Release the Kraken, er, Cracker

I thought our woodpile was big last year but this year's covers at least the same area and is twice as tall. We-re having our debris ground this week. From the piles of green and brown, woody not fecal, we'll end up with wood chips, wood mulch, and two grades of compost. We produce nearly all of our own mulch and all of the compost we use.

This wicked machine takes the tree poles, some as much as 4-5 feet across and 25 feet long, picks them up and cracks them into these pieces that will then go into the tub grinder to produce wood chips. It's ridiculously powerful.
