Some progress on the chip bin on the unit we're running. Last winter was with a low improvised bin. With this we should be able to run about a week at half a million btu's steady. Maybe more.
This machine was amazing. Heat with trash wood and next to no hand labor.

Hmmmn, I just checked the EPA website and it appears it hasn't been approved yet Eldon, what is up with that? Has it been tested? Any efficiency numbers? What size chips? Moisture content of chips?

Perhaps for the Feds but not so here on the Northeast, we made our own Regs way ahead of the Feds. Oh I guess that doesn't matter to the big boys anyway, they seem to consider the Northeast a lost cause!

Max chip size we ran was maybe 1/2" X 3", a lot was smaller. Quite a bit of dust at times. No jams all winter so I don't know where max chip size would be. I don't have easy access to bigger chips.

That would be more like a grinding than a chip, I'll take some pics of a true chip today here at the show, most are 1-3 inches. Nothing wrong with burning grinding though either, they tend to be drier, lighter, fluffier and move easier but would tend to burn back far easier

You are correct, this stuff is coming off a grinder, more shredded, with sticks here and there. There are some bigger chips here and there, seems like it depends on what they're grinding. Sycamore, birch, oak, etc.
None has been dried, green lumber comes into the end trim and resaw, scrap gets ground up and burned.

Personally I prefer the chip as it is very plentiful here, most of our grindings go into colored mulch.

1050 horsepower chipper, this will load a 30 plus ton chip trailer in under 10 minutes, perhaps we should talk to the Donald, what a great way to drain the swamp

Wow, that's a beast!

Around here clean chips are paper plant material and worth some money. Mixed dust/chips/grindings are worth the fuel to haul, not much more.
Interesting how every area has its unique cheap fuel.
I think a B series unit would feed up to 4" chips OK, maybe bigger, but I haven't done it.

Only thing chipped around here gets hauled straight to the land fill. I have a friend thatís bought hay for his nags from me for years, he works for a large excavating company that may clear 10-20 acres at a time for a housing development, it all gets chipped and hauled to the landfill, they donít have time to wait for somebody to come in and haul the logs off. I said something to him about getting a chip burner for the shop, boss wasnít the least bit interested as the tippage fees are figured into the bid anyways.

I know exactly how that is Marty, there is a landscaper / tree surgeon company with maybe 10 trucks on the road here on the coast, they also own about 10 greenhouses 2-3 miles away, they burn oil to heat the greenhouses and dump their chips over the side of the mountain?

   Glad to see Heatmaster added a touchscreen controller and remote monitoring for the B-Series. I would love to see a Wi-Fi module for the G-Series in the near future.
