Using your wood chippers was easy, safe, but most importantly, efficient. I used to have an actual forest in my back garden, I don't anymore! Thanks for everything!

Best Wood Chipper

There is no single, definitive best wood chipper as it changes based on what is required from job to job. A commercial wood chipper would be perfect for processing hundreds of large tree logs, but it wouldn't be ideal for someone's back garden when they wanted to get wood chippings from a few large branches. Deciding what the best wood chipper is for a unique situation depends on a few variables and factors.

Amount of Wood

If you have a lot of wood that you need to get through then the best wood chipper for the job would be a very large, commercial wood chipper. They can get through wood extremely quickly and they are also able to handle large quantities of wood, so you could pass through whole tree trunks, instead of cutting them up into more smaller logs first.

However, if you only had a small amount of wood, say a few large branches, then the best wood chipper for you would be a small wood chipper, which you can get from most hardware stores. They'll be able to cut through the wood easily, and whilst it won't be as quick as using a commercial wood chipper, since you only have a small amount of wood, you will still get through it in good time.

Cost of the Wood Chipper

The cost of a wood chipper changes from model to model, typically the smaller and less powerful a wood chipper is the less expensive it is. So if you're on a tight budget and you are looking to permanently buy a wood chipper then the larger models will probably be out of your reach, however the much smaller models will still be available, but not nearly as powerful.

If you need a commercial wood chipper and you don't have enough money to out right buy one, then you can still rent one, it may cost you more in the long term, but it will mean you can use a very good wood chipper when you need it, you won't have to save up any more money to buy one.

Storage for the Wood Chipper

One thing that is often ignored when looking to buy a wood chipper is storage. When people are looking to buy, they get so hung up with how much it can process and at what speed, that they forget to think where they'll actually put the wood chipper when it's not in use.

This isn't a major problem for people who use fairly small wood chippers that are meant for home use, as they can easily fit into a small shed or garage. The only worry would be making sure that the shed or garage is dry, and also that is completely secure as wood chippers are valuable items.

The real trouble starts when people buy very large commerical wood chippers, that are usually mounted on the back of a truck. When it is not on the back of a truck, it will need to be stored somewhere. If you don't have adequate storage in terms of size and security then you'll have no choice but to leave it on the back of a truck, where it will be massively affected by rust.
