There is no need to force branches into the infeed, as the design of the chipper actually sucks the material into the machine, making infeed a breeze. I used a plastic packing tote [ imageshack. It was just the right size to fit under the outfeed without throwing chipped wood all over the place.
I recommend this method to anyone who buys this chipper.
There is a protection circuit in the chipper that throws a circuit breaker, stopping the motor if it gets clogged. At one point, I overloaded the infeed and the circuit breaker worked as advertised. After unplugging the chipper, opening the throat plate, and clearing the clog, I was able to reset the breaker and continue chipping. The entire process was actually pretty easy, and is a good design in my opinion.
Results The chipper does a fantastic job of turning tree limbs into shredded mulch. The mulch pieces are quite small, with the largest few pieces as big around as a nickel. Most of the mulch was much smaller though, about the size of a few grains of rice bunched together. Cleaning Cleaning the chipper after I was done was very easy. There is a single knob used to open the throat plate. Once open, you can easily get to the blade and the upper part of the infeed to wipe everything down.

You know, Harbor Freight has some great stuff. Now if you were using the items everyday, then they probably wouldn't last. I bought a cement mixer there, it not something I use everyday, or even monthly, but the few times I have used it or loaned it out, has paid for itself many times over. Get back, witch!
