  2 Questions
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.

Super Mulcher - Redux
Just a follow-up on my previous review. I've made a few simple mods that really improve the usability of the chipper on my property.

1. added a Briggs & Stratton oil fill tube (8 bucks) - still need a flex funnel to fill but no longer have fill tube occluding drain port...makes fill measurement easier
2. bolted down the tow bar so that towing is more secure and chipper follows tractor better
3. replaced skinny tires with wide no-flats so that the chipper doesn't sink into soft soil... more

Unimpressed
After reading all of the great comments I had high expectations. The chipper does not seem very sturdy to me and I'm not sure it will last long.

The biggest issue I have is that it really wouldn't chip. We cleared out some trees and were trying to chip them up. From the beginning when we would put it a branch iot would either sit there or gt sucked in and wrap around the chipper causing it to stall and we would have to manually reach in and try to dislodge and unwrap the branch. I'm now... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality, Durability

Jay,
Never Reach Inside the Machine To Manually Dislodge A Branch. I would suggest reviewing the owner's manual to make sure you're operating this chipper correctly. Here's a few tips directly from the manual:

The chipper is designed to handle tree limbs and branches up to approximately 3 (7,6 cm) in diameter.

Maintain control of the materials you are feeding to prevent them from whipping around.

For additional troubleshooting, Earthquake can be contacted directly @ (800) 345-6007

Worst Purchase I Have Ever Made!!!!!!!!!
This is $600 out the window. Menards will not take it back. Do not buy anything that uses gasoline or oil. Menards will not let you return it if you are not satisfied. I purchased mine from the North Lincoln, Nebraska store and received very rude customer service.
Cons: Bad Instructions, Difficult To Use, Low Quality, Durability

Haven' Yet Used It But...
I wanted to say that if you consider yourself handy, you don't even need the instructions. I looked at the nuts, bolts, washers etc., then looked at what needed to be assembled. All of the nuts and bolts could only be used in one place. (The bolts were NOT short. The hopper needs to be tapped into place so the bolts reach. The bolts are short for a reason). With a glance at the instructions, I had it assembled in less than ten minutes (once out of the box). Then I went back and tightened... more

A Ravenous Beast
This machine has devoured everything I have fed it, including things like wet Gourd vines and fresh Podocarpus leaves, things that caused my previous shredder to gag. The chipper is beyond belief, slicing everything easily.

I do have a few quibbles, though. Assembly and set-up were unnecessarily difficult. The oil filler is tucked away and hard to reach the mounting holes in the feed chute did not line up with the bolts, forcing me to re-cut them. There are also two bolts protruding into... more

Great Chipper
Easy to use and setup. Works like a champ. Only one issue, the throttle vibrates off the max position due to the vibrating of the chipper. I used some duct tape to keep it at max and it works great.

I've used it for several hours now and I'm reasonably happy with some reservations and advice.

On the good side:
Delivery was excellent with the truck delivery being smooth as silk.Great motor on the machine! As many have said, started on first pull and runs very well. It is easy to overpower though but I think that might be the nature of a low powered residential chipper/shredder so take your time with it. Small twigs and branches feed better bushy end first for some reason while... more

Very Effective Chipper
I read many of the reviews and they were helpful. The flex funnel for oil made adding oil no problem, and, a Dremel enlarged the shredder bin holes easily to attach it. Ran the machine for 5 hours first use and only had one jam. I learned to hold back a little on the 2-3 inch size branches so it wouldn't try to self feed too fast, and it worked great. Made fast work of many piles of brush and limbs.
Pros: Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations

Really Great Chipper
We had been searching for a chipper to replace an old Sears model for years. Nothing we came across impressed. In the Fall of 2012, we came across reviews for the very popular Earthquake 9060300 and took a chance on it. This is really an awesome chipper. It works as advertised, has very little vibration compared to most chippers, starts right up and has been a great addition to our outdoor equipment collection, especially now that Virginia like many other states restricts open burning... more

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
