What is the difference between a wood chipper and a wood shredder?

The primary difference between both the wood chipper and wood shredder products is the manner in which they break down natural material. A wood chipper is typically designed for the user to input larger branches or complete pieces of wood and then break them down into chips.

A wood shredder machine, on the other hand, will use a blunt edge to pull apart material, many times leaving it in a state that is ready for compost. While many individuals use these terms interchangeably, the shredder is most often used to break down small materials such as leaves and other forms of smaller debris.
