Frequently Asked Questions
Is there any type of wood debris that this machine has problems with?
Yes. Green, freshly cut vines tend to cause the machine to clog up. This is because the machine uses blades attached to a spinning drive shaft to shred the wood. Green, freshly cut, vines can act like a rope and get caught between the cutting blades and wrap around the driveshaft to bind it up. We recommend allowing vines several weeks to dry before attempting to shred them.
What is the maximum size wood debris the machine will accept?
The manufacturer says it can accept timber up to 2.2 inches in diameter, however, running that size debris through the machine will increase the likelyhood of clogging and also slow down productivity significantly. For maximum productivity, we recommend that you do not exceed 1.75 inches in diameter.
What do I do if the machine clogs up?
No problem. At the time of delivery, we will show you how to clear out any clogs or jams in the machine.
How do I know if the cutting blades are dull?
At the time of delivery, the cutting side of the blades should feel sharp (not dull) and should be able to potentially cut a finger or skin. Blades can grow dull over the course of a rental and this is fine as long as they feel sharp to the touch at the time of delivery.
Can it shred bamboo?
Yes. This machine loves bamboo. Since bamboo is soft and generally hollow, this machine can handle bamboo shoots of much larger diameters.
Do I need to fill the tank up with gas when I'm finished?
Yes. We deliver the equipment with a full tank of gas and we ask that you top of the tank when you are finished. Don't worry, we carry equipment gas in our delivery van and we will try to leave you with more than enough gas to get through your project.

| was great and Anna did a great job showing how to use safely and efficiently.
Tricia and Eric - Jul 28, 2011 everything right: online scheduling with minimal paperwork, home delivery with rental time only starting after very effective training, well maintained machine, chipper was the right size for our job and it ran like a clock. My sense is that they have looked at the rental process for homeowners and have discovered ways to out perform other rental services through removing barriers that we typically encounter - like how to haul heavy machines to and from rental yards and definite delivery and pickup times. Would strongly recommend them for home equipment rentals.
Ruth B - April 22, 2012 that I could schedule a brush chipper rental online the night before about midnight. Easy. So much less hassle than driving to a big box and arranging to rent, tow a chipper and return it. Life has enough stresses as it is. Equipment was well-cared for. This was a breeze!
Matthew - Apr 16, 2012 exactly as pictured, and in good working order. Great support from the guys when I ran into trouble (didn't notice that I was tripping a safety switch). I would not hesitate to rent more gear from YardRents. They're working hard to build a great business and it shows.
Mike - Apr 16, 2012 Rented the wood chipper Saturday April14th. Delivered on time with Text message sent with estimated time day of delivery. Friendly employees. Chipper never jammed. I would definitely rent from these guys again.
Felix B. - May 27, 2012 stunning service, great machines - great price - same as last time, thanks to yardrents :)
Barb - Apr 23, 2012 I had intended to rent from Home Depot, but the nearest one doesn't rent tools and it was late at night by the time I went online and found this out. Went to YardRents.com, found they deliver a small chipper, and was even able to schedule right online then and there! The guys who came are real peaches and the equipment in good shape. They kept in touch with the timing of delivery and made everything go smoothly. Old-fashioned good service. Yay!
Brett M. - June 3, 2012 Michael was very professional, fast and efficient. I would recommend YardRents.com to anyone and will most likely use them again in the near future.
K M. - July 19, 2012 Delivery was on time, and Jordan moved the chipper to where I needed it and gave excellent instructions and left me with plenty of gas. The equipment was in excellent condition, functioned very well, and was highly efficient. I got through my project in less time than expected. Then they came and picked it up, and I didn't have to be home--receipt by email. I plan to rent more large equipment from them. This is one great service!
Chris B. - Aug 3, 2012 Needing a medium pile of cleared brush and branches gone and also needing mulch for ground cover, I rented the wood shredder/mulcher. With Steve's help getting in the right place in the garden and his great instructions, it was no problem, even a bit fun, watching that ugly pile turned into ground cover in less than 2 hours. So glad we didn't buy a cheap shredder for this task, the powerful mulcher did the job for a very reasonable price, all done by 2 women a bit past middle age.

Prior To Using the Wood Shredder
Designate a level location where the wood chipper can operate without tipping.
Pile all of your branches, brush and debris into one location so you don't have to transport them very far to feed them into the machine.
Consider having a low profile box or tarp available to collect the shredding.
Separate out any brush, debris, or branches that are over 1.75 inches thick.
Consider warning your neighbors that you will be operating a loud piece of equipment.
