Q: Mike-where do I get a replacement guard (the plastic tube that protects from the blade, front side. Hopefully there is a metal version that won't fall to pieces after the first few "tough" uses.
by Scott from Kentucky on September 25, 2011

A: You have to get a replacement through the manufaturer. Here is there technical support line. 1800-345-6007

Q: I really like the Model 9060300
Earthquake (3") 206cc Chipper / Shredder With Briggs & Stratton Intek Engine, but so many reviews on chippers complain about the nuts loosen from the vibrations...same with this one? I also weigh, only 126 lbs, will I be able to push/pull it around my property without having to hire a mule?
Is the 14 gal gas can with siphon a necessity for out in the woods?

by Fred Bloesch from New York on March 20, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. We have not had any issues with the nuts loosening from vibrations on this model. This chipper is very lightweight and easy to maneuver. I would think you would hvae no issue moving the unit. The 14 gallon gas can with siphon would be a nice idea if you far in the woods.

This unit earned our "Better" slot because of it's heavy duty components & larger capacity.

Even if you aren't planning on using the mulch for your landscape, this chipper/shredder will turn 20 bags of yard waste into just 1! That's less to lug to the curb, and less in the landfill- a good thing all around.

The large 2 bushel collection bag means you can get more done before you have to stop and empty it.

This unit handles branches up to 3" in diameter.

This Thing Is Chipping Monster!
If it fits in the chute, this thing will chip it!

Easy to start

Easy to maneuver

Very easy to use

We bought this machine last fall and used it to do some yard clean up. Nothing too heavy, just turning piles of leaves into mulch that we in turn composted. The winter here was pretty harsh, with lots of branches falling off, or breaking. We also had a couple of Spruce trees that needed to come down because they were overcrowding the other trees. There were also several Choke Cherry... more
Pros: Price, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

Well...
The unit is powerful enough to do the expected job, but it doesn't clear the debris from the inside of the machine very well. It clogged up and stopped within 15 minutes each of the first two times we used it. I had to take the casing of the chipping area to clear it out. Then we took off the guard from the top and especially had to remove the metal guard from the exit chute to let the shredded material flow out better. Works much better now, but is still starting to slowly clog. Will need... more
Pros: Easy To Store, Powerful
Cons: Difficult To Use, Gets Clogged Easily

Power In A Small Package
Already assembled out of the box. Had to remove chipper chute because no oil fill extension tube was included as shown in manual.

Chipped everything I put down the chute. Old, new branches. I was most impressed the way it handled the abundant and tough vines I had stockpiled. DO WEAR THE SAFETY GLASSES THEY PROVIDE.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Arrived Quickly And Assembled
Cons: No Oil Extension Tube As Shown In Manual Difficult To Change Oil

Perfect Machine For Yards
Powerful, solid, compact and perfect for yard leaves, twigs and small brush. The Earthquake chipper started on the very first half pull!
Oh yeah, the holes on the hopper are not correct even after the manufacturer obviously tried drilling them a second time, but this was expected upon reading other reviews. The guy who drilled the holes must have also counted the washers since there was one short.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality

This One Is A Keeper
I bought the old home place (4 acres - 3 of which are wooded) and have begun clearing the underbrush and saplings. This chipper/shredder is the berries. It does like to chip/shred. I have used it steady for two days of 6-8 hours each, and it just keeps on chipping/shredding. It is hearty and easy to start. A good value for the money.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again, Price
Cons: Oil Additionchecking

Extremely Pleased With Purchase
This machine definitely exceeded our expectations. We had returned one to the local big box store as after we got it home and put together, it would NOT start at all.

We like the large diameter wheels making it easy to move to the spot you need it. It is a breeze to start - and we know very well about a hard machine to start.

The Leave hopper on top should be fed slowly so it does not jam - otherwise works well. Power is very important, this machine works very well for our needs -... more

Had to replace our old, worn out chipper. Selected this based on features, price and customers comments. So far, happy with the performance. My wife likes the ease of starting, compared to our previous chipper.

Good Power For The Price
Just got the unit, so can't speak to reliability or durability, but so far impressed with its performance. The holes for the upper feed shoot almost lined up, so needed to be drilled to get it installed. Otherwise, set up was simple. Started on the first pull each time and ran smoothly. Really handles typical yard clippings well, and mulches them very small, a plus when adding them to a com-poster. If it continues to perform as it has, I will be very pleased with the purchase.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again, Fast, Easy Starting
Cons: Assembly Hiccup

No Separate Opening To Check And Fill Oil
It works fine except for one thing:

No separate opening to check and fill oil with easy access... Can I get it additionally and install?
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Difficult To Use, No Dipstick To Check Oil Level

Ihor,
Unfortunately we are unaware of a kit which would be available to make the spout easier to get at and this is one of the downsides to this particular chipper. It is a good machine, but not every aspect was well thought out when it came to simple maintenance.

Powerful At A Low Price
The chipper was easy to start, very powerful but can only chip up to 3", it would be even better if can chip larger branches.
The plastic upper cone shape collector came separately in the box and the assembly holes were cut wrong and took me 2 hours just try to enlarge the holes to fit the screws. The engine is powerful, but parts quality were cheap. For the price, I would say it is a fair deal and just hope the engine will last.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Bad Instructions, Packaging, Low Quality, Durability

This Chipper Is Amazing!
I spent 4 hours this weekend chipping the brush/branches in my back yard/woods and this machine just ate them up. The sticks need to be somewhat straight, but that would be the norm for most chippers. This 9 HP chipper has plenty of power and handles a 2" branch. One thing you need to avoid is trying to put a "Y" through the tube. It consistently gets caught. It didn't take me long to figure that out so I just nip them off with my chainsaw before sending them through. After all,... more
