Chippers Direct Recommended

This unit gets our "Best" rating because it has all of the features of our "Better" pick, and more.

It can handle branches up to 4 inches thick. two inches may not seem like a lot, but try breaking a 2" branch over your knee. Then try breaking a 4" branch- you'll be lucky not to break your knee, instead.

The engine is larger, and comes with pneumatic tires which helps while towing with an ATV or tractor. Plus it comes with a chip collection bag, wrench, spare... more

Strong Performance, Minor Defects.
I've only ran this machine a couple hours, but I expect many years of dependable service out of this machine. This is my assemble and initial performance review:

Pros:
1) 300lb sturdy shipping crate with wood pallet arrived in good shape.
2) I shoveled 4" to 6" chunks of Oak bark and small chunks of Oak wood into the hopper left over from my firewood splitting and it shredded it into a fine mulch without slowing the motor down but just a bit.
3) The chipper ate a 3"... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Durable, I'd Buy It Again

Dead Hackberry Trees
Looked at first it would do the job. Then problems started. The unit has major bolt and nut problems. Nuts came off on the the bearing blocks holding the main shaft. Before I could shut the unit down the roll pin on one of the hammer shafts came out and dropping a hammer blade into the mix which was very bad news. Also burned up the drive belt. Then problems with the nuts on the blade bolts. They're a poor grade, threads strip out on them (Made in China is my guess). There parts list online is... more

Impressed
I have lots of trees and bushes on my property and it has become more difficult to find the space and time to burn it. So I purchased this chipper, filled with oil and gas. It started right up and made a small pile of mulch out of a very large pile of cuttings, limbs, trees, branches and brush. It was easy to use and I was very impressed. Can't wait to do some more pruning this fall just so I can use this chipper again.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Store

This Machine Is Great
I had a Toro and it was not worth the money. Within less then two years it burned out went on fire and the company stated it was not used properly. This was a real bull story. This machine is powerful and easy to use. No worries. If you are in need of a cheaper buy this one.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Durability

A Chipper/shredder Worth Buying
I was looking for a chipper shredder, and every thing I looked at was junk, cheap, big bucks, and low power, then I saw this Stanley machine, and 15 hp, wow. I had a 8 hp c/s a Bolens, it was ok. More power would of been better. I bought the Stanley unit, and let me say.... Now I have a great machine. Thank you Stanley.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, High Quality

I have used this chipper to clear a lot of small trees and bushes and have not had any trouble out of the machine. It runs a lot more quiet than I expected. Have recommended this to several of my friends.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Quiet, Reliable

Dead Hack Berry Trees
Lack of rain over the last 6 years killed around 30 trees on my place. Some were 50 feet tall. The DEK looks like it will do the job as we are still without rain so no burning. South and Central Texas is under a burn ban. Very dry conditions and no outside burning.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight, Fast
Cons: No Hard Copy On Service And Parts

So Far Not Pleased
The buying experience of this product from Power Equipment Direct was great as they kept me apprised of the purchase and shipment process. The first use of this chipper, it plugged and melted the belt. We changed belts and by the time we had 15hrs of use, the clutch assmbly needed to to replaced as the pulley sheared off leaving it, requiring a new clutch assembly of $115.00.
Cons: Unreliable, Durability, After 15 Hrs Of Use We Just Ordered A New Clutch Assembly And New

Dek 4" Chipper Shredder
In Jan. 2013 I bought a Troy Bilt 3" chipper shredder. It failed in 3 weeks. It lost power and quit and wouldn't restart when it warmed up. Probably due to bad spark. Took it back and exchanged it. The second one blew another Briggs engine. Took it back and got a refund. Would never buy another Briggs engine product.
Bought the DEK and have used it quite happily for a month now. It starts easily and will handle anything that will go in the chute. The big hopper is large and is a straight... more

Blade Life
We got this chipper thinking it would do what we needed. Wrong! Here in Florida we have lots of Palm trees and it just does not work on them. It will just plug the screen. On the Oak branches the blade dulls after about an hour and major job to change. Also had the belt guard break a couple of times and the main shaft bearing burn out.

Dek Chipper
Unit runs and works fine but should have an idler pulley for engaging belt drive. Reason being, if the shredder or chipper tube is loaded and you run out of fuel the unit is jammed.
Otherwise works well.
