hand fed chippers

The Model 250XP is the ultimate 12" capacity hand-fed disc-style chipper. It has been popular among tree services and municipalities ever since it was introduced in the early 90's. Eventhough drum chippers continue to be an industry favorite, the Model 250XP is still preferred by many due to its powerful feed system, wide infeed hopper, powerful chip throwing velocity and overall ease of use.

(2) Powerful dual feed wheels are driven via 32.3 CID hydraulic motors providing 4,480 pounds of pulling power. The standard hydraulic lift cylinder easily crushes and compresses material reducing chainsaw work. A wide profile 64" wide infeed with fold down tray is standard. For added durability an optional solid tray with heavy-duty rim is recommended.

Gas and diesel engine options are available from 120 to 174 horsepower. All of these combinations make the 250XP the most productive 12" capacity chipper available on the market today.
