The 11.5 Chipper Shredder represents a 20% boost in power from our entry model (the 9.5 model). That means it can handle branches up to 4in in diameter, and can shred bigger yard and garden waste too…up to 3/4in in diameter. Plus, with double the number of shredding hammers, this model shreds material more finely-to 1/12 its original volume.
Shredding is accomplished by 12 free swinging hammers that mash and pulverize materials into a fine organice mulch thats great for recycling into your landscape either by tilling into your garden or feeding your compost pile.
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.
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.
