Salsco - Over 30 Years of Quality and Service


360 Degree Exhaust with Adjustable Chip Deflector, Requires No Tools to Adjust


Easy to operate, maintain and transport.  The 627XT has dual hydraulic feed rolls, 360 degree exhaust, and an easy adjust exhaust flap.  No tools are necessary to adjust the exhaust chute.  Flow control is standard, and is easily adjusted to be compatible with most tractors in the field.  This unit is exceptional in quality and performance, by far the best 6" PTO chipper on the market today.


Speed Sensing is available as an option.  Speed Sensing monitors the impeller RPM, and should the RPM drop to a certain RPM, the infeed will stop and wait for the RPM of the impeller to come up to full operating RPM, and then it will start feeding in the material.  An invaluable tool!



It was a pleasure to speak to you recently regarding my Salsco 627 XT that I purchased last year.  As you are aware, I travel quite a bit and have limited time at home.  This summer though, I have had an extended period at home and was able to get out in the woods and deal with some downed trees and initiate a major cleanup along my road.  As you are likely aware, tractor therapy is crucial and mine has been enhanced with the addition of the 627 XT.


I did significant research on PTO chippers before deciding on the Salsco machine.  This is one of those times where I believe that my research really did pay off.  The machine is not cheap, “but the adage of ‘you get what you pay for’ couldn’t be more appropriate”.  My philosophy for buying this model was quite simple:  I wanted a tool that was going to last and that had a capacity that would handle whatever material is not firewood-sized.  “I am confident that this chipper will standup to anything that I can put through it”.


After mounting the 627 XT to my tractor, a JD 4720, I went about servicing the 627 XT to ensure it was well greased prior to starting work. “ I was struck by the seemingly simple, but well thought out location of the grease zerks. “  They are accessible and positioned for ease of use.  This small detail is indicative of overall quality of the machine. “ Once in operation, one quickly realizes that this is a serious piece of equipment.”  “There is a lot of steel in this machine.  It is not at all a lightweight tool.  The ease with which it chips material makes it enjoyable to operate.  The addition of the speed-sense option has proven to be well worth the cost.  I work alone and with the Speed-Sense option, my productivity is improved with the added benefit of increased operational safety.”


Best of all, the Salsco 627 XT is made in the USA!  The craftsmanship and quality of the construction is a tribute to the design and fabrication teams that work at Salsco.  The customer support that I received for the initial purchase and during the integration of the Speed-Sense option was extremely thorough and helpful.  The Salsco Team should be proud of their achievements.  Keep it up!


I have attached a few pictures of my 627 XT in action.  The chipper is well matched to my JD 4720.

I look forward to many years of operation and satisfaction from the Salsco 627 XT.


Kind Regards,

"I was prompted to purchase the 627XT chipper when I met Sal Rizzo at the Union Farm Equipment open house in Maine.  I was impressed with Sal's commitment to his products and service after the sale.  I use the chipper to make mulch and will burn some of it in my wood furnace to heat my home.  The ease of maintenance is the best feature of this chipper." Roger, Warren, ME

Copy of an email to Sal:  "Sal, I have used the 627XT from Chappell Tractor, your dealer in New Hampshire, several times now, with great success.  I think that this chips better than the Vermeer 606 I was previously using with a 56HP tractor.  You were 100% correct.  My Kubota L3800 has no problem carrying or running this chipper.  I want to thank you for your advice and concern while I was getting this machine.  The fact that you, the owner of Salsco, took the time to call several times to make sure the transaction went smoothly, shows that you truly care about your customers.  It is a great machine." Denny, New Hampshire

"I recently purchased a Salsco 627XT Chipper.  I learned about Salsco from a neighbor and when I called the factory all of my questions were answered quickly and thoroughly.  I needed a chipper and based on what my neighbor said and the answers I got from the salespeople at the factory, I didn't consider any other brands.  The chipper meets all of my expectations and meets every need I have, just as I was told.  We are very happy with this unit." Kurt, Alstede Farms, Chester, CT


"I first saw this chipper on a trailer being towed by Salsco to a trade show.  I called the 800 number on the truck and went to the factory to see the unit.  I also received a tour of the factory.  I am using the 627XT on my John Deere 3320, it handles it perfectly.  My 627XT is the best thing ever!" It is perfect for the apple tree branches.  It pulls them right through, 90° branches, angles and all. It's the first "quiet" chipper I've used.  The flow control is very effective." Greg, Rocky Brook Orchard, RI

"I appreciated Sal (owner of Salsco) calling me regarding my need for Speed Sensing.  I would have bought it anyway, but his good advice sealed the deal.  I picked it up two days ago.  The design, access, and beefy build are impressive." Peter, Thompson Nursery, Bridgeton, NJ

"The last 3 weekends we have been able to clear a new 425 foot driveway through some fairly densely packed spruce and balsam fir.  The chipper has worked tremendously well and has allowed us to accomplish our task much more quickly than we expected. Bob

"A friend who uses Salsco chippers commercially told me about the 627xt. I was recommended by a friend and a good video.  Getting rid of apple orchard trimmings and branches from storm damage.  Greg, Canton, CT
