Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by G61R Great product &easy to use.
I was very pleased with my recent purchse of the 15 AMP electric chipper shredder. My reason for this puchase was due to Pierce County's burn band rules and regulation. As you will see in the following pictures, I had a hugh amount of cut branches and bushes to dispose of and this chipper did a fantastic job to reduce this to a small pile of mulch. The machine was easy to operate, with easy instructions to follow. The performace was beyond my expectations, cutting all branches and shredding all leaves in minimum time. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EFUDD66 Pretty good light duty yard shredder with a drawback
The unit is lightweight, compact and easy to maneuver. It is easy to use and safe if you exercise common sense. The safety is part of the design. If something clogs the shredder blade (a very rare event), unclogging is very easy. With the maximum diameter pieces, the shredder slices thinly so it looks like pepperoni and there is more load sound from the motor. But it always handles the recommended diameters. The exception is small twigs. They pass right through unshredded and block the exit chute, which is a disappointment. And the feeder opening is small which limits how much can be done at one time. There is a very handy pusher to use when feeding. The shredder handles dried leaves and small branches very nicely and produces a finely shredded product which is great for composting. You will need a pretty expensive extension cord.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by artys broke fast
The unit broke after the first 3 hours of operation. The wall of bowl-shaped chamber where the blade rotates, was smashed by a piece of wood. The piece made a hole in the wall about 1.5" in diameter. All wood pieces were of allowable size. The bowl-shaped chamber should have been made of metal. As is, it is made to break (not to serve). For comparison shopping, there is Patriot electric chipper shredder that has that chamber made of metal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jimthedoityourselfer great machine for Home Use
I wanted an Electrical shreader for leaves and to cut my crape mertile limbs and Rose bush limbs. I did not want another gas engine to deal with. This machine works very well for my purpose and needs would buy again. So far very satisfied also free shipping to my door great!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by vermontbear Wouldn't advise a purchase
Product does an OK job on branches that are over an inch in diameter but, does a lousy job on anything smaller and leaves, forget it, they come out the same way they go in. I'm not at all happy with it's performance.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mari This product is limited.
This chipper was easy enough to assemble, but it has several issues.
First, the entry slot awfully narrow & I need to very carefully insert the trimmings - this is not convenient when you're trying to do rose or butterfly bush clippings. You are constantly trimming the trimmings to fit, feeding very small amounts in, and using the push tool to get them to go down into the blades.
Second, you get inconsistent sized chips. Some are nicely chipped, but it does not chip/shred the finer twigs, it passes them on whole into the disposal bag, so you waste time digging the appox. 4-6" branches out of the bag & re-doing them repeatedly until they're done. I wish that the Sun Joe chipper had been available instead.
It is also nice to be sent this at the end of the month, 4/30, where I only have 1 day to submit my review to be eligible for this contest! Of course I open e-mail after work & it is too dark to go out to the shed & take a picture of the chipper/shredder.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cavewoman420 Easy to use
This mulcher is easy to use, very light for good moblity in my cluttered backyard. Pusher works well, but wish it was self feeding. Works best with dry wood, as tends to have difficulty with green wood.
