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 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

Works Better Than Expected. Can You Ask For More?
I have used the Shredder for about 10 hours now and are very pleased with the results. Hedge cuttings, ornamental grasses, branches, Cycads (Kingpalm), dead plants, leaves, fan palms and banana leaves got chewed up to mulch or soil improvements. Just remember to mix dry and wet material and tear broad leaves as the fan palm in two before you put them in the shredder.

The only thing I dislike is the unfinished way the bag that receives finished chopped mass is attached to the shredder. A... more

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

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

Worked As Expected And Better
I wanted a unit for light duty trimming around the yard and read all the reviews. This model is easy to handle, starts right up and worked as good or better than anticipated. Woody bush limbs caused more chips to be kicked out but all were handled well.

Evergreen branches went very quickly and smoothly. The bag came off once as has been reported as a challenge, but not a big problem. The discharge was a very fine mulch. All together happy with my first couple of uses.

One Day Review
I have used this machine for just one full day. I am very, very pleased with the work that this well-made heavy machine will do. I never had one jam or any problem what so ever.

I filled bag after bag of great shredded wood. This machine works as well as the reviews that I read said it would. It feels and looks like it is made for years of service. I am actually looking forward to the days of work I have cleaning up my 5 acres..

Great For Smaller Jobs
My Earthquake C/S arrived on time and in perfect condition. Setting it up was a breeze and it did a great job of shredding and chipping for about the first 20 minutes. I've learned that this is probably the right solution for smaller jobs, but I'm clearing small bushes and vines. The pieces that are 3" in diameter or less are chipped perfectly - as long as they're straight and don't have any "branches." The shredder also works great - as long as you're putting in nothing but... more
Cons: Can't Handle Vines

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

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.

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

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
