Chipper-shredder Troy-Bilt CS4265

Need to cut towering piles down to size? The hopper of this heavy-duty beast swallows wads of leaves, not to mention sticks less than ½ inch in diameter, and pulverizes them with a spinning blade and a dozen steel flails. Then it sends them to a voluminous, 6.2-cubic-foot bag. A separate chute equipped with steel knives chips branches up to 2 inches across. The 4-cycle, 205-cc gas engine never hesitated.

Fine print: 112 dB.
