This is great machine. very well package for shipping the Freight guy delivered it to the end of the driveway it came fully assembled after about an hour of reading the manual I added the oil, fuel and fired it up it started at the first try. I used it for about 30 minutes and the results are great no problem when my wife came home I fired it up to show her and it start it up once again in the first try. I have a big job this weekend and I'm glad I bought this unit. P.S. I love the tow bar great to tow around my property with my riding tractor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JimTBay This unit does not work well
With a large treed yard, I thought this chipper would quickly convert branches and other yard debris into mulch and chips. Quickly is not part of this units vocabulary!
Small branches are meant to go into the hopper section. However there is a short radius bend just before the blades. Branches will not easily go around the sharp bend therefore not making contact with the blades. Very frustrating!
Larger pieces, up to 3" diameter are meant to be inserted into the other side of the unit. You have to push the sticks very hard to make any progress with chipping. I was told that the unit would virtually suck the wood in so I would need to hold it back to prevent the motor from stalling due to overload. You actually need to push very hard.
Just not worth the money!

I'm impressed. I upgraded from a 6.5 HP C-S, and this one's a bear. The manual cautions to hold with both hands when feeding the chipper. Be sure you do for largest branches: feeds so aggressively that it will jam itself; smaller stock not a problem. Feed the big end first so you can let go when you have to. Makes nice shredded mulch, too. Starting effort = to 6.5 HP B&S. Have seen comments about hard to start when warm. Mine took 4 pulls to start warm, always starts on 2nd when cold. (I'm 68, 5-11, 172. I have 3 machines with 6-7 HP B&S engines.)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by awlb Not bad for the money
Started and ran strong out of the box. No problem chipping branches and ate through leaves --- however, while trying to chip pricker vines, it clogged the unit. We weren't overloading it, but the opening at the bottom of the chute is prone to clogging esp. if you are feeding it a mixed batch of leaves and vines or twigs than can bend, catching other debris being fed into the hopper. Would prefer a larger opening at the bottom of the hopper so gravity can do its part to move debris along. 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. It's small and portable, which is a plus. Good deal for the money, just remember it's not a commercial chipper and treat it as such.
