Wood chippers are industrial machines used to chip away trees that have been cut down in wooded areas. They can be purchased or rented throughout the United States. The costs of purchasing wood chippers are expensive. Wood chipper rentals are more affordable to rent than purchasing. Determining on whether to buy or rent depends on the frequency, size of the project and the allotted budget. Trees are pushed through wood chippers manually and as the trunks, leaves and branches are guided into the wood chipper by the operator each piece is chopped into little pieces. Wood chippers vary in size and horsepower, the bigger and faster the better.

A company that has multiple bids to complete projects that include wood chipping activities would do best buying one. A person who needs to use the wood chipper for a one time project would do best renting the machine.
