Customer Questions & Answers

Has anyone had difficulty restarting the chipper immediately after having run it for a good while? Seems hard to start when the engine is warm.

is the towbar available for this model?

Asked by: leeroy
The one I ordered came with a tow bar, although I have not used it yet. For short moves the handle bars work good. For moving it further the tow bar is probably a good idea. A lawn tractor should do the job just fine. The unit also included goggles. I think they all come with these accessories.

3 in. 250 cc 2-in-1 Upright Gas Chipper Shredder is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product and Delivery. This really seems to be a great chipper/ shredder. It is made of heavy grade sheet steel and looks very solid. It does what the manufacturer says it does, which is to chip wood up to three inches in diameter. This is the bulk of what we have at our place. Anything bigger we just stack. After cutting branches to chip you do need to cut off heavier branches near the stem, before feeding them into the machine. Then those can be chipped individually. This is where a chain saw is handy. It starts easily, even when it is warm. I have had no starting problems. I use the choke, put it on fast, pull the rope once, and it starts. All that said, this is not a toy. While I have seen some other chipper/shredders for a little less money they look rather small next to it. I think the Cub Cadet is probably needed, if you have more work to do. Here are a few things to watch out for. You have to fill the engine with oil they provide. It does not have oil in it when it arrives, so be sure to put the provided oil in the engine before starting it. The engine, also, has a gear reduction box. I was somewhat confused about whether this, also, needed oil. Apparently it is a sealed gear box with oil already in it. The instruction manual covers a number of engines and one model gear box needs to have oil added before use. This one does not, hence my confusion. As with anything new it pays to study the instructions thoroughly before doing something you might be sorry for later. For me, the engine manual was not always clear. Also, be sure to follow all safety rules, the same as any machine. Although you can walk it to location with the provided handle bar. the machine comes with a tow bar for towing behind a lawn tractor. It also comes with goggles, which you need. You will need to buy ear protection and gloves. This is a loud branch eater. It came on a trailer truck with a tail gate on the back of it. This is good, since it is a heavy machine. The driver unloaded it and even brought it up by our garage, which is not that close to the road at our place. I thought they would leave it at the curb. As a plus, it only cost about fifty five dollars for delivery. The packaging was heavy cardboard on a pallet. I totally recommend it. We can now use these downed branches as wood chips in our garden and flower beds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yard chipper Purchased the CS3310 model. Went right to work with it. It performs as designed. Not a industrial chipper, this is a home owner type chipper. We dropped several trees and used a rental chipper and this chipper for smaller limbs. It did a fine job. I read reviews and I have not had the same negative experiences. My purchase was left over stock. Not started in at least a year +. Couple pulls we were ready to chip away. Starts fine for me. I recommend this for home owner use. Caution with outdoor storage. Rain Water collects in chopper chamber and can freeze. This will lock up the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looked at many chippers with-in the same size as the 3310 and I decided to go with the Cub Cadet. I did see that some people had said they had trouble starting, but I have yet to have that issue. Starts every time with one pull and chews up everything I put in it up to about 3 or 4 inches. You do have to feed slowly so not to stall the motor out. For what it is intended for I would say it's great, I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good machine needs some fine tuning The tow bar is a must if you live on hilly terrain. The oil check/fill port is very cumbersome, does Briggs know how their engine is utilized in this application? The bag to catch the shredded leaves needs some improvement: the bag material is very slippery and hard to hold onto, handles would be nice; the capacity needs to be increased; a zipper along the seam would make emptying much easier; due to the size opening of the bag a good seal is not possible without added mechanical devices (I used a hand clamp to help seal the area). An electric start needs to be offered, my wife cannot start and I bought it for her use, so now it is my machine to use. It does a nice job of shredding leaves but the limited capacity of the bag means shutting down to empty and then restarting.

The chipper starts very easy and runs really well. Unfortunately it clogs with the smallest of branches. I know it says it shreds limbs up to 3" in diameter and it will if they're extremely straight and free of any smaller branches that will make feeding it into the chipper just about impossible. For the time invested in re-cutting almost every branch and force feeding the chipper it would have made much more sense financially and from a time management point of view to just haul the branches away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from dependable product The chipper is easy for me to start even with a bad back. For all of the reviews that say it is hard to start after shutting it down...just choke it each and every time you start it and you will find that it starts the first pull every time. I did a lot of research on chippers before my purchase. I am glad that I did not purchase a chipper rated for two inch branches as it would have probably only chipped 1 this one will not handle the 3 inch branches of any sort of hardwood and has trouble even with soft woods such as pine or poplar when the branches are 3 inches. It is very useful for 2" and below...just chewing them up instantly with little effort to feed the branches into the shoot. The shredder works great for leaves and tiny tiny branches. As usual with most products, you might as well just throw the instructions away before reading them. Overall I am quite pleased with the product so far as I have just learned to cut the 3" branches up with my saw for kindling...and believe that my opinion will remain the same as the machine seems to be quite dependable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chipper shredder review Well built, but very dissatisfied. Constantly jams and will not self feed. I have owned several Cub Cadet products and have always been pleased, but this was a waste of $700 dollars. The design of the chutes are the flaw, plenty of power but too curved and narrow at the bottom. I spend more time clearing out the jams than actual work. I threw hard earned money away on this purchase.

It continues to operate better than expected. Handles 3" bamboo with ease. This chipper saved me much time and effort. I would recommend it highly.
