The 16.5 model features our DR Self-Feeding design that will let you tear through branches up to 4.75 inches in diameter without bogging down. A vertically oriented hopper, precisely angled chipping knife and powerful air channel draw materials in and spit them out the chute.

The 16.5 foot pounds of torque Briggs and Stratton OHV engine is available with your choice of starters. The easy-pull, manual-starting option will almost always start on the first pull. Or you can opt for the turn-key electric starting model (with recoil backup).

Standard Features

Self-Feeding Action
 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
 The big opening for branches (17 x 27 in.) accepts 4.75 in. branches with little or no trimming of side branches.   
Road Towing
 Comes standard with a pin hitch, so you can tow it around your property using your riding mower or an ATV.   
Heavy-Duty Flywheel
 The key to efficient wood chipping is the rotating mass created by the flywheel on which the chipper knife is mounted. The 16.5 Self-Feeding model features a 17.75 in. diameter flywheel that’s 5/8-inch thick and weighs a hefty 50 lbs. It spins at 128 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.  


Road Tow Package
  • Easily tow your chipper on roads at speeds up to 45 mph
