The mid-range DR Pro 16.50 RS self-feeding petrol wood chipper will help you keep ahead of accumulating garden debris by transforming it into useful landscaping material.
The dedicated chipper features a large intake hopper, the opening of which measures 43cm x 68cm, capable of accepting branches up to 12cm in diameter. Most materials will self-feed so once you drop a branch in, you are free to retrieve the next piece.
The self-feeding design of the vertically oriented hopper, precisely angled chipping knife and powerful air channel combine to draw materials in and spit them out of the extended discharge chute. The sharp, hard-wearing Pro-Spec chipper knife is made out of high-carbon / high-chromium hardened D2 steel for excellent edge-holding ability. The knife is mounted on a heavy-duty 22.6kg flywheel with a 45.5cm diameter that rotates at 128mph and takes an amazing 40 "bites" per second. Five oversized steel flywheel fins strike chipped material 9600 times per minute, blasting material out of the machine. The inertia created by the flywheel lets the work go smoothly with less strain on your machine.
The extended discharge chute allows you to load chips directly into your pickup bed, cart or wheelbarrow, so you don't have the hassle of collecting the discharged mulch up off the ground.
DR chooses a legendary 420cc Briggs & Stratton engine with overhead valve technology to power the Pro 16.50 RS chipper. The easy-pull, manual-start engine will almost always start on the first pull and delivers an impressive 16.50 foot pound torque. It also features a debris management system that protects the engine from flying debris.
The chipper is supplied with a hitch pin which enables it to be towed to and from the work area with either a garden tractor or an ATV.
Most impressively, in over 300 hours of testing, DR's testers have never experienced any clogging whatsoever!
