    Hey there Morbark!
    I've got a chance to buy a little 2070 with a 35 HP gas motor on it. Don't even know the year. I run a commercial tree care business here in Houston. In Houston, I don't see a lot of Morbark equipment, and the only pics and videos I see of this little machine have it chipping some kind of soft wood form up north. Can someone tell me what this little guy might do with a bit of South Texas Live Oak? My other chipper is a 120 horse CAT Altec 1217HP.

    I'm basically just looking for some advice. The folks that want to sell it are asking $4500 and it only has 88 hours on it!

    Thats a 60hp Gas Wisconsin Engine, I just bought one with the 33hp diesel Kobota engine and I like it... It depends on the truck you match it too... Let me know how far the discharge chute throws chips for you... That is my only issue. I bought mine and I do like it. Quite heavy however. Does yours have auto feed. Mine Does and it runs great with it. A true 9" machine. Call me and I will go through what I know about it with you. 6472800200.

    $4500 is a great deal for that, it's worth at least $8,000 if the hours are real and it looks like they are. Probably a city unit that sat in the sun and never got used. For that money you can have a nice little unit to run behind a pickup truck for those hard to reach places. Nice!
