Awesome machine. It does a great job @ what it is designed to do. I was able to chip up six cubic yards of mulch (I know this because I have a six cubic foot wheelbarrow that I loaded up 25 times when distributing the mulch in the back of my property, do the math & it's about 5.8 cu yards) in less than eight hours. It used about two and a half gallons of gas, which really surprised me. I thought a 15HP engine would go thru more than that.
I have several neighbors who can't wait to use this.
However, anyone buying this tool has to realize it is HEAVY: 270 pounds. Even on the big low pressure tires, it is tricky to maneuver. It was a challenge for me & my burly neighbor to get it up in my back yard.
First of all, I used this tool for the first time yesterday & it did a fantastic job of chipping up a large pile of branches. I now have a pile of finely chipped mulch, which is more than 2 cubic yards in size. I will spread this around the back of my property to keep the weeds down. I am quite pleased with this purchase. I was motivated to buy this particular model based on the more than 260 very positive reviews. This tool is really overkill for my situation, but I know my neighbors will use it.
One thing to be aware of, it is HEAVY. I needed the help of my young next door neighbor to pull this up into my backyard. My son-in-law wants to use it, but he is going to next to bring his ramps to get this on his truck. It would require three or four strong guys to lift it.
Bought this in December 2017 to shred leaves and chip small branches from my one acre, it worked like a champ, easy to start, chews up leaves in no time flat. This year (2019), I pulled it out of the shed, parked it by my compost heap, filled the tank with fresh gasoline, pulled the rope, and it started right up!
My wife and I were looking for a good chipper- shredder for months… We wanted a product that would be reliable and sturdy at a good price; consequently, we researched many. Our objective was a chipper-shredder that was easy to use, last for years, shred lawn debris, and cut at least 4” branches. Every year we discard bags of leaves and branches, perfect organic substances for your soil if you take the time to reduce it to degradable mulch. We wanted to use this “GOLD”. Our search for the ideal product led us to the Brush Master 15 HP. We ordered it on 21st September and received on October 4th and were pleasantly surprised by the condition that the chipper- shredder arrived in. We carefully assembled the Brush Master following the directions. The excitement began when the Brush Master started on the first pull. This monster chews 4’’branches without hesitation. We made wonderful chips (about 0.5”) and fine mulch from leaves. We worked all day….twice stopping to refuel. There is some vibration, but it is minor, even my wife fed branches into the chipper for hours without a problem. We are very happy with our “MONSTER” BRUSH MASTER 15 HP, and would definitely recommend it.
All I can say is Wow! I recieved this machine right to my door in 3 days, I was happy with the delivery, after putting the simple parts together, I filled it up with Gasoline and oil, it started on first pull. I have a top of the line Troy Built and it would not chip bigger than 2 inch branches, so I decided to give this a try, well to my suprise it chipped 4" with ease in just moments, my entire yard was then cleaned with all the branches in just a few hours, what a beautiful machine this is. This machine even comes with spare blade, ear protection, eye protection and all the things you ever need. My only dissapointment is now I have no more branches and debris to chip as it's now all gone! Oh yes this machine is so good, only thing is it is very heavy and you probably need a utility Vehicle or small Tractor to pull it around, but this is the best machine anywhere for the money, I would not hesitate buying it before it is gone!
After trying to find a used one with no luck at all. I checked the other new machines, and wow were they high priced, upwards to $2500 or better. For $1000 you can't go wrong with this machine, and that included delivery. Which to me adds up since it came from the east coast. Really impressed with the construction and quality of the machine and the extras that come with it, It is easy to assemble, pulls nicely behind the golf cart. I took it out to the garden and it chopped up corn stalks and corn cobs very nicely. With the 15 horse engine there is lots of power to do the job. I was more surprised that it came from China, they have came a long ways on details, construction and painting. It starts easy and and for the money I have no hestiation on recommending this machine.
I shopped both local stores and on the net to find a chipper that would stand up to a lot of use. The ones I saw in local stores just did not inspire confidence. After reading twenty seven good reviews and one bad one about this chipper i decided this would be my choice. After all, for a difference of only a couple of hundred dollars i would get a much more powerful and much heavier (275 lb shipping weight) machine. With freight paid and the extras that were included it was almost an even deal compared to the smaller machines. It was one of my best decisions for a long time. It eats everything in sight. My neighbors line up for the fun of feeding branches and even complete small trees into the chute. Get this one.
Purchased chipper based on great reviews and I was not disappointed. Have used it for two full days and it did everything I asked...shredded 4"+ limbs with no problem. The 15 hp engine started with 1st/2nd pull every time and never missed a beat when shredding limbs of any size. This machine is heavy, but this is to be expected. GREAT PRODUCT!
The machine was missing two critical nuts to put the chute together. I had to go buy it at a local hardware store which was an odd size. This was very frustrating. You expect everything to be perfect once you pay this much money. Otherwise a nice strong machine that does good work
I have already put about 35 hours on this machine and it is working great. My primary use of this is clearing away shrubs, tree limbs up to 4" diameter and new-lings tree's. Starts right up every time. The engine doesn't hesitate with any size or amount. Great product.
I want to take the time to let anyone looking for an awesome chipper that this 15hp chipper is unbelieveable. The shipping was quick, there is minimal assembly w/ easy instructions and the quality will exceed your needs. This machine instantly devours whatever you put in it. I have a bit of acerage w/ lots of trees, dead branches and such and the cleanup is made easy w/ my new chipper.
Follow the easy to read instructions to the letter when adding the oil as too little or too much, you won't be able to start it.
You will not find a better chipper for the $ The outstanding reviews are right, I would not be surprized if this chipper goes way up in price. The chipper was even better than I would of hoped for, you can put a big branch in the chipper shoot and let go and the chipper does all the work for you, if it has to big of side branches coming of just cut them off, or you can put a bunch of smaller branches in there and say goodby, if there is alot of green on the branch all you do is just very softly push on the branches untill they get inside the hole and the chipper will do the rest. It is a pleasure to use and almost not even work, it will do the work for you not you work for the chipper. I have a troy built 10HP 3" capasity, No way and it was alot of work and the vibearation was really bad because you have to force the branch threw, this thing does the work for you. If you have been thinking about getting this chipper DONT WAIT you will be happy you did. GREAT CHIPPER, GREAT PRICE
