The Gas Chipper Shredder To Buy!
This is not my first chipper shredder and I was impressed the moment it was out of the box. Solid steel construction all around, a reputable engine- the list continues. I have used industrial sized brush chippers before and this seemed to follow a similar design (minus a feed system). So far so good with this product. The Yardmax Chipper Shredder is more than capable of handling whatever garden waste suburban homeowners can throw at it. In my experience, the machine makes the task of cleanup... more

Can't Give A Good Review B/c The Motor Isn't Running Properly
This unit is well built and is what I thought it was. I had a hard time starting the motor and still canít get the throttle to regulate the speed. It runs at idle only. I may have to take it to a dealer as I haven't used it yet, so we will see. It needs a tow bar because itís hard for me to move.
Pros: High Quality
Cons: Unreliable, Bad Instructions

The Soviet Tank Of Chippers
Though the site said the chipper ships in 2 to 5 business days it actually took 9 business days to ship. The chipper arrived well packaged in a 'crate' made up of a combo of wood, metal and cardboard. The total shipping weight was 265lbs so I was happy that the freight driver had a tailgate lift and power pallet jack or I might have never gotten it off the truck without tracking down a couple of friends.

Unpacking was no problem and the unit is pretty much assembled save for the... more

Yardmax Chipper Works Perfectly
The B&S engine on the YardMax Chipper starts easily and runs smoothly. The Chipper handles small trees and small limbs very well and I haven't used it for sizes above 1.5 ". This is just what I needed for chipping weed trees in my orchard and storm limbs in the yard. Highly recommended.

"Chippers Direct was quick to take charge of the B&S engine repairs, which were probably due to damage in shipping. They covered the repairs under the warranty without any expense to me. Subsequently, the engine ran perfectly. Thanks."

Monster Chipper!
I did a lot of research online before finally choosing the Yardmax. I compared it to the Patriot, Tazz, Southland, DR, Earthquake, Troybilt and several others. I looked at their features, read their reviews and watched their videos. While watching the videos, I noticed that all of them required you to trim your branches so they are relatively straight before pushing them into the chipper chute. I own 10 acres in TN with a lot of trees and shrubs. I have neither the time nor desire to stand... more

Better Then Expected
I looked at over 100 chippers until I found the Yardmax. The price seamed a little low and I was worried that the machine would not perform very well. I took a chance and bought it anyways. The machine is heavy duty plated steel, not thin pressed sheet and has a heavy fly wheel cutter and thick cutter blades. All bearings have grease inserts and are easy to work on. The discharge chute works great. I can blow the chips right into my wagon and don't have to shovel chips up off ground. The... more

Works Great, Requires Some Patience
The video for the product shows a man feeding dead wood into the chipper. When you receive the chipper instructions, it says not to put dead wood in it. You also get a recommendation not to load pine needles. I donít know how you avoid some dead wood and certainly not pine needles. The good news is that both are fine, but you have to adjust. Donít put 3Ē dead wood in there. Limit to 1Ē. Put pine in there, but feed slowly and give the machine time to catch up. It does clog from time to... more

Solid Build, Quiet, & Love The Auto Feed
Used it several times over a few hours. The machine is solidly built and package dis-assembly was pretty straight-forward. Love the auto feed for this price range. Lots of power and jams are rare, but easy to clear. Wish they had a wingnut rather than an 18 mm nut. Compact design makes storage easy very. I'm pleased with my purchase.

"The only hitch was that we had to unload from the truck to my smaller trailer as the delivery rig was too big. Not a big deal. I put it together on my trailer and then rolled it off."

Review Update - Belt Smoking Issue
This is an update to my earlier review. It turns out the problem I had with smoking belts was due to a defect. The lower belt pulley was actually rubbing on one of the bolts in the chipper housing causing the belts to slip and smoke. I called Yardmax and they confirmed the problem after I emailed photos.

They immediately shipped out a replacement unit and picked up the old one. The new unit is working just fine and has proper pulley clearance with no belt smoking. I've put about four... more

Very Good Chipper
This is my first chipper so I don't really know much about them. This product came very well packaged. Very easy to put together with excellent instructions. Started with one pull and everything worked as advertised. My project was to chip a lot of cedars. I found that the large branches (2-3") would auto feed faster than the chipper could process them. The smaller ones would clog the discharge.

After studying the problem, I decided to remove the flap on the discharge. It has an area... more

Perfect For Orchard Prunings
Zips through orchard prunings an inch and a half in diameter or less at a good rate. Bigger limbs can slow it up or stop it without some care in feeding. It is well balanced, relatively quiet, easy to move, start and use. Nothing else like it in this horsepower and price class.

Great Home Chipper
I chose this chipper mainly because it looked like a smaller version of commercial chippers that I had used in the past. When the trucking company delivered it to my garage, I was impressed that it was packaged so well Ė palletized, heavy cardboard with a steel framing around it to protect it. Unboxing it went quickly and the assembly was really easy, mainly bolting on the feed hopper that came in two pieces. I liked the design and construction with heavy guage steel housing and a belt drive... more

"I did ask for advice about this chipper versus the TAZZ one. Dale recommended this one even though there was only review on it. My order was processed quickly, and it was delivered on time. I paid for the tailgate service and the truck driver delivered into my garage."
