I have had for 1 season and so far, very happy. Easy to assemble and get ready to use. Chipper produces very nice chips. I will be changing my trimming style – no big Ys as they do not fit into the chipper, but if it fits, it eats it nicely. Shredder is very powerful. Will rip things out of your hand, so do not place things in – throw them in. Longer, greener sticks that are bendy will get jammed since they just wrap around the hammers. Clutch worked perfect, no damage to the unit at all, fairly easy to unclog. Agree with other reviews that having a smaller “screen” would be nice for certain brush to get it chopped more. Plenty of power in the motor, electric start is nicer than I thought it would be and worth the money. Considering how heavy it is, it is very well balanced and moves very easily by hand on smooth, flat ground (moving about in the shed, etc.).
