There isn’t much that can stand up to the mighty Crary® Bear Cat® 9-inch chippers. Based on solid 4-inch “C” channel frame with torsion axle suspension, these machines make branches and trees up to 9 inches in diameter disappear. Features include a 15-inch diameter feed roller containing 10 knife blades, four reversible chipping blades, adjustable 4-sided anvil and an 8-inch round discharge chute.
The 30-inch diameter, 1.25-inch thick dynamically-balanced chipper disc weighs 275 pounds and producing tremendous chipping power.
A triple banded belt drive generates positive power, and a hydrostatic feed control provides the operator with infinite feed settings for all types and sizes of debris. A telescoping tongue along with torsion axle suspension makes towing easy. Service and maintenance is made easy by a hinged disc cover.
With 18 gallons in the fuel tank, you’ll create piles of chips between refills. 2″ coupler standard.
Battery sold separately. See Battery Usage Chart for details.

How difficult is it to perform maintenance on the machine?
Crary® Bear Cat® products are designed with ease of maintenance in mind. Proper maintenance is vital and should be performed routinely with blades, belts and bearings being most important.
How long will the chipper blades last?
Depending on the type of wood, age and cleanliness, chipper blades will work well for between 5-15 hours. Dry, dirty wood will dull the blades faster. Alternate dry and wet material to extend blade life. Hydraulic feed machines will have longer blade life.
What are these Chippers designed for?
The Crary® Bear Cat® Chipper is designed to effectively reduce the volume of wood, branches, and other organic material. The typical application for this product group is anywhere from light to commercial to municipalities, and/ or rental.
What is the maximum size of material will these machines chip?
A Crary® Bear Cat® 9” Chipper will chip up to 9“ diameter material.
What type of Chippers are available?
Crary® Bear Cat® makes Chippers with gravity or hydraulic feed, powered by an engine package or a tractor PTO. A hydraulic feed machine has a hydraulic driven feed roller to efficiently feed branches to the chipper disc.
When should I buy a gravity feed machine?
If you have an infrequent need for a Chipper and time is not a factor, a gravity feed machine will fit your needs.
When should I buy a hydraulic feed machine?
If time or efficiency is an issue, a hydraulic feed Chipper allows you to be more productive.
When should I chip?
If you don’t plan on composting the material, material is green and stringy or larger than 3/4″ in diameter.
