I haven't seen a PTO chipper that will do 10" wood.  I have a PTO 
chipper I bought maybe 15 years ago to chip peach prunings.  Used it 
one season and decided it was much easier to shred the prunings in 
windrows between the peach tree rows.  I did once rent a self powered 
chipper that was MUCH easier to use because it had powered feed.

My chipper is available; it's been sitting in the barn for more than 10 
years.  I think it's rated for 3" wood.  Cost about $1700, as I recall.  
Make an offer.  I wouldn't want to fool with crating it for shipping.  
I'm near Austin.

Willie, ONWARD!  Through the fog!
