Power Equipment Direct Recommended

This unit gets our "Best" rating because it has all of the features of our "Better" pick, and more.

It can handle branches up to 4 inches thick. two inches may not seem like a lot, but try breaking a 2" branch over your knee. Then try breaking a 4" branch- you'll be lucky not to break your knee, instead.

The engine is larger, and comes with pneumatic tires which helps while towing with an ATV or tractor. Plus it comes with a chip collection bag, wrench, spare... more

Strong Performance, Minor Defects.
I've only ran this machine a couple hours, but I expect many years of dependable service out of this machine. This is my assemble and initial performance review:

Pros:
1) 300lb sturdy shipping crate with wood pallet arrived in good shape.
2) I shoveled 4" to 6" chunks of Oak bark and small chunks of Oak wood into the hopper left over from my firewood splitting and it shredded it into a fine mulch without slowing the motor down but just a bit.
3) The chipper ate a 3"... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Durable, I'd Buy It Again

Dead Hackberry Trees
Looked at first it would do the job. Then problems started. The unit has major bolt and nut problems. Nuts came off on the the bearing blocks holding the main shaft. Before I could shut the unit down the roll pin on one of the hammer shafts came out and dropping a hammer blade into the mix which was very bad news. Also burned up the drive belt. Then problems with the nuts on the blade bolts. They're a poor grade, threads strip out on them (Made in China is my guess). There parts list online is... more

Great Chipper Hard To Start
This chipper is a beast, it says it can handle up to 4" but that is a bit of a stretch. I ran 2 and 3" branches with no problem at all. I really like the small chips too.

What I don't like is it has been a pain to start. I contacted Dek on Saturday (their manual says they are open 24-7) nope open during the work week but you can leave a message to which they haven't responded.
Pros: Fast

Mike's End Of Season Review
I bought this machine in March. It's 7 months later, and I've chipped and shredded leaves, branches & vines, enough to fill 10 heaping wheelbarrows full of 3/4" mulch.

I am completely satisfied with it's performance. It starts just as easy as when I first bought it and I have not had any real problems. But there are some things to consider:

1. The hopper top opening is 18"x 21" and funnels down to 5"x 6" just above the hog chamber. Because it is only... more

I have used this chipper to clear a lot of small trees and bushes and have not had any trouble out of the machine. It runs a lot more quiet than I expected. Have recommended this to several of my friends.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Quiet, Reliable

Good Machine
Did the trick, have run a lot of branches through it. Only negative was how to figure out the choke, labeling is not clear. Yes I would recommend it, just wear ear muffs, it's loud!
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Fast
Cons: Bad Instructions
