The body of the Lawnmaster Leaf Shredder Chipper is constructed of UV stabilized plastic, and it comes with a “push stick” to aid n the safety of introducing material into the hopper. In the hopper is a removeable panel that gives access to the inside allowing any jams to be cleared. It also allows for the reversible blades to be changed. Once this panel is opened a safety switch isolates the electricity removing the chance of accidents! To avoid power disconnection a cord keeper is situated on the side.

Reviews of the Lawnmaster Electric Shredder Chipper
Well, even though the sample size of the Lawnmaster Electric Shredder Chipper reviews was limited, no reviewer graded it five or four, in fact it was about 50:50 between three and two. So the performance of this model shredder has not been well received so far. Although users were impressed with the power of the Lawnmaster Electric Shredder Chipper, they were not impressed with its ability to chip branches. One user said he had difficulty effectively chipping 0.125 (1/8) inch branches, any larger it just seemed to strip them. This could be something to do with the need to hold onto the branch as it is fed in – even so this is a bit irritating.
Others said the Lawnmaster Leaf Shredder Chipper was great to have the 15 amps, but the top hopper opening was too small meaning you had to reduce the size of material by pruning before you fed it in. The “push stick” was a good idea though. One person had problems with the cut out switch and although Lawnmaster were quick to respond to the email, subsequent action was almost a month before a new one was dispatched. So bearing in mind the relatively limited size of the review we would have a “wait and see” attitude to our recommendation for the Lawnmaster Electric Shredder Chipper, because there are other shredders/chippers out there that are proving to be a good buy.
