    this looks to be a very well made item, and its built to last, or so it seems. My biggest problem is with the engine oil dip stick, as I always check the oils level of all my power equipment before use. this is a major design flaw their is not way in hell to check or fill without removing the chipper shoot from this. If you in fact design and built all your equipment their. You need to fire the designer on this one.
    Just put it together and I hope it works better than this flaw in workmanship !!!

    • Hi John-

      Thanks for writing! Please take a look on the other side of the engine. The chipper/shredder engines have dual dipsticks. Thanks again – let us know if you have additional questions. Best, DHT Team

    This is one tough machine. Unlike the previous review, I “looked” all around my machine to familiarize my self with it. Oil ports on both sides. I used a long flexible funnel with no problem. This machine is a monster. Branches nearly as wide as the shoot were eaten alive. The top shredder is unbelievable. If you load it with to much mulch you will stop the air flow and will need to clear it carefully. I had a 30x30x5 area of brush to clear from my pruned tree, and did it in 3 hours. GREAT MACHINE

    Works great….does exactly what it supposed to.

    I have a couple of acres of cedar and scrub to clear, and this machine is perfect for the job. I compared it to a machine priced $300 more and am extremely satisfied with performance. If the branch fits in the chute, this machine will turn it into a pile of wood chips in seconds. I had no problem locating oil dipsticks on both left and right sides of the engine.

    I got this unit after comparing several different Chipper Shredders. The Easy answer is that IT WORKS! Chips branches as advertised and as long as you do not try to feed it material that is too large, the engine runs strong. The shredder hopper makes quick work of leaves and small twigs. If you are on the fence, this machine does what it says it will do hands down. My only complaint so far is that the draw bar is too short. Yes you can tow it with a riding mower but don’t plan on making much of a turn. Then you have to unhook it to really use it. I hope DHT offers a longer bar soon!

    The machine is well made, it has eaten everything I have thrown at it. The only flaw is the bag, the draw string doesnt keep it firmly attached and the bags zipper has come apart three times while grinding. Other than that I do reccomend it, am glad I choose it.

    This chipper exceeded my expectations. I own a landscaping business and i bought this chipper for light duty, mostly to condense my dump pile at home. We ended up using the chipper to help on a job sub contracting for an arborist for 2 days. Long story short we chipped 4000 lbs of pine tree branches ( 2 full size truck loads) branches 1-3 inches and the chipper took everything we could feed it. Yes, its a pain to assemble.. But it is a real hard working piece of equipment. I most definitely want to try more DHT products!

    Works very well on branches up to 2.5 inches. Makes quick work of limbs. Very noisy. Starts first pull. Leave chute cover loose or it will break.

    An amazing machine, and the help and support from the Dirty Hands team has been second to none. I used it to chip downed branches and tree trimmings and it kept running and chipped branches almost as wide as the chute in a few hours. A must have for a backyard with trees and brush.

    DHT Team, please respond. Just started using this machine today. The engine starts and runs smoothly, full speed. However the thing feeds itself so fast that the cutters can’t keep up and it stalls and stops the engine on every single try. If I try to slow the feed rate by pulling back on the branch the vibration stings the hands and it gets jerked out of my grip anyway, then immediately chokes itself to a stop again.
    If I can’t resolve this problem quickly I’ll have to return it.

    Great machine. had a few issues in the beginning with bolts backing out of shredder hammers. New bolts with locktite and all is great.

    Just picked this up from our local tractor supply store. It was completely assembled but had been sitting outside, not sure for now long. Got it home and rea!used the hopper had been full of water, from rain I suspect. All the paperwork was soaked but legable. I dumped all the brown rusty water out and let it sit in my garage for a few days. In the meantime I read through all the paperwork. Tried to fill out warranty card but it was to set to take ink, just finished it a few minutes ago. Tried to start it. Engine turned over smoothly but took quit a while before firing up. Ran for about a minute, I slowed the engine down to idle and it stopped. Now I can’t turn the engine over. The start cord will not turn when I go to restart. What’s the problem?? Yes there was oil in the crankcase.

    Nice machine. Put it together today, found the Discharge Flange and the Support rod missing. I guess I will have to order and pay for this one. Hope this lasts longer than the The parts that was suppose to be there.

    Used mine for the first time today. Worked great! The engine is not easy to get going when it’s cold out. It took about 10 pulls to finally get it started. Do they make an electric starter kit for this Kohler RH engine?

    I am very pleased with my machine. It does the job it is designed to do.The only problem I have had is with the zipper on the bag, One of the teeth broke so I can not zip it all the way up. I had used it 3 times when it broke. I have a blower-vac that also has a bag that uses a plastic zipper. The difference it has large teeth instead of the small ones that you use. I have not had any problems with it and have used it to pick up leaves for 3 seasons. Over all still very pleased with your product.
