Chipper/Shredder - Cub Cadet cs2210 or Craftsman 305cc???

Does anyone have any experience with either of these? I've been looking online but can't find anything on the cs2210. I found a decent deal on a slightly used one, but don't know if it would be better just to spend the extra money on the Craftsman model, which is on sale online right now and has a bunch of decent reviews on the Sears website.

I'm leaning towards the Craftsman for the extra HP, but the Cub Cadet would be about $300 cheaper. Just curious what someone else might think of the choice...

Edit: Just to clarify, I'd be looking at this for home use. I just got a house on a five acre lot that has a lot of trees and brush, and I can see having something like this being helpful.

If you aren't in a major hurry, I'd wait for a used one on craigslist. They probably aren't in high demand this time of year so you can probably score a great deal. I picked up mine for $25 last summer. Ran great, just needed some bolts. I will admit that I haven't used it much and it is the first one I have owned, but so far so good. Sharpening the blades made a huge improvement.

It is a 5.5HP Tecumseh OHV Simplicity. It looks to be almost exactly the same as the Earthquake chippers sold by TSC. 3" max chipping diameter. The compact design of this style does make it a bit awkward to wheel around over uneven ground, but it has a small storage footprint.

The downside to this design is there is no screen in it to control the size of the output material.
