I have now also run bean plants and corn cobs through this and it chops everything up like a champ. I also use it for leaves and limbs which it handles with very positive results. I love this thing.
The shredded garden plants have cut my composting time by months. Compost heat up fast and tomato plants compost in weeks not months. This photo is of tomato plants after being shredded.
The unit was delivered in good condition but the box displayed some damage. Fortunately, it appears the packaging has been improved from the earlier reviews. Mine came encased with some kind of expando-foam and pine lumber to secure the piece inside the (damaged) box. I filled the motor with 10-30W synthetic oil (okay according to the manual). My heart nearly dropped at the thought of needing to exchange the unit after the first night's use when I checked it and saw approximately 1.5" oil slick underneath the motor. Fortunately, it appears to have stopped and is now no longer exhibiting any oil leaks.
Break-even point for me, compared to renting is around seven days worth of use. I'm halfway there already and should easily cross that mark before end of this year. However, for me, the best feature is not the $$ savings but the huge time savings compared to me manually cutting up the twigs and branches to try and fit it into the garden refuse container provided by my city.
In operation, the unit is noisy (or so says my housemates) but I really can't tell since I always use this with earplugs, full wrap around goggles, gloves and long-sleeve protection of some kind. It's scary at times to see how fast the unit sucks in a whole branch. I always use the bag, I don't seem to have an issue of the bag getting disconnected like other reviews have pointed out, maybe the catch mechanism was redesigned(?).
Performance-wise, this thing is a beast and eats nearly everything I throw into it within spec. Of course, as other reviewers have pointed out, there's some gotcha's: the max diameter is probably closer to 2.5", the branch has to be relatively straight for the chipper chute, the shredder is better fed with smaller batches, yada-da-da-da. Rather than go through more yada-da-da-da, watch the short video I've attached to see how the machine performs.
Some tips before I go. Don't let the bag get full. Letting the bag go full will cause the blades to jam resulting in lots of exercise getting the motor to start the next time until the jammed leaves and twigs are cleared from the blade area. Wearing some tight fitting long sleeves helps avoid getting scratches from (long) branches as they're pulled-in. Hook the bag under the catch and over the bolts, tighten two or three times to avoid having it blow off when the machine starts. To start, set to full-speed, choke, pull cord until and move quickly from choke to run (you can see this sequence in the video). If motor is slowing down due to getting overfed, wait a bit until it speeds up before feeding the next batch. That is all for now. Enjoy.
1. It is a marriage of a chipper and an engine made by different companies, and the supplier did not bother to provide instructions for the combined machine.
2. If you use this without the collector bag, the blast from the flywheel digs a hole in the ground and sprays ground material over an area of about a half acre. But, there is NO WAY TO SECURE THE COLLECTOR BAG TO THE MACHINE. I had to drill holes through the wall of the output chute and insert bolts to provide bag anchorage points.
3. The machine "walks" - the gyroscopic effect causes the machine to rotate around a vertical axis. I had to build custom chocks to keep the machine in place. THE SUPPLIER SHOULD HAVE PROVIDED CHOCKS.
4. If the machine clogs, it is virtually impossible to clear it out. The machine cannot be disassembled, so you have to resort to reaching through the exhaust chute and manipulating the flywheel by hand.
5. The start-cord pull force is such that it will tip the machine over, so you have to put a foot on the bracing leg to stabilize the machine, making starting the machine that much more difficult.
6. The vibration is so great that miscellaneous screws and bolts keep getting shaken loose.
7. The wheels are cheap plastic, and one broke while maneuvering the machine over soft ground, so I had to replace one wheel. The knuckleheads at the factory apparently heat-set the axle cap, so the only way to get the broken wheel off was with a hack saw.
8. Clearly, the manufacturer of this abortion has never had to use it.
9. Now, after less than a year of service, I cannot start the engine to save my life. I think something shook loose, but cannot tell what.
10. DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY THIS MACHINE.

Getting the oil in was a bit of a trick. The filler cap is located in an awkward spot. I ended up taking off the intake for branches (and it was still a bit awkward). After I was done, my wife said, "Why didn't you just roll up a piece of wax paper and use it as a funnel?" That would work much better.
The chipper starts easily, and eats up 2" branches with ease. Branches up to 3 inches need to be fed a more slowly to avoid bogging down the chipper.
The shredder intake works well too for leaves and twigs. I ended up throwing stuff into it - it tends to grab and pull hard. You don't want to be firmly holding the branch when it gets grabbed and sucked in. The is a black plastic guard inside the shredder that doesn't seem to do much - bits of wood get thrown high into the air from the shredder. Make sure to wear those goggles.
The bag works reasonably well. It doesn't seem like the bag and chipper were designed to go together - just a happy co-incidence that that bag fits. It's a bit tricky to get it on and keep it on. If it's not put over all the bolts and cinched tight, it tends to fly off. Nevertheless, I really like having a bag to grab all the mulch.
The chipper starts easily, and to turn it off, you close the fuel valve. I wish there was a way of stopping the engine quickly in case of an emergency. The chipper slows down and takes about 25-30 seconds to stop running.
Regardless, I really like the chipper. Does all I expected it to....
