Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great chipper! Well built and easy to assemble. Chips what it says it will chip. The bag makes it easy to distribute to the desired location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than my old chipper I bought this machine to replace an old Craftsman chipper for which I could no longer purchase parts. Assembly went smoothly (about 30 minutes), but one wheel bearing would not fit on the shaft. Clearly defective in manufacture. My local TSC quickly resolved that issue. It's a surprisingly powerful, effective and easy to use chipper. It has a slightly less powerful engine than my old Craftsman, but it performs better. I think that's due to the difference in how the blades are engineered in the Dirty Hands machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pay attention to detail As a low cost pull behind chipper shreader it does the job. After a short day the wheels came off and I found out that the wheel bearings that were pressed fit were not properly pressed in. After fixing that never had another issue with it. Suggest you check all bolts efore operating. Found several loose ones. It does not do that well with green wood and it limits it to about one inch. Seasoned or dead branches it does fine. The oil fill tube is on both sides of the motor which is a good thing because one of them is useless. Getting oil into the machine required a funnel with a tube to get oil into it. The bag is nice however the zipper broke after abbout 15 minutes of operation. Starting the engine you need to know that you need to get it turning fast enough to start but it will start after three to four quick pulls. When connected to a garden tractor you need to disconnect otherrwise it is a little awkward operating. Overall it is worth the money and be sure to read the directions

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far, So Good Only about 6 hours on this unit, so hard to give a good review yet. Ask me again in a year. Engine starts first pull every time. Chipper seems to handle 3" oak and pine just fine, just make sure the branches aren't too long or it will bog down to almost stalling. Shredder isn't too bad. I do wish the quad tongue was 12" longer, it's way too short at least for my quad; I'll need to modify it to make it work. Also, the front stand has 2 pins and 2 bolts, so not sure if it can be quick removed without tools for quad towing.

When attempting to start it for the first time, I'm unable to pull the recoil handle more than 2 or 3 inches.  If I apply any more force, I'm afraid I'll damage the unit. I've reviewed the manual and there's nothing in there about the recoil handle.

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.
