We have suffered through warped motors, blown valve cover gaskets and catastrophic rotor fractures with our Stanley Chipper. The chipper was manufactured by GXI Outdoor Power who should be in the all-time hall of shame for quality of product and customer service. The chipper was indispensable when it was running properly.
The equipment that really held up was the Ohio Steel Swivel Dump Cart and our Poulan Pro Chainsaw. The cart has hauled innumerable loads of wood, concrete, rock and dirt and the burden of this cleanup was greatly reduced by this piece of equipment. The Poulan Pro chainsaw has taken the brunt of abuse being ran into hidden bolts, fencing, asphalt, dirt and rock. Other than filing the bar and replacing a sprocket it has been amazingly reliable and runs without fail.
