From The Manufacturer
Lightweight Chipper/shredder Simplifies Home Cleanup
Featuring two convenient feed points and a hardened steel knife that easily feeds branches into eight hardened steel shredding hammers, Generac's 3" chipper/shredder provides a powerful option for your trimming and home landscaping needs. The unit is easy-to-move, as it weighs a mere 126 lbs. and features never-flat wheels. Best of all, you can re-purpose your branches as wood chips and mulch after they are pulverized by this formidable product from Generac.

Worst Product Ever
This chipper jammed first time I used it. I have not fixed it yet, I guess I will have to take it apart. What a bad purchase.
Cons: Low Quality, Heavy, Difficult To Use, Unreliable

So Far So Good
But beware that it is not so simple to put together. It's not that it isn't straightforward, it's just that the parts are heavy and the access is tight. It took me a while, as this is more than attaching a handle to a lawnmower. So set aside at least an hour or two for assembly.

A really short and quick try on this machine, it does what it is advertised to do, that is: chip wood. I think this will come in very handy as I prune my many fruit trees and shrubs. Instead of loading up piles of... more
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again

Great Product For The Money So Far
I bought this chipper/shredder and was a little nervous about it's capabilities.The assembly was straight forward and took about 2 hours. The chipper is awesome when working on tree limbs under 3 inches. The only negative comment is that the shredder bogs down when a small amount of small branches and leaves are inserted thru the hopper. Overall the build, quality and weight are excellent.
Pros: Price, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

Doing Great So Far
Trouble free ordering and delivery! Averitt Express driver was very helpful in unloading. Unpacked, set up, filled with oil/gas and started on second pull. Chipped a lot of material so far, 3" is pushing the envelope a bit, but below that eats it like butter. Looking forward to many years of use.
Pros: Durable, Quiet, Price, High Quality
Cons: Pushing with 3
