Looked at it after putting it together and thought it might not do a good job on a pile of branches I had. Hole looked small, but you can fit quite a lot of twigs and branches in it. Only got jammed once, and clearing it is very quick and easy. Didn't get a lot of debris around worksite either. Would recommend.
Bought this chipper shredder to do some chipping at my house of a pile of small brush as well as a larger pile at my mothers house, The product had a small learning curve as to what will it handle and what will get stuck but the product performed admirably and I would recommend as well as buy another.

This is listed as a chipper/shredder. It would be a great chipper for the homeowner as it seems powerful and the blades are metal, however the feed slot is narrow to prevent larger pieces of wood from being fed into it. That's a good thing, but as far as shredding goes it would be impossible to shred leaves with it because of the width and pressure needed to push into the feed area. If it had a hopper accessory for leaves it would be a GREAT product. If you just need to chip brush I'd go with this unit but if you need to shred leaves this is not the product for you. It should be labeled as a chipper only.

While I've jammed it a few times, and it's overheated once, I am very pleased with my purchase. It does amazingly well breaking down straight branches; ones with leaves, twigs and/or knots take quite a bit of finesse. Also, I get a sense of satisfaction from watching branches disappearing down its gullet, being expelled as chips, leaving an ever shrinking pile of wood. In fact, once my yard's clear, I plan on offering up my service to the neighbors.
I had a hard time finding a small chipper. This does a good job at a decent price. Although the description says that it can take branches up to 1.5 inches in diameter, I found if I got over an inch it would jam. You could get some of the bigger branches through, but it took a lot of turning off and on and wiggling the branch. An inch and under went through easily. This did serve my purpose though.
First time I used it was to clean up yard from tree prunning. Will only take limbs of 1 inch or less but does a great job on these. I filled a garbage bag with its chips in a couple of hours so I have my mulch for the next time I need it.
