The 11.5 is our smallest dedicated chipper, but it packs a serious punch. DR Self-Feeding design allows it to tear through branches up to 3.75 inch in diameter, and do it continuously...without bogging down the way underpowered “big box” machines do.
An easy-grip handle bar makes for a convenient way to maneuver the 11.5 Chipper by hand. You can also add an optional pin-hitch kit that lets you hook up to your lawn tractor or ATV and tow the 11.5 model around your property.
|A large vertically oriented hopper, a precisely-angled heavy-duty chipping knife, and a powerful air channel work together to pull branches into the chipping hopper and blast wood chips out the discharge. Most materials will self-feed, so once you drop a branch in your free to get the next one. No force feeding required!|
|Oversized Chipping Hopper|
|Our big chipping hoppers will accept whole armfuls of small branches at branches at once, or even whole trees and saplings — with little or no trimming of side branches. This saves tremendously on the time you spend pruning and preparing materials for chipping.|
|The key to efficient wood chipping is the rotating mass created by the flywheel on which the chipper knife is mounted. The 11.5 Self-Feeding model features a 14 in. diameter flywheel that’s a half-inch thick and weighs a hefty 25 lbs. It spins at 101 mph and takes an amazing 40 “bites” per second!|
|Briggs and Stratton OHV Engine|
|The legendary power, performance and durability of Briggs & Stratton® engines make them the only ones we use on our DR Chippers. They are easy to start, comfortable to use, and feature a debris management system that protects the engine from whatever you kick up while you’re chipping and shredding.|
|Pro-Spec™ Chipper Knife|
|Made of high-carbon / high-chromium forged alloy tool steel, our knives hold an edge longer than those on "bargain" chippers. Still, as with any cutting tool, keeping a sharp edge is important for maintaining peak performance. We recommend keeping an extra on hand so you can minimize downtime.|
|Add the optional pin hitch and you can easily tow the 11.5 Chipper around your property using your ATV or lawn tractor. (Note: for road-towing ability, step up to either the 16.5 or 21.0 model)|
