DuroStar (1.375") Electric EcoShredder Chipper
If you are interested in the best bang for the buck model on this list, the DuroStar Home & Garden Outdoor Electric 3-Way Leaf EcoShredder/Chipper/Mulcher is the one to see. Although costing more than the top rated chipper, it mulches down leaves in a 10 bags to 1 ratio, just like the expensive Patriot unit. This chipper/shredder also offers big power with its 14 amp 2.5 horsepower motor, so it’s going to make short shrift of any yard work.
This model chips up to a 1 3/8ths inch diameter branches or small tree limbs, and the 3-way feed allows you to effectively feed in branches or brush in the port that best fits. It comes with a set of replacement blades, 7 inch wheels to make its 71 pound weight reasonably portable, and it has a one year warranty. Although this model chipper/shredder may be difficult to locate, you should be good to go on all chipping, shredding and mulching chores.
