Rated 5 out of 5Â by incompetent Good good value shredder
Tremendous value. Seems solid and up to the job although I have to date only used it 3 times albeit with a mountain of branches each time. Reasonably quiet too. Cannot think why anybody should want to pay more unless they are a professional gardener.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DrJoinery Feisty little machine
I was sceptical about this machine...
But after having used it extensively throughout the summer I admit to being very impressed.
Even when it does choke up it easily cleaned out.
Changing the blades (which can be sharpened) if you have the correct hex head driver takes just minutes as well.
Mulching my hedge & using it to fill a dip has saved me many trips to the skip & more than covered the cost of the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Spanielman Superb value
Bought this today and used it for the first time. Very impressed!
This is easy to assemble and seems robust. It is very quiet in operation, much quieter than I expected. It shreds dry woody material very quickly and easily with no blockages. Leafy material is not ejected from the exit shute and does block. This is probably because the exit shute is very narrow, presumably to stop the less safety conscious from trying to remove blockages by inserting their hand! However blockages are very easy to clear by opening up the machine.
Value for money is unbeatable, it's a very good quality machine at an exceptional price.
I have given it 4 stars for reliability because I had to give it something but obviously I have not had it long enough yet to tell.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by snoz64 Great value shredder
We needed sonething that would shred the mountain of greenery from our enormous collection of perennial shrubs and plants. Our current stick muncher cannot handle it and clogs all the time so we bought this.
The first 5 minutes of use were frustrating as the bottom end (chute) kept blocking due to the design flaw of the "fins" at the bottom. Tried spraying the fins too with silicon spray with little imrovement.
However the blades clearly were coping brilliantly so we decided , like many others on here, to cut them off. The next 3 hours were happily spent shredding tons of green material with no further blockages or otherwise. We are delighted with it.
We were also assured by Screwfix that replacements blades are available from them and there is a part number in the provided manual.
