Our range of heavy-duty Hyundai wood chippers include petrol-powered and corded electric-powered models.
Our petrol wood chippers are powered by robust Hyundai engines for chipping larger pieces of wood and, due to being cable-free, this means you can use them anywhere in your garden or estate without being limited by cord length.
Our electric wood chippers have powerful, tried and tested Hyundai motors. With our electric chippers, you won’t have to worry about topping up any oil or fuel - you can easily just plug them in and get started in your garden.
Some of our wood chipping models also have a built-in collection box which keeps all your wood chippings in one place and allows you to dispose of them easily. Chipping your wood will allow you to fit much more of it into your waste or compost bin. You can also use chippings in your garden to reduce weeds in your flowerpots or beds and hold moisture in the soil.
As with all of our Hyundai Garden Machinery range, our wood chippers come with a 3 year platinum warranty for your peace of mind. Shop for electric and petrol wood chippers with the official UK Hyundai distributor. Browse our entire garden machinery range online today.
What should I look for when buying a wood chipper?
When purchasing a wood chipper, consider the following factors:
1. Power source: Decide between electric, gas, or PTO-driven wood chippers based on your needs and availability of power.
2. Chipper capacity: Evaluate the machine's capacity to handle the diameter and type of wood you intend to chip.
3. Cutting mechanism: Choose between disc chippers or drum chippers depending on the desired output and wood chipping requirements.
4. Safety features: Look for essential safety features like hopper locks, emergency stop buttons, and sturdy construction.
5. Portability: Consider the weight, size, and maneuverability of the wood chipper, especially if you plan to move it frequently.
6. Maintenance and support: Assess the availability of spare parts, service centers, and manufacturer support for maintenance and repairs.
Can you use wood chipper on a wet wood?
It is generally not recommended to use a wood chipper on wet wood. Wet or damp wood can be more challenging to chip due to its higher moisture content. The moisture can cause clogging, reduce the chipper's efficiency, and potentially damage the machine. It's best to allow the wood to dry out before chipping it for optimal performance and to prevent potential issues. If you need to chip wet wood, consider using a chipper specifically designed for wet or green wood, or consult the manufacturer's guidelines for recommendations on chipping wet materials.
How big of a log can a wood chipper take?
The size of logs that a wood chipper can handle depends on the specific model and its capacity. Wood chippers typically have a maximum log diameter capacity specified by the manufacturer. Common sizes range from 4 inches to 10 inches in diameter. It's important to select a wood chipper with a capacity that meets your specific needs. If you plan to chip larger logs, consider a chipper with a larger capacity or a commercial-grade model designed for heavy-duty applications. Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines and recommendations to ensure safe and efficient operation of the wood chipper.
How long do wood chipper blades last?
The lifespan of wood chipper blades can vary depending on factors such as usage, the type of wood being chipped, and the maintenance practices followed. On average, well-maintained wood chipper blades can last anywhere from 40 to 100 hours of operation. However, this can vary significantly based on the specific chipper model, the quality of the blades, and the intensity of the cutting tasks. It is important to regularly inspect the blades for signs of wear, sharpen or replace them as needed, and follow the manufacturer's guidelines for blade maintenance to ensure optimal performance and longevity.
