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

It's Ok, But...
First ten hours were fine, until I got a jam. Major effort to open it up for access to clear the jam. Chip bag attachment points are an afterthought, and problem if you don't pay attention. Chip deflector in hopper does not prevent lots of chips flying back at operator. Noisy. Need to wear both eye and ear protection.

Tropical Paradise
I live in Panama, a tropical paradise, except for shedding mango and cashew trees, add to that large teak leaves and palm fronds and you know why I bought this tool. It just arrived out of customs and will begin to use it this weekend, Will write a usage and performance review later,

I have a large composting bin of 12' x 12' x 3' and want to directly unload the chipped and shredded branches & leaves into it.. Will need to fab up something to control the exiting materials. I rated... more

Great Purchase
Took down an entire ash tree and used the earthquake to chip all I could. I read all the reviews and talked to customer service to make sure it was what would work for my home. This is a great product. It chipped everything with ease and the top loader was great for all the small debris. At first I was hesitant because it did not have the usual long shoot for branches but this design is a lot easier to work with.

My only suggestion is like many on these boards is the bag has a tendency to... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Wish The Top Hopper Was Metel, Bag Staying On Poor Design

Good Value For A Small Chipper
Started right out of box, added oil, checked for loose nuts, bolts and fasteners. After an hour and a half round trip to the hardware store and 87 cents got me the two muffler bolts that were missing, shame on that factory worker at the plant in China that did not care to install them at all. Other than that the machine works as intended.

Bagging System
This is an awesome piece of equipment, works as easily as a standard push lawn-mower for starting up. I haven't run across anything this thing won't mulch/chip. Yeah it vibrates and makes some noise for sure, but it is a chipper.

The ONE complaint I have is their bagging system! I have had it less than a month and have had 2 bags clasp break on me already. Also the left over rope from the bag got sucked into the outlet and was completely chewed. There has got to be a better way.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality
Cons: Bagging System

Great Light Duty Shredder!
I have used the shredder for only 4 or 5 hours but I can say that it is as powerful a chipper/shredder that you will find that is not designed for commercial use.

It starts on first pull. I have a large wooded lot and it can be a little difficult to pull around by hand, but it will do the job when you get it there. It will not disappoint.

Very Powerful Machine, But The Bag Does Not Stay On
I purchased this to take the big piles of mulch that were left behind after Sandy, here in New Jersey so I could reduce the mulch down to something that looked more attractive.

My problem has been that it turned the mulch pretty much into dust, so I tried running it slower, then it clogged up on me. So if there is a process you can suggest, please do.

The main problem is that one has to feed soft material pretty slowly, otherwise it will clog up. When used in that manner it works really... more

Good Overall Value
I originally intended to buy the Yard Beast, but it can't be sold in the People's Republic of CA. So I went with the second recommendation. I have no experience with chippers/shredders, so this is based on my expectations only.

Overall build quality seems fine. It's pretty sturdy and mostly metal except for the hopper, which appears to be a pretty tough plastic.

It's not light but I can move it around myself, including up and down a pretty steep path. It shreds very aggressively as... more

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
