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: 
I don't think so. My husband and I just stacked the things for shredding next to the machine; It is important to not overload it. We also sat the machine in one of those blue, hard plastic baby pools (ours was cut down about half) and it collected all the shredded pieces with no problem; We emptied it as it filled up and
kept going!

Answer: 
Hello okraeater,
We do not currently have an attachment to funnel the leaves into the chipper. For easier leaf management, we do offer our SJLS01 Leaf Scoops. These will allow you to funnel the leaves into the chipper a bit easier! Additionally, we offer an Electric Leaf Shredder; that is model SDJ616. It is not a combination Chipper/Shredder, but may be a worthwhile investment!
Hope this helps,
Snow Joe

Answer: 
Hello DIYer,
The CJ601E Wood Chipper/Shredder can handle bark quite well. With hardwoods, allow the chipper to work at the rate for which it was designed, without forcing material through the chute. The two heavy-duty steel blades and chipper head are more than capable of handling these woods and bark.
Hope this helps!

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 216 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice chipper Easy to set up, easy to use. Previous reviews were very helpful. April 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy machine! Works great! After reading many reviews about this and similar machines, I really wasn't expecting a lot. Boy, was I wrong! This thing made quick work of all the small branches that seem to fall from the Birch tree. It's powerful. Few words of advice. It does not care for fresh cut branches. I trimmed a hedge and ran the branches through, it will clog. It's not hard to remove clogs, it just takes time. The wing bolt has the closest threads I've ever seen, you'll spend a lot of time just turning it. Make sure that you plug it into a circuit that does not have a lot of other things going, it takes a bunch of power to operate, and by all means, USE A HEAVY DUTY extension cord!!! May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value I read a lot of reviews before purchasing this item and was willing to accept the potential flaws other's had listed. I have been nothing but pleased with this item. I didn't try feeding the chipper branches at the upper end of the diameter limit at first, but as I began adding more, I found it had little problems with those 1" to 1.5" diameter branches. My one negative is the rubber flaps at the entry point being cumbersome for branches with a lot of laterals, but this is more a species issue than a product issue. I would absolutely recommend this purchase, especially for the value. April 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by More than just a chip off the old block. The unit arrived in a timely manner in excellent condition and was easy to assemble. Beginning with small branches and twigs from a large old cottonwood cut down in the dead of winter, I found the unit was plenty powerful and easy to use, kind of 'auto-feeding' if the branches were clean and straight enough. In less than an hour of casually picking and stripping small branches and experimenting with some vines mixed in, I accumulated about 7 1/2 gallons of mulch with no jams. Despite the winter tree removal, in the warmer spring weather the branches were budding and sappy mulch that missed the bucket tended to stick to the soles of my shoes. Constant noise of the rotating blade assembly can be annoying but hearing protection can handle that. Biggest regrets for now are chipping too near my walkway and not ordering spare blades.
