Buying Versus Renting A Wood Chipper

Sometimes, we automatically assume one thing or another without putting much thought into it.  Some people assume that it’s necessary to buy wood chipper’s for sale if they are going to use it on a regular basis.  Other people will automatically assume that buying a wood chipper is a waste of money, when you can rent one for under $100.  Both of these assumptions can be incorrect and can cost you a lot of money.

When deciding whether to buy or rent a wood chipper, you need to determine how often you will use your chipper and what you use it for.  First, if you are using it annually or more, it is worthwhile to look into buying chippers for sale.  However, if you’re only using it every year, it would cost you a lot per use if you buy a brand new wood chipper.  But a lot of times, you can find a great deal on a used wood chipper and make it very affordable for your budget.  The second thing to consider is how many trees you have in your yard and how much you trim off every year.  Some trees require a lot of trimming every year while others only require minimal amounts.  Fruit trees are some that take a lot of trimming every year in order to get bigger, juicier, and more nutritional fruit.

Another important thing to consider is how much pruning you do every year.  Many people forget to take into consideration all the hedges that they prune and the small bushes they have around their property.  Wood chippers range from $200 to several thousand dollars.  Most people won’t need one that is much more than $2000.  However, many of the lower range models will work well for a lot of people.  And then, if you have really big jobs to do every five year or so, you can rent a larger model for a day.
