Wood chippers are built with a broad range of specifications, although aside from specialised models which are permanently mounted on trucks and provide exceptional levels of power, most are designed to be portable and practical as standalone units. The basic purpose of any wood chipper will be the same - to turn larger logs, planks or branches into small, manageable chips. And what you must consider when buying a used wood chipper is the type of motor that powers it and the size of the chips that are produced.
You may also need to consider the kind of vehicles which will be required to tow this type of equipment, since larger models may need to be hitched to a truck or tractor with a specific amount of horsepower under the bonnet. So with all these variables in mind, choosing a wood chipper should be a rewarding experience.

There are other features of wood chippers that help to define this type of machine more thoroughly. Most will feature a hopper into which wood can be fed, a mechanism for carrying out the chipping process and a chute from which the fresh chips are ejected. You may need to also procure a separate collection bin or trailer so that the chips are easy to manage once produced.
The smallest wood chippers can have motors with as little as three horsepower at their disposal, while larger models with several hundred horsepower are not uncommon. For trailer-style wood chippers, an engine of around 30-50hp is to be expected, so you should check that this important component is in working order, especially if a used model has seen a lot of hours of operation with its former owners.
Economical performance may also be a benefit you seek when buying a wood chipper. And the productivity levels will be impacted not only by the power of the engine, but also by the size of the hopper’s aperture. A larger hopper will allow branches to be inserted without trimming off all of the foliage first, which is a time-saving consideration that you should bear in mind.
