Brunette Machinery’s drum chipper is a robust machine that combines high capacity with superior chipping performance to yield a consistently uniform, quality product suitable for various applications.

With its wide throat, the chipper can accommodate large pieces making it ideal for handling trim blocks, small diameter logs, lily pads, overs and cores. The single piece tapered knives process material across the full width of the drum, providing even wear and longer life.

The contour of the drum creates a clamping force between the material to be chipped and the anvil, preventing the material from tipping up towards the drum.

The drum chipper is equipped with a clam shell opening operated by a hydraulic cylinder to give an ergonomically friendly working area for knife changes, which can be done quickly and easily by one person.


The combination of an angled drop feed, single flat knives and excellent cutting geometry for short wood ensures a superior chip quality with minimal maintenance costs.

The chipper is available in various sizes and both drop feed and horizontal configurations.
