The intention of a tow-behind chipper shredder is to be attached behind a lawn mower or a large tractor. Chipper shredders are subdivided into four classifications, there's the power take off type (or PTO), there's a self-powered shredder, vacuum shredders and wood chippers.
The PTO chippers are not able to work as standalone shredders, as they don’t have their own motor. However, this type is advisable for those mowing a larger garden or a commercialized farming ground. Vacuum shredders are towed behind the garden tractors. One of its distinguishing parts is a discharge adaptor vacuum. The shredded organic materials are transported into a large container or a storage bin by the vacuum. The wood chipper, as its name implies, is built specifically for the shredding or chipping of pieces of wood. Lastly, the self-powered tow-behind chipper shredders are heavyweight machines used for larger pieces of land. They have more specialized features and are able to grind the bigger organic waste materials.
