Will it shred cardboard if I roll it up like a branch?

No. The cardboard will unfurl and clog the unit.

No. It is hard to push leaves through the narrow slot and the spinning blade doesn't do much to the leaves.

How loud is this? Does the manufacturer identify the number of decibels?

Asked by Debbie February 2, 2020

I haven’t seen decibels but it’s not quiet. It isn’t as loud as a saw and the engine isn’t too loud when running but it makes a good racket when shredded a thicker branch

I have a lot of garden debris. Will it shred green stems such as Peonies?

Answers

It has a “pusher” to encourage the stuff to push down into the chopper. But if it is too small, it will come out I chipped. But I think peony stems are gonna work.

You should use a 12 gauge cord for 100 feet to be safe. Anything smaller could create a fire hazard or cause degraded performance or overheating and failure of the unit!

Awesome little wood chipper!
We have almost half an acre with a lot of trees, which means branches galore. This little machine is easy to use and set up and is surprisingly quiet. It makes great mulch and does wonders on our many pinecones.

(What's this)
Great handy shredder/chipper for gardens, pots or compost. This is a powerful shredder and is pretty easy to use. Ive had no major issues with it so far, other than typical issues with getting every little branch to shred. It makes a fine mulch (see picture) which is great for gardening. Small twigs about 1/16" in diameter wont always shred perfectly. You will have to shred A LOT of branches to make enough for a medium to large garden bed but this is great for small jobs. The largest branch I put in was just over an inch in diameter and it mulched fine. WEN states this works with up to 1.5 inches in diameter. If the branch won't fit in the entry hole, the machine isn't meant to shred it. The harder the wood, like maple and oak, the more the machine works to shred it. I also shredded a 1" x 1" scrap piece of pine and it worked fine. It comes with a clog clearer and handy bag for all the mulch to go into. The wheels on the shredder are great for moving it easily around the yard. Assembly was easy, just screw on the wheels and place/screw the shredder on the stand. Operation was easier, just ensure the lid is screwed down then turn it on. Stick a branch in and once it hits the two blades, it will suck the branch in and mulch comes out of the bottom. I was a bit startled at first with how powerful the machine is. A rubber flap in the hole helps ensure debris doesn't kick back at you. One big note, use a 14 or 12 gauge extension cord with this. It is a 15 amp tool (which is the most powerful electric tool I own) and most extension cords homeowners buy are 16 or maybe 18 gauge. The gauge (thickness of wires) in the cord is important as if you use a gauge smaller than 14, the wires will overheat and a fire can start. I have seen in the past the cord end melt into the tool when the wire overheats and the tool is then useless. Not good. This is a reliable, easy and fun tool to use. If you have a lot of trees on your property and want to make your own mulch, I recommend this tool. The only problem is finding a place to store it.

The wood chipper was very easy to assemble. I only used it once before the snow hit, but it was amazing! I have nothing to compare it to, but was impressed at how finely it shredded the sticks. I expected pieces to be about a half inch in length, but they were much smaller-about 1/8 or 1/16 inches in length. The only disappointing feature was the clip that holds the tool to push sticks through broke upon installation. Other than that, I can't wait for Spring to start using it again to make my own mulch!

Unless you want to shred twigs, this machine is useless. I bought this machine to shred leaves, but what they do not tell you in the description is that the opening to dump your leaves is approximately the size of a soup can. The bag at the bottom of the machine does not stay on, not is it positioned close enough to collect the shredded material. On a postive note, the customer service for this company was good. My machine was delivered with a bad wheel, and within one day a new wheel was delivered to my home. Unfortunately, I had already returned the machine back to the store.

A must remember is to slow the input of material to be chipped. Material exceeding the acceptable thickness must be hollow on the insides of the branch.

Machine works well for sticks and stems one handful at a time. Speedy chipping, collection bag makes redistribution as mulch simple. Very hard branches more than 3/4" are chewed down eventually.
