Wood Chipper Question

20716 10
A while back i was amazed to see how a wood chipper literally chewed logs into mulch in seconds, i never seen it before first hand.

But i have a question, if i were to feed old barn wood siding into it with nails, would that be a problem for the chipper?

Not that im going to attempt this, but im curious about the limitations of the machine.

First it depends on the machine - the larger commercial machines can easily handle it (even some resi models) but I can almost guarantee you that you would damage the blades thus shortening the life of the equipment and it would not be a real good idea.

I would recommend finding someone that buys reclaimed wood truthfully & make some money off of it
