We had one similar.. it's really more like a "shredder" than a "chipper" . worked great on leaf pile reduction! And you'll definitely need hearing protection!

Some also had the ability to reverse the cutters ( each end has a cutting edge ) but after reversing to use the other end, the shafts and cutters needed replacement.
At lunch I looked and there is a hole at each end of the cutter...so they are reversible

Robert,
They probably have four cutting edges then. You can swap top for bottom using the same hole, and then you can switch to the other end, and use both of those edges. The hammers might outlive you. I expect mine to outlive me on my Mighty Mac. I will be switching to their second edge hopefully before fall gets into full swing.

Great score Form your neighbor! My neighbors just show up wanting to use my swimming pool...

Robert I was thinking of putting together a composter. I was wondering how long the pallet will last ? A couple of seasons ?

If you get good quality hardwood pallets they should last.
Why not use a couple wire cattle or hog panels cut 4' x 4.'

They also make awesome tomato cages when placed 10" or so apart in rows supported by Tee posts. Cattle panels work best for that because the squares are large enough so you can get your hands in them to pick.
Also, cord are easy to pass between them as to support vines wherever needed.
Been doing this for years now.

Dave is right about the good pallets. I'm going on 3yrs with these and have only so far come across 1 board deteriorating,I'll just nail a new one in its place. The whole thing works out great

Hi Robert, can someone take and post a few pictures of what the cutting disk/blades look like please, I downloaded the "manual" from the CC manuals folder (very useful link that one) and it shows a series of hardened steel cutting blades/hammers.

I think this looks like a project I could use given what the product looks like . Nice composting enclosures and good thinking to make them like that, particularly when a CC is involved in filling the space
