    79C Shredder Grinder

    Does anyone have any information on the 79C shredder grinder? I'm looking at picking one up but cannot find much information on it. Seems it has a chipper chute, unlike the other shredders offered by IH.

        Lance, didn't you say that you saw some pics of the Amerind Mackissic version that had better pics?

        Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's obsolete!

          Is this the same? Looks like it is.... just maybe a bit newer.

              Well, this way we now know that it has a chipper plate in it, and not just the hammermill!

                  I considered it, but I don’t think I can. If I mount it in the proper orientation (for rotation), the chipper chute would be facing the tractor and unusable. I was hoping I could just set it on the 59M subframe.

                    Drive it with a rear PTO......
                    I know you have one.

                      I do. In a box. What RPM does that spin at?

                      At WOT they spin right at 540 RPM.... BUT counter clockwise. Backwards of a tractor PTO. Direction isn't an issue. You can et it up to spin the chipper the right speed by either attaching it direct, or use pulleys to get the RPM right. It's very do-able.

                    So here’s a question. Are the 35 and 59 P the same as the 79 c weldment wise except for the chipper attachment and side chute?

                      Good question......
                      I don't think they are, but let's see if we can find that snswer. ​​​​​

                        The 35P is different than all the others. The 59P, 59M, and 79C are all similarly shaped. We have the service manual for all 4 models in our tech section. They are all in the one manual.

                        It's just the service manual though. I can't find an operator's manual for the 79C anywhere. I don't know what size engine it's supposed to have or anything.

                          I went and checked it out yesterday. It’s in really bad shape and the guy didn’t want to move off his $300 price. Said “They still make one just like this and it costs $2,000. This one is worth every bit of $300.”. Yeah, it would probably be worth that price if I could pull the cord and shove a stick in the chute. I don’t understand some people.

                            Lance I spoke with the guy and he is correct. He said his wife has a self propelled mower that pulls a wagon for $100 more than what he wants on c list so his price is very fair.
