The chipper did not last two hours before it broke. The cutter head became loose on its shaft and the blades came into contact with the metal guard. The chipper does not work well with twigs, leaves, any sort of thin, flexible branches, such as English lavender or star jasmine trimmings. It works with straight, rigid sticks. The manufacturer wanted me to register the product before they would proceed with a warranty claim, so I returned the defective chipper to Home Depot.

      Last year when I bought this I got about two hours of use out of it before a 1" diameter branch destroyed the metal plate (they call it the "splash guard") that directs the branches toward the spinning blade. The plate was broken in three pieces. I emailed photos to sunjoe, and my email was initially ignored because apparently their customer service email doesn't accept messages above a certain size, and the photos I sent (four of them) made my message too big. When I finally called to follow up, they arranged to send me a replacement part. OK, I thought I'd give it another try. So I replaced the part, fired up the machine, and this time got about 10 minutes of use out of it before a 3/4" branch stopped the machine with a "thunk" - looked inside, and yup, the same part is broken again, this time damaging the plastic casing as well. I don't know why they keep selling this machine, it is clearly not up to the task it is advertised for.

        This is a nifty, small Grama sort of chipper. Easy to assemble, lightweight and easy to move. It handles trimmings up to 1.5 inches and, as another owner said, anything bigger is firewood. LOL. It should be a great partner in my brush reduction campaign.

        After reading other reviews we were skeptical We have put the Sun Joe to use now 5 or 6 times and found the product is just what we need for our little back yard Garden The Sun Joe has saved us time with our compost – see back ground in picture When composting green material we found the material backs up in the shoot and needs to be opened and cleaned often – Sun Joe works for the City Gardeners – Thank You

        Would have gotten sooner!!
        I did NOT know that there was a wood chipper this small. The long & short of it is this; We bought a house in 2015. As a house warming present a relative came over & cut down several trees for us. We did not have ANY yard equipment. The problem is they cut them & left them on the property... Fast forward to 2019. The trees are still on the property. They are an eyesore, we are worried that some animal might make a home in it. We don't have a vehicle large enough to haul them away, we can't get schedules to jive to borrow one, renting equipment &/or a truck is costly. We were not encouraged. Then I stumbled onto a video of this chipper. I showed it to my wife. Our card got whiplash from how fast we used it to order our own. As the pictures show. This Chipper is AWESOME! That took less than a month only working about 8 hours a week. I got more progress in that time than all the years of putting out the allowed amount on the curb. WARNING: heed the AMP/ cord size advice in the box. I unknowingly killed mine by using the wrong sized/AMP power cord. I had to buy a second SunJoe.

          Excellent price for excellent product!
          Excellent price for excellent product! I had purchased the wood chipper online at the Home Depot canada website. The wood chipper came in a box it was a fair size and well packaged with full manual and instructions with specific tools to put the wood chipper stand and attach the wheels together in 10 to 20mins with out any issues at all. The whole wood chipper machine comes assembled already and ready to use except for the stand and wheels. When I started to work I made sure I wore a face cover or eye protecton and ear muffs it was a bit loud a specially working very close to the machine for that period of time was uncomfortable so I suggest wear ear muffs or safety ear protectors. Just follow your manual you should be fine and it will protect your self while working with no issues! I end up using the wood chipper on and off for 5 hours for one day this past week shutting it off for 10 to 20 mins in between to just make sure it didn’t over heat. It actually kept cool and never over heated I was very careful to follow the instructions and make sure that I didn’t over pack the wood chipper and cause issues. It did an excellent job making mulch, making sure to have your twigs and fuller sized branches cut down so the machine can chip them down easier! Any branches larger than 1.5 of an inch or smaller around will jam up the blades and smell like wood burning and the blades in the machine have to work harder and can cause future issues and have the motor burn out! I’m super impressed with all features and how well it runs for the price. I love the 2 big wheels on bottom to move the wood chipper around easier. I like the durable paddle tool to help push the leaves and branches in to the machine opening makes the job easier and is an excellent feature for safe yard work! I recommend this product it seem very good so far from the over all feeling and experience using it for all my yard work. I really like the lock safety feature to protect from small hand and people who don’t know how to use a wood chipper! This lock system is an excellent idea and I feel safe around this machine for this specific feature and everything it offers from the company!

            I had a lot of limbs to clean up and thought at $176 what the heck. It arrived a week earlier than scheduled (a good thing). Out of the box to running was 15 minutes. Attach the axle to the stand and the wheels to the axle. You will want pliers or a crescent wrench to tighten the wheel nuts (there is a flat spot on the axle for the crescent wrench). You will need a phillips screwdriver to attach the stand to the hopper. I plugged it in and starting to feed it limbs (half-expecting it to choke and bog down). Nope! It handled everything I was feeding it (up to 1 1/4 inch). I used a crescent wrench set at 1 1/4 inch as a caliper. If you have limbs with a lot of radials, that don't fold up along the limb, expect to do some clipper work. Keep the discharge chute clear, if it fills up it will bog the motor and shut it down. Clearing the hopper is a simple matter of unscrewing the hopper bolt (no tools required) and clearing out the sawdust. When you reassemble the hopper be sure you have the interlock lined up with slot. The sawdust is about the size of what comes from a small chainsaw, perfect for your garden beds as it will break down and add to your soil. Ease of assemble 5 stars Operation 5 stars For a light duty chipper I am extremely impressed!

              Works great for my palo verde!
              I bought this chipper to help slowly clear my property of palo verde that is taking over. It works great to chip palo verde, especially when fresh cut. This inexpensive chipper easily works through this type of shrub up to 1" in diameter. It struggles a bit on larger diameter or harder woods such as citrus, but is perfect for my needs. I've got a couple of hours of run time in at this point and the blades are still in good condition. I hope to get a lot more use from it, but at this price it has already saved that amount in weekend time I've gotten back compared to trimming manually to fit in the yard bin.

              I was surprised by how small this thing was. Assembles easily and is relatively quiet. Easy to clear occasional clogs when you put too much green material in with a lot of leaves. Would recommend for light to medium yard work. 4 out of 5 stars only because it won't do bone. Or any organic matter attached to, say, bone. Got messy. Oh well. Back to the store for some lime I guess.
