Choices choices! Our advice: skip the under-$500 machines (they’re only effective on leaves and small twigs, and are simply too slow for rural property owners). For lots up to five acres get a well-built, gas-powered unit you can simply push from place to place or load onto a small trailer. It will cost you $500 to $2,000, but you’ll be rewarded with fast chipping and years of durable service. For a property over five acres, consider a heavy-duty model pulled behind your truck, tractor, or ATV. Costs range from $2,000 to $7,000 for machines that chip branches up to 5” in diameter.
