Model 627XT Chipper Testimonials

"It was a pleasure talking with you recently and I trust you had a pleasant 4th of July Holiday.  I have attached a copy of a few pictures taken during some recent chipping activities on my property.  As I highlighted in my previous email, sent nearly four years ago, I continue to be quite pleased with the 627XT performance.  As noted, this is a well-built, durable machine that will continue to provide years of reliable service.  It is quite satisfying to watch sizable beech tree saplings and larger branches be rapidly reduced to a pile of usable chips.  As Jack highlighted, when I initially contacted Salsco about purchasing a chipper, the speed sensing feature would be a wise option to select.  I could not agree more.  As I often work by myself, I can nearly maintain a continuous feed of branches and material going into the hopper and the machine doesn’t bog down or hesitate."

"With this being the company’s 40th anniversary, congratulations are in order! Recognizing the challenging market conditions, Salsco’s continued success is a commentary on the dedication and commitment of a highly qualified engineering and manufacturing team.  Quality does matter and with Salsco, the customer gets what they pay for. If at any time, a prospective customer is on the fence on which chipper to purchase, I would be more than happy to directly share with them my experience.  I'm more than happy to talk about my chipper to anyone who will listen." John Roth, Meredith, NH

"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

..."It works well, it's well built"...

"Yes, the machine performs as expected. It works well, it's well built, and it's NOT CHINESE!" Robert, Winnsboro, TX

..."performs much better than I expected"...

I first heard about the Salsco 627XT on the internet.  When I called Salsco, they answered all my questions thoroughly.  I looked at several different brands and decided to purchase what I believed to be the best quality.  The 627XT definitely suits my needs exactly as I was told, and performs much better than I expected." Todd, Clinton Corners, NY

..."Very well made, should last me a long time"...

"The salesman at the Salsco dealership (Union Farm Equipment, Union, ME) was very helpful. Very well made, should last me a long time. I can’t keep up with it." Darryl, Woolwich, ME


..."Made in USA!"...

"We needed a small chipper for small jobs. Price was competitive. A big factor on our decision - Made in USA! We are very happy with performance!" Walter, Thayer Excavating, Hatfield, MA


..."The chipper works very well"...

"We were unable to see actual machine before we ordered but brochure and internet info/pictures looked good and well built. We were looking for a U.S. made chipper. The chipper works very well!" Jeffery, Valley View Farm, Shelburne, VT


..."is a dream to work with"...

"Dick, the salesman from Salsco, was very helpful in explaining what I needed. I have a Chinese made chipper that was inexpensive, but it simply did not perform. The old adage of you get what you pay for is very true. The Salsco chipper is a dream to work with, particularly after the Chinese made unit I had. With its hydraulic feed and speed control it requires a fraction of the effort needed to work with my other unit." Philip, Haddam, CT

..."Holy cow, can this thing chip!"...

"Holy cow, can this thing chip!  It will chip anything I throw at it.  Although I do not chip any big hardwood, I burn that.  I looked at as many chippers as possible.  The Salsco looked to be the most professional and rugged machine.  I worried that the 39HP at the PTO would not be enough, however my Kubota doesn't hesitate at all." F. Fowler, Winchendon, MA


..."I am impressed with the robustness of the unit"...

"I was looking for a new chipper so I contacted Salsco and the salesman answered all of my questions. I decided to purchase the 627XT PTO after seeing the quality and the sturdiness first hand. I did not even consider another model. I am impressed with the robustness of the unit, the capacity (6”) and the fact that it runs off my tractor PTO. I used the Chipper on the day of the sale and it performs just as I expected.  I like the fact that it is made in the USA." Alex, Chesterfield, NH


..."The Chipper is fairly priced"...

"I heard about the 627XT Chipper on the Internet. I liked the good online comment and the nice design. When I contacted Salsco they answered all the questions I had.  I did not consider any other models.  The Chipper is fairly priced.  I appreciated Sal calling me regarding my need for speed sensing.  I would have bought the machine anyway but his good advice sealed the deal.  I picked it up two days ago. The design, the access and beefy build are impressive. This Chipper works as well as I expected and it meets all my needs." Peter, Bridgeton, NJ


..."We have had no problems"...

"I purchased my 627XT Chipper directly from Salsco.  The Inside Salesperson is excellent!  She answered every question and followed through on everything promised!  We used the Chipper the afternoon we received it and found it to perform as we were told it would.  We have had no problems!" Robert, Atlanta, GA


..."Getting the hydraulic feed was a great decision"...

"Just wanted to write you a note to tell you how satisfied I am with my Salsco chipper. I purchased the Model 627XT PTO Chipper with hydraulic feed and speed sensing, based on your recommendation and the look of strength in the Salsco unit compared to other brands. I was apprehensive making such a large purchase without seeing the chipper in person, but I found I didn’t have a thing to worry about. A friend that makes his living working with metal said this thing should last a lifetime. In the field it is a workhorse, matching perfectly with my 50 HP John Deere tractor. Getting the hydraulic feed was a great decision – I just put limbs and small trees in the hopper and walk away to get more. But I can’t take credit for that decision, since my wife told me she wanted me to have the safety features the system includes. Anyway, I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. But I can’t close without recognizing the great people at Salsco - from the Receptionist, to the Inside Sales Person, to Sal himself, the owner of the company – y’all really know how to take care of folks. Thanks for your help, and for helping to keep the manufacturing tradition alive and well in America." R.G., Carrollton, GA


..."It is the first “Quiet” chipper I’ve used and the speed control is very effective"...

"I first saw the 627XT being towed on a trailer so I contacted Salsco to learn about it. All of my questions were fully answered.  I particularly like the capacity of the infeed.  When I visited Salsco I received a great tour of the factory.  I looked at the Bear Cat and the Bandit but chose Salsco.  The chipper is everything we need and performs even better than we expected.  My JD3320 – 33HP – handles it perfectly.  It is the first “Quiet” chipper I’ve used and the speed control is very effective." Greg, Middletown, RI


..."unit works like a charm"...

"I have 150 acres to keep clean and I like all the features. Good Quality and Made in the U.S.A." Mark, Bethel, VT
