Choosing the Right 3-Point Hitch Wood Chipper

Wood Chippers are the easiest and quickest way to instantly turn fallen branches and limbs into mulch. If you’ve got a lot of brush to take care of, a wood chipper is – hands down – the best way to go. If you are looking for a wood chipper to use with your tractor, then look no further! In this guide, we’ll help you decide which type of 3-point hitch wood chipper is best for you and your operation.


Tractor Horsepower

There are a few things to consider when deciding on a 3-point hitch wood chipper - the first is tractor horsepower. Since 3-point hitch wood chippers are powered by your tractor’s PTO Shaft, you will definitely need a wood chipper that is built for your tractor’s horsepower range. Just keep in mind that if you will be chipping larger diameter branches, not only will you need a wood chipper that matches the HP range, but you’ll also want to make sure that your tractor meets the minimum recommended horsepower for maximum capacity. This will make sure that your wood chipper is running at top speed and performance.

Branch Size

The second most important thing to take into account is branch size. Whether you’re going to be chipping small sticks or larger branches, there is a wood chipper built for your exact needs. If you’ll mostly be chipping smaller sticks, you won’t need a high horsepower wood chipper. On the other hand, if you’ll ever need to chip larger branches, it might be a good idea to get a more heavy duty chipper. This guide will give you a better idea of how much horsepower you’ll need, based on the width of the branch.

Shredder Options

The third and final thing to consider when picking out a wood chipper is the shredder option. While chippers are great at chipping branches, sometimes you just need to mulch debris such as smaller brush and leaves. Shredders offer a wider housing opening so you can shred larger bundles of debris. Many wood chippers also offer a secondary chute, meant primarily for shredding leaves and smaller debris.

    Whether you’re a residential homeowner, or a commercial landscaper, there is a wood chipper out there that matches your every need. To learn more about which wood chipper is best for you, give our tractor attachment experts a call at (260) 432-9438.
