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
I like it because I am not sore after the next day from raking. It take 3-4 passes over an area to get about 2/3 of the leaves, but it does work. If you want a perfect yard with no levaes left on the ground you may be a little frustrated because it won't pick up all the leaves. But I think it does save time and it is a lot easier than raking. I got three pick up loads from this unit in about 2 hours.
