Explanation: It's a loud machine that you feed branches, sticks, etc. into and makes maleable chips out of them that are easily disposable. It;s used a lot in the north country where I live - in fact it's downright mandatory if you have trees on your land if you don't want to do a LOT of sawing (just to get rid of dead branches) - also mandatory here if a tree falls or is cut down. (There's no other "legal way" to dispose of it.) If you've ever seen the movie "Fargo" you've seen one. Anyway, hope this helps you! Suerte!
