View attachment 379595 Found it on my local CL. Used it a bit today and everything works as it should. Wish it pulled the branches in a bit better but for the money, I couldn't beat it.

Sharpening the blades may change how it self-feeds a lot.

Blades look really good now. I'm not exactly sure what to expect from a self feed.

I have a BX42 running on L3800. I bought it new. I adjusted the anvil to create smaller chips and seems to pull material into the hopper at a faster pace. I also make sure the chipper sits level.

I got the manual with it as well. I will read through it and see if I can adjust the anvil. Jmoneil, your tractor is very similar to mine. I try to keep the pto shaft as straight as possible. The chipper is also level but it is raised up of the ground. I'm thinking about bolting some 8x8 PT blocks to the base.

I have been looking for one for months....they do not come up used very often. I have so many trees I am dealing with.

Do you mind if I ask what you paid for it, it looks in super good shape.

My 'Bearcat" chippers ability to self feed diminish as the chipping blades dull..You can't tell by look to see if they require sharpening, ....if you can run your finger along the edge and it doesn't feel like its about to draw blood....it needs sharpening....I have a spare set of blades and alternate from one sharpened set to another. Time between changes depends on what is being chipped

Make sure you have plenty of clearance.
I've like a "mini" pallet I carry in the bucket to give about an 8" lift for my Jinma..
