"We live in the woods and we can't burn. But now I can just
haul the DR around on the back of my lawn tractor and pull up to a
brush pile, grind it up and move on to the next brush
"I just leave the chips right
on the ground. And when I use it I don't have to force feed it. It
methodically chews stuff right up. I've chipped pine, cedar,
sweetgum, and lots of bushes.
"I looked around at some other
machines and even though the DR was more expensive, I do like your
products. It's all good quality, first-rate machinery. I've got a
much better machine than some of the others I've seen and I think
mine is going to last much longer. The construction is much better
and you can tell it's going to last. Also, none of the other
chippers I saw could handle something up to 4-1/2 inches. All the
others had a limit of two or three inches and I needed something
bigger than that.
"It works and I just know that
it isn't going to break down half way through the summer. It's just
what I hoped it would be."
really never liked the mess, the smoke, and the clean-up after
burning brush piles."
"I'm using the DR to clean up
a bunch of scrub oak, which is pretty tough stuff, and it handles
it with no problem at all. Each one was 3"- 3 1/2" in diameter and
it just gobbles them up. When I chipped some small pines and
juniper it didn't even notice it. I've always had a real good
experience with your products."
-Bruce Wright, Colorado Springs,
basically having a lot of fun!"
"What I've got is a place in
the pines of northern Arizona and I'm cutting down the shrubbery.
I'm using your DR Trimmer/Mower with the saw blade to cut down a
lot of small 3"- 5" trees. Then I use the DR Chipper to chip them
up. I'm basically having a lot of fun!
"I haven't been able to lug
it down yet. I'm one hundred percent pleased with it. You can put
me down as a very happy customer!"
-Will Loyd, Gilbert,
"I'd give the
DR Chipper an A+ for performance!"
"I have a lot of trees up at my
cabin that I'm constantly trimming. But there's tight restrictions
here that nobody can get rid of brush anymore, and we had a huge
pile. I had everything from birch to oak branches, pine branches,
you name it. Mixed hardwood and softwood. Green and dry. It
surprised the heck out of me how well the DR worked on that dry
stuff, considering how hard it was.
"I'd give the DR an A+ for
performance! It's a marvelous machine."
Moeller, Golden Valley,
"It chips hardwoods and it even went right through
cherry, and that's pretty tough."
"It's a very good machine--well
built and well worth the money. Everybody was impressed with the way
it chips. Usually with big chipping machines you get big wood chips.
The DR does a really nice job of manicuring fine chips.
"I've got a business caretaking
properties and we've been chipping branches that have been piling up
for years. It chips hard woods and it even went right through
cherry, and that's pretty tough. As long as I can get it in the
chute, it can handle it. It can handle the big stuff and it does the
"Storms come through
here all the time and it just gets to be an eyesore and pain with
all these branches on the ground. I live in a county where you're
not allowed to burn brush. So before I bought the DR I was hauling
brush up to my property in Pennsylvania about once or twice a year
to burn it. I'd have to make three or four trips each time and my
vehicle would get all scratched up loading the brush. Now I can chip
up the brush and use the woodchips for mulch. One of my customers
grows blueberry bushes. It's perfect for that.
"The main reason I like it is
that it's small. It doesn't take up a lot of room in the garage and
I can maneuver it. All I had to do was see the DR. I know the
quality products you sell. Your machines are top-of-the-line--you
have the best built machines around. For the size of it and what it
can do it's well worth the money."
"I was disgusted with the idea of having brush piles
accumulating because I couldn't get them burned."
"I bought the DR for use at a
camp I have in the country. I've had a burn permit every year for
burning brush, but in the last three or four years I haven't been
able to burn. In the winter there would be too much snow and then
almost overnight the snow is gone and it's too dry to take a chance
on it. I was disgusted with the idea of having brush piles
accumulating because I couldn't get them burned.
"Now when I'm clearing out a
patch of brush I just feed it right into the chipper as I go. I also
chipped up some stuff that I cut last year that was very dry. I've
made some good mixed woodchips that I use in the garden and around
my raspberry bushes. It does the trick."
"What I really like is the power."
"I've been chipping small
trees and shrubbery. Some of it has been laying around for a few
years and some of it's fresh cut stuff, and the DR chips it up
easily. Plus, the machine's not too heavy, so I can move it around
"I had been storing the brush
in a big pile. I'm in the city limits and they don't let you burn,
so I just stored the brush in a big pile, which was really messy.
What I really like is the power. It doesn't give me any problems
going through this stuff so I can get the job done quickly."
Phipps, Albuquerque, New Mexico
"It's powerful and it feeds real well."
"I've used it on cedar and
I've used it on ash up to three inches in diameter and I've been
real pleased with it. It makes an awfully nice chip that we've
been putting around our trees and in the flower garden. I'm also
going to put some around my bushes so I don't have to trim, I can
just mow around them.
"I thought about getting a
chipper that fits on our tractor but that ties up the tractor. And
I looked at some five or six horsepower chippers, but there just
aren't too many larger chippers available. I had a five horsepower
chipper and it just beats your hands to death when you're feeding
branches into it. The DR is much nicer--it's powerful and feeds
real well. We've had a lot of luck with our DR Mower and I decided
the DR Chipper looked like a good deal."
