When it comes to disposing of the garden debris that likes to accumulate in your yard (such as branches, twigs, leaves and so on), nothing beats a shredder chipper for getting this job done quickly and efficiently. But, with all the chippers on the market, which one should you choose? When you are looking to buy a shredder chipper, you should look for the following features:

Versatile: meaning that it can dispose of the harder twigs and softer leaves.

Entry chute: it should be wide enough to take in all of the branches you want to mulch, preventing you from trimming them down first.

Exit  chute: it should be wide enough to spit out the wood chips and mulch without posing a risk of jamming.

Fast: the shredder chipper should be able to quickly process the garden debris.

Controls: they should be easy enough to operate whilst wearing protective gloves, as well as being easy to understand.

Blades: they should be easily accessible to make cleaning and repairs a simple task without posing a risk of injury.

Wheels: they should be large enough to allow easy manoeuvring over rough ground and be able to lock into place to keep the chipper from moving when in use.

Feed: the branches and twigs should be steadily drawn into the cutting mechanism, not snatched out of your hand.

There are plenty of shredder chippers on the market, and choosing the right one can be an easy decision, providing that you look for the above features in each model before purchasing. Invest in a great quality shredder chipper today and let your garden reap the benefits of being branch, twig and leaf free for years to come.
