This item ships freight. Need a liftgate? Details.

Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.

Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

For the price, an excellent buy.
I purchased this item to convert several brush piles into useable material for the yard and garden. I waited until I had used both the chipper and shredder modes to write this.

After uncrating the unit, it took a little time to determine where the two nuts that were loose in the crate belonged. But, once I figured out they were the nuts to attach the chipper hopper, no other problems with assembly.

First use - chipper. The amount of force required to start is significant. But, it's a new engine and has a lot of compression. It also led to my first problem - the handle came off the pull start rope. This was pretty easily fixed by adding a washer between the knot and the handle. After quite a few branches, I noticed that several of the rubber flaps that are supposed to prevent chips from blowing back had come off. I would call the chips it produces, coarse sawdust. But, again, it did very well.

Second use - shredder. Engine seemed to start easier, or maybe I was just used to it. The shredder was noisier when doing limbs and branches than the chipper. But you couldn't hear it over the motor when doing yard waste. I tried to find just about every type material that I might be using it for, limbs and branches, reeds, flower plants, vines, leaves, etc. It let you know when you were approaching the limit on the size of branches, but it did the job. I found that I needed to keep a stick handy when doing the lighter stuff. It would hang up in the chute and needed to be coaxed into the shredder. No problem, just a learning experience.

All in all, I'm quite happy with the purchase. The collector bag is virtually useless unless you're doing a very small load. The Owner's manual leaves a lot to be desired. It would benefit from more and clearly labeled graphics.

It will be a while before I can comment on durability and ease of maintenance. But, it seems solidly built and I expect it to do well.

I have huge qty's of pine needles. First how well will this shredder do with those? Secondly there could be somw small gravel mixed in with the pine needles. Is that a problem and if so why? Lastly does shredable material need to be cleaned of any gravel etc. that may be in it before shredding?

Thank You

BEST ANSWER: I have a 15 hp unit and definitely would not add any thing with rocks, at the very least it will beat up your flails and discharge screen. Also add pine straw very slowly as too much at one time will definitely clog discharge chute.
Does this machine have enough wind power to blow the chips through a shoot if it was added into a barrel or cart.
