Popular Questions

What is the difference between a wood chipper and a chipper/shredder?

You might be thinking, 'Why choose a machine that can do one thing, when I can choose a machine that does two things?' The reality, however, is that the DR Rapid-Feed Wood Chipper and the DR Chipper/Shredder are two very different machines.

DR Rapid-Feed Wood Chippers are the only wood chippers available for homeowners that self-feed most materials. Drop in a branch, and watch it chip on its own, without you force-feeding it! And Rapid-Feed chippers use heavy (up to 76-1/2 lbs.) flywheels that actually store inertia as they spin, so they have immense chipping power - watch them eat branches up to 5-1/2" thick (Pro-XL model) - and are very efficient. DR Chipper/Shredders, on the other hand, divide their engine's power between two inner mechanisms: a lighter-duty chipping flywheel and a shredding rotor with as many as 48 free-swinging hammers. As with any dual-purpose machine, it compromises some of its efficiency for added versatility.

The bottom line is, dedicated DR Rapid-Feed Chippers are simply better at chipping, and are recommended if heavy-duty wood chipping is your first priority. DR Chipper/Shredders are best for homeowners who primarily want to shred yard and garden waste, but also want to be able to chip a few branches here and there.


Do DR Rapid-Feed Chippers really self-feed materials?

Yes! DR Rapid-Feed Wood Chippers will self-feed most materials. We designed them with a large, vertically-oriented hopper, a precisely-angled chipping knife, and an air-injected venting system that draws materials into the chipping mechanism. These innovative features make the DR Rapid-Feed Chipper the only wood chipper available to homeowners that actually self-feeds branches.

What can I use the wood chips or mulch for?

There are lots of uses for the wood chips or mulch that result from using your DR Rapid-Feed Chipper or DR Chipper/Shredder. Wood chips are great for mulching flower beds, covering muddy spots on trails and walkways, or for use as livestock bedding. The mulch from shredded materials decomposes quickly, often within 2 weeks, so it is ideal for making compost to enrich your garden soil.

Are DR Chippers and Chipper/Shredders easy to transport?

Yes! All DR Rapid-Feed Chippers and DR Chipper/Shredders come standard with a mode of transport for maneuvering them around your property. The smaller models have handles and rugged wheels for manual transport, and most have an optional towing kit available. The larger models are towable around your property with an ATV or riding lawn mower, and have optional road towing kits available. Both machines are also available in a 3-point hitch/PTO model compatible with any category 1 tractor.

DR Chipper Reviews

This is no toy, it is well designed, and does what it is suppose too!

"My 16.5 chipper pro with electric start does everything I wanted in a chipper. It tows behind my atv easily . It handles anything from twigs to 4" limbs with ease. the chute almost feeds itself and I have ground up many cubic yards of chip mulch that I use landscaping and in my gardens. Great machine, and well worth the money paid. "

about the 16.50 Pro Rapid-Feed Chipper

The 30.00 Pro-XL exceeded my expectations.

"I was surprised to find the machine met all it's published spec's. I had saved the packaging, thinking I would have to return it, but nows it's all fire wood. The machine starts up quickly, tows with my ATV anywhere I need to go on my 25 acres. I find the machine as effective with brush/twigs as it is with trees (up to 5.25 in.)"

about the 30.00 Pro-XL, Electric Start Rapid-Feed Chipper

Does everything company said it would.

"The chipper arrived on time, was not difficult to assemble and works exactly like it was advertised. Makes quick work of limbs and handles 4" trees like they were butter."

about the 3pt Hitch/PTO Rapid-Feed Chipper

This product works hard.

"I have done a lot of chipping and shredding of various types of material. Hardwood, softwood, thick, thin, vines, and sturdy weed stalks and it handles everything. I have been very pleased with its performance."

about the 14.50 Pro, Manual-Start Chipper Shredder

Over 40 hours and going strong

"This machine is amazing. I'm cutting down and chipping/shredding a Eucalyptus forest of about 250 trees. It makes nice mulch out of the leaves, small branches and acorns. The Chipper part is excellent, works as advertised on branches 4 1/2 inches or smaller. I've been running it every Saturday and Sunday since October and have had nothing but good results."
