Fallout: New VegasEdit
- It can occasionally show up for sale by Old Lady Gibson at the Gibson Scrap Yard.
- It can be for sale by Carter at the NCR Correctional Facility.
- Sometimes sold by Cliff Briscoe at the Dino Bite gift shop in Novac.
- Right as you walk in the front door of Brewer's beer bootlegging.
- Near the refrigerator missing its door in Gibson's shack.
- It can occasionally be sold by Blake at the Crimson Caravan Company.
- The wood chipper is the heaviest item in both Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, outweighing even a suit of power armor.
- It has a value of 25 and a weight of 50, making it highly cumbersome for its value.
- The wood chipper uses the same model as the Leaf blower, this can prove annoying as it's relatively easy to mistake the heavy and essentially useless wood chipper for the much lighter crafting component
