Answer: 
All you have to do is attach the handle, which is two bolts. Took me all of 2-3 minutes. Also have to add oil (which is included) and gasoline.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chips and Shreds well - kickstand design poor On the second use I had a long stick get stuck because of branches not completely cleared. I tried to wiggle it back out but because of leverage the kickstand bent. The machine then tilted more towards the ground. Being careful, I was able to use it 2 more times before it snapped off and broke another cover. August 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful chipper Very powerful chipper. Also very loud. So far, no problems starting it, and it will run for a good while on the tank of gas, which is small. A few complaints: one of the wheels came cracked, and now I have to contact the company and deal with that headache. The other is the badly designed oil/dipstick. It practically goes in horizontally, making it near impossible to get a reading of your oil level. The instructions say the level should reach the first threads of the screw-in dipstick, but since it's not vertical there is always oil on the engine's threads, which transfers to the threads on the dipstick when screwing it in. I fear running it low on oil while being fooled into thinking it's full. Also, some of the bolt heads already have surface rust, and I've had it less than a month. I assume that Earthquake knows that people will store this in their sheds, not inside their houses, so the rust is worrisome. I bought it for my 40+ Sweet Viburnum "shrubs", which if left unattended turn into 25 foot monstrosities, so I don't know if that is a relatively soft wood or not, and can't comment on how it does with other, harder tree branches. I also have not attached the bag, as advised in the instructions. Instead, I put down a large standard blue tarp and shoot the discharged mulch onto that, then tie the tarp to the back of my lawn tractor and drag it to where I want to use the mulch. Is $600 too expensive? Not compared to the competition, but more than I wanted to spend to deal with my Viburnum. April 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by first use Used this chipper for the first time today. The performance of this machine exceeded my expectations. The engine is very powerful and easily shredded branches, trunks and brush both green and dried. Very happy with the purchase and looking forward to using it all season. April 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised. Disappointment on arrival turned to satisfaction. When I opened the box I found the air cleaner shattered in the bottom of the box. Called HD and they said 1 1/2 weeks to get a replacement. Called the company and they sent one out right away. Didn't know HD actually ordered a replacement, since I told them I would contact the company myself. Both actually arrived the same day, 4 business days later. In the meantime, I glued the old one back together to try it out. Worked like a charm. I had just pruned my fruit trees and it handled everything, leaving me some nice chip mulch to spread around the trees. Used it a few days later to mulch up the prunings from a neighbor with just as satisfactory results. March 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Used this for the first time yesterday, bring on the branches, leaves and all things smaller than 3". This machine chews it all. Make sure the oil is checked every time you use it, if not the machine will be difficult to start. wear face protection as there will be chunks shot out of the top from time to time. The discharge chute really blows the shredded materials out so be very cautious where the chute is pointing. The shredded material is very useful. April 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good powerful chipper for home use. Went together easy, as noted by other reviewers the holes on the hamper needed to be enlarged slightly. Same comment on oil fill, get a long flexible funnel and you'll be all set. The chipper really rips through green branches up to 2 inches, pulls them right out of your hand. For anything larger hang on and feed it slower. I stalled it out the first time I let it eat a 3 inch branch on its own. It takes bundles of smaller branches no problem. It makes nice uniform chips for mulching, not sawdust or strips. Looks well made, heavy construction. Try not to let it run out of gas, it can be a bear to restart. April 24, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by limb master Works perfect very nice and it came with its own oil assembly was just two bolts and to nuts started up on the first pull cleared out over 2 years of the debris in my backyard in one day the backyard is one acre only bad part was the rubber intake shout for limbs it was to tight material wouldn't feed I just took it off no more problems April 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shredder Easy to set up. Easy to use. Easy to pull start. Easy to restart. Not sure about the problems others are having. May 12, 2015
