Q: Hi Bob, There are 4 Tazz models. Though they have different engine makers/cc's, there isn't much difference between them if you look at the power (torque) or cutting (number of hammers/knives).
Is there any real difference between them that I'm not getting? Thanks.

by Michael from California on July 05, 2016

A:

Model 22752 - K33 is the only Tazz model that may be shipped to California. The chipper/shredders are the same. Only the engine make and size differ.

The Tazz K32 chipper shredder offers surprisingly effective performance in a compact package. The 25-1/2" x 30" inch footprint will take up minimal space in your garage or storage shed.

The Tazz K32 is powered by an easy-starting and powerful Viper® 212cc engine, which gives this unit enough power to chip branches up to 3” in diameter. The rugged steel hopper stands at only 34” high, so yard waste can be dropped in with minimal effort while larger branches can be fed into the... more

Love The Tazz
Great piece of machinery. Well designed, well crafted, and easy assembly. Only complaint is the vacuum as the leaves got stuck in the pipe often. As for the chipper though - fantastic. We must have run the Tazz for at least 10 hours the first couple of days and not a problem.

It made awesome mulch for the garden! The mulch got better with the second run though but you do need to feed it slowly through the hopper or it gets clogged. Regardless though, we are very happy with it. Fed... more

Chipper Died Out After 10 Months
I am used to working on motors. This chipper died out completely after 10 months of use. It was a heavy investment. I would not recommend this chipper at all. I went through all the trouble shooting specs and everything... still can't get it started. I'm looking at a hefty repair bill to get it running again.
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable

Sean,
I apologize for the issues that you've experienced with your Viper Chipper/Shredder after such a short duration. Fortunately, your unit comes with a 5 year manufacturer's warranty. The best thing to do would be to call Tazz directly at (800) 345-6007 so that they can assist you with any repairs or replacements that need to be made. If you are having difficulty getting ahold of Tazz, please do not hesitate to give us a call and we will do our best to connect you with them ourselves. We appreciate your business and hope that you will give us another shot in the future when you are ready for your next piece of power equipment. Thanks again and I hope you have a great rest of the summer.

Very Nice Machine
Does what it's supposed to, and well. Huuge for nowadays! The Viper engine has more than enough power to just suck in (3") sticks into the chipper. It runs smooth and starts easily hot or cold. The chipper is very efficient as long as the stick is straight enough to feed. Haven't tried the shredder with just leaves - shredding small springy branches with leaves is a bit difficult - they're hard to feed. The bagger is well designed and very convenient. It will let very fine dust... more

Fed Ex Bends Axle On Delivery
I heard some noise out front while in my home office. I was expecting the delivery from your company via Fed Ex. The doorbell was not rung and by the time I got outside I observed the Fed Ex man putting the Tazz partially back in its box. He quickly left and I was confused as to why he didn't ring the doorbell. I thought nothing of it until I assembled the machine and the axle was extremely bent.

It appears that he threw it off the truck in order to do that much damage. So much that it... more

Excellent Product!
The only negative is the location of the oil fill. Even with a flex-tube, nearly impossible to fill up with oil once fully assembled. Best to put oil in before assembly. Other than that, cranked up first pull, and runs really well. Chews up pretty substantial branches, and the bag is EXTREMELY USEFULL for capturing the mulch. Overall, would strongly recommend.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, Durable
Cons: Location of Oil Fill

Worth Every Penny
Very happy with the choice I made. Went together easily no missing parts, I had to straighten the one edge of the leaf shute it was bent flat up against the hood, but only took a couple of minutes to fix. Started on the first pull, I like the way the mulch bag is designed, as it fills up it supports its own weight, like the bag zipper at the back. Whoever named this the "Viper" was spot on!
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Store

Started First Pull, Chips & Shreds Llike A Demon
The Tazz chipper shredder works better than any other inexpensive chipper I've used in the past. Actually getting to the "use" phase of ownership, however, was not smooth . . . and I am not a novice handyman.


To begin with, I discovered while unpacking the Tazz that each edge of the hopper mounting flange was seriously bent out of shape. This resulted from poor cushioning of that part, as there was no damage at all to the shipping carton or to any other part. It took awhile,... more

"The web site was easy to use, and their price was highly competitive, so choosing to buy from Chippers Direct was a no-brainer. Actually making the purchase on the web site was a simple process, and they shipped it quick. Updates and tracking kept me informed of the shipment status and expected arrival date (which was accurate). I've already told my brother and my oldest son about this chipper shredder and where I got it."

Great Product!
The unit arrived on a Thursday with a bent axle and one wheel would not rotate freely so I called PED immediately, at their direction sent them a photo via email, called them again to ensure they had received my email with photo, and was told they would follow up with me soon. Received an email the following Tuesday requesting the unit’s serial number, was told the part would be ordered and it arrived about ten days after delivery of the unit, so I lost the first two weekends I expected to be... more

Just as reviewed--strong, smooth-running engine, started on first pull! Taxes the machine's capabilities when limb size approaches the 3" limit, but really chews up anything less. We're very pleased--one of those wonderful "why didn't I do this sooner?" purchases.

Just What We Needed
Wasn't hard to put it together at all. Does an excellent job, on what we have to shred. I can make mulch in no time and not hard to use at all.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, High Quality
Cons: Bigger lettering required to see instructions, can't wait to get the vacuum for it.
