The classic PTO chipper is driven directly from the tractor’s PTO. These chippers need heavy flywheels to store energy between knife cuts and to even out the load on a tractor’s engine. Recently, smaller units have come into the market.
Often the PTO chipper is almost as powerful and much more maneuverable than the larger units. You can simply drop items into the chute for smaller items and with larger items, the machine will self-feed. Most units allow you to control the size of the wood chip produced.
