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.

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

Will this machine shred stacks of office papers & records?

We have many boxes of old office records we would like to chip/shred in our basement.
Asked by: Larry
No, I cannot imagine this lightweight machine doing a satisfactory job. It is designed for chipping small sticks and branches, which I find that it does fairly well, but it has no way to even feed boxes of documents.

1.5 in. 14 Amp Electric Wood Chipper/Shredder is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 322.
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 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.

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 2 out of 5 by from Just Ok. Not really sure why this product exists. I thought I may be able to use a medium chipper in general, but quite frankly, anything that can go in this chipper is small enough for a compost pile. And anything too large for a compost pile can't go in this chipper. Not really a niche fit. Also, I can already tell this thing is not gonna last more than two seasons. I recommend just purchasing a larger chipper even if you have to save for it.

Used for about 2 hours to clean up a pile of yard waste with no problems. On a few occasions a jam occurred. Clearing is very simple - turn off and UNPLUG, unscrew the cover and lift up. You can spin blades by hand until you find and clear the jam. Wear goggles - on rare occasions a chip will fly up. Exactly what I was looking for. A real value.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from can still be more work than you think Not as easy to assemble as advertised by Sun Joe, as it took a lot of "persuading" to get the support legs inserted into the chipper body deep enough to line up the screw holes. We had a lot of thick vines to be cut up, and some vines when getting chewed up, get caught in the cutting wheel, slowing the machine, and eventually I have to open it up and dislodge the "strings". You have to pre-trim many of the limbs, removing many of their branches/shoots, or they won't go into the chute. This makes for extra work and handling, before you can actually get the limb into the chipper. Had several limbs,within the diameter advertised, jam the machine. It takes several minutes to open the chassis up to remove each jam. Bottom line, if you are not careful about what you are chipping up, you can spend more time clearing the chipper than actually chipping the wood. If you are careful with that, then this can be a good value.
