3 in. 11-HP 270cc Feed Commercial Duty Chipper Shredder is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 108.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The CH3 model is relatively similar to my 35 year old 5 hp Mighty Mac but much better. The 11 HP ... The CH3 model is relatively similar to my 35 year old 5 hp Mighty Mac but much better. The 11 HP engine is much stronger and it shows. The funnel is much improved to the relatively small square opening I had on the Mighty Mac. The performance of the Ch3 is more than adequate for the average homeowner. I would only get the 15 HP model if I were cutting down large trees. The only thing weird is: No where do I find the country of origin. I tried tracing down DEK , which is the manufacturer of the engine. It is a partnership of Japanese and Chinese companies. I tried tracing GXI Outdoor, LLC, the manufacturer of BushMaster, but origin of manufacturer is unknown but I suspect Chinese.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Components I purchased the CH3 model last August (2015) and used it 3 times without any problems. I used it for the 4th time on Tuesday and the chipper stopped working. At first, I thought the belt might be slipping so I removed the belt guard and found that the drive pulley (on the motor drive shaft) was broken. Needless to say, the unit is out of warranty by two months and the replacement part (clutch assembly) costs $115 plus $22 shipping. While the pulley on the chipper is rather hefty & substantial, the pulley on the drive shaft is much less substantial and the metal is much, much thinner. I can only hope the replacement clutch assembly holds up longer this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of machine for a low price The brush master is a well built machine for the price, well worth it saves a lot of time

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it is supposed to Does just what it is supposed too. Probably helped by buying a size bigger machine than I really needed and consequently not stressing it to the maximum every time I use it. Works better as a wood chipper than a green leave shredder, but manages to easily shred and chip the large stand of Scotch Broom that I need to clear. The bag works quite well and saves a lot of clearing up afterwards. Good to have a plan what to do with the chips once you've made them - the pile always seems bigger than you thought it would be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great workhorse! I received this a few weeks ago and wanted to use it at least a few times before posting a review. It arrived via special delivery by a very flexible and helpful driver, who helped me move it close to my house. Although fairly well packed, it is a very heavy piece of equipment. After unwrapping it, I noticed a few minor parts missing during transportation (nuts, bolts, etc.), which I replaced through my local hardware store. The machine comes with good instructions, and after filling with oil and gas, it started promptly. I have now used it 5 or 6 times and quite pleased at the rate that it reduced limbs to very useful mulch. Aside from the chip collection bag, which fell apart during the first use, I have not experienced any problems. Definitely recommend this product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best chipper The bag grommets are already coming out of the material after one use. Towing the unit is impossible because the stand/feet drag on the ground. There is no way to rotate the stand up out of the during towing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is AWESOME!!!!!! Very simple to assemble. Normally starts on the 1st pull on choke. The first time I used the chipper, I filled it with oil and non-ethanol fuel and ran it until it ran out of gas. It ate up loads of 3" sweet gum trees and Chinese privet like it was nothing. I had to continuously move the chipper or the unit would clog. I filled it once again and got right back to work. Freshly cut softwood chips great. That first day, I used it for 2 hours with no real issues. This week, my neighbors oak tree fell into my yard, and today I had to change the blade. Changing the blade took 30 minutes, but now that I know how to do it, I'm sure it will take less time. I have noticed that the rubber around the opening of the chipper chute has deteriorated and several pieces have fallen off. Since that happened, the chipper no longer self feeds. I have noticed that the rubber pieces grip the branches and keep them from "bouncing back". So when I put a long thin branch into the chute, it will continually bounce back until it's gone. When I put the tow bar onto my lawnmower, it drug the base along the ground. The only time it bogged down was when my M-N-Law tossed a 2" branch into the leaf chute (she's since been prohibited from being 50' of the unit while it's running). I'm giving it 5 stars all around because I've seen other chippers, and this unit is a fraction of what they cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from USED ABOUT 15 HOURS SO FAR, MOSTLY SHREDDING LEAVES Shipping pallet is very skimpy and had totally crashed, truck line had strapped what was left to a new pallet. 2 holes in shipping carton, probably from forks, but no damage to the unit. Unpacking and assembly took less than a half hour. Like every small gasoline engine I've ever used, there was a little learning curve on the starting. When cold, this one like one pull on choke, turn to run and it starts on the 2nd pull. When warm, no choke and it starts on the first pull. Chipper function works as expected, videos currently on YouTube are a very accurate depiction. Leaves in the hopper tend to "bridge" if I just fill the hopper, so have to be worked down with a stick. More efficient process is to just feed about smaller amounts at a time so the hopper never fills more than about 6", then it will shred about as fast as you can load about 1/3 cubic foot each time. If this machine works as well after 1,000 hours it's definitely a five star.
