There isn’t much that can stand up to this Crary® Bear Cat® 9 inch chipper! It’s powered by a 2.2L Kubota diesel engine. Based on a solid 4-inch “C” channel frame with torsion axle suspension, this chipper makes branches and trees up to 9 inches in diameter disappear. The CH922DH features a dynamically-balanced 30 x 1.25 inch thick rotor that weighs 275 pounds and produces tremendous chipping power.
The CH922DH now features a Digital Display Controller (DDC) hydraulic feed system with a variable speed feed roller with instant reverse.
The DDC features:
• Movable Digital TFT screen for easy viewing, even in bright sunlight conditions
• Soft key menu selection buttons for simple user navigation
• Pre-programmed maintenance schedule reminders
• Hydraulic system diagnostic capabilities
• Troubleshooting screens to provide in-field help
• Pre-programmed with English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Norwegian, Russian and Chinese
• Tested in the most extreme conditions to ensure longevity
The Chippers’ hydraulic feed system is electronically controlled. If the rotor speed drops below optimal operational RPM range, the controller pauses the feed roller to allow the rotor to regain speed, and then restarts feeding once optimal rotor RPM is achieved. This AutoFeed function allows for less fatigue on wear parts and maximizes efficiency.
Additional features include a 15-inch diameter feed roller containing 10 knife blades, four reversible chipping blades made from heat-treated tool steel, adjustable 4-sided anvil and an 8-inch diameter discharge chute.
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. 2″ coupler standard.
With 18 gallons in the fuel tank, you’ll create piles of chips between refills.
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.
