Works well to reduce garden waste.
I've only used this chipper twice, as I received it only a few days ago. Kept getting reminders from overstock to write a review so here's what I noticed so far. It worked well to chop up hedge trimmings and a few sticks up to about 1/2 inch in diameter. I like that it really reduces a lot of garden waste that would otherwise take up a lot of room. The hopper where you feed material into the chipper is pretty small so it's a bit of a struggle to feed stuff in.
Best labor saving device I have ever purchased
The dethatcher worked like a charm on my .75 acre back yard of bermuda grass that had not been dethatched in over two years. The motor had no difficulty in thinning even the most thick, overgrown areas. It pushes very easily (the tines almost propel it by itself) and is simple to operate. Even after mowing the grass as low as possible, the Greenworks dethatcher allowed me to remove over 25 bags of debris from the grass, leaving a much healthier appearing lawn. In the end, this device saved me hours and hours of back-breaking effort with a rake.
Good but not without limitations
I put this unit through its paces after it was delivered promptly. Pros: Simple, easy assembly. All you really have to do is attach the wheels and stand. Unit is relatively quiet considering the power of the electric motor As advertised, it will chip branches up to 1.5" Item is not that heavy and can be moved around without much difficulty Cons: Feed tube is not that big Does not work well on gnarled branches - this is really designed for straight tree limbs Be careful to not feed overly knotty wood into this machine as it can jam it
