheels and axle (Figure 1 and Figure 2) stay on the machine, while the tow bar detaches.
DISCLAIMER: First let me say that its not recommended to use a circular saw blade on a brush saw.
For starters, that’s not what the blade was intended for. Secondly, the arbor hole on the blade is larger that the shaft on the brush cutter.
