I am looking at a BCS 730 on Craigslist. It has a bio 100 chipper.
My concern is... do I want the chipper or would the money be better spent on a unit without the chipper? I do have stuff to chip and get mulch, and I would like to have the mulch, but don't need to do it in a tedious manner. The chipper looks a bit tedious to use?Not a real useful farm implement. Does anyone have the opposite opinion? Even small branches have to be stripped of all laterals etc? I can just load my pickup truck and throw them in the back of the property and rent a 6" vermeer every few years. Any wood over 3 inches we can use for firewood or give away.
If I buy the chipper to get the machine is there a good market to sell the chipper? What might it fetch?
Thanks for any input. I see from the forum that lots of people love these bcs machines.
