Do you have to hold on to the branches and limbs or do they automatically feed into the machine?
Asked by: Marshmellow
Large stuff yes but you should hold the material to be feed, the chipper can get ahead of its self cutting and you sometime need to help. That part of paying attention to the job at hand

There is no obvious way to tow it unless you put something together on your own. However, it is not very heavy and is very easy to wheel around.

3 in. Dia 270cc Feed, Unique and Versatile 3-in-1 Discharge, Chromium Chipper Shredder is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I purchased this chipper with the intent of clearing a small brush line on the back side of my ... I purchased this chipper with the intent of clearing a small brush line on the back side of my yard and then use it for spring and fall clean up. I have about 30 hours of use current on my chipper. I gave this 4 stars for the totality of both pros and cons. This might be being a little generous. My experience with chippers started around the mid 90s with a Troy-Bilt Super Tomahawk. Pros. - It performs well. I was chipping some green and dry branches that were almost to the max 3" diameter without issues. - Easy to start, just note that if its warm outside and its sitting in the sun you might not need to use the choke or else you'll flood it after a few pulls. -Price, its a good value for a 3" chipper -The raised chip shoot is a pro but also a con. its never clogged and you don't need to keep clearing the pile in front of it. Cons. The engineer who designed this must be fresh out of school with zero experience. - The wheels are on the opposite side of the handle and it makes it hard to move around, especially on rough terrain. - It hard to pull the starter cable without it moving the entire machine. I had to brace it with my foot. -The packaging was weak and two plastic components of the leaf shoot came in cracked. - The velocity of the chips exiting out of the shoot is insane. This is good if you don't care where they go or bad if you want a controlled pile. In the product description "this innovative chipper is designed with an adjustable deflector, which provides multiple angles that can discharge directly into a container or garbage can or a standard outdoor trash can, so there's no need for bagging." didn't work for me. I tried using a bin and most of the chips blew out of it. Do not aim the chips directly at your grass, it will make a bald spot on your lawn.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money Bought one of these in March 2017 and it's been one problem after another. First, after only about 2 hours of use the hardware on the discharge chute vibrated apart. Next, after about 4 more hours the chipper teeth and shredder teeth broke, which also led to the rotor assy bending and cracking. Had to replace the teeth and straighten and reweld the rotor. After 2 more hours the teeth broke again This time I found it worked OK to just leave them out. Also had problems with the rivets on the top of the limb chute shearing off- replaced them with bolts. Today the weld at the bottom of the limb chute gave out. I've operated this chipper less than 20 hours total and every time I use it something else breaks. I will give high marks for the DEK motor. It has a great amount of torque and starts on the first or second pull every time. The rest of this machine, however, is JUNK. Don't know if it was built by inexperienced help on a Friday or what; but it's been extremely frustrating to have something break every time I use it. Don't waste your money on this one!

I then bought a cheap machine from China which I think actually worked pretty well but then got this thing because it was an overstock. This machine is by far and away my favorite. It does self feed and does take branches to 3 inches. Works tirelessly and does a very nice job. Dr. Duck

When I ordered it, they gave an estimated time of delivery of Mon. June 5, but it did not arrive until Friday June 9. The chipper was relatively easy to assemble, which I did on June 9 and Sat. June 10. The rules say 15 minutes but it is probably more like 30 minutes. There are a couple of places where the instructions are not clear and where it is helpful to have a second person assist briefly. The machine started up right away on one pull, but just puttered along. It never fully engaged. I eventually put a small stick (about 1/2 inch) in and the engine stalled out. Started it again and had the same experience. Tried a third time with same result. Repeatedly could not get engine to engage fully and it kept sputtering. On morning of Sat. June 10, I called manufacturer customer service and they sent a questionnaire, which I sent back. They said they would get back to me on Mon. June 12. After hearing nothing more, I contacted them on Mon. June 19. They said they had been trying to set up an appointment for me to take it to a dealer to be serviced, and that the service would take a couple of weeks after I dropped it off. They said that they would get back to me later on Monday with an appointment time. It is now Tue. June 20 and they still have not responded. So it is coming up on a month since I ordered it and the product is still not working with no immediate resolution in sight. During this waiting period I have tried to use the product a few other times and have had the same result. The machine is easy to move and is small enough to fit through a regular doorway into my basement.

