I need a chipper/shredder
I am not really a handy kind of person so I am confused about this. I have done a bit of research on the web and the only thing I seem to have discovered is that they are good at either shredding leaves or chipping branches. I have six mulberry trees that I pollard every year (fresh branches about 1-1.5" thick and dry leaves), lots of roses (fresh canes up to 1") and a 40ft tall ash that provides lots of leaves in the fall. Also, I would like to stay at the lower price range (say under $400) if possible, otherwise I think it might be cheaper to buy bark at HomeDepot.
