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

Working With The Chipper/shredder
I was really surprised how this machine could grab and chomp up the branches. The only thing we found that we didn't realize was when you put a branch in it has to be free of little branches on it. They don't go into the feed so we had to chop all of them off so that takes a little extra time otherwise it works great!
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Fast, Durable

Fine Mulcher
I don't use it for branches - hate that chute with the stiff rubber cover. However, for trimmings from our vast landscape plants, it is great. Creates a very fine mulch. Starts easily. The bag attachment is really bad. After draw stringer broke the first day, I jury-rigged closure with a series of metal clips even then, the bag occasionally slips off due to lack of good retention. Overall, though, I am happy with the unit.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Fast
Cons: Draw String On Bag Broke On First Use, Drawstring Broke On Day 1

Good Performing Chippper
I really like the unit, very powerful and really chews up the limbs, twigs and leaves. Very happy with it with two exceptions. The Briggs & Stratton engine can be a little hard to start at times and, my biggest complaint is that the collection bag is very poorly designed to attach to the chipper. It has pulled out several times and now with only the third use the fastener has broken which does not allow the string to tighten around the outlet.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Durable

Roger,
Roger,

Please feel free to give us a call and we can discuss the issues you are having. This may be something Earthquake is willing to warranty and something we would have no issue looking into for you. The bagging systems on all chippers with like design can be a little tedious at times as we know, so feel free to give us a call.

Great Shredder For The Money!
I was very pleased to open up my very nearly fully assembled chipper a couple of weeks ago. After installing 2 bolts (provided) and adding oil I was ready to go. This thing is a beast! It will devour 3" limbs with ease. You do have to make sure that they are straight without knots sticking out or they will get stuck in the feeder chute. The discharge chute for the chips could be elongated (which I may do) so that attaching the bag would be easier. Overall this is a great machine for the... more

Earthquake Chipper Review
Likes:
The lower hopper height makes for fast shredding. I like the chipped product size-makes nice mulch. Chips faster than my last unit (Troy-bilt).

Dislikes:
Engine oil fill and check port is not convenient (Briggs & Stratton issue). Debris discharge port and how the debris bag is attached is a joke. I had to use an old bag from a previous Troy-bilt unit. I know the chipper cone chute cover is a safety item but you can't see anything when items aren't pulled in.

Thought I was... 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

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

Powerhouse
Good performer. Powerful. Rips 3" branches without problem. Gas efficient. Easy to move around.

Hopper does not feed into shredder as well as it could. The assembly is not easy...poor instructions, wrong and missing nuts and bolts, plastic hopper holes misaligned.

Chippers Direct has no customer service. Didn't call back. Luckily I live in Cumberland, WI where chipper is made. Nice folks the Earthquake people.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Bad Instructions, The Hopper Holes Are Misaligned Wrong Bolts
