Worth The Price
Just the right size for jobs around the house. I have pruned three pine trees so far and the earthquake chipper devoured the limbs like a starving beaver. If you are willing to take your time and do a little prep work on the branches before putting them into the chipper it goes fairly quick.

I just made the branches more hopper friendly by removing any knots, knurls, and bends that may pose a problem during the feeding process. That being said, after pruning and prepping each tree I was... more
Pros: Durable, Price, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

My parents are in their 70s, and bought this monstrosity of a machine, so I pulled it out of the box for the first time. They bought it at Menards in Wausau. I put oil in it, gas in it, followed all the procedures, went to start it, and it would not start.

I called Menards, and they gave me the run-around. What do I do if a brand-new machine would hope to see it work. So far, I would not recommend this machine.
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Brand New Will Not Start

Powerful Chipper, Poor Wheel Design
I ordered the chipper online and it got here quickly. It was pretty easy to set up, just bolt on the handle and go. I filled the chipper with oil/ gas and wheeled it across my yard to my brush pile to start shredding.

I didn't even make it to the pile when the chipper leaned to one side and one of the cheap plastic wheels just crumbled. I had to drag my brand new $630 chipper the rest of the way ( was so mad at this point, wasn't about to drag it to the barn without shredding something)!... more

Love This Machine!
I had read the reviews and one had said it was a beast....and yes it is.....I am a 57 year old fat lady, and I found it easy to start and have yet to have my first "jam". It does give me a bit of a backache after hours of use, but hey, I think that has more to do with my physical condition then the machines fault. I cannot comment on the idea that its hard to put together because I purchased it assembled. LOVE THIS MACHINE.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, Not At All Hard To Start Like Some Stated Love It
Cons: No Cons From Me

Check For Loose Hardware
Make sure you point the exit flap away from your car, etc. The blades came out when I started it.

No more window - also a hole in the roof.

It started easy, though :)

MD RESPONDS: The owner's manual recommends checking for loose hardware when first setting up the unit, and every 5 hours after that.

Great Chipper, Bad Wheels.
It's a great chipper with quite a bit of power. It always starts on the first pull. It does have a couple problems. The wheels are cheap plastic the second day I used it one of the wheels developed a crack and it eventually just broke off. Also the way the bag attaches to the unit isn't very well designed, it will blow off if it isn't on just right. That's a minor gripe though. Overall I would recommend it, just be prepared to possibly upgrade the wheels.

Feed Too Small
The feed jams easily if branches are not straight. I find that I have to cut branches to chip them.
Pros: Durable, Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Difficult To Use, Too Small Of Feed Feed Jams Easily If Branches Are Not Straight
