Answer: 
No. The wood chipper mulcher is designed to chip and mulch small wood branches and twigs (up to 1.5 inches). The cloth will bind the blades. Hmmm, looking at your complete question, how about a heavy duty paper shredder? If it can shred a tie, I bet it can shred a shirt or pair of pants at a time. The blades on a paper shredder is much different than a wood chipper mulcher. Now there is a thought. :-)

Answer: 
No I really don't think this can handle fabric. The blades are mounted on a disk and it basically works by chipping up solid material so that it can feed through a small opening. Cloth would only get jammed up, It's too soft and flimsy to feed into the unit. Have you thought of a big paper cutter?

Hi Teri!
Unfortunately, we do not suggest running clothing, textiles, or other apparel through the Sun Joe CJ601E Chipper. Instead of "chipping" the fabric, the long fibers will likely become frayed and unwoven, causing them to wrap around the cutting head and result in the unit becoming gummed up, possibly shorting out and overheating the unit to the point of damage.

Hi Teri!
Unfortunately, we do not suggest running clothing, textiles, or other apparel through the Sun Joe CJ601E Chipper. Instead of "chipping" the fabric, the long fibers will likely become frayed and unwoven, causing them to wrap around the cutting head and result in the unit becoming gummed up, possibly shorting out and overheating the unit to the point of damage. User safety would also be a valid concern.
This unit was designed to chip away at long branches or break smaller yard wastes down to a more manageable size.
Still, thank you for your interest in using our product in an off-label way! :) That is the spark of an innovator!
All the best,

Answer: 
The chips are fairly small. Certainly smaller than what I typically think of when thinking of wood chips. However, I am not sure that they will do well making smaller chips out of wood shavings. I think that the wood shavings may just pass by the blades either without being cut, or with only partial cut thru, unless those shavings are fairly thick wood.

Answer: 
Depends on the size of the piece you are chipping. The biggger limbs come out about the size of a quarter cut in half. The smaller limbs come out about the size similar to what one would get from a chain saw.

Hello ChickenMan,
The SBJ605E has a mulch reduction ratio of 16:1, which means material will come out, on average, 1/16th the size it was before being mulched.
Hope this helps!

Answer: 
I had good performance with green and dry, as long as they are straight...
The drier branches could cause the blade to get stuck if you let gravity feed the branch. I had no problems holding the branch and feeding it slightly slower than gravity.
Twisted branches are also slightly finicky because of the shoot design (to limit the max diameter of the branch).

1.5 in. 14 Amp Electric Wood Chipper/Shredder is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 321.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing little chipper This chipper surprised me, it really works. Easy to assemble. Really chews up branches up to about 1 inch. I would not use it for leaves alone, the feeder shoot is not designed for them but it sucks down branches with leaves up to the recommended size. Be sure to remove Y's from branches if they do not bend to the width of the whole shoot, this will keep them from entering the feeder, but if you can get them in normally they will be devoured. I jammed it up a couple of times when trying pieces that were over 1" but it unjammed easily. Have a lot more to do with it, giving it a good test. Will update if I have issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great residential chipper Chipper was really simple to assemble. Cannot beat it for the ease and portability. Tears through small your everyday small limbs up to 1" in diameter. Make sure the limbs are fairly straight. Knots & wyes will slow the process and or jam it. But still not a big deal, it is very simple to unclog, & the safety switch is a nice add also. I have chipped Red Tips, Holly, Pin Oak, & White Oak so far. My Oaks shed small limbs all the time, & I cut down 3 Red Tips that were probably 25 years old at least.. Now I to burn the base of the Red Tips, but this chipper done all the limbs. This purchase has already saved me 1 barrel burn already in less than a month. The 2 year full warranty is extremely nice considering most chippers only warrant for 90 days limited. If it breaks after 2 years I will buy another one if they still make them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very effective I purchased this shredder to help cleanup my yard of basic branches and it performs nicely. It easily handles straight, green and dry branches up to the stated 1.5" diameter. I gave a slightly lower rating for ease of use because twisted branches are not so easy to feed. Also, the angle of the wheel that does the work, tends to pull the thickest branches very fast, causing the blade to get stuck on dry branches. You just have to not allow gravity to feed the branch too fast. Other than that it is a good, quite chipper and made quick work of the piles of branches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The SunJoe chipper is a great and well priced chipper The SunJoe chipper is very good for chipping small branches. It was very easy to assemble and it is very easy to handle and move around the yard. It is light weight and I can put it in my small shed. It is easy to clean with a brush after using. It does not do as well with leaves. The holder clip for the pushing paddle fall off the chipper very easily; it is better to put it by the handle for storage. Be careful not to let the strap that holds the paddle get caught with the branches and it will get shredded. It makes fine small chips of the branches, you must feed then slowly into the chipper. It does not do so well with the very thin branches (less than 1/8 inch) like the ones with leaves from a mango or avocado tree. It just cuts them into shorter pieces. You should not feed wide branches (main branch with many smaller branches going in different directions); they get stock in the chute's side walls and then it does not feed down the chipper. I break or cut the side branches off before feeding the chipper. It does well with 1.00 and 1.50 branches, just feed then straight and slowly, preferably without side branches. I am very happy with my SunJoe chipper. I have trimmed a lot of branches from my avocado, mango, oak tree and evergreen bush. I have been spreading the chips and shredded leaves over the lawn and work the fine mulch into the lawn with the rake, for fertilizing the grass. I have 2 large garbage cans full of chips and shredded leaves for mulch and still have three very large piles of branches and leaves to chip/shred when it stops raining. I love my chipper/shredder. I wonder if I adding two more blades would make even finer chips and do a better job with leaves.

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 As advertised This one is a replacement for a Portland chipper that died after only 1 season of use. It's the same size, but seems more powerful. Larger sticks rarely get stuck and go through without much effort by me. However, on one occasion when a large stick got stuck, after it was removed, I had a hard time getting the unit to close completely. I don't know if the key-like part was bent or if the slot was blocked, because I never figured it out. But after checking it out several times, and simply jamming and shoving on it, I got it to close and the screw part to fit. Other than that it has worked well, so far. I've had it for about a month. And I've used it 3-4 times, for up to 4 hours straight.

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.
