Over the last 10 years or so, there have been an increasing amount of chippers for sale as the popularity of the machine has grown (due to an emphasis on environmental friendliness and recycling). But, before running out and buying the first chipper that you see, there are a number of things that you should first take into account to ensure that you are buying the right one.

Why are you buying a chipper?
If you’re only looking for a chipper because you want to dispose of the fallen leaves and twigs in your backyard, a smaller (or even electric) model will suit your needs. If you intend to use your equipment for work (if you’re a landscaper, for example) you will probably need to invest in a larger model, or even a commercially sized one.

How do you want your chipper to be powered?
Ultimately, there are chippers that run off petrol or gas and there are models for sale that run off electricity. An electric model is fine for home use, as you will generally have constant access to a power outlet, but if you’re planning on using your chipper in many different locations, you would be better off with a petrol or gas model.

How much are you will to spend on a chipper?
The cost of a chipper for sale will generally be determined by its size and the way that it is powered. In saying this, a small electric powered model for home use will be considerably cheaper than a commercial petrol-guzzling model for use at work.

When you’re next on the lookout for a chipper for sale, answer the above questions before going to view one. This way, you can help to ensure that you will make the best decision for your needs and your wallet.
