A friend has a farm in the Wairarapa and last time I visited I recorded a few implements and was reminded of this one when I saw a photo online, where someone was towing a wood chipper that they had splatter painted the inside red! A flashback to that traumatic scene in Fargo perhaps?

This wood chipper is quite powerful, running off 3 phase power the motor powers up fast but has a slow wind down. So we recorded a range of pine branches & offcuts being shredded in it, and each time we stopped to have a break I captured the slow wind down.

They also use a pneumatic branch clipper, so I recorded some of it. They are basically an air powered pair of heavy duty scissors or shears and makes an interesting hiss prior to a solid metallic clank.

Recorded exterior 24bit 96kHz using four microphones:
– Sennheiser MKH8040 LR
– Sennheiser MKH8050 C

These recordings are output 24bit 96kHz
