Have only used it 16 hours, but has worked well. Lots of chips for where needed. Older hardwood needed to be cut to smaller lengths for chipping. Removed two small brush piles with no need for burning. Electric start is nice but only needs 1 or 2 pulls manually . Loud but most chippers are. Overall happy with purchase. Looking forward to taking care of things as they happen instead of piling and burning.
THIS CHIPPER SHREDDER IS EXCELLENT FOR HOME USE. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE FOR ME WAS TRYING TO SHRED VERY WET, HALF COMPOSTED LEAVES. IT TURNED THEM TO MUD WHICH THEN CLOGGED UP THE MACHINE. BUT SHREDDING DRY LEAVES WAS SEMI-MIRACULOUS. CHIPPING LIMBS AND BRANCHES IS FUN!
The chipper runs very good after clearing 2 acres of small trees. Three items
to be aware of. 1 The feeder will not take more then a 3 inch branch
2. pull start was very hard to use, so I just ran long cords for the elec start.
3. The bag is a waste of time, with a lot of chipping it takes you enough time
to just rake the chips away from the outlet, hooking up the bag and emptying
it would really slow you down as often as it would fill up.
We have had this chipper for a year and use it heavily to make compost for our 1/2 acre yard. We run it for hours at a time and have had little to no problems with it. It pulls large branches through easily, and makes short work of the small stuff that goes in the hopper. The blade is easy to remove and replace after sharpening. I think my husband loves it more than his car! We would definitely recommend it to anyone who needs a good shredder.

Works better than I expected. Limbs up to 3 inch, no problem. Over 3 inch and they can be difficult to feed unless they are perfectly straight.
