Customer Questions & Answers

Can you use this to shred clothing?

The company i work for, we all wear uniforms, and when someone leaves we collect there uniform and then have to manually cut them up; can we run t-shirts and pants through this?
Asked by: Teri
No. The way the blade spins it would just tangle and bind up.

green or dry?

hey Sun Joe will it cut up green /fresh trimmed bushes or not? some say yes some say no. I want to chew up bush trimmings.
Asked by: mouseman
Performance depends on how hard the wood is, and how sharp the chipper's blades are. With sharp blades, soft wood branches, up to the thickness recommended, are chipped up with ease. Harder, dry limbs are also chipped ok - about the only issues I've run into, are when the blades are getting dull, it can bog down on previously easy chipped items - or thick knotted pieces of hardwood limbs (say where 2 branches merge into 1) - those can jam it up and require a tear down to remove the stuck piece(s). But for what it is, I've been very happy and have chipped a LOT of acacia with this. However, you asked about bush trimmings - this unit doesn't really shred leaves or small twigs - they will likely pass threw with just a moderate chopping.

Can this be used for green material from pruning and deadheading perennials?

I have a large garden and it generates a lot of organic material. I would like to be able to chip/mulch this material and use it as mulch around the plants. I don't have a lot of twigs or branches.
Asked by: Alys
It will chop any of the stiff stalks you have but the flimsy stuff it might have a problem with. I used it to chop green branches as small as 1/4" and it was fine, there was some long strands of branch in with the chips. I did send some dried corn stalks through and it chopped them up.

1.5 in. 14 Amp Electric Wood Chipper/Shredder is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 448.

Can handily dispatch with 1" hardwoods and could deal with much larger softer wood like pine. Only shoots chips straight down but it's lightweight. I set mine up inside a wheelbarrow so it dumped chips right in. Then I just lifted it out when the wheelbarrow was full.

The number one issue I thought based on the reviews was the diameter of the branches. DO NOT use the scale on the box, it is larger than 1.5 inches. Still I kept the branch size under an inch. The first two times everything worked great. The other night I used it and less than 10 branches later (all way under an inch) the motor started to smoke. Nothing was caught in the blades and oh yeah it never shut off by itself which the directions said it would. So I let it sit for 15 minutes or so and tried again, the same issue. Glad I kept the box, I plan to box it up and take it back........

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! First I have to say that that I was very skeptical about the performance and durability of this product, but after using I was pleasantly surprised. I had about 3 truck loads of various limbs that ranged up to 2" in diameter and some up to 16' in length and this bad boy took care of the pile with ease. I tried to cut all the butt ends down to the 1.5" diameter and most everything chipped right up and there were a few jamb ups in the process but really attribute that to user error. Great product, I highly recommend for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive way to deal with yard trimmings I got this shredder in the hopes it would help me dispose of the trimmings from my 100 ft long Knockout Rose hedge. In past years the trimmings filled a dozen large garbage bags and required cutting the large branches into smaller pieces to fit into the bags. To my delight the shredder not only reduced my refuse, it made mulch out of the trimmings that I used around the rose bushes! Number of trash bags? ZERO! As a bonus the shredder is also great for disposing of fallen limbs and I’m sure it will make short work of other trimming jobs around out property that used to require bagging and transport to the dump. As a side note I found that a 2 1/2 gallon bucket fits perfectly under the discharge, making it easy to catch dispose of the mulch and providing zero cleanup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This machine is like all the other Sun Joe products I have purchased. If you have trees this is a must have!!! It's light weight easy to move around. Tears up limbs in seconds. I just love these products run off electricity as they are so easy to start and you don't have to refuel with gas. I have one of those that I'm going to get rid of. I'm a 64 year old woman living on an acre so there is a lot to do. This is a great product especially for the price. Thank you Sun Joe for making my life easier.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Annoying to neighbors. If you hate your neighbors and want to disturb their peace and quiet this is the perfect thing to buy so that they have to listen to you use it for hours on end. My neighbor has one and runs it hours on the end. It sounds like a router trying to give birth to another router inside a sound amplifier.

Handled the small tree limbs and bush trimmings with ease. The only down side is that there isn't enough room under the chute for a 5 gal. bucket, had to find something else to put under there to catch the chips. The chips it produces are finer than what you would get out of a bag. Wear eye protection and stand back when putting limbs in, the tops tend to shake a lot when going down. This chipper does "pull" the limbs down when they get to a certain point so no need to push them in the whole time. I chipped 1"-1 1/4" limbs with no problems. Was missing the screws to hold the legs in, but I had some extras laying around.

There were a lot of good reviews on this thing, so I took a chance and tried it. It worked well the first day, used it for a 1/2 hour and seemed ok. The second day I used it, it ran for about 15 minutes and then just stopped. The motor had siezed up completely, using the reset button did nothing. I am so sick of Home Depot pawning off cheap junk like this. I will not purchase anything from Home Depot for a month just because of this. Home depot should be ashamed to sell cheap junk like this.
