A chipper truck is a type of dump truck used to transport wood chips. It is characterized by an opening in the top of the rear wall that the wood chipper’s chute can be aimed to fill the dump body.
These trucks are highly useful for reducing wood debris and can be instrumental for communities looking for ways to reuse trees that have had to be cut for utility companies, collected after Christmas, or even collected after storms dislodge branches and trees.
These trucks are available in light, medium and heavy use varieties and can handle a wide range of types of wood debris to chip or mulch. The reduced chips are excellent choices for landscaping and gardening projects and have even been used as playground surfaces for its ability to help reduce playground injuries.
The chute arm feature on most chipper trucks allows precise aiming for wood chip delivery and options to spread delivery out over an area.
