personally I would get a small 5-6hp wood chipper/shredder. Check your local craigslist for great deals. You should be able to find a good running one for $150-$200. I believe I saw some people werent gettting a good chop with the flowtrons and had to run it through several times. A wood chipper can shred a bale in like 2-3 minutes. I wouldnt ever ever try to chop any ammount of straw with a weedwacker in a trashcan a single more time in my whole life. Talk about a PITA. Sounds easy but once implemented..........I would rather have lobsters chew my balls.
