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!

Wood Chipper Shredder

Wood chipper shredders are brilliant pieces of machinery that are perfect for turning unwanted pieces of wood into useful wood chippings. Whilst selling whole pieces of wood may be possible for some people, others resort to turning excess wood into wood chippings which can be put to good use as compost or for use in play parks.

It's also an eco-friendly way of recycling wood chippings, instead of just dumping or burning the excess wood, it can be used again in a way that is good for the environment. Wood chippings are also highly sought after, so you could even sell large amounts of wood chippings to garden centres or landscapers.

Where to Buy a Wood Chipper Shredder from?

When it comes to buying a wood chipper, it really depends on what sort of wood chipper you want. If you are looking to buy a large, industrial standard wood chipper shredder then you won't find one at your local hardware store. To buy a large wood chipper shredder you will need to buy from a trade specialist, you don't have to be a building firm to buy from a trade specialist either so any large company will be able to buy from them.

If you are buying a wood chipper shredder as a home owner then you'll easily be able to buy one from any hardware store, most hardware stores are highly reputable and reliable outlets but make sure you still buy from one with a good reputation. Also, only buy models from a good brand, if you buy from an unknown or obscure brand then you'll more than likely get a poor quality wood chipper shredder.

It doesn't matter what type of wood chipper shredder you're buying, make sure you always get a warranty, otherwise you could be left with an extremely expensive piece of machinery that is broken, with no way of claiming your money back. Even if you are buying from a reliable outlet, make sure you get a guarantee before you make the purchase.

Safety and Wood Chipper Shredders

Wood chipper shredders are not toys and they are extremely dangerous when they are incorrectly used or in the wrong hands. The only people who should be allowed around wood chippers are people who know exactly how to use the machinery and how to use it safely. It might seem over the top but wood chipper shredders can reduce extremely tough logs of wood into wood chippings in seconds, imagine what they would do to your arm or to your fingers.

The number one rule of safety when using a wood chipper shredder is to never put your arm anywhere near the shredding blades when the machine is on. So if a piece of wood gets jammed, turn the engine off first and kill the power before trying to dislodge the piece of wood, you don't want to injure yourself by getting sucked in with the wood.

Another very simple but necessary piece of safety advice is to wear a plastic visor when near a working wood chipper shredder, this is to protect your face and eyes from pieces of wood that could shoot out.
