What happened to the 'Fargo' Wood chipper?

Speaking of: The Fargo Wood chipper scene

'Fargo' wood chipper is all the buzz as tourist attraction



One of the most famous "stars" in the Coen Brothers' hit movie "Fargo" is appearing in that city starting Saturday as a tourist attraction.

The actual wood chipper prop from the 1996 Oscar-winning movie is part of an exhibit that runs through May 15 at the Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center. Other memorabilia from the movie also will be on display.

"When people outside our community hear 'Fargo,' they think of a film," said Cole Carley, president and CEO of the Fargo-Moorhead Convention and Visitors Bureau. "North Dakota's largest city is commonly associated with the movie, and its famous wood chipper, so we took advantage of that quirky association for a time of celebration."

The wood chipper, a Yard Shark with an 8-horse power Briggs and Stratton engine, is owned by "Fargo" crew member Milo Durben.

While the wood chipper's time on-screen was brief, its use as a body-disposal device made for a disturbingly memorable scene.
