Questions & Answers

Does this work well for mulching leaves that you have raked up? The hopper looks narrow for dumping leaves in.

Asked by: Linigan
It works great for my needs, it chops small branches, and leaves with no problems. The hopper is fine a small bucket under it works good or a kitchen trash bag. I'm, glad that I purchased this product.

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.

1.5 in. 14 Amp Electric Wood Chipper/Shredder is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 646.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for our needs We had an overgrown orchard that required major trimming, yielding large piles of brush. We chose the Chipper Joe, which I called my "cheap chipper," over much more expensive rental options, and got full payback of our investment in days. The chipper took much of the brush and created a mulch that can be used around the base of the trees. Much of the time, I could move the chipper so that it deposited the mulch at or near where it was needed. The 1.5 inch limit on size is real, and it applies not only to single limbs but also to difficult branching structures, so I am left with unchipped limbs to be sawn up as kindling, and I needed to have a set of lopping shears available to prepare some of the branches before they were fed into the hopper. However, subject to the "go slow" cautions in the instructions, the reduction of the brush piles was dramatic. And, unlike with the rentals (which were going to require a trailer as well) I still have a mobile chipper in my barn for use next time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed This machine did not meet our needs or expectations at all. We read the reviews before purchase and had high hopes. I don't think we were asking too much of this machine! We had clippings, weeds, and small sticks to mulch. However, the opening is so small that we could only feed one stick at a time, it could not deal with curves/forks in the sticks, and it jammed when we tried anything over half an inch. Putting bundles of weeds in was impossible because of the rubber blocking the entrance. We were hoping to make a nice big mulch pile out of a pile of yard waste, but instead ended up with just smaller twigs and hay-like material--NOT decorative for our garden beds. The process was extremely tedious, and we stopped after about ten minutes and looked up the return policy. Returning it to Home Depot was a cinch with our shipping email that contained the barcode--great customer service at the store. We're now looking into renting an industrial strength machine for a half-day.

Which is unfortunately because for the first 15 minutes it will work great. Right around the 15-20 minute mark they start to go dull and it slowly starts to jam making it unusable. It will slowly start to jam bits of stick in the chute until it can no longer accept anything. The worst I got was about 10 minutes usage while i was chipping fresh sticks between 1/4 and 3/4 inch. The best I got was about 45 minutes of fresh twigs and vines/leaves. Changing or sharpening your blades isnt impossible but its way too much work for how often you have to do it. I spent more time changing and sharpening blades, or unjamming than i did using this thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Machine I just purchased a home with 2 overgrown fruitless Mulberry trees that were in desperate need of pruning. Once cut, the tree branches covered my entire yard to a height of 3 feet in some places. I bought the machine with the hopes that I could turn my trash into treasure by making chips to use for landscape mulch. I was dubious that this machine, at such a low price, was up to the task. I was going to return it if it was not. However, the job got finished, I never had to stop and clean out the insides as some people were saying they had to do (although was mindful not to overload it), and the chips I made have beautified my property. Despite the huge pile of branches I had to chip, the machine runs just as good as when I first got it so it's definitely a keeper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent wood chipper for average homeowner This is a great little wood chipper for small jobs. It can handle branches up to 1.5" in diameter, and it works great on those as long as they are relatively straight and do not have a lot of smaller twigs shooting off of them. That means it takes a good amount of prep work to get your branches ready for wood-chipping since you have to cut off all small twigs, and chop crooked branches into smaller, straighter pieces. The reason it gets clogged is that the opening on the top is pretty small, so you have to kind of fight to get bushy/twiggy pieces through. That is a bit frustrating, BUT I recognize that the smaller opening also means it's harder for me to accidentally chop my fingers off, so I appreciate that. All-in-all, I am happy with this purchase and am excited to be able to turn pruned branches into good mulch for the garden.

They're reversible, but one bolt's in so tight I couldn't remove with the supplied hex wrench and cut my knuckles trying. So you are paying 3$ an hour of use if you have to replace the blades so often.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Chipper This is a great little wood chipper. It won't chew up the big stuff - but you already know that. If you have a pile of relatively small brush to chip, it does a great job. Before I bought it, I was a bit worried that it would be a glorified toy. Its not. It does what it is meant to do and does it well. It seldom gets clogged and chips quickly and efficiently. It handles small and medium branches extremely well. Leaves seem to pass through without getting chopped up too much. Also, because there is a foot long chute that you need to feed the branches into, the material you put in needs to be pretty straight and free of major side branches. I found the best way to work was to prepare a big stack of wood first (cutting to manageable length and stripping of side branches), and then chip away. I used a cardboard box to catch the wood chips. This worked fine, but the box did;t quite fit under the machine and had to be at an angle. It would be nice if the machine came with a receptacle for the chips.

Product is of better quality than all others in this category. Used it after assembly it cut branches with ease. It also shredded pampus grass which was the main reason I purchased this. Works great very pleased.
