My wife and I have been thinking about getting a chipper/mulcher. Our yard has quite a few trees so there are always sticks in the yard to pick up, and I'm thinking it would be great for mulching up the bark and small scraps that are leftover after splitting rounds. The mulch would be really handy to use in our garden. Does anyone use one to much up bark and small scrap from splitting? There is an MTD 5hp in so/so shape for $175 There is an 6.5hp Craftsman that looks to be in good shape for $200 And then there is a Troy-Bilt Super Tomahawk 8hp for $375 Right now I'm thinking the Craftsman is maybe the best deal, but I hate dealing with Sears and don't want to have to mess with them if I need a part. The Troy-Bilt looks pretty heavy duty, but maybe more than I need. Anything larger than probably 2" I'm going to cut up and use and kindlin, so I don't need something that will chip up large limbs, and it might just use more fuel than needed. Your thoughts? Thanks!
