Customer Questions & Answers

why is it so hard to pull start the brigs & stratton engin on chipper

the chipper is almost impssible to pull start i am 72 and i am thinking of returning chipper
Asked by: mugsy
I have had two of these in the past, and was just "gifted" a broken one (which I will repair and use.) The deal with starting the engine is amazingly simple: do NOT jerk on the cord! Pull it with steady force, the flywheel will gradually gain enough speed, and the engine will start. Once I learned this it was no big deal; one or two pulls, every time. A rapid pull is a wasted pull (and a torn rotator cuff!) as it's impossible to accelerate that flywheel instantaneously. So don't try!

Does this really handle 3" branches? How does it handle wet leaves?

Asked by: PapaSmurf
Note that your 3" branch should be reasonably straight, with no stubby side branches, or it will not feed properly. Fixing jams is a pain! This is nothing like a commercial machine! The leaf shredder works fine, if you keep the sticks to 1/2" or less. If you have a lot of large material to shed, rent a commercial machine.

3 in. 250 cc OHV Tip-Down 3-in-1 Gas Chipper Shredder is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Purchase Bought one of the 20 years ago worked great. I wore it out. Bought new one, different engine but almost exactly the same. Solid construction. Hope it last as long as last one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from JUNK The only way to check or add oil is to partially dismantle the machine unless you purchase the extended dipstick that they show in the pictures but do not tell you how to get. When the machine became clogged on a one inch piece of wood, I discovered one of the blades was damaged before it was even used. Someone assembled this tool with a broken and damaged blade. This product is junk!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bought a used one, it's ok This chipper does great on fresh cut 'green' limbs -- even up to 3" no problem, but if the branches are dry (cut previously and left to sit) then it has a very difficult time with them, even small ones. Also, limbs/branches need to be trimmed in a way that they are very straight as any little sideways bits can get stuck in the hopper and that is a huge pain to disassemble the hopper sleeve to remove a jammed branch. For the $300 I paid for it used, I think it's a fair price, but I think the full retail is far too much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did a good job. Will mulch leafs and small branches. Larger branches over 1.5 inches takes more effort to chip and you will feel vibration in your hands. Make sure you wear safety gear as outlined in guide. Fold down leaf chute is a plus. Engine starts up with no problems. If using the mulch bag, check the weight half way filled cause it can get heavy and cumbersome to unload.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad Item was hard to start right out of box. Ran 1 tank of gas and after refueling, engine ran for 2 minutes and then acted like it ran out of gas. Could not get it restarted after that. Returned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good chipper/shredder with some exceptions The product does work as advertised but it takes a bit of work to learn to use the shredder effectively without it jamming. Good: * the shredded output is very small and ideal for using as a ground cover * the leaf shredder is fast and efficient * the setup manual is clear and easy to follow * seems to be fairly fuel efficient (used less than half the tank after a full day of work) Challenges: * Do not feed any sticks larger than, say 1/2" into the leaf shredder, otherwise it will jam. * Jams are NOT easy to fix. Some disassembly seems to be required for every jam (keep your tools handy). * The unit is loud, and I'm not referring to just the engine: when it goes into shred or stick grinding, it makes a LOT of noise. Ear (and eye and arm and hand) protection strongly recommended. * It is not easy to start (my wife cannot pull hard enough). The motor seems to really want to start but because of the weight of the cutting wheel, it takes a LOT of pull to get it turning fast enough for the engine to ramp up to speed. It seems to work better on our unit to always use the choke, and then as soon as the engine fires, remove the choke. * We have found that we need to separate our shred into piles: small stuff (leaves, small twigs) that can go into the shredder and larger twigs and sticks that will go into other side. Issues with the unit I received: * one of the wheel push nuts (that holds the wheel on the axle) was missing or fell off shortly after we started using the unit * the nut for one of the shredders inside the chamber came off (or was never there?) causing the bar that holds the shredder to impact other metal surfaces creating a lot of noise. Thankfully I was able to disassemble the unit and find the problem before it did any serious damage (to the unit or the human standing next to it).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Chipper Shredder for Home Gardener If you make your own compost this is the chipper shredder for you. The key is knowing how to use this machine. The information available is very much lacking and creates frustration if the purpose you need this for is different than its design. What I do is gather up all the leaves and brush and place the material nearby. Next I get out a high quality hand clipper. If you can cut it with the hand clipper it should go into the large chute where it is shredded. Basically I keep a large poking branch handy. Take for example when shredding some tree trimmings where I use my hand shears to cut off small branches. If anything gets hung up or with gravity and it is not moving through the wide shredder, I use the spare branch and move the brush in a circular direction at the base of inside the chute which should then suck the brush into the shredder. Anything larger than the hand shears that I cannot cut gets put into a pile for chipping in the chipping chute or used for starting fires. Anything bigger than 2 inch I use for fires. On the chipper side I also keep a straight branch to press or move hung up branches. In all cases, I try and use my hand cutter to keep the shredded material and the larger shears the material to be chipped straight by trimming off side branches that can hang up the material. I find this machine ideal for small yard gardeners since any shredder less costly than this just does not have the power and any machine more powerful than this is way more expensive. If you have a larger property with lots of bigger branches to chip you really need to rent one of those large trailered chippers used by professionals(cost like 10 to15K) to process a lot of material in any reasonable time. The material I get from this machine depending on what you process is ideal for creating mulch to put under trees or for putting in your compost bins. I use the material along with kitchen garbage/coffee grinds and horse manure with straw and wood chips to create a great compost for growing fruits and vegetables. This unit also is at a size that two men can lift into a pickup truck bed to use on another property without a trailer. This unit for the purpose I use it for is actually more practical than ones that cost twice as much as this unit. What I don't process is any really wet material or long gangly material like banana, palms or thick vine material. Unless it is real short and dry It will just get all wound up in the blades before it is shredded or chipped. If you need to process lots of material like this again I would just rent a large commerical chipper. I just send this stuff personally along with weeds to the land fill through my yard recycling bins.
