Choosing the DR 16.50 Pro Rapid-Feed Chipper will give you 30% more chipping power than the entry-level Premier model so you can chip larger branches, quicker and in less time. Thanks to the over-sized hopper, you can drop in material with the minimal pruning of side branches, and most of the material will self-feed, instead of you needing to force feed it.

The DR 16.50 Pro Rapid-Feed chipper is petrol-powered by a high performance Briggs & Stratton OHV engine with manual start, which produces 16.50ft-lbs of torque. The massive solid-steel flywheel provides the inertia necessary for the hardened-steel PRO-SPEC™ chipper knife to slice through knotty, hardwood branches up to 4½" in diameter at an incredible speed. The Pro model features top-discharge...

The Pro model features top-discharge for easy collection of chippings into a trailer or onto a tarpaulin. The chute can be pivoted into different locking positions using a pin and 'r' clip.

Featuring a heavy-duty steel frame, this chipper is built to be on the move and can be transported around your property by simply using the handle built into the hopper or using the tow hitch. Large pneumatic tyres roll smoothly over the ground for easy, comfortable transportation.

For the big jobs and fast performance, the DR Rapid-Feed chipper has the power to get it done right!

Briggs & Stratton Engine

Powerful and reliable Briggs & Stratton engine

 

Over-Sized Hopper

The large hopper will accept whole bundles of small branches at once, or even whole trees and saplings, with little or no trimming of side branches, which saves considerably on the time spent pruning and preparing the material for chipping. Air injection venting helps create a vacuum port on the hopper side of the chamber. This powerful airflow draws material into the chipping chamber and practically blasts the chips out of the discharge chute. In over 300 hours of testing, DR's testers experienced no clogging!

 

Self-Feeding

The sharp chipper knife allows DR Rapid-Feed wood chippers to self-feed 90 per cent of the material put in, which eliminates the need to force-feed the material. This speeds up the branch processing speed with far less effort required. Unlike most “bargain” chipper knives that are made out of stamped steel, DR chipper knives are made of high-carbon/high-chromium hardened D2 steel for excellent edge-holding ability. The knife tips travel at 98-143 mph, depending on the model. This provides faster, cleaner chipping, and helps the knife draw the material into the chipping chamber

 

Solid-Steel Flywheel

Even the biggest hardwood branches will not get stuck thanks to the flywheel which is cut from ¾" thick heavy steel and weighs 34lbs. The massive flywheel provides the inertia necessary for the chipper knife to power through knotty hardwood branches at an incredible 40 bites per second. Five oversized steel flywheel fins strike chipped material 9600 times per minute

 

Heavy-Duty Steel Frame

DR chippers are built to be on the move so they can be operated anywhere on your property. The rugged welded-steel frames are designed to withstand transport over punishing terrain year after year

 

 

Commercial-Grade Clutch

The commercial-grade centrifugal clutch is similar to those used in well drilling. There is no load on the engine until it reaches 1600rpm. In the unlikely event of finding a branch tough enough to slow the engine to 1600rpm, the clutch will automatically disengage the engine until it is back up to speed

 

Super-Duty Cogged Belt

The cogged belt prevents slipping for full power transfer from the engine to flywheel. The belt is also designed to keep its cool, even as it travels 3800ft/minute. That translates into fewer belts and belt changes over the life of your machine
