Chipper Shredder Vacuum Buyer's Guide

How to Pick the Perfect Chipper Vac

By  | Chipper Product Expert

You've worked hard to maintain a nice yard. Keeping it that way can be a real pain in the back.

If you don't rake up the leaves, sticks and other yard debris, your grass might smother and die.

You could use a lawn vacuum to clean up the leaves, and then drag out a chipper-shredder to clean up the branches and sticks.

Or, you can get both jobs done quickly and easily at the same time. Just suck everything up in one fell swoop with a chipper-shredder vacuum.

These units turn yard debris into valuable mulch that can go into your compost bin or right onto your landscaping.

Choosing the right machine is simple, based on which features best suit your yard:

Self Propelled
If you're tired of raking your yard, a self-propelled chipper-shredder vacuum will remove leaves, sticks, acorns, and doggy landmines with minimal effort.

Just guide it across your lawn. Spring cleanup, summer maintenance, and fall mulching will be faster and easier because the unit is doing most of the work.

Detachable Vacuum HoseChipper Shredder Vacuum Hose
Getting leaves out of your landscaping areas can turn into a frustrating game of hide and seek.

A unit with a hose attachment makes it easy to vacuum up leaves around flower beds and shrubs.

The hose attachment also lets you quickly convert large piles of leaves into compact mounds of mulch.

Feed Chute For BranchesChipper Vac Feed Chute
Some lawns will accumulate lots of twigs and small branches throughout the year. A chipper-shredder vacuum with a feed chute can handle sticks up to 2.5" in diameter, turning them into useful mulch.

You won't have to worry about raking up the chips; they are neatly collected in the attached bag along with whatever else the vacuum has shredded.
