Massive Solid-Steel Flywheel
The PRO-XL model’s chipping knife is mounted to a flywheel that is cut from heavy steel (3/4" thick) and weighs 33 pounds. The spinning flywheel provides the inertia necessary for the chipper knife to power through knotty, hardwood branches at an incredible 38 bites per second.
The Pro-XL model’s chipper hopper opening (9" x 13") accepts 4.5” branches with little or no trimming of side branches. The shredder hopper opening is 20” x 18”, big enough to accept multiple stalks of quarter-inch thickness or less along with side branches and leaves.
The Pro-XL model features 48 free-swinging hammers that shred garden waste, lawn clippings, and weeds into useful, nutrient-rich mulch for your garden and flower beds. Each long-lasting hammer has three positions, allowing you to switch to a fresh set of shredding edges when performance starts to decline.
Heavy-Duty Steel Frame
Many chippers look like they're built to sit in one place. DR Chippers are made to be on the move, so you can get your chipper wherever you need to be on your property. We use rugged, welded-steel frames designed to withstand transport over punishing terrain year after year.
The Pro-XL model has DOT-approved tires and is road-towable at speeds up to 45 mph.
Powerful Vanguard Engine
The Pro-XL model Chipper/Shredder is powered by a high-end Vanguard model Briggs & Stratton engine. With 30.00 ft./lbs. of torque, it has plenty of power for tough projects and outstanding durability.
The commercial-grade centrifugal clutch used on our chippers is similar to those used in well drilling. There is no load on the engine until it reaches 1,600 rpm. If you do manage to find a branch tough enough to slow the engine to 1,600 rpm, the clutch will automatically disengage the engine until it's back up to speed.

I am interested in purchasing your 18hp model chipper shredder. Can you give me some idea of how difficult it is to replace the chipper knives and hammers when they wear out? Cost?
As a home owner in a HOA subdivision we are limited in space between houses, anything that needs to be moved needs to be lite or electric at the power source. With a yard waste curb service I find myself bundling up my waste and driving to the local store for mulch. I need an electric chipped that is self feed and can handle Palm frons from a Royal Palm. 4.5 inch in diameter.
