DR Pro 16.5, Rapid Feed Chipper Pro With the 16.50 PRO model you get 30% more chipping power than our PREMIER model. That means you can chip larger branches, faster, which saves lots of time. A big hopper means you can drop material in with minimal pruning of side branches. And most material will self-feed, instead of you needing to force-feed it through. P P Estates will supply these machines over a wider area than our normal delivery area so if you are further away give us a call to discuss delivery. P P Estates are based in Uckfield in East Sussex and offer full after sales back up for DR power products.
The PRO model features top-discharge for easy collection of chips into a cart or onto a tarp.
Powerful Air Channel
DR® RAPID-FEED™ CHIPPERS use AIR-INJECTION VENTING, which helps create a vacuum port on the hopper side of the chamber. This powerful airflow draws material into the chipping chamber and prac-tically blasts the chips out the discharge chute. In over 300 hours of testing, our testers never experienced any clogging!
Pro-Spec Chipper Knife
Unlike most “bargain” chipper knives that are made out of stamped steel, our chipper knives are made of high-carbon/high-chromium hardened D2 steel for excellent edge-holding ability.
The knife tips travel at 98-143 mph, depending on the model. This provides faster, cleaner chipping, and helps the knife draw the material into the chipping chamber.
Super-Duty Cogged Belt
The PRO and PRO-XL models feature a cogged drive belt to prevent slipping, for full power transfer from the engine to the flywheel. The belt is also designed to keep its cool, even as it travels 3800 ft/minute. That translates into fewer belts and belt changes over the life of your machine.
Massive Steel Flywheel
Even the biggest hardwood branches won’t slow down the DR® RAPID-FEED™ CHIPPER. That’s because the inertia created by these heavy-duty flywheels lets the work go smoothly with less strain on your machine. Five oversized steel flywheel fins strike chipped material 9600 times per minute, blasting material out of the machine.
