DR Power Equipment - Wood Chippers / Shredders

DR Power Wood Chipper

At DR® Power Equipment, we are passionate about the spirit of country living.

Based in rural Vermont, we enjoy caring for our land, and take great pride in beautifying and improving the place we call home. To help us with our passion for independent country living, we appreciate good tools that are durable, simple and useful.

That's why, since 1985, we have been manufacturing and selling tools that make outdoor work easier and more enjoyable. We only offer products that we use ourselves, each one vigorously tested for performance and durability, described truthfully, and guaranteed to be of the best quality and value available.

Professional power for homeowners!
Ordinary, hardware store chipper / shredders have neither the power, nor the durability to chip material much larger than an inch thick. The result is they are painfully slow and impractical. The DR® CHIPPER is much more similar in speed, power, and construction to the professional machines you see road crews using -- but in a machine scaled for homeowners.

DR Power Equipment offers 7 different models to choose from (click on model for more information):

Recycle eyesores into attractive mulch!
Instead of burning or dumping brush and branches, the DR® CHIPPER recycles these materials into wood chips. This material is similar to the mulch that will cost you $3-$4 a bag at your landscape center…and is perfect for mulching around trees, shrubs, and flower beds…or for creating walkways and garden paths.

“Naturalize” entire areas!

With our Top-Discharging Model DR® CHIPPER, you can broadcast mulch over a large area to “naturalize” a wooded area, a path, a shady area where grass won’t grow, boggy areas, small sink holes, or any area you don’t want to mow. For our other models, simply discharge chips onto a tarp for collection and distribution.

Turbo-Ject™ technology!
Only DR® CHIPPERS feature Turbo-Ject™ technology!
A common problem with ordinary chippers is clogging. To reduce clogging we use specially selected high-torque engines and our own advanced impeller design.

The result is high-speed chipping that’s perfectly matched to the ejection rate of the machine. And that’s why our DR® CHIPPER can take 40 “bites” per second without slowing down!

Commercial-grade centrifugal clutch!
With a centrifugal clutch, there’s no load on the engine when starting. Instead, the engine starts easily and then automatically engages the machine’s heavy chipper flywheel at 1,800 rpm.

“Bargain” chippers use manual clutches, that you have to engage when you’re ready to begin chipping. They wear easily and stall the engine if not engaged at the proper speed.
