Reviews Description: This is the perfect 5.5 HP machine for large property owners. This gas-powered unit will quickly make mulch out of thick 1 1/4" inch diameter branches by running them down the cone. Small trimmings and yard waste can be dropped in the hopper for shredding. Our unit is ideal for shredding leaves. There are no belts or pulleys to replace with direct drive system. All the power goes directly into chipping and shredding. Your new shredder will consistently make coin size chips without the need to change messy screens and covers. Two wheels make it easy to move the unit around your yard. An outboard bearing insures that you will have many years of smooth trouble free chipping.
