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

Broken Before Even Used It
This product was dropped in the middle of my driveway from carrier. Over 130lb box. Had to sit there for 2 days, as i could not move it. Upon opening it in i found parts bent in. This caused machine to not piece together properly. Instructions do not show pieces that go together easily. Parts can not be identified by instructions.
Very disappointed. Not sure whos to blame. Delivery company or manufacturer.
Pros: none
Cons: Packaging, Heavy, Low Quality, Bad Instructions

Very Nice Machine
Does what it's supposed to, and well. Huuge for nowadays! The Viper engine has more than enough power to just suck in (3") sticks into the chipper. It runs smooth and starts easily hot or cold. The chipper is very efficient as long as the stick is straight enough to feed. Haven't tried the shredder with just leaves - shredding small springy branches with leaves is a bit difficult - they're hard to feed. The bagger is well designed and very convenient. It will let very fine dust... more

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

Amazing
Don't usually write reviews but had to for this product. Bought this to clean up a large brush pile of maple and oak branches accumulated on my 1 acre property over about 8 years. It was a large pile...lol. Overall options for vacuum and ability to handle up to 3" branches were key selling points for future uses during fall cleanup etc. Assembled easy. Put it to work and I can not be happier with performance.

Started first crank, runs like a champ and eats everything up to... more

Good Product For Home Use
Shredder was slightly damaged in shipment/delivery. I was able to straighten enough to assemble. Easy to start. This product is good for shredding soft wood less than three inches in diameter. It is excellent with smaller diameter soft wood.

Chipper performance met my expectations. During assembly one part was missing, still need to resolve with supplier, have another concern about stud length and use of elastic stop nuts.

Pros And Cons
Pros - Solidly built. Easily assembled. Very fine chop of leaves.

Cons - Heavy duty rubber/vinyl(?) flaps meant to be a hand guard totally impedes leaves from passing through hopper. Had to remove guard entirely to be able to load leaves more than a small handful at a time. Even without the hand-guard mentioned above, hopper has to be fed with relatively small (basketball-sized) handfuls, Without vacuum hose attachment, feeding leaves to the machine requires constant bending.

Started First Pull, Chips & Shreds Llike A Demon
The Tazz chipper shredder works better than any other inexpensive chipper I've used in the past. Actually getting to the "use" phase of ownership, however, was not smooth . . . and I am not a novice handyman.


To begin with, I discovered while unpacking the Tazz that each edge of the hopper mounting flange was seriously bent out of shape. This resulted from poor cushioning of that part, as there was no damage at all to the shipping carton or to any other part. It took awhile,... more

"The web site was easy to use, and their price was highly competitive, so choosing to buy from Chippers Direct was a no-brainer. Actually making the purchase on the web site was a simple process, and they shipped it quick. Updates and tracking kept me informed of the shipment status and expected arrival date (which was accurate). I've already told my brother and my oldest son about this chipper shredder and where I got it."

Great Product!
The unit arrived on a Thursday with a bent axle and one wheel would not rotate freely so I called PED immediately, at their direction sent them a photo via email, called them again to ensure they had received my email with photo, and was told they would follow up with me soon. Received an email the following Tuesday requesting the unit’s serial number, was told the part would be ordered and it arrived about ten days after delivery of the unit, so I lost the first two weekends I expected to be... more
