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

Great Until You Need Parts
It has been two years since I ordered this shredder and left a good review. I was happy until I needed replacement hammers.

You may be surprised when this site refers you to another supplier for the parts that are marked up so expensive you may be making your own parts like I am doing. I am hoping this site reconsiders supporting parts at a reasonable price.
Pros: Good Shredder For Small Jobs
Cons: Parts From Another Source Too Expensive

Dale,
We're sorry to have let you down, but unfortunately we don't have the capability of specializing in parts at this time. You're welcome to shop around for other prices, but please do NOT craft your own parts for your chipper. Doing so could cause serious injury to you or others and could cause further damage to your chipper.

Earthquake Chipper
I received my chipper last week a day late, but no big deal. All that was needed was to secure the handle with two supplied bolts, and add the supplied oil and fill with gas. Adding oil was a bit tricky as the fill hole is very difficult to access without a very long funnel . I solved this by tilting the machine on its side and only adding the exact amount asked for in the manual using my short neck funnel.

The chipper started first time but it was very loud. I recommend buying hearing... more
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Powerful
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Fill With Oil

Needs An Electric Starter.
I find the start rope very hard to pull. The shredder needs to have an electric starter or a clutch.

Fun And Easy To Use!
I was looking for a used chipper / shredder and almost drove 2 hours to get the one I wanted. I did my research and read a lot of reviews. Our local Menards had an Earthquake model advertised so I thought I'd look at it and read the reviews before making a long trip. It worried me a little that so many reviews said they had issues with the assembly and the oil fill location. I thought for the price I was going to give it a try before spending twice as much for a used one.
I only had... more

Beast
Bought this machine for moderate yard debris and tree branch chipping. It's a beast and devoured several cubic yards of Apple tree limbs giving me a lot of ground cover.

Two disappointments: the bag has a flimsy clasp and broke. The cinch is plastic and broke after about 50 uses. The machine is pretty powerful when discharging so the bag has a tendency to come off if not cinched down tightly. The company should fix this.
Also, I live in the Pacific Northwest. This machine does not... more
Pros: This Thing Is A Beast And Chips Well
Cons: Bag Sucks

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

Not Real Happy
I previously owned A Roto-Hoe that did everything well. Chipping and shredding were never any problem. I could just stuff anything in there and cut it or shred it without a problem. Unfortunately the Tecumseh engine quit after 15 years, and they don't make the same model anymore. So I bought this one thinking it would do the job.

I find that you have to put in the twigs one at a time, or it will clog. The protective rubber at the feed openings cause the material to bunch up and I have to... more

May Have To Return
It started on the fourth try, but would not again after about 15 minutes when it jammed on some small evergreen bush clippings. I was ready to return it after about an hour between my son and I trying to start it when I looked at the spark plug and the wire and realized the clip was too large for the tip of the plug. I pinched it with some pliers and it started on the first try. That's something you expect on an old car, not something right out of the box. Now it seems to have some sort of... more

Won't Start
I have had this for two weekends. The first weekend it started fine. The second weekend I took it out to chip the large pile of branches I cut from my tree. I tried to start and could never get started.

I tried to talk to someone at Briggs and Stratton about this problem and couldn't get through auto answer. I am very disappointed with this chipper. I ordered with the Briggs and Stratton motor because I thought it would be a better motor.
Pros: Easy To Store

Am A Proud Owner!
Takes a long time to shred a pile of leaves and gets clogged up quickly. Must feed it slowly. My Municipality provides leaf curbside pick up which is faster than shredding them, if one can wait. The shredder does a great job at shredding annual plants at seasons end to provide great mulch for the Spring time.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality
Cons: Takes Long Time To Shred Leaves
