Maybe a wood chunker would fill your needs better than a wood chipper.




They’re fairly easy to make and you already have the tools and knowledge to build one.

More examples here.

Just a suggestion...

Sterling might be cool but I won't hold my breath for any external-combustion engine to become viable again for automobile usage.
For a conventional drive-line they are quite terrible, but maybe as a range extender it doesn't matter that you have to plan ahead to start and stop the engine.

It looks like the wood chunk is turning perfectly sized fire wood in to wood chunks.
Any 2 inches and up is fire wood. Anything down to 1 inch can be fire wood depending on how much twigs are on there.
I'm trying to turn twigs and even leaves that would normally go into a brush pile then be open air burned and turn it into much more compact, easier to move, easier to store, dry out s lot faster and can quickly be loaded into the coal furnace, compared to raw green twigs.

Indeed, they seem to be better for a fixed-speed operation.
