The Mighty Mac® TPH185 is a 3-point hitch mounted shredder-chipper designed for use on Category 1 tractor PTO’s with up to 45 HP, running at 540 RPMs.
This machine will chip branches up to 4-1/2” in diameter and the 48 free-swinging hammers are heat-treated, case hardened, and reversible four times providing years of useful life. They will pulverize leaves, small brush, stalks, grass, and any other yard and garden or kitchen debris. The chipper features a heavy steel flywheel with a tool steel heat-treated knife that can be resharpened. The flywheel has been specially balanced for the smoothest chipping with the least vibration.
The large hoppers allow for processing bushels of material fast and efficiently and less pre-processing pruning.

They need flipping one last time to present a square sharp working edge. stones dull the flails. I've sharpened the pair of chipper knives several times. The "smoke wrench" is a necessity to get the fixing screws out. I bought a box of 100 replacement internal wrenching c'sink screws for service replacements after sharpening.Read Less