High quality chipper with a few caveats The model CH8 (3 in. capacity) was what I bought. I had it shipped to store, weighs about 150 pounds, got help with the store associate loading in the Jeep, so not too bad in terms of weight. The good: After assembly and oil and gas were filled up, engine fired up on first pull. Quite amazing actually. One user mentioned that this chipper uses a flywheel to help with the recoil pull start. It really helps. The cutter blades and hammers made fast work of the twigs and branches I fed it. It's loud, powerful, and hungry! Feed me more it says! The not so good: Minor assembly required, while at face value, is for the most part true. But man, Brush Master needs to work on the tolerances of the plastic parts mating with the metal parts. I understand that the parts must be designed so that they are packing and shipping friendly, but from the user-assembly viewpoint, it sucks. I spent nearly an hour and a half unbolting quite a few of the metal housing bolts in order to allow the hard plastic chips discharge chute assembly to have enough play to fit over the metal housing; and even still, I had to make minor bend adjustments to the metal housing. Brush Master, you need to redesign this aspect of assembly. I recommend you create a plastic interface coupling that is bolted in at the factory; and at the end-user assembly would just need to mate the exit chute to coupling where you know the mate is perfect. As is, trying to mate sheet metal housing to hard plastic chute is imperfect and is very frustrating. Secondly, assembly of the leaf funnel was annoying. I understand the design of the round 'peg' that goes in the round hole to guide assembly, but on assembly, the flexible nature of the funnel made it difficult to keep the shallow pegs in the holes; I recommend getting rid of the shallow round pegs and instead put in a few 1/2" or 3/4" metal or plastic stubs to guide assembly. Thirdly, there is not enough tolerance for the large wheel on the side of the fuel tank. The wheel was rubbing up against the carburetor (?) assembly. The wheel shaft assembly was welded a tad too high up the frame or the angle was a tad misaligned. I fixed this with a small mallet to bend down the wheel shaft a fraction of an inch. Problem solved. Minor annoyance. The wheel on the other side was perfectly fine, lotsa space. I recommend a) better quality control with the wheel shaft assembly welds or b) design the wheel shaft assembly to give more clearance on that side. I like the large wheels! Don't make the wheels smaller! Fourthly, moving this thing around is awkward. While I love the large wheels, the angle and center of gravity makes moving it around using the handle bar on the leaf shroud really weird. I think it's because of the leg assembly. Don't get me wrong, this thing is very stable in operation. To move it, you have to lift up on the handle bar so the legs clear the ground, and then push forward. Very awkward. I recommend incorporating a fold-up or swing-away leg assembly that allows the user to "LOWER and PULL" rather than "lift and push" the chipper. Makes moving it around the property so much less awkward. For myself, I am think of modding this so I can tow it behind an atv or yard tractor. With all this being said, I feel this is a high quality chipper. Components are of high quality and the engine starting on first pull is a great sign. I have used this chipper for the last two weekends now and it has not failed me. Be prepared, though, it is loud. I do appreciate that a pair of goggles were included for eye safety. Maybe some ear muffs? LOL. One last thing, and a few users have asked about discharge bags, etc. The chipper exhaust is quite powerful. I had one of those gorilla yard carts under the exhaust chute and I laughed out loud as the chips exited the chute and flew all over creation! I think I counted 20 chips staying in the cart, lol. My neighbors were looking at me weird as I was cackling at the exit chute. You would probably need a tall container with a mesh bag covering to keep the chips from flying out the container. It's that powerful. I recommend this chipper with the following caveats: a) set aside extra time for assembly, b) be aware that moving the chipper around is awkward.

This product came 2/17/17, in a damaged box, the 2nd unit I ordered.....the first was lost in shipment with UPS and after multiple calls to both Home Depot and UPS they finally agreed it had been lost and Home Depot placed another order for a unit which arrived a day after UPS tracking indicated it would arrive. NO damage to the unit that we have found other than some bent parts/pieces attached to the unit. Unit operates very well, started on the 2nd or 3rd 'pull' and 'gobbled up' leaves and branches AS PROMISED. I dealt with "Lashonda" (spelling??) in Home 'Depot Arizona customer service location who was absolutely great and led us thru the entire process painlessly. She gets 5 stars.
