i've been toying with the idea of getting one of these things for a while. a guy a couple miles up the road has a LIBERTY WC-8. it is out by the road 4 sale and it looks hardly used!! he's asking 1000 OBO. i looked em up online and they go for 2600 new. does anyone have any experience with this particular model or any advice on other brands that you might prefer??? I live on 13 acres and cut alot off my own property. some trees come from what we call our yard. as you can imagine it is kindof a PITA getting rid of all the brush. thought this might help quicken up the cleanup? MH 50 is about 35hp at the PTO, should run it ok? wouldn't chip anything bigger than 4", i'd burn it. Curious on your opinions.
