Good and strong for residential use. The only reason is the branch chute is too small. The branches must be completely straight or it won’t go in. Really noisy but that’s expected.
I purchased this Electric CH11 Chipper and found that this is the best chipper out there. It is a monster at doing tree limbs, palm leafs. tall grass and any thing you want ground up. I did two truck loads of tree limbs in about 4 hrs and was wowed at how well it performed. It chipped up three inch limbs great. If you can feed it into the chute it will grind it up perfectly with little effort. I am very impressed with its performance. The electric start feature is worth the extra money if you are working close to electricity. I always turn off the fuel valve, slow down the motor's RPM and run it out of fuel before storing. This monster eater is a great product and I recommend it. My old chipper from Harbor Freight just could not do it. P. Cowen
Had to drain some fuel out of the carburetor to get it start. Then it started very easy manually. I did not have to use the electrical 120v option to start the engine. The wood chipper met my expectations after I learned how to feed the brushes/branches into wood chipper.
The motor is powerful but chips are leaking every where.
Rating provided by a verified purchaser
Hard to control the output because it is so powerful blowing out. could use a better system for catching the chips. putting a barrel by the discharge melted because it was too close to the muffler.
This review is preliminary, as I have used this new unit for only about half an hour. After substantial use I will update with a better sample of performance to go on.
The engine is very powerful, starts easily with the pull cord and hardly labors with a hopper full of leaves or 3 inch round branches from hardwood trees.
The plastic chute needs improving. The spring loaded cover at the top of the leaf chute whIch shields the user from flying bits of leaves and branches, is a bit unwieldy.
Also be sure to spray silicone dry lubricant or lithium grease or the like on the rolled channel on the lower chute and the steel fins onto which the lower chute slides for installation. It is otherwise a tight fit that will tempt you to use a the wooden handle of a hammer or a small piece of lumber to tap the chute into place. I tried tapping mine in that way and accidently made a small crack in the lower chute. Just a nuisance, as I easily mended it with Gorilla tape.
Also there is a small gap between the lower edge of the plastic chute at its start, where it goes over the metal chute, allowing bits of chips to fly out and hit the operator. It's on the side that has only one screw to fasten it. I stopped the flying chips by covering the gap with, again, Gorilla tape.
This unit handles any leaves and sticks I put it it with ease so far, but let's see if it stands the test of prolonged use over the next couple of year... Will review after the first long job next spring or fall.
This unit seems to move quite easily on the lawn, but you may need help rolling it over the threshold of a shed door, on soft ground and definitely up a ramp into a pickup truck.
I couldn't believe how quickly & easily the chipper reduced tree branches & tree limbs into a small amount of chops!! It is amazing... & a great product!
1. This chipper starts very reliably. I haven't even needed to use the electric start yet. Just a few pulls on the manual starter.
2. It's strong and powers through good sized branches
3. Assembles very easily, Good Manual
1. I bought this version since it has an exit chute that would dump chips into a cart instead of on the ground. That was a mistake. It blows them out so hard, they fly out of the cart and onto the ground anyway. :-(
2. The chips are smaller than I'd like for using as ground cover. They don't stay in place well.
3. The leaf chute is hard to use. Things don't drop in easily and you sometimes have to push them down a bit.
Does the job. But I chose this over their other models with the exit chute nearer the ground so that I could dump into a cart, even though I wanted the tow-behind a garden tractor feature that the others had. Turns out the chute doesn't work the way I want and I can't tow this one around.
The Bush Master was easy to assemble. Worked like a charm meeting all my expectations. I highly recommend this product.
The customer service person that i worked with was wonderful and very informative with the chipper. Over all it is a great product , the manual could use a more detailed instruction for assembly.
Has chewed through everything so far. Electric start works great. It's loud, so hearing protection is a must. Has saved many a a bag of yard green waste from going to the landfill, and has improved the quality of our compost.
