The two brands that I seriously looked into are D&R and Mckissic. I know D&R has PTO driven chippers and I think McKissic does too.
I went in with my neighbor and bought a McKissic powered by a Honda engine rather than the PTO model. Figured I would rather wear out a stand alone engine rather than the Ford.
The thing eats up to 2 inches plus with no problem and we got the one with the hammer miller shredder which works great on small stuff like branches, pine cones, etc. I have been very happy with the unit.
We are also allowed to burn at my Northern California property. I am not comfortable burning with all the grass etc that is in the area and the fires that have come close to our properties. The McKissic really does a great job reducing the tree trimmings to mulch.
You might look at YouTube and see some of the videos there. Some good information available.
