    CHIPPIN' A PILE OF WOOD!
    That Chipper Guy



    Published on Dec 26, 2016
    The Morbark 2755 chipped a pile of wood I stacked up the other day!! I was in the Cat 535D and got some wood up to the chipper and now the chipper gets to eat!! This job is only a couple acres of wood so there wasn't enough logs to pull the slasher on it. It's the same landowner that we are currently cutting it's just across the road. Now let's watch the chipper feast!!!!
