Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by acreageowner Easy to set up and works great for smaller jobs. Took far longer than expected to shred. Expected to have to feed larger branches (3/4 of an inch plus) through the side feeder port. This was easy and fast. However it was the smaller branches that I thought could be pushed down the funnel that also had to be passes through the side port. This was extremely time consuming. Otherwise it worked great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I am very satisfied I would have given this a 5 star rating but for one of the blades already being broken when I received the machine. I contacted customer service in North Carolina and was promptly sent a new set of blades. The chipper does a great job. It started on the second pull on it's first start. Since then it has started on the first pull. Be aware the fuel valve must be turned on or it just plain won't start at all. Don't ask how I know! I've used it 8 or 10 hours and the blade is still reasonably sharp. Great machine. April 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Qualtiy product that is easy to use The Brush Master CH8 Chipper/Shredder is well built. For a non-commercial chipper it is surprisingly heavy duty. It is easy to use, and makes short work of tree limbs. The leaf funnel is great for smaller branches and yard debris. (Small limbs can also be bunched together and put through the limb chute). The machine is safe to use, with various features to ensure against accidental injury. The resulting chips make great mulch. The chipping process is actually fun! The only draw back is the noise, understandable with the powerful engine. Wearing hearing protection solves this issue. July 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Chipper I have about 20 hours on this chipper so far and it's worked very well, easy to start, nice small chips, and it auto feeds well. My only complaint is that it is unrealistic, under normal operating conditions, to redirect the chips into a container. This was a disappointment. The air flow coming out of the chute is very high (like a leaf blower) so it just blows the chips out of most buckets or barrels. This means the chips get blown over a large area, which isn't a big deal for me, but could present problems for others. Do some research to find out how others might use the chute more efficiently if you need that capability. June 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awsome machine After sitting in a shed for the winter, I pulled the old girl out, checked the oil, filled the gas tank, and with one slow steady pull, it started right off! I worked it steady for about three hours, chipping green and dried branches without any problems at all. My only regret is that I did not purchase this machine earlier (although the current price is WAY below what I paid for it last year). As I had written earlier, the combination hardhat with attached face screen and ear muffs are a must. I would also add that padded, anti-vibration gloves be worn as feeding some of the hard dried branches felt like a bad hit with a bat. The pile of chips from last year has composted nicely and this year's pile will be used as mulch. You can't go wrong with this machine! March 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gets the job done. The assembly was quite easy. Just follow the directions and take your time and there will be no frustration. Filled it with oil and gas..... and it fired up on the second pull. What I read in the other reviews is certainly true, the discharge is extremely powerful and if you want to collect the mulch in a container, you're going to need something extremely heavy and have the top partly covered or it will blow right back out. All in all, I'm very satisfied. It gets the job done and runs very well. April 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Somewhat satisfied Holes in the exhaust chutes did not match and I couldn't screw one of the four to save my life try as much as I could. The vent tube was broken and I am still waiting for a replacement. So far no answer from GXI Outdoor Power who shipped the Chipper. October 7, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defective machine, defective support I received my CH8 chipper/shredder and assembled it per the instructions. It assembled easily and appeared well made. I had read other reviews that it hard to start & it is harder than a lawnmower, but not too bad. It is also load! If buying one, buy ear protection as well. I was not happy with the way it tilts (away from you) when rolling it around. It is kind of awkward. On first start up it sounded like it was coming apart - banging and throwing sparks. A call to service assured me it was normal. After less than 5 minutes of run time and 2 small branches I had to shut it down it was so bad. Looking in the chute I discovered smashed and bent teeth, broken parts and dents in the casing. Phone calls, emails and pictures sent to the warranty dept have resulted in no reply other than they have no record of my initial call when they told me it was normal to make banging noises...
