Efficient, safe and simple to operate, this chipper/shredder has all the power to get the job done, and it's a pleasure to use. It quickly chops branches, twigs and fall leaves into small pieces. No messy gasoline and oil to deal with; just plug it in and it's ready to go. A slide-in box collects chips for easy transport. The fine chips are perfect for spreading around trees, shrubs and perennials to minimize weeds and conserve moisture. Or, add them to the compost pile.

Probably wouldn't buy this again.
Comments about : Earthwise Wood Chipper & Leaf Shredder:
It will work fine for very small jobs. The hopper is way too small to shred much in a reasonable amount of time. If you shredding tree branches then, as advertised, they must be relatively small and you will have to feed them into the hopper one at a time. So, as I said, this will be very time consuming if you have a lot to shred.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Permanently failed the second time I used it. If you have twigs or smaller curly branches, it won't chip them. The chipper clogs and you have to take it apart and unclog it. It jams very easily because it is under-powered. The electrical switch failed the second time I used it. It's in the garage waiting to go to the dump.

I would certainly buy this product again.

what I am specially grateful about is that it was very easy to assemble the Wood Chipper, even for me, a 68 year old woman. My sister and I used it immediately upon arrival to process my garden waste, including tree branches and leaves and debris. It worked wonderfully, and my garden path is now covered with my very own wood chips. Everybody visiting me is very impressed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

No. This is only a wood chipper not a leaf shredder.

Tried it as soon as I got it but feeder bucket is too small to hold many leaves and must push them through protective barrier so would take a long time to do a small amount of leaves
I would buy this again.

Yard cleanup - small limbs and growth too large to place directly in compost.

I used this for the first time to week. Chopped branches into small pieces. Great for mulch or to eventually compost. I will most likely run the Christmas tree branches thru the shredder for great smelling mulch. I have a hickory tree with large leaves. This does not work well for leaves, no draw into the hopper and using the pusher isn't worth the effort. On the plus side it shredded the hickory nuts and hulls without trouble.

Disappointed at how hard it is to get leaves in to it.
Very hard to get leaves through the holes to shred them.
Great little worker!

This little machine is the best i it's league. It's light weight, it's electric and does the job as well as a lot of gas machines that require a lot of arm strength to start.
