A tree chipper, also known as a woodchipper, is a machine used to grind wood into smaller woodchips, often tree limbs or trunks. They can regularly be moved because they are mounted on wheels-equipped frames that may be pulled by a truck or van. Typically, an internal combustion engine generates power between 2 and 700 kilowatts (3 to 1,000 horsepower). There are also high-power chipper models that are mounted on trucks and powered by separate engines. These kinds typically also come with a hydraulic winch.
Wood chippers typically consist of a hopper with a collar, the actual chipper mechanism, and an optional chip collection bin. The hopper is filled with a tree limb, which is then started into the chipping mechanism. The chips can either be directed onto the ground or into a truck-mounted container as they exit through a chute.
The output standard is 2.5 to 5 cm wide chips. The resulting wood chips can be distributed as a ground cover or fed into a digester while creating paper, among other uses.
Most woodchippers operate by using energy that is stored in a large flywheel (although some use drums). The flywheel’s face is equipped with chipping blades, and an internal combustion engine or an electric motor accelerates the flywheel.
