Beever™ M8D Brush Chipper

Perfect for rental yards, landscapers, golf courses and pruning crews, the high-capacity Beever M8D Brush Chipper is easy to transport and operate. Plus, it’s the only chipper in its class to combine both a wide infeed chute opening and 1 1/4″ (3.17 cm) thick chipping disc for a greater chipping capacity than comparable models. The M8D has a 251-pound (114 kg) disc and shaft weight, which provides more inertia to power through material and continuously feed material.

With a single top feed wheel compression system and 32.3 ci hydraulic motor with spring-assisted down pressure, the M8D generates more than 2,300 lb./ft. (7,545 lb./m.) of material pulling force and approximately 1,000 lb./ft. (3,280 lb./m.) of combined down pressure to easily feed a variety of materials.

Like all Morbark equipment, the M8D is a long-lasting, durable machine backed by a world-class parts and service support team.

Belt Drive

Direct drive with belt power transfer eliminates clutch components and over center belt tensioning systems, reducing problem areas and easing maintenance burdens.

Infeed Chute

Infeed chute with 96-square-inch throat opening allows for easy material feeding and reduced trim labor and folds to reduce transport and storage length.

360° Swivel Discharge

360° swivel discharge with adjustable chip deflector puts chips right where they’re needed without removing the chipper from the tow vehicle.

Feed System

A top feed wheel compression system with spring-assisted down pressure easily breaks down a variety of materials.
