Allot of work for little results

Had high hopes for the machine but it has disappointed me. Very hard to feed anything into this machine. To chip up a pile of brush about 4 foot square and 3 foot high took 2 hours. Very difficult to put anything into the top. The opening are very small. I think it is a safety design that is so effective you can?t get anything into it easily. Feeding sticks into is hard as well. Unless the stick is straight not very easy. Lastly the mulch is not fine and very useful. It is smaller.

EcoShredder is Poorly Constructed

I just bought this a couple days ago. Within the first few mintues of use, the V-cutter blade broke (see pic), also destroying the chipper blades in the process. In addition, the housing around the electrical components is falling away from the top (see pic). When I saw this my first thought was, "is this cheap junk built in China?", and of course I found the "Made in China" label on the side...

I can buy new blade sets and try operation again, but I can't do anything about the electrical housing bending and warping away, exposing the electrical components. I had my old EcoShredder for 10+ plus years before it finally died. I am so disappointed with this new reduction in quality from DuroStar and MaxTool.

Great for creating compost

Works very well for heavily treed suburban lot, branches, leaves and grass to create compost. Very satisfied


Assembled the shredder and put to use immediately. I have an urban lot with a lot of bush trimmings and leaves. Worked very well and quickly. Two jams were easy to clear. Compact and easy to store.


This chipper eats up trimmings from bushs and yard waste surprisingly well. It is a powerful 2.5hp Piranha. The small openings allow a measured feed which works to move leaves through without overloading the motor. I am very pleased with my purchase.
