A large vertically oriented hopper, a precisely-angled heavy-duty chipping knife, and a powerful air channel work together to pull branches into the chipping hopper and blast wood chips out the discharge. Most materials will self-feed, so once you drop a branch in your free to get the next one. No force feeding required!
Briggs and Stratton OHV Engine
The legendary power, performance and durability of Briggs & Stratton® engines make them the only ones we use on our DR Chippers. The 16.5 FPT Self-Feeding Chipper uses a durable 420cc Overhead Valve, easy-starting engine. It features a debris management system that protects the engine from whatever you kick up while you’re chipping and shredding.
The key to efficient wood chipping is the rotating mass created by the flywheel on which the chipper knife is mounted. The 16.5 Self-Feeding model features a 17.75” diameter flywheel that’s a half-inch thick and weighs 22kg. It spins at 128 mph and takes an amazing 40 “bites” per second!
Oversized Chipping Hopper
Our big chipping hoppers will accept whole armfuls of small branches at once, or even whole trees and saplings up to 4.75" in diameter — with little or no trimming of side branches. This saves tremendously on the time you spend pruning and preparing materials for chipping.
Pin Hitch Included
The 16.5 wood chipper is supplied with with a pin hitch as standard, so you can tow it around your property using your lawn tractor or an ATV.
Pro-Spec™ Chipper Knife
The Chipping knife on the DR Chippers are made of high-carbon/high-chromium forged alloy steel, and hold an edge longer than those on "bargain" chippers. It is important to keep a sharp edge to maintain peak performance. We recommend keeping an extra knife on hand so you can minimise downtime.
