Gas Chipper Shredder Buyer's Guide

How to Pick the Perfect Chipper Shredder

By  | Chipper Product Expert

You turn tree trunks and large limbs into firewood. But why not turn the small branches and twigs into mulch?

If you own acres of land and frequently cut down and clear trees, you can make the most of your tree debris with the help of a chipper shredder.

You can find PTO chipper shredders available for industrial purposes. However, if you're not a logging or forestry professional, a gas-powered chipper shredder will provide all the power you need and then some.

Gas chipper shredders come in two styles:

  • Portable chipper shredders
  • Tow-behind chipper shredders

Whichever you choose, you'll save money in the long run by buying a chipper shredder instead of renting one every year.


Portable Gas Chipper Shredders

Portable Gas Chipper ShredderPortable chipper shredders are great for homes that take on yard clean-ups annually. These gas-powered models can handle branches and tree limbs up to 3" in diameter.

Portable chippers can reduce 20 bags of yard debris down to one bag of mulch. They're on wheels so you can push them short distances, but if you need to bring your chipper all over your acres of land, go with a tow-behind model instead.


Tow-Behind Gas Chipper Shredders

Tow-Behind Gas Chipper ShredderTow-behind chipper shredders are available for landowners and professionals alike. Smaller units can handle branches 2-3" in diameter while professional models can demolish branches up to 7" in diameter.

Attach one of these to your ATV, tractor, or with professional units, even to your truck. Look for models with hydraulic feed, which pulls the debris into the chipper for you. If you need to chip seriously large logs, step up to a PTO chipper.
