For me everything greater than 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter is fire wood so I'm not trying to mulch everything.
The smallest 6.5hp 208cc DR should be fine.
DR makes good stuff, but not a big fan of the B&S engines. our chipper is the 18HP model (eats a up to 4x4s). well it was, the B&S motor wore out and it's now a 20HP Honda. nowhere near the hours on it as the kawa powered brush mower and that is still running strong.

that said for small occasional use you'll get plenty of use out of it.
