"High winds last night created a real mess here at my place," says Paul James. "Leaves are scattered everywhere, and there are quite a few fallen branches as well." A nifty new combination chipper, shredder and vacuum can help him tidy up in no time.
As a chipper, it chomps twigs and branches up to three inches in diameter. As a shredder, it gobbles up all the leaves you feed into the chute. And as a vacuum, it sucks up lawn debris, even dreaded sweet gum balls. Best of all, it’s all collected in a bag and comes out as ready-made mulch!
For bigger branches, check out this curious-looking new device (right). It’s an electric-powered chainsaw that bites into branches up to four inches thick and leaves behind a clean cut. It’s safer to use than conventional chainsaws thanks to the protective upper and lower covers on the jaws. It grabs branches and cuts them in one continuous motion.
