It might have shredded leaves ok.

Obviously the engineers who designed this did not graduate at the top of their class.

I bought one of these to deal with a large amount of brush at a house I bought in August of 2006. After about 2 weeks work, this chipper literally came apart.

Who I bought it from isn't at issue here, but, I took it back and they gave me a new one.

I used it maybe twice and then fall and winter set in and I didn't use it again until this spring (2007). The same issue arose. The problem is with its engineering. The machine uses blades that are attached by roll pins to do the chipping. The roll pins are kept in place with steel clamps that are probably inserted mechanically at the factory.

If debris, which is inevitable--it is, after all, a chipper--hits the side of the clamp, the clamp comes loose and flys off. These clamps usually fly into the discharge chute with no problem.

Then the real issue begins. Without the clamp, the roll pin that keeps the blade in place is spun out of its hole by the centripetal force. Once the pin has come loose, the blade comes loose, and it jams/destroys the entire chipping mechanism. Luckily, we caught this flaw on the "second machine" (the first machine self-destructed, but I was lucky and it did so before the warranty expired).

This is obviously an engineering flaw in the design--otherwise the clamps would not be needed in the first place. And who would design a cutter that used a roll pin in a situation that would immediately indicate the roll pin would be subjected to centrepidal forces, and thereby pushed out of its position of securing the blades.

Obviously the engineers who designed this did not graduate at the top of their class. I'm surprised they passed engineering school exams to begin with.

This piece of equipment has soured me on Troy-Bilt equipment entirely.

We bought a Troy Bilt chipper from a local dealer. It was advertised as "heavy duty" on the Troy Bilt site, "chips 3 inch limbs". We thought Troy Bilt was an established, reliable brand. Took it home, and it wouldn't even chip privet hedge clippings! Took it back, the dealer kept it a week (a small local hardware store) and the old man said he couldn't find anything wrong with it ("the engine runs fine") The engine does run fine - it just won't chip anything! MTD (the company that now owns Troy Bilt and has bought up several other brands) told us to take it to another local dealer. We did. They kept it almost a week, called to tell us it was 'fixed'. We got there and were told the blades were dull, the steel wasn't good quality and we might want to get aftermarket blades of better quality, but they'd sharpened them anyway (without asking us or suggesting we replace them with better blades) then demanded $65 for labor because the blades aren't covered under warranty. Of course, this chipper had been used all of one hour! Needless to say, we're outraged. MTD refuses to cooperate. We're filing a complaint with the Attorney Generals consumer office and maybe taking the dealer to small claims court(as local agent for the company) under the UDAP law (unfair and deceptive acts and practices act).
This chipper is worthless - definitely not heavy duty - barely even light duty since it couldn't handle 3/4 inch privet. It might have shredded leaves ok. Don't buy it, and for that matter, I'd stay away from anything made by MTD (they own many brands of lawn machines now) - their customer service is rude and not there to help you.

This machine has a use.....unfortunately, it is not what it is advertised for. I got mine "nearly new" on Craigslist. I knew exactly what to expect....I have dozens of large gas powered tools...tractors, trenchers, 10 chain saws, splitters, sawmill, on and on. We know tools and machinery.
I wanted something to reduce garden waste to "chop" so that the chickens/pigs/ducks would scratch it down to compost faster. Corn stalks, corn shucks and cobs, Tomato plants, broccoli stalks, all the residue from 2 acres of organic garden. This machine is perfect for that.

We took out the chopper blade and sharpened it razor sharp, then polished all the surfaces on a flap sander. We pressure washed the blade/flail chopper and put a spray on black chain oil on the flail pivots. We also razor sharpened the chipper blades.

We harvested a 75'x75' plot of corn. The ears were shucked for cutting and freezing. It took 2 kids about 2 hours to run all the cobs.....all the shucks....all the stalks through the chipper green. If you want dry shredded bedding material, you will need to let everything sun-dry for a week. This was green chop that had enough corn grains in it to keep 75 chickens interested for 3 days. The stalks were run through the hopper and the chipper chute with equal success. THIS EFFORT WAS A RESOUNDING SUCCESS, AND REPRESENTS THE LIMIT OF WHAT THIS MACHINE WILL SAFELY AND EFFICIENTLY PERFORM. This is no more a "CHIPPER" than a car-window burger is "food". If you want to "chip" any sort of woody material, you need 17+hp and a lot more iron and mass. This is light stamped metal, and it shudders on a load of corn shucks and cobs. I will write a second review in the fall as we run the bedding material through it. About 30-50 pickup loads of leaves should get a measure of its value.
