I have had this machine for about a month, and I have restarted it numerous times with no difficulty. If I stop the machine I simply start it again by putting the choke on, and putting the speed on fast. Then I simply pull the rope, and it starts every time I have done it. This is basically the same way I start it when it is cold. I am not sure why some others are having difficulty, unless the manufacturer has made some adjustments. One thing to note is that you should probably make sure the cutter is free of branches before you stop the machine. I am not sure if this is part of the issue, or not. It is just something to watch out for. Read Less

Answer: 
i have found my machine impossible to restart after a shut down until I wait a while. Have not timed it so far. I run a tank of gas out and when it shuts down I am done for the day.
I worked out this routine due to the fact that I could not get it to start after shutting down.

When the engine is warm it is almost impossible to restart the engine unless you wait about a half hour therefore delaying your work time. This Briggs and Stratton engine is terrible and not strong enough for this chipper.

Apparently the answer from cub cadet came from someone who has not actually used one. It is true that the engine will not start after shutdown, even if only run for a short period of time.

Apparently the answer from cub cadet came from someone who has not actually used one. It is true that the engine will not start after shutdown, even if only run for a short period of time. My experience is that it needs to cool down for at least 20-30 minutes before it will re-start. It was my assumption that the engine was flooding on shut down when it coasted to a stop. I put an in-line fuel shut-off valve in the fuel line and closed the valve when i wanted to shut down. This was not a fix, as the unit was still hard to start after shut-down. Then i shut it down normally with the throttle and pulled the spark plug out. It was dry as a bone, so it's not flooding. I never even thought to choke the motor on a warm start as that goes against everything i have done in the past. Next time i run it i am going to try choking it like the other respondent suggested. I sure hope that works because this thing is a real pain in the arm to re-start. Read Less

Hello. If the engine is already warmed, it is not necassary to prime or choke the engine. The engine already has sufficient fuel to start. Thank you for your question.

Answer: 
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 3.9 out of 5 by 29.
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.

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 inch...as 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and Powerfull Chips 2" 20 foot long saplings without stalling. 3/4 throttle works fine for 1" to 1 1/2" so you don't have to run at "max" power very often. Only improvement would be larger tires to make rough ground transport more effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from what a beast this chipper has exceeded my expectations. bought this on 4-4-2015, used for 6 hours and was amazed at the work that was done.amazing. chewed up blackberry stalks.leaves,twigs,limbs,grass. a wonderful machine. only fault I found, was to force limbs into chipper hooper and engine stalled. choked it, pulled starter one time, open choke, one more pull and she started. no problem, can"t force limbs into hooper. take your time and enjoy your machine. very well built,with no plastic,like a lot of the others. love the air tires, and the towbar. happy chipping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Started and ran strong out of the box. After gas and oil were added, choke, first pull and the machine started right up! No problem chipping branches, the chipper worked fine and produced great product. As with other comments/reviews, the shredding shoot does tend to clog due to the way it is designed (curved at the bottom) … I had troubles getting small mesquite branches to slide down into the hammers for shredding, if Cub changed the design a little (taking the curve out of the bottom of the chute and instead just have a straight taper, it would probably work best). Also, the oil fill is wedged in between the engine and chipper chute, so I just added oil via the dipstick port. It does reduce waste to very small chips and, as advertised, a large pile of yard waste filled only about 1/2 of the collection bag. Appears to be well made, comes with tow bar (removable), pretty easy to move around.
