Patriot Products CSV-2515 Electric Wood Chipper Leaf Shredder
If price is no object, then the Patriot 1.5-HP Electric Chipper Shredder is for you. It is far and away the most expensive chipper/shredder on this list, but it will handle branches up to 2 1/2 inches in diameter, and not break a sweat. This baby will mulch leaves down from 8 bags to 1 bag and it also features one of the largest hoppers at 7 inches in diameter. This chipper/shredder comes with a branch hopper, a leave and twig hopper on the top, includes a collection bag, and comes covered by a two year warranty.
At 95 pounds it’s the heaviest unit on the list, but the oversize 7 inch wheels make it fairly portable around your property, as long as you don't exceed the 100 foot cord length. If this unit wasn't almost 6 times the price of the GreenWorks chipper, it would have made it to the top of the list. No one will question how good this unit is, and with a 14 amp 1.5 horsepower motor, it will get the job done. But you'll pay for this power, and for probably 90 percent of all suburbanite chipping jobs, you'll never fully use it.
