I've been reading hundreds of posts on this subject here and still can't make up my mind.
I have a five-acre property with 1+acre gardens.
Up til now, I've been tossing large weeds, brush cuttings and such off the edge into a swamp area,
but I grudge not getting the material into my compost.
I also have a fire pit where some of it goes, weather permitting.
An item that can cost $90-$9,000 is notoriously hard to decide on.
The make most seem to agree is the best is MacKissic.
At a minimum of $700, plus maintenance and storage,
I'm wondering if I wouldn't be better off just renting one once or twice a year.
Most of what I'd like to compost is large, rangy weeds, both fresh and dry,
and consensus seems to be that they clog the machines up.
If anyone has one more thing to say about this, I'd be very happy to listen. Thanks!
