choosing a chipper, shredder

mulege, Mexico

Does anyone have suggestions for a work horse chipper, shredder? We have lots of palm leaves so advice from people who have those to deal with would be particularly appreciated.

Don't go small - 5hp or better.

Love my Sears 5hp shredder/bagger, but sometimes wish it were bigger.
Usually take 4-8 hours to reduce a brush pile 6 ft high and 20 ft long.

Also, won't handle limbs bigger than about 2.5 inches in diameter - would rather have one that could handle up to 4 in.

Thank you Bubba, that's the kind of information I need.
