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.

What is the size of the chipped material?

I need to reduce the size of the wood shavings used in the chicken coop for faster mulching. What is the size of the material when ejected? Thanks
Asked by: ChickenMan
Never more than 1 inch

Customer Reviews

1.5 in. 14 Amp Electric Wood Chipper/Shredder is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 344.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the trick! I have to say, I don't write reviews too often, but when I do it's either a product that does what it's rated to do, or it's not worth it/junk. This shredder does what it's rated to do; mulch up to 2" thick branches dry or green, although most of the time I try to stick with smaller than 2" branches. The directions say shred fresh with dry pieces in between. Mulch consists of small chips. Small branches, spent raspberry brambles, etc., no problem. Have only used it twice for about an hour straight each time. Not nearly as noisy as the big gas powered ones. So, we'll see how long it lasts, but hey, for the price, so far, it was worth buying it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chipper is good for small branches. Don't try to exceed the mfg recommendation it will just jam. ... Chipper is good for small branches. Don't try to exceed the mfg recommendation it will just jam. Goes through the small stuff quickly makes nice small mulch. Does not have the power of a larger gas chipper but its not a larger gas chipper. Works surprisingly well. Nicely priced. Does what I wanted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performed well Ran hundreds of small branches through it and it worked well. Had to open it a few times to clean it out but it was not a big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected! I have a brush pile that's been growing over the last few years and figured it was time to get rid of it. Saw this on the Home Depot app and ordered it. It came in, I picked it up and after getting home I assembled it in no time. When it came time to use it I was surprised at the motor, I was almost expecting a loud and screaming motor, nope, this thing sounds serious! I started with some small branches to see what happens and it ate them up in a hurry. So, like any man, I had to see just what it could take, without going oversize, that is. I shoved pine cones in there as well as branches that branched off to smaller twigs, and as long as it went in the hole, it came out chipped. For the price I'm more than satisfied with what I got.

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 3 out of 5 by from It's ok It is slow going. I used it on dry branches cut a few weeks ago. If the branch is an inch diameter or bigger you have to hold it back from being fed too fast or the unit jams. Unjamming takes two minutes, so if this happens too often it can really interrupt your flow and slow things down. I believe if it is rated for 1.5 inches 1 inch limbs should be no problem and just be fed with gravity. I guess I'm wrong? This unit is good if you need to break things down to mulch for a low price using too much time in my opinion. This unit makes me wish I had a bigger yard with more debrie so I could have justified buying a more powerful, faster chipper.

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.
