Hi guys, I'm looking for a cheap lesson. I'm considering purchasing a 1995 Vermeer 1250 85hp diesel. Does anyone have experience with this machine? It has a 12" capacity and has the side by side roller feed. From what I've read it has some design flaws but is a loyal machine. Its self feeding but not auto feed, is that going to be a HUGE problem? I figure we will have to play the safety bar on bigger logs but thats not a huge deal to me. I'm not a huge company at this point. The chipper is priced great, and seems to have been well maintained. Thoughts?
