Good shredder, reasonable chipper8/1/2013
This is basically the same model as the original McCullough shredder with one or two modifications. When blades are sharp, it will chip small branches but remember, it is NOT designed for the bigger branches. It jams much less frequently than the McCullough but when it does jam, it is a bit harder to remove the chute and clean it out. Relatively quiet and useful for anyone who wants to mulch small branches and leaves.
Like My Shredder7/29/2013
This product works as advertised. Good for small jobs. Assembly instructions were poor; no pictures or drawings on which part goes where and in what order. Eventually, the unit was assembled correctly, but it took several trials and errors. The unit works fine if the leaves and branches are fed in small quantities to prevent jamming. Overall, the product works as it is designed for.
Not for branches!3/29/2013
I was hoping that this was going to work for small branches. It is best for leaves. If the branches are bent at all it is almost impossible to push them through the chipper. Also, the design is just stupid for the collection of the chipped leaves or branches. There is no room to attach a trash bag as suggested in the instructions. Regret the purchase :(
This Does The Job10/9/2012
I have a large dump truck load of coarse wood mulch to grind to a finer consistency as I prepare to turn it, mixed with manure, into garden compost. I am very pleased with the outcome. If the blades hold up this will suit me fine. If a custom fitted burlap type bag to catch the product were available I would buy it as catching the mulch is a little inconvenient. A sack and a cam buckle strap will probably be all I need.
Not made for bit things and that was what I expected
performs as advertised6/12/2012
this unit does the job. my only compliant is that the wheels could be a little bigger to move more easily across the lawn.
A Very Nice Machine5/29/2012
For [$], this machine is quite a bit heartier than I expected it would be. I am most pleased with its performance. It made expedient work of a great big pile of branches and brush in my back yard. It's pretty easy to use, and the push tool it comes with quite contributes to the users sense of safety. Also, if taking it apart to unclog it becomes necessary, no tools are needed. The yellow knobs are tightened or loosened by hand. All in all, this was an excellent choice. I am most pleased.
It chops up thing in small chuncks, BUT it is very hard to get anything into the chipper. Unless the branch is straight it will not go through the side shute. If the branch has a bend in it it is almost impossible to get it into the chipper! The top looks like you could get a fair amount in but the opening is VERY small and you have to force it through. I would not buy this again!
Used it to clear up a 30 food cedar that was blown down in a storm. the chipper is heavy and feels solid but is also easy to wheel around and I got it into the trunk of my car without difficulties. the top cover comes off without tools when you need to declog or take out and sharpen things. It operates quietly (compared to gas driven) and zips through small branches and leaves with ease. I haven tried it on grass/lots of fall leaves yet but i expect it to work well enough considering you cant have a huge opening which you could accidentally your hand so I can live with safety first! For the occasional tree and year round yard cleanup this is perfect!
Good Buy for The Money4/9/2012
Quiet and easy to assemble. Top infeed is a bit small making leaves and small material very slow going. The rubber fee on the front legs will not stay on - Lost both by the second use. make sure you glue them on.
Woodchipper will make my life easier3/29/2012
strong 14 amp motor will make chipping branches easy.
This is a great deal. chipper is well built for the price. It is a bit on the slow side feeding it but for the price I can't complain.
Review of Duro Star Shredder3/26/2012
I expected a little more than what this is capable of. It shreds leaves, but you have to feed them in slowly or have to constantly push them in using the included stick. It doesn't shred very finely so you may have to re-run them thru if you want finely shredded leaves. It does small limbs ok, but my main reason for trying this was to mulch leaves for compost. It seems made ok, but it isn't high enough to slide a 5 gal bucket under the outlet. The rubber feet keep coming off when moved.
decent enough for the money.3/23/2012
Assembly directions were pretty bad, but once it was together, it works pretty much as advertised. Don't try anything larger than an inch, and if you plan to do a lot of leaf mulching, be prepared for it to take some time. Nice enough product for the money.
