Dr wee chipper

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever had,used or own a DR pro wood chipper 

I have the cs100 which is a lovely machine but it just seems a lot of effort constantly standing there pushing the stuff in sometime for it to hurt your arms with the vibrations. Looked at the DR range the big one specifically XL looks a tidy mean machine and my local dealer I use for all my machinery deal with them. But want to find out what there like before I go buy one

I would say if you're pushing stuff in against the vibrations the blades are blunt. CS100 should be self feeding, and a quick look at the DR all I'm seeing is gravity feed so the issue would be the same.

I would suggest spend a bit of money on spare blades so you can swap over while some are being reground, rather than a new chipper. I use a diamond stone on mine to keep the edge razor sharp.

I say it's a bit like chainsaw, if you are wondering whether it needs a sharpen then it already does.
