We gave the 11.5 Chipper Shredder 20% more power than our entry model, and we offer a pin-hitch kit option for towing it around your property. It will devour 4" branches with ease, and shred 3/4" thick yard waste.
Oversized Hoppers: The shredder hopper opening is 19" x 13.2", for easily dropping in leaves and prunings by the armload. The chipper hopper will accept branches up to 4" in diameter.
12 Free Swinging Hammers: Shredding is accomplished by 12 free swinging “hammers" that mash and pulverize materials into a fine organic mulch that's great for recycling into your landscape—either by tilling into your garden or feeding your compost pile.
Off-Road Towing: Add the optional pin hitch and you can easily tow the 11.5 Chipper with Shredder around your property using your ATV or lawn tractor.
Briggs and Stratton OHV Engine: The legendary power, performance and durability of Briggs & Stratton® engines make them the only ones we use on our DR Chippers. The 11.5 FPT Chipper Shredder uses a durable 250cc Overhead Valve, easy-starting engine. It features a debris management system that protects the engine from whatever you kick up while you're chipping and shredding.
Pro-Spec™ Chipper Knife: Made of high-carbon/high-chromium forged alloy tool steel, our knives hold an edge longer than those on "bargain" chippers.. Still, as with any cutting tool, keeping a sharp edge is important for maintaining peak performance. We recommend keeping an extra on hand so you can minimize downtime.
