Dirty Hand Tools 3 in. Chipper/Shredder with Kohler Engine is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid machine After researching for a month I decided to take a chance on this cheaper less powerful model. Glad I did. Have used for 4 days straight all day and have had no problems except for the discharge chute occasionally getting clogged. This only occurred when I fed larger green pine or aspen too fast and is easily remedied by using a stick to unclog the rather small discharge chute. Definitely will chip up to 3 inches if fed slowly and is very efficient with 2 inch wood. The hopper works great for big bundles of smaller, shorter branches up to an inch or more as you can stuff them all in together and push them down gradually rather than having to feed them into the chute individually. Just be sure to wear safety glasses and stand to the side as a lot of chips fly out when using the hopper. As a few people mentioned, the oil fill is impossible to get to without taking the machine apart but the oil level check on the other side is accessible so I just filled through it. Started with 1 to 2 pulls every time, although it takes a pretty good amount of strength to pull it, so if that’s an issue for someone a model with an electric start might be the way to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good deal for the money, but don't huge results Bought this to finally get rid of a bunch of crepe myrtle trimming. Ran for 6 hours with the occasional break and it kept humming. Chews 1" branches and smaller like they are nothing, but once you get any bigger you will have to go slow. Slow meaning you will be feeding only a inch or two at a time. I think the biggest branch I had was approximately 2-2.5 inches. I can't speak for the hoppernasni have not used it. Overall good machine for the money. Well built with 10 gauge steel and welds, also comes with a hitch. One down fall on the build, the oil fill is blocked by the chute so you will have to take it off evertime you need to service and check it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from really great product Hard working machine. Does everything I need it to. Starts on first pull every time. Only issue is finding replacement chipper blades. Operators manual says go to manufactures website but can't locate them there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This should not be left outside. This machine basically has a giant funnel on top of it. I don't understand why anyone would think it is OK to leave outside in the rain or beside the front doors of a store. It apparently made a good trash can for somebody as they walked into the TSC. When I first tried to start it water gushed out the discharge chute. Water was even dripping out of the air filter to the engine. Zipper was dryrotted and failed on second use. Beware if you plan on purchasing one of these that has been sitting outside.

Would it be possible to attach a hose to the discharge flange to direct the discharge across a targeted area. Looking for an efficient method to spread cypress mulch. Does the discharge have sufficient pressure to push material thru a 6 to 10 ft length?

Asked by: JosephB
Hello JosephB while it is possible that a hose could be attached to this model, there is no kit for that, and discharging the mulch from a hose is currently not a rated application for this Chipper/Shredder.

How easy does this start?? I am disabled and can't pull like I used to.

Asked by: Medic954
Hello, The chipper is relatively easy to pull. If a standard lawn mower were a 5 out of 10 then this is about a 7 out of 10. Hope that helps. -DHT
