Thursday Throwback: The GTS-1500 Gas Powered Wood Chipper


Gas Powered GTS-1500 Wood Chipper

With Winter approaching it’s end and Spring on the horizon do you suddenly feel a new headache coming on? No doubt the the fallen trees and bulky branches in your yard can prove to be a menace as the snow begins to quickly melt. Like most people you’ve probably wasted ample time on such yard cleanups and found clearing up this debris to be extremely strenuous and time-consuming.

Fortunately modern tech has provided you with a solution that works like magic and isn’t too hard on the wallet! Yes, of course we’re talking about wood chippers, the GTS-1500 Wood Chipper in particular!

Jansen GTS-1500 Gas Powered Wood Chipper

Having stood the test of time, this is one of the best mobile wood chippers in town, and it can process large wooden branches into smaller chips that you can clean up easily. Thanks to it’s portability, the GTS-1500’s automation, work system, and easy handling makes it so quick and coherent to operate that it seems like child’s play.

So, without further ado, let’s review this technological marvel from all aspects to help you decide if it’s ideal for you!


GTS-1500 Wood Chipper is a well-equipped machine having an adjustable trailer hitch and support leg, which make it perfectly eligible to use in professional applications instead of any tractor or heavy current-voltage equipment.

For example, the capacity of work of Jansen GTS-1500 and it’s successor the updated Victory Tractor MDWC-1500 Wood Chipper compete head-on with highly efficient heavy equipment because of it’s simple, yet effective design.

On top of that, the GTS-1500 is not just an ugly piece of equipment. It comes in vibrant colors that are pleasing to the eye. So, if you’re someone who prefers having equipment that is as classy as it is functional, the GTS-1500 is right up your alley!


The GTS-1500 Wood Chipper is equipped with a roller with which two movable blades are calibrated. Both of the blades are attached to one counter blade.

To make it simple there’s rapid and continuous movement of the blades (also referred to as knives) in the opposite direction to that of the attached counter blade. This mechanism allows the chipper to shred giant logs of wood into tiny pieces (also called chips).

The time duration of the operation depends entirely upon the diameter and the length of the wooden log.

For reference, this machine can chip a 200 lbs wooden log having a diameter of 4-inches in the short duration of just 24 hours!

High-Quality Knives Are What Make This Piece a Fan-Favorite!

When something needs to perform heavy-duty work, absolute quality is a must! Because hey, if you get a low-quality chipper in order to save some bucks, you’ll end up losing all as the knives will start to give away in a jiffy!

This is why models such as the Jansen GTS-1500 and Victory Tractor MDWC-1500 work so well. They both offer 2 + 1 state-of-the-art knives that will last for several years!

They work perfectly under high stress, even when they reach the max speed of 2400 RPM!

Pros and Cons


●      Easy Handling

It comes with portable handling property that makes it unique. The interface is simple, which makes the operation really straightforward!

●      Complex Parts of Machine

The complex parts of the machine include two moveable knives and one counter knife, input and discharge funnels, and unique tires of the machine. All parts are easily accessible in the open marketplace!

●     Maximum Employed Size Ranges of Wood

The GTS-1500 can chip pieces within the diameter of 4-inches and the maximum length of around 12 lbs, in just a short duration of about 60 mins.

●      Budget-Friendly

It is financially feasible! Moreover, its parts are also readily available in an open marketplace so that you can buy them without burdening your pocket.


●      Less Fuel-Efficient

Although it does not require any high voltage source for starting, its fuel consumption rate is not up to the ideal mark, and thus, its fuel average fuel consumption is slightly greater than that of ordinary wood chippers.

●      Not Advised for Bulky Wood Chunks

The machine is not efficient for the wooden logs whose dimensions exceed the convention as described above.

The Bottom Line

Getting a wood chipper is by far the handiest and easiest way to clean the menacing autumn mess. And if the wood chipper is portable, like the GTS-1500 E, things become even more accessible!

The high-quality build, heavy-duty parts, unparalleled efficiency, and straightforward handling make the GTS-1500 Wood Chipper a winner!

So, if it checks all your boxes, it’s wise to get it right now!

The EMID-70 embankment mower arrived in a metal cage on a wood pallet. The mower and accessories arrived in good... condition.The assembly was easy and straightforward. After assembly, all bolts and connections were verified tight and the gearbox was filled with 80W90 oil and all fittings greased. Hooking up to the tractor was made easy using the two parking stands that come with the unit. Once attached to the three point hitch the hydraulic hoses were connected using the hoses and fittings supplied. Once the hydraulic system was filled and the air bleed out it was time to work. The mower was ran for about 10 hours in all positions from 90 degrees up to 30 degrees down with no problems. After mowing the field the mower was used to trim the limbs that were encroching on the field.Suggestions for the shipping cage are add a middle bar between the upper and lower part of the cage and use locking bolts on the assembly as a few were loose or missing. The mower and accessories had shifted and fallen out and came on a wood pallet added bt the freight more

I bought an EMSD-56 Embankment Flail Mower Standard Duty. I pre-ordered it in February. This had to be one of the most... difficult years ever as China still had a zero covid policy. As soon as the mower was set to ship the port of Shanghai closed for over 2 months so delivery could not be made as agreed. I was offered a refund or an additional discount at that time. I opted for the additional discount. It took a while but finally the mower made it's way to me and it works fine. What I can say is that the team at this business is totally fair and extremely trustworthy. I would use them again for another more

Purchase of Flail mower was simple, arrived in good condition and assembly was straight forward. The only issue was it... was set up for Cat 2 rather than Cat 1 but that was handled quickly with a new set of pins which were mailed to me and arrived within 3 days. Mower has been used only once to mow about 2 acres and worked wellread more

I purchased the BX42S wood chipper. Shipping was quick and well crated. I've used it now for over 15hrs and it works... perfectly! I cleared woods for a motorcycle track and now I use this to clean up and help loosen up the soil with the mulch it creates. Well worth it!read more

I just recently purchased the MDWC1500 wood chipper from Victory Tractor for cleaning up around the overgrown fields of... our farm, arrived on time, setup was easy, very well built and rugged chipper! It has no problem chipping 3inch diameter brush. What a great investment for cleaning up around the farm! It did come with a damaged drive belt but a phone call to my local auto parts store and they had the belt in stock. For the price I highly recommend this machine to any small farm/homeownerread more
