All I expected. Strong motor handles the demand.
This wood chipper is so powerful and does an amazing job in chipping branches up to 4 inches. It is sheer joy to work with it. I highly recommend to anyone contemplating a wood chipper.
After just a couple of uses I am totally satisfied with this DEK machine. It rolled through my large piles of tree-trimmings and branches - many up to 3" thick (anything bigger is firewood). It's light enough to manuever around the yard without the tow bar, and solid enough to stay put once positioned. The noise level wasn't too bad either. My only wish is that it had a blower function to allow the mulch to expel from the machine rather than dump at its feet. But overall, I am very satisfied. This is a great chipper. Well worth the cost.
Works just as advertised. Good choice
Worked for several hours, first season. So far so good
We did tons of research on wood chippers and we are super glad we decided on this one. This chipper is a workhorse and we’ve had zero problems with it from the day we received it.
Putting it together was a breeze. Our neighbors used it and they could not stop talking about it. I’ve never used DEK before but I will going forward. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.
This unit is great! It has handled everything I have given it. Starts easy, chips & shreds everything, and gives me all the mulch I would ever need in a season. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for such a unit to use on their property!
If you have large tree limbs to remove this works great. If your dealing with leaves not so much, because the feed hole at the bottom of the hopper is a little small so you have to feed it gradually to prevent clogs. Overall the unit has plenty of power, makes a fine mulch, and is way better than the lower horsepower units. Id recomend it with these things in mind.
Motor runs really strong. Chips really well. Rubber on chute wears fast, also purchase a few blades. 3” branch’s wear blade fast. The mulcher is also a beast.
It performed great. Would highly recommend.
I am well pleased with with this chipper. Was concerned about quality buying sight unseen but that was unfounded. Quality is good assembly was no problem. We used the chipper for four hours or more and was well please with how little gas it used in that time no even a full tank. Engine started on first pull after adding the gas and oil. Now for the reason you buy a chipper shredder it easily shredder everything we put in it. I had some dead black locust and even the chain saw takes time to work thru a 4" piece but the DEK chewed it up and spit it out. On the side of the hopper it says you can feed up to 3/4" sticks in to it, and yes you can but I would not recommend it because when it gets a hold of the branch or stick it jerks it in violently, it much better feed into the chipper and does a nicer job chipping sticks then shredding them. We learned to trim of side branches and if you can compress the lumber with branches down to 4" and feed into the chipper it's a Time saver, we were feeding in branches over 10' long. It is a big purchase but I believe you do get what you paid for with DEK chipper.
