Dosko has been producing wood chippers in the USA since 1983. I couldn’t find an official website under the name Dosko, it looks like Dosko sells its products under the GNE (Great Northern Equipment) company name.

While Dosko may also produce other lines of wood chippers, I only found one that clearly states that it’s made in the USA. That is its Dosko Brush Chipper 4 in. Honda GX390. By reading the product details, it clearly states that the product is made in the USA.

Land Pride is a company that offers a wide array of heavy-duty farming machinery. The company was established in 1986. It was founded in the Midwest, and it still operates in the Midwest today.

Land Pride has manufacturing facilities in Abilene, Kipp, and Lucas. These are all places in Kansas. I could find no evidence of the company manufacturing any of its wood chippers overseas. So, it looks like all of Land Pride’s wood chippers are made in the USA.

MacKissic was established in 1947. It began by manufacturing bale hooks and plough trip rope releases for farmers. By 1952, it began offering a wider variety of products, and by the early 70s, the company began producing wood chippers.

It is a proud American company. Across numerous pages on its website, you’ll see phrases like made in the USA and USA-made products. MacKissic is very proud to be an American manufacturer and although it may produce some of its products overseas, its wood chippers are manufactured in the USA.

Dr Chipper has been manufacturing outdoor power equipment since 1985. In 2003, Perkins Power Equipment became a dealer for the company and is now the oldest independent dealer of Dr Power Equipment (Dr Chipper). OMC Power Equipment is also a dealer for Dr Chipper.

The reason why I am mentioning its dealers is because that’s where I found the information regarding the company’s manufacturing location. According to both sources, Dr Chipper produces its wood chippers at a facility located in Vermont as you can see in the image below.
