    that's slow compared to a whole tree chipper... you hear them around here.. the 1000hp diesel wailing... then Hrmphhhhhhhhhhhhh! whole tree chipped in literally less than 10 secs. I wouldn't want to be anywhere near that excavator mulcher thingie in operation..... it might even throw debris as far as Morbark's big tub grinder

    except for a few limited applications it doesnt seem very practical for a whole lot. Cool to watch tho.

    They mount these to bobcats and call them forestry mulchers. Actually a fairly common device with relatively low cost of entry. They "mow" the forest after a harvest or to clear powerlines and lots. The trash on the ground rots away over time and is low enough to maintain with a regular brush hog.

    It's a pretty low impact method for converting forest to pasture.

    This looks to me like a better use of the same machine.
