INSIDE THE BEAST
Open up the frame, and you have instant access to the cutting blade and rotor. From there you can appreciate the rotors heavy build, one blade setup and the enormous flywheel . This pivotal frame design is only found in commercial grade chippers.
WIDE CHUTE FEED
Our design team paid great attention to the fact that branches are not straight! Our feed chute is wide enough to accommodate riddled branches with twigs and leaves.
Thanks to its carefully angled anvil and blade cutting angles that when combined, create an phenomenal self-feeding action that will have you running for more branches to chip.

I purchased the Yardbeast 3514 about a month ago. It assembled easily and worked well from the first use. It starts on the first pull each time (even @ 30 F temp) and readily chips the three main materials I have, bamboo, hardwood branches, and honeysuckle. I really appreciate the heavy flywheel as is does not bog down like many other chippers i have used. I also like the large chute as it makes feeding the chipper so much easier. Finally, I received fast and respectful service from the customer service department. Thanks for a great machine!

I ordered by phone. I was happy to have a person answer and not a robo menu. I wanted to make sure the price included delivery to my door and not out on the street like the DR brand. Delivery was right at my garage from a box truck with a lift gate. I've used it only twice but am very happy with the quality and performance.
It devours three-inch hardwood and the feed hopper is big enough to take limbs with side branches. Much less using the loppers than my old Tomahawk chipper shredder. The discharge chute is high enough to go into my utility trailer to get rid of the chips. I think it is 5 star.

Probably the most powerful machine out there that can be maneuvered by hand. Easily outperformed my old 8 hp Bearcat. I live in the Pacific Northwest, and the engine barely slowed down as it chipped maximum sized branches and saplings (mostly madrona, fir, cedar and alder). The centrifugal clutch is also a great improvement over the belt and pulley system of the Bearcat. My major complaint is that attachment of the axles and wheels was difficult due to the weight of the machine and cramped access to the fasteners. Also, the instructions should include a better illustration of the installation of the tongue assembly

I've had this for about a year or so now, and am very pleased. I have 5 acres, about a third in the garden, and the rest is forest. Lots of branches down every winter, trees too. I've chipped up to the maximum (3 1/2") with this beast, and it does a great job. Dry and green limbs of madrona (that are short and straight enough! ha!), hazelnut, fir, maple, alder, and anything else woody that I can stick in the chute - it chomps it all, makes great chips. Huge amounts of bang for the buck. No regrets about buying this machine.

We've had the 3514 for 4 years now and we are very happy with it. It is rugged and gets through all that we throw at it. We are surrounded by trees and end up taking a few down every year. We are in the middle of two days of chipping all the branches from 4 trees that died or are in the way. The yardbeast has no problem with it.
Pros: Strong, mobile (just enough), reliable and easy starting, and small enough to store in the shed with the mower
Cons: we have to move the 3514 over some rougher terrain to get to the limbs. We haven't tipped it over yet but we need to take it slow and careful.
