“The wood chipper was invented by Peter Jensen (Maasbüll, Germany) in 1884, the "Marke Angeln" wood chipper soon became the core business of his company, which already produced and repaired communal- and woodworking-machinery” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodchipper Wood chippers and the ford “N” certainly existed in the same “era”. I did not limit the drive to a drive shaft; a flat belt is direct and fine with me. Also I didn’t limit the machine to a Dearborn, or a 3 point attachment. A skidded flat belt wood chipping machine would be fine. Not as convenient, that is why we switched to a 3 point mounted cordwood saw, but we still own the original skidded saw. This was a small point in my original post, but there were wood chippers and new Ford “N” tractors existing on the planet simultaneously.
