Although it took several weeks for the chipper shredder to arrive at my local Home Depot, it arrived in an intact crate with no sign of damage. It was very easy to assemble, and it started on the first pull! Before I pulled the trigger on the purchase, i read all negative reviews which were just a few, and followed the advice of those that were some what disappointed. I did re-tightened all engine mount bolts and all the other nuts to the product. All welds seemed to be intact and done right. Chips and shreds the pinion and pondarosa pine on my property nicely! Do not hesitate to buy this if your considering it.

Engine slipping caused two belts to ware and had to be replaced. Gas tank developed a pin hole leak and had to be repaired. Today, the carburetor bowl fell off. The bolt holding it on failed. Have to order a complete replacement kit to get a replacement bolt. And, I cannot get 3 or 4 inch wooden branches chipped as advertised. I wish the thing would just stop working altogether. I'm tired of messing with it and would buy something new.

We purchased this product to shred the many, many trees we had to cut down in order to clear our farmland. Directions to put together are pretty straightforward, however, you will be required to add your own motor oil. This isn't a big deal except nowhere does it tell you this until you get this huge machine home, unpack everything, put it together only to realize you need to put in a quart of 10-W30 before you can start it. This required another 50 mile round trip for us. As well, the directions also tell you to disconnect the spark plugs at one point. But nowhere in the directions does it show where the spark plugs are. Also use your own tools, the ones they included didn't fit the nuts & bolts. We've now had the BrushMaster for two weeks. We've used it 3 times. We just finished the 2nd gallon of gas. It has stopped working. A metal part has broken off of the motor...we think it's the belt tension. Again, no idea if that's correct because it's not identified in the engine parts description. All I know is we've run it less than 8 hours, we have trees stacked and ready to shred but instead we're having to go through the warranty to try and find an authorized parts dealer. I will say when it ran, we really liked the way it shred the cedar tree limbs. Now I have no confidence in the machine since a major component of the shredder failed.

Lack of instructions on the whole system. System should not be referred to as an industrial model. Barely could handle 2inch diameter branches. I strongly do not recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a Workhorse! Great chipper that does everything it promises. Would have given it a 5 stars except for a horribly designed towing system and unbelievably poor start up instructions. The choke label is reversed and oil fill caps are in two locations. Starts on first or second pull, runs smooth, chips like a champ. Just don't overload the feed and watch the size of the branch. Overall. money well spent. Might swap out the tires to get more height to pull over bumps and depressions.

Just chews thru any branch with limbs that will fit thru opening. If limbs stick out too far you can just squeeze the limb tighter to the branch with your hand and it will pull it right thru. Chips wood into nice small size pieces. Takes a few pulls to start it but I just use short easy pulls on the cord for a few times and once it starts there is no stopping it. Heavy to push or pull around the woods / yard but this exactly what I would expect from a well built chipper with a big motor. Love it. It's a beast.
