Starts easy and has lots of power, all of which however is overshadowed by the inability of this thing to take in any material. The description says "2-way self feeder", not only does it not self feed, you can hardly force feed this machine. By the time you take a pair of shears and size all the limbs to be small and straight enough to enter the intake chute you just as well have thrown them into the timber to decompose. The top leaf hopper will plug immediately with any amount of material inserted into it and is mostly impossible to deal with from then on as you can not stick anything in there to send it through. Considering it to be my biggest waste of money in the $1000-1500 category this year.

While this chipper does a great job, its longevity is horrible. We bought this product last spring and used it last summer and fall to clear branches from about 20 trees we had brought down. When we went to start the process of clearing again this year, my husband noticed a rattling in the machine. Of course the 1 year warranty has expired. We took it to a local repair shop only to be told the carburetor is leaking and it needs new bearings. They went on to tell us the engine parts are impossible to get so they can't fix it. We now have a $1200 paper weight; what a piece of garbage. Maybe Home Depot will take it back and exchange for a new one? I wish I would have bought the DR chipper instead, at least theirs comes with a 2 year warranty and they stand behind the product.

To make this work for my needs I removed the useless chute to feed leaves And blocked it off, unless you hand feed a few at a time it plugged up. It was impossible to load on my trailer and the stand on the back side was always catching on something so I removed it and added a second axle and two wheels, now it's a one handed easy operation to move it. Hammer shaft bearings have no seals, no grease fittings so some vines locked up the bearings. I pulled off the bearing and there all rusted up and full of trash. Cleaned them up and the balls fell out. I've been calling the number in the manual for a week to get new bearings for a week under warranty, no answer, email address in the manual does not work. Found a company "GTX" supplying parts for this and they want over $100 per bearing, for a better bearing that I can buy on Amazon for about $16.00 each.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The chipper is not as useful for larger diameter branches.... The chipper is not as useful for larger diameter branches. It clogs more often then expected. But it provides good mulch from leaves. However, my biggest complaint is with the company's warranty service. They don't answer calls, and when they eventually do, they do not follow up with requests for claims.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Used the item for less than an hour then it... Used the item for less than an hour then it stopped advancing the wood through. The blade would spin and just burn the end of the wood. We changed the blade but that did not fix the problem. The item was returned to a local store within the allowed time period. The return was quick and easy.

We did have an issue starting it once, but after repositioning it started right away. It chips branches as advertised. It does seem to struggle with some of the very hard woods.

I ordered the Brush Master through the Home Depot Web Site on July 22, 2017 and it was delivered to my house by Estes Trucking on August 1, 2017. Assembly of the Brush Master was simple and straight forward. It started easily on the first or second pull. The chipper function is excellent and will easily reduce a 3", or slightly larger, branch to chips in seconds. The engine performs smoothly and is quite powerful for the job and does not bog down under load. I have now used the Brush Master for approximately 10 hours of operation. My only disappointment (thus only 4 out of 5 stars) is that the shredder hopper only takes leaves. It would be much more functional if arm loads of small branches, one inch or less, could be placed in the large hopper. Running 3" bundles of small branches through the chipper chute is awkward and time consuming. Other than the disappointment of the need to feed small branches through the chipper chute only, the Brush Master actually exceeds my expectations with its ability to handle very large branches easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The chipper has taken care of the piles of limbs... The chipper has taken care of the piles of limbs removed from trees we had to cut down. The chipper devoured three and four inch limbs that were several feet long with no hesitation. It is so much easier to remove wood chips than limbs.
