Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best chipper shredder We have had the Stanley CH5 15HP for a year and use it heavily to make compost for our 1/2 acre yard. We run it for hours at a time and have had little to no problems with it. It pulls large branches through easily, and makes short work of the small stuff that goes in the hopper. The blade is easy to remove and replace after sharpening. I think my husband loves it more than his car! We would definitely recommend it to anyone who needs a good shredder.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by a very good value The Chipper I actually have is the Brush Master that Home Depot has discontinued. However, the Stanley is the same chipper with more features such as electric start (and a really pretty paint job). I have had my chipper for almost two years and have used it a lot! I live on 5 acres of forest land, and I have not burned brush since I bought this chipper. I previously had a Troy Bilt 10 horse chipper shredder in a 3 inch. This machine is way more user friendly, powerful and easy to feed. I have sharpened the chipper knife a couple of times (with a disc sander). I have had to straighten some of the 'hammers' and dress their front edge with a grinder (all while on the machine) due to rocks getting in with the leaves and conifer needles. It is not unusual for me to run the machine for 8 hours at a time. I am still on the original drive belt, and it shows no sign of giving up. While the Stanley is a bit more money, having a major brand name behind the machine should be a plus. March 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by appears to be made of high quality materials The wood chipper arrived sooner than the estimated date in excellent condition. It was very easy to assemble since most of the machine had been done at the factory. The engine started immediately after I had added the oil and gasoline as instructed. It seems to work as I had expected. The only disappointment has been that the rubber guards at the mouth of the funnel where the limbs are fed into it are not tough enough and two of them have already broken away after only about 4 hours use.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chips Great - Pull / Recoil Starter Broken from Factory Upon delivery 9/6/2014 the unit checked out and seemed fine. I assembled it added oil and gas and made sure everything was tight and ready to go. Since it was a new engine and I knew it did not have a throttle setting I decided to leave the start switch off and give the unit a few light pulls to cycle it before just running it at max rpm. Upon the first light pull of the recoil starter it made a click / clack noise and did not engage the motor. Upon the second light pull the recoil starter simply spun around again without engaging the motor. The third time I pulled it very slowly trying to see what the problem was and the plastic spool that holds the rope fell off inside the cover and the steel spring popped out and uncoiled. WOW off to really bad start. I removed the cover to find that the main "shaft" bolt that holds the entire recoil starter assembly together was obviously over tightened resulting in it sheering off, which had to be obvious to the person assembling it, but it was installed anyway. At that point had I not already put gas and oil in it I would have loaded it up and taken it back to homedepot. BUT too late. I removed the cheap plastic and soft metal parts of the recoil starter and replaced the cover so I could start it with the electric starter and see if it would cut, which by now I was having serious doubts about quality. It took a bit of time to get it started. Once started I chipped a very small pile of branches and it seemed to do well, but that was only a few minutes of operation. SO now I must call / email GXI and request a completely new recoil starter and the metal external cover because the bolt that they sheered off goes into the back side of the cover which is all one piece. I expect much higher quality from a $1,400 piece of equipment and especially a recoil rope starter that has to crank a 420cc engine. Seeing the cheap, soft "gold" tone metal parts inside the unit really has me worried about the rest of the machine. I will rate this thing better if it performs well in the next few weeks and if GXI gets me a new starter ASAP......It's funny when I decided to buy this one I was worried that the electric starter was just a gimmick and would not work well on such a big motor, but it seems very powerful and cranks the motor quickly, maybe that's why GXI / Stanley decided they could use a cheaply made poorly assembled recoil starter unit?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent tool. I've had the unit about 2 months now and waited to review it until I had changed the blade as that appeared to be a challenge. I've been using the unit to chip through a large pile (4x8x60) of tree branches from twigs to 3 inches as well as pine needles and leaves. The unit has started easily every time. The only jams caused by accidently leaving a branch blocking the blade a couple of times. This is noticed on startup as the belt (by design) slips and starts to smoke. A little scary the first time, but it saves the motor. The leaf chute works for very loose stuff. It will clog up if you dump in a basket of leaves at one time. You must then use a stick to lift up the pile and let a few feed through. I didn't try using the collection bag. I found a garden cart is able to catch most of the mulch without a mess. The mulch produced is small and good for spreading in the garden or a compost pile. The blade seemed to noticeably dull after about 10 hours of use so I started leaving the larger branches aside until I could get around to changing the blade. Changing the blade the first time was somewhat daunting as you really need to remove the entire chute and grate arrangement to get at the nuts holding the blade in. Once removing that stuff and overcoming the factory tightening it was easy to replace the blade. Putting it all back together took some ingenuity and patience, but wasn't too hard. The unit is quite heavy, so moving it more than a few feet you need some kind of a tow vehicle. January 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A very nice chipper This is a rock solid, easy to use chipper. It is easy to assemble (write down the serial number first), and started by pull cord the first try. I especially like how it may be used while still attached to the lawn tractor. My only complaint is that it does not work well with the bag. The chips back up into the machine and bog it down. This happens even before the bag is full. July 9, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful and sturdy but has trouble with some wood The product runs well and is very easy to start, however it came with a defect in the chipping mechanism. When we first used the machine it would not chip branches in the side chute but instead would just grind the end. After taking it to a repair shop we learned that the blade was positioned incorrectly and Stanley had this fixed promptly. The blade still doesn't seem quite right because it pushes branches away instead of pulling them in which increases the amount of work and time required to go through a pile. Additionally, we often end up with a lot of wood pieces left over that are too short to maneuver around the blade. Stringy wood such as Quince are particularly difficult to chip while others such as Walnut go through with far less effort. It's hard to say if this is how the chipper works as designed or if the blade is still angled incorrectly. Even so, in eight hours of chipping we covered around 1,000 square feet several inches thick. We're happy that it handles bamboo canes well, bamboo is very fibrous and clogged some of our past chippers. We've chipped bamboo canes up to 3.5 inches in diameter and thirty feet long in as little as 60 seconds, whatever blade issue we might have doesn't seem to affect cutting bamboo. The chips blow lightly out of the shoot instead of blasting off in every direction which means we actually get to use the chips. We had a chipper that shot the chips out of a similar shoot to this machine's, but they would the ground and fly a good fifteen feet away which prevented us from gathering the chips for use elsewhere.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cheaper than competition but parts are expensive and hard to find CH5 is distributed by GXI and difficult to find replacement parts for. Already replaced the carb after only 1 year of light use, not more than 10 hours. Also needed a new belt which is not cheap and only available at Home Depot or GXI. Lots of vibration so watch for wing nuts and hardware to fall off during use. Works well if wood,is straight and no branches protruding that can cause jams. I never use the leaf chute due to the warnings and the type of branches I am chipping. Very awkward for 1 person to move, but works well when towing with my riding mower. When it's working it works well. Always use ear protection because it's very loud. Never used leaf bag. August 14, 2014
