How to Rent a Chipper Shredder

Create mulch with a chipper shredder.

A chipper shredder is a handy tool. It takes branches, logs or any other wood, chops it into small pieces and expels the finished product into a pile in front of the shredder. This wood is the right size for mulch. If you don't own a chipper shredder there are multiple locations nearby where you can rent one.

Visit your local hardware and home improvement store, such as Lowe's or Home Depot.

Ask at the rental counter about a chipper shredder. More than likely the store will have several. If the chipper shredder is not in the store just then, set up a day and time to return and rent it.

Give your name and credit card information. The card is billed, but the information is left on file. This is in case you don't return the chipper shredder, are late returning it, or damage it.

Set up a return time for the shredder. You can rent the shredder for a time slot or a few days, depending on your needs.

Return the chipper shredder on time or before the allotted time. Fill the gas tank before returning it. If you don't you may have to pay a refill fee.
