    i can point you in the right direction but i threw away the business card so don't have the phone and address info.

    on the highway to lampun, about 6 - 10 km out of chiang mai on the right hand side of the road is a kubota tractor dealer. very near the turn off to saraphi.

    they have several. the largest i know of is a 'patipong2233hs18'. it is a stand alone unit. price i have for it is 59,500 B. the info i have is in thai so i could be wrong here, but it looks like a 13 HP motor at 2500 rpm.

    if i do run across the card i'll let you know.

    it occurs to me... you may not be in chiang mai.

    here is the info from the brochure about the 'patipong' equipment ...

    patipong agriculture machine (Rangsit Klong 10)
    120-124 Moo 4 Buengsanan Thanyaburi, Pathumthani 12110
    tel: 0-2908-9914, 0-2546-1668, 08-1855-5580
    www.patpongmachine.com
    patipongmachine[at]hotmail.com

    what i gave before was the chiang mai dealership. this looks like the home office.

    For heavy duty rig I would recommend contacting the local Vermeer dealer. Their web page is Vermeer Thailand Home Page

    Look under environmental for a listing of the chippers that they sell.

    I deal with these guys fairly frequently. PM me if you need any other info.

    800K? Peanuts! The big ones are over USD 500,000!

    Did you contact the dealer? What are you actually trying to do?

    Yea I contacted the dealer in bkk. (good fellow)
    I'm wanting to mulch palm fronds for compost/fertilizer making.
    With the comodity prices tanking right now I need to make every baht count.
    It may be a good option for the long haul. I'm studying it.

    Unhappy Wood chippers

    I have been surfing the net for weeks now looking for a suitable wood chipper, or tree shredder, preferably one that works from our tractor. So far had not much success in Thailand . I must say that the one that I am inclined to buy is from Canada called a JM6 which sells for 1650 dollars delivered to Thailand, the only thing that I am unsure about is the import tax.

    import tax

    Its not that simple. I know from past experience that if I import it in A Thais name the duty will be a lot less than if I import it in my name.

    Not sure if you can get them over here, but i used a new type of brushcutter blade in UK last uyear. It's called a mulching blade and is great to use. It reduced large areas of thick bramble and gorse to shreds.
    Buy a brushcutter and get the heavy duty mulching blade, it could be a chaep option for you.
    The only downside id it is very labour intensive.

    I recently bought a Thai made chipper/hammer mill. Works quite well for shredding the palm fronds.
    I'll post some pics later.

    The Vermeer dealer is still selling environmental equipment in Thailand. Their office is just up the road from mine and I see that they are stocking a few models of chippers in their yard. I don't think that they sell a PTO driven model, most are diesel or electric driven.

    Their web site is Environmental

    The vermeer equipment is really nice but very expensive. The Thai made chippers cost a fraction and get the job done.
    Get a copy of the Thai farm and gardening magazine. There are adds for dealers usually listed in there. The equipment dealers in the larger rural towns like Suphanburi should have chippers. I found mine in Surat Thani.
    I also saw them at the annual ag show at Kasetsart university.

    I kinda forgot about this thread. I'll try to find some pics, they are buried somewhere in this digital wasteland.

    ^ looks like you're into worm farming in a big way. Are the castings for your own use or are you selling them? Apart from the coconut husks and palm fronds are you putting anything else in the worm food?

    I also use coffee shellings, rubber tree sawdust, a variety of spoiled fruits and veggies. Sometimes we mix in some fresh cow shit. Enzymes in the cow shit help break down the celulose of the palm frondss making it easier for the worms to eat.

    The castings are used for fertilizer on the palm trees.

    Hi Earl,

    I have just purchased a small block between surathani and nakon sri and am loocking at buying a small tractor to do maintenance and launch my boat.
    Also would like a chipper to process garden rubbish, coconut husk palm fronds to use as mulch.

    What size tractor do you use and what was an approximate cost of the mulcher.

    dont bother with that guy in canada, he is a conman.all he does is take the order from you at a dear price and then puts the order into china for them to send you the macine, the price of a jm6direct from china is 35,000 baht

    I am just on my ipad at the moment, when i get home i will send you some more info. to import you are best leaving it all to an import company who will take care of the duty and deliver to your door. the best deal i got with this machine is 35,000 for the machine and 40,000 covered the duty and shipping costs. remember if you want one from china, cars and electrical items carry heavy duty, not so with this that runs off a tractor. keep it all in your wifes name, and if you decide on collecting at the docks just let your wife and some other thais go

    Hi Mr. Earl and everyone here.
    I am new on this forum.

    I am interested in your PTO mulcher.
    Any chance of giving us the brand name ?
    I am in Yasothon a bit far from Surat Thani.

    My gf told me that the gardening magazine is not published anymore ?
    I will go to the news agent later.

    Cheers.
