It Eats Trees
This was my 3rd chipper. The bag was a bust. One of the grommets broke (duck taped it back), the bag ripped in two spots (duck tape again), and the bag choked up the discharge so that the belt burned up on the second use of the chipper. Clean out was not easy until I used my blower to clean it out. About 3 hours of work.

I loved the way it swallowed the 2 to 3 inch diameter trees.

It is not easy (for me, an 83 year old) to push it around by hand. Much care has to be used when one gets it... more
Pros: Features, Fast, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy, Bad Instructions, Expensive

What A Machine
I looked and looked for a good c/s and saw all small, high priced units. Then I came across the Stanley c/s. Well when I got $130.00 knocked off for being a vet? I could not pass the sale. It is one strong machine, in quality and looks. It looks like a heavy duty monster.
It is very easy to use, starts wonderful with the electric starter, and if anyone buys this unit. The instructions are a must to read. ***** Do not put any big branches in to the top hopper. Well I did, jammed the blades up.... more
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Price, High Quality

Used It Immediately
It was simple to get ready: added oil as instructed, assembled chute and tongue as instructed, added gasoline, plugged starter in, set choke, and it cranked and started almost immediately.

Attached it to my lawn tractor and pulled it to where I had a bush that had been cut down and immediately began shredding. By the way, I am 71 years old so if it was easy for me it would most likely be easy for anyone.

The packaging was exceptional and delivery truck had a power lift and the driver... more

A Big Mistake
I bought this "top-of-the-line" product last April. I used it briefly just to make sure how to start it, engage the blades, etc. In November, barely 6 months later I had a pile of brush to deal with so I put it to the test. In less than 1 hour of use I had to remove the chute twice to unclog the cutting blades. Then the blades stopped cutting entirely. Many phone calls later I was directed to take it to a factory authorized serviceman. The verdict was that the belt had frayed and... more

Some Problems
Chipper came and works as expected. However, the towing bar does not tip the unit sufficient to avoid dragging the stand, causing it to rip the turf.

After a few hours of use, the brackets holding the belt cover fractured (two of the three) but I was guaranteed a replacement cover - which has not arrived yet.

As a final comment, the grommet holding the bag tore off during the first use. I don't think using the bag is a truly supported feature since it doesn't fill well either. In... more

Chips Ahoy!
We have been using the Stanley Chipper for about six months and are chipping quite a lot of small trees into compost (from twigs to up to three to four inches - don't over do it). The Stanley chipper does quite a good job once you learn its limitations and adjust the drive belt. The electric start is excellent. It uses quite a lot of gas but rarely needs oil added. It takes a long nose funnel to add oil. The machine is quite noisy, but that is to be expected. All in all it is good value... more
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Durability, The Belt Drive Can Be A Problem

Variable Screens And Sturdier Bag
My Stanley 15-HP is two years old now. Last summer, fuel started dripping out from under the motor. It was under warranty, but the warranty did not cover what was wrong with it. It seems debris got into the 'float valve'. It has been 'purrin' ever since. The collection bag is a joke. Should be twice as long and twice as thick.

The grommets ripped out the first two months' of use, and the 'cord tighter' that holds the bag to the machine came apart in two weeks. The threads holding... more

The Chipper Part Works Fine But-
See the trailer hitch? See the base behind the wheels? When you try to tow the chipper, the base acts like a cultivator, and digs a 1" ditch behind you. See the wheels? They are about 15' apart, and that is much to close together for this top-heavy machine. It will tip over on you when towing, for no good reason.
