Right AFTER I bought a wood chipper, I read a recommendation that you skip buying one, and RENT the best one you can afford. Anything short of the huge ones you see the highway department using, that can handle anything, is going to be disappointing.

You'll only be able to shred the smaller stuff, and even though they're supposed to make short work of leaves, the smaller ones clog easily. Anything that's really hard wood or has knots will cause a problem too, as well as limbs with branching.

After using mine, I'd have to agree. Stockpile your to-be-shredded-goodies, save your pennies, and rent a big mamma-jamma shredder.
