TESTIMONIAL:

"This machine is able to chip brush and large wood better than any other chipper I've ever used. With the large 18" diameter wood, the Salsco 818XT chips just like it's chipping small diameter brush.  The RPM stays high and it doesn't seem like it's under any stress at all.

This gives us confidence in the unit's ability to chip even the large 18" wood.  We purchased this unit to chip 18" wood, as our other large chippers showed stress when chipping large wood.  The Salsco 818XT performs consistently well and holds the same composure chipping large wood as when its chipping small brush. There's hardly any bouncing or vibration.

The feed sensing with auto reverse stops and starts the machine very well, keeps the engine rpm high, is well timed, and never has failed.

I like the wide opening design on the exhaust chute.  It doesn't clog at all, even when chipping vines.

When I first got the machine, we took down a huge tree that was covered in vines.  We wouldn't usually think about putting a tree as covered in vines as that one into a chipper, even the other 18" chippers I've used couldn't handle this tree.  It would normally take about 1-1/2hrs to do a tree this size, this covered in vines, but it only took us 40 minutes with the Salsco chipper.  Also, the 818XT did not clog or wrap on either the infeed rolls or the shaft.

With large logs other machines jump and seem to be relieved when they're done with the log.  Like it needs to take a breath.  With a Salsco chipper, it's constant the whole time.  Like if it was chipping brush.

Even very hard wood, oak, maple, it chips with no problem.  Seems to be under no stress.  No jumping, no moving, it keeps its composure throughout.

The machine is very heavily built, and some might think because of the weight that it would sink into the ground.  However, because of the wide wheels and the double axle, there is actually the opposite effect, even compared to much lighter machines."  Conel, Bridgeport, CT
