Love This Machine
Ordering easy. Shipped on time. Starts first pull EVERY time. Large, tough motor. Runs very smoothly. Great performance. Love it. I chose this over the Cub Cadet.

Sadly Disappointed
I spent a little more for what I thought was going to be an easier chipper to use, but was pretty disappointed, mainly by the design of the chipper. The limb chipper needed excessive lopper trimming so that there was -no- forks off of the limbs, not even a little nub. And then the machine would not accept any limb that had much of a bend... it only likes straight things. The shredder function was OK, but again needed to be trimmed down to non-branching pieces. And the access to the feed... more

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
I,
We are sorry to hear about the issue you are having with the chipper shredder and that you are less than satisfied. If the machine is at a local service dealer now, we will have them verify the machine is performing as it should. Depending on how dry or wet the branches are, they can be more difficult to chip causing it to jam up. The same goes for the shredder function. For this reason, it is always best to allow the wood and leaves to thoroughly dry out before processing. Having to prep branches that exceed the 3" diameter is also to be expected. Bring a dry 3" branch with you when you pick up the unit. If you need us additionally for anything, please give us a call at 877-338-0999 M-F 8:30AM-5PM PST.
Thank you,
Brian Downs | Champion Power Equipment

Strong Finish
After a seamless purchase transaction, then a short wait, delivery was as perfect as expected. Assembly was also as expected - pretty straight forward (the threading on the handle could have been more detailed and so illustrated, but trial and error prevailed.What was not anticipated was the sound and feel of something lodging in the works on the first pull to start... I could not pull the cord, and of course it would not start.I did want to get familiar with the inner workings of the chipper... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Easy To Store, Light Weight

Chipper/shredder
The chipper is not self feeding and unless the branch is straight the shoot gets jammed. Not loving it, wish I could send it back.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable

Very Satisfied After First Month Of Use
These comments are based on the first month of ownership of the Chanpion 100137 Chipper/Shredder. The unit is at the end of the 5 hr breakin period and ready for its first oil change.

Ordering from ChippersDirect and delivery from RL Carriers was excellent. Chipper was out-of-stock when ordered and I was informed of an estimated delivery date 1 month out. However, after 2 weeks, I received notification that the unit was available. Delivery via RL Carriers took 1 day to setup the unit was... more

Ok But Not Great, So Far
I might not have bought this had I known it was made in China. But anyway, assembly was easy as was starting. I had a smaller and less capable chipper years ago that when it got fed an oversize branch would just sort of cough it up and you could remove it. This unit will suck a branch down until increasing diameter stops it, then it sort of gags on it but hangs on. I had to take the chute apart twice in the first few minutes of use until I got smart and enough to stay under 3".

Once I... more

Very Satisfied So Far...
I won't give it a real work out until this fall, but from what I've seen so far I'm very pleased with it. I have a Champion generator and this seems to every bit as good when it comes to the quality of the product. It starts very easily and has great power. I don't have any trouble moving it around as long as you keep it balanced over the wheels.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Price, Plenty of power
Cons: None yet

Nice Product
This Chipper Shredder arrived neatly packed and undamaged. Assembly was minimal and it was quickly up and running on the second pull of the handle. So far this seems to have been a wise purchase. It handles what I show in it with ease and without a whimper. I am very pleased.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again

First Impressions
Just received and put together the Chipper/Shredder. The shipping was faster than expected, and the machine went together easily. As previously noted, the oil fill location is a bit of a pain, but the provided funnel helped get the oil into the engine.

Once there was oil in the engine, and before adding fuel, cranked the engine a few times to distribute the oil. Checked the oil again and added to the recommended level. Added fuel, and, expecting it to take a couple of pulls to get fuel... more

Great But Not Perfect
This machine is awesome! Arrived faster than expected, and was created very well. I have had it for about a month now and it is nearly broke in. Starts first pull nearly every time. Would be even better if it had a longer handle to move it around with, as the feed shoot is a little close when moving it. Like I said great but not perfect, that would be hard for anything. This is my new favorite yard toll, I love it!

Very Happy Chipper Owner
I have been impressed from the beginning. The ordering process was fast and simple. The delivery, aside from being free, was fast, and delivery was within the time frame promised. We were not able to be home at the time of delivery and a simple note taped to our front door with delivery instruction was followed by the delivery person.

The packaging was compact and sturdy. There were no issues of damage during shipment. Once unpacked, the minimal assembly was easy, with clear instructions... more
