The Paddock™ portable, petrol engine wood chipper quickly and effectively chips and mulches all your garden and farming debris. With a massive 17HP 4-stroke engine, this unit is suitable for light commercial applications and is ideal for small acreage and farming. The modern horizontal drum design allows for chipping of most materials including hard woods and large branches.
The Paddock™ horizontal drum chipper design has been engineered with greater simplicity which aids in its performance. The heavy duty rotating drum design develops great inertia, allowing it to chip larger diameter branches in a range of materials including common Australian hardwoods. The unit utilises brute power rather than ultra sharp blades to mulch meaning it is less prone to ongoing servicing to achieve optimal performance.
The Paddock™ chipper is simple to relocate around your property as it's supplied with a tow hitch, heavy duty chassis and large off-road wheels. The trailer is not road registerable but can be towed behind your quad bike, ATV or farm utility at slow speeds around your property. The chipper comes with an adjustable discharge chute allowing the chips to be directed and collected as desired.
With a large inlet hopper users can feed modestly sized branches with ease. The deep chute makes for a safe operating design which limits the users interaction with the heavy duty hammer blades.
The unit runs two rotating heat treated hammer blades along with a heavy duty fixed blade. The feed material is chipped with ease thanks to the high engine power and great spinning inertia. Having fixed and rotating blades means the wear and tear from daily use is localised to simple to replace consumable components. The chippers blades are straight forward to access and spares are available.
Powered by a Ducar 17hp commercial petrol 4-stroke engine, the Paddock™ chipper is well powered to perform. Ducar is one of the worlds largest air cooled engine manufacturer with products in most established countries. Ducar engines meet strict emissions standards and are well proven across Australia. The engine comes fitted with dual starting options to allow manual recoil or electric start.
The unit is fitted with dual Kevlar drive belts that ensure the power from the powerful engine is effectively delivered to the rotating chipper drum.
When it comes to chipper designs, stronger and heavier is better. The Paddock™ chipper uses a heavy weight, horizontal drum design with heat treated hammer blades to smash through timbers of all hardness. The units overall quality is evident by the heavy steel construction. Oversized, easy to access and grease bearings support the rotating anvil/drum and ensure smooth performance. With a chipping capacity of 120mm diameter branches, this unit is extremely capable and will handle common acreage debris. Having a higher powered chipper makes yard work faster and less strenuous on the operator.

Over the years we have had several chippers, all of them have been under performers. The paddock unit that we recently purchased has exceeded our expectations. Even when doing our seasonal bush fire season preparation work with the machine running for hours it has never missed a beat.
The machine arrived within 24 hrs of purchase ,the sales man was super helpful.
The machine was simple to put together , it is heavy so a second pair of hands would have been good.
Its a BEAST. Seemed to like chipping wood more than small branches but ate it all up and begged for more. I honestly couldn't feed it quick enough.
Tows nicely behind my yard tractor, fits in the back of my van (under 1500mm tall)
I did jam it once but the clutch must have kicked in I idled it down and pulled a few branches out and away she went again.
Full throttle seems to be best.
Its early days but so far I'm super impressed. I'll submit a second review once I have had time to "ride it hard and put it away wet". (Its similar to other Chinese models on YouTube)
