Chew through large amounts of garden waste quickly and easily with this powerful, mobile wood chipper from Hyundai.

Built to make chipping easy, the workhorse 420cc 4-stroke motor powers a rotating blade and anvil mechanism, that not only rips through your garden waste but gives this chipper a self-feeding action for maximum work with minimum effort. This model features electric starting for even simpler operation - just fuel up and turn the key.

Munch through branches up to 70-100mm in diameter depending on type and hardness of the wood, keeping in mind that dry hardwoods such as manuka and mapou will need to be significantly smaller to chip effectively.

Built tough with all steel construction, this is a heavy-duty machine, but is easy to manoeuvre with its twin hopper handles, large diameter, extra wide pneumatic tyres. It’s also a great option for larger properties thanks to the included 50mm tow bar mount (off-road use only), so you can take it to where the work is. The hopper is hinged for easy blockage clearance, while the extended, adjustable discharge chute is especially handy for feeding directly onto a trailer, ute deck or wheelbarrow.

The precision HSS blades and hardened steel anvil cut clean and fast, while the twin v-belt drive design gives smooth running, better shock load protection and simple servicing.

Suitable for larger properties and frequent use, this machine is capable of chipping and shredding large quantities of wood and branches into easily handled chippings quickly and effortlessly.

Order today and take the effort out of maintaining your property.

q: Will this handle 40mm manuka branches?
a: It may do it if it's green, however especially dried this is very hard wood so this it may be a step too far - it's lovely wood though, how about using it for the fire or smoker?!

q: in the Q & A you say it won't handle leaves and flax. I assume it would handle leaves attached to a tree branch though ?
a: Yes leaves on a branch will be fine.

q: Will it mulch as well?
a: It depends on your meaning of mulch, if you mean can it handle grass and leaves then no. However the chips from this make great mulch, add a 100mm layer onto your garden and it will enhance plant growth by retaining moisture, prevent weed germination and save you water!

q: How about mature bamboo?
a: Yes, although like any wood it depends on the size etc.

q: Hi, can this chipper handle flax?
a: No, this is not designed for flax, it's too stringy and fibrous to be processed effectively.

Awesome chipper!!

3 months ago


Very impressed, it can be assembled by a single person with a bit of mechanical know how, but two persons would make it easier. Although the main engine and chipper come assembled unit, ensure all nuts and bolts including e-stop button are a few rattled loose on first operation. Performance wise this will draw branches in faster than it can process them, thus stalling itself, controlling the feeding of the branches ensures a great smooth operation, I have fed a 100mm branch into it, it will do it but really that’s fire wood size and it shakes like a bastard with that size in it. Really happy with my purchase.

We have already done 15 trailer loads mulching bamboo and it works well. Suggestions, the machine is quite unstable to tow around lifestyle block and easily tips over. Would suggest widened wheelbase. Add a flap to back of top nozzle as when pointing down a lot of chip blows back at user. If possible adjust loading on tow bar as heavy to lift. Otherwise very happy. Thanks

This chipper has performed brilliantly! It has heap of torque and I have worked its guts out for two weeks around our property. Its bloody noisy but so what! My neighbor came over to see what it was all about and now he wants to borrow it ! It does struggle a bit with 100mm branches but otherwise its a cracker of a machine. Ya wont regret it if ya get one.

I am happy so far (used the machine for 4 hrs) I knew prior to purchasing this chipper that it would only handle wood 50mm and under consistently. It can take up to 100mm but must be very soft wood!. The chipper does exactly what it should do as long as maintenance is kept up. Keeping the blades sharp is very important and can be done easily in about 30 minutes. I recommend rotating and then sharpening the blades after every 2hrs work.

This is a powerful machine well suited to the larger garden.The instructions state what dimension of wood that the machine can handle and it does.The machine is easily assembled using the instructions provided.The engine starts very easily. The instructions are very clear as to what one should not do- such as put fingers anywhere near the drum with the knives when clearing any twig that may have been left in the system at shut down. Easy to clear by following instructions as to how to turn the chipping mechanism with a spanner. The instructions tell it all.

Definitely will not chip 100 mm tree branches, very sensitive the type of branches it will handle. 2 inch or less is more like it. Considering the two reasons I bought it was the capacity and the fact it was a Hyundai. In reality neither is true! It is in fact Chinese manufacture with a lifan engine and licensed by Hyundai. Frankly I consider Your description Grossly "exaggerated" and am likely to File a complaint to the ASA

Reply from Trade Tested

The quoted 100mm max is a tested max chipping capacity, this is a standard measurement across retailers of this product. This is tested using freshly cut wood with at least 80% moisture content (in this case paulownia). With the huge range of material put through a chipper there needs to be a way to differentiate between the capability of different models and this is the accepted method. It's generally understood that wood type and condition play a huge part in what can be chipped, and that a lot of woods will be not be able to be chipped at the maximum quoted diameter.

I had been looking for a while then found the Hyundai wood chipper pickup was a breeze was easy to assemble installed the oil moved in position and turned the key it started first time. It's very powerful and great that it can handle everything in the one chute and it comes from Hyundai with strong build quality. It is heavy to move the big wheels help a bit
