Q: Hi Bob, There are 4 Tazz models. Though they have different engine makers/cc's, there isn't much difference between them if you look at the power (torque) or cutting (number of hammers/knives).
Is there any real difference between them that I'm not getting? Thanks.

by Michael from California on July 05, 2016

A:

Model 22752 - K33 is the only Tazz model that may be shipped to California. The chipper/shredders are the same. Only the engine make and size differ.

The Tazz K32 chipper shredder offers surprisingly effective performance in a compact package. The 25-1/2" x 30" inch footprint will take up minimal space in your garage or storage shed.

The Tazz K32 is powered by an easy-starting and powerful Viper® 212cc engine, which gives this unit enough power to chip branches up to 3” in diameter. The rugged steel hopper stands at only 34” high, so yard waste can be dropped in with minimal effort while larger branches can be fed into the... more

Love The Tazz
Great piece of machinery. Well designed, well crafted, and easy assembly. Only complaint is the vacuum as the leaves got stuck in the pipe often. As for the chipper though - fantastic. We must have run the Tazz for at least 10 hours the first couple of days and not a problem.

It made awesome mulch for the garden! The mulch got better with the second run though but you do need to feed it slowly through the hopper or it gets clogged. Regardless though, we are very happy with it. Fed... more

Fail Of A Chipper
Product is far too cheap for what you pay for it. Mine broke after about a 1/2 a tank of use. I would not recommend this unit for even the smallest chores. It is flimsy and clearly very thin gauge material. The engine hunted out of the box.
Cons: None, Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability

Fed Ex Bends Axle On Delivery
I heard some noise out front while in my home office. I was expecting the delivery from your company via Fed Ex. The doorbell was not rung and by the time I got outside I observed the Fed Ex man putting the Tazz partially back in its box. He quickly left and I was confused as to why he didn't ring the doorbell. I thought nothing of it until I assembled the machine and the axle was extremely bent.

It appears that he threw it off the truck in order to do that much damage. So much that it... more

Great Machine
It started on the first pull of the cord and has a very smooth running motor. It does a nice job on all kinds of branches and garden debris. It has solid construction and its easy to empty the collection bag. Mine arrived with corner of box smashed, but I accepted it anyway. I discovered a wheel shaft was bent. Hammered it back the best I could, but is still bent so the tire is crooked. It rolls OK and works, but I will reject future shipments from anyone where there is obvious box damage. I... more

Absolutely Love This Little Tazz K32 Chipper/shredder
This little work horse has been a Godsend for my yard care. Shreds leaves into a fine usable instant mulch or as the brown layer in speedy composting pile with grass clippings.

The chipper end does a fine job of making 3 inch or smaller branches into about a 3/8 inch size chip mulch. Add the vacuum hose accessory and those hard to get to leaf accumulations disappear. Best yard machine I have bought in years. Love it.

Yes, the Harbor Freight chipper/shredder is a little less money,... more

Great Machine!
This is my first ever chipper/shredder and I love it. It's easy to assemble, starts easy and just keeps on running while I feed it the debris off my 2 acre lot. There's plenty of debris from pine tree branches, Scotch Broom brush, pine needles and oak leaves - the machine easily eats everything up to about the 3 inch limit.

Only slight issue is when needing to sharpen the blades you have to remove the whole blade/hammer housing. It's not difficult just awkward with about 8 bolts to undo and... more

Little Powerhouse!
Wish we'd had a chipper of this quality and size years ago. It is not overly loud, makes a beautiful mulch/compost and isn't overly large to store between uses. It does eat fuel, but we knew this before we bought it.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality

More Than Meets The Eye
Overall great machine and value with an outstanding warranty that beats even models at a higher price point.

Pros: powerful, surprisingly good on fuel, tolerable noise levels under load, well built, great warranty and value for the money.

Suggestions: balance, especially when starting, engine has lots of compression and torque, and starts on the first or second pull, but takes some strength and has enough resistance to jerk the machine a bit. Could benefit from a wider wheel stance.... more
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, Durable

It's Already Paid For Itself
I recently did a bunch of tree pruning and cutting down of sucker trees. Our local tree service wanted $600 to remove and chip all the debris. As such, I felt that the purchase of a good chipper would be a good investment. My new Tazz K32 made quick work of the entire pile.

Pros ... It's very easy to assemble. Just attach the kick stand, chipper cone, hopper handle, and the hopper guard on the hopper..

It is much easier to move from one place to another than I anticipated. ... more
