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.

Good value shredder. So far only used once and made short work of large amount of tree cuttings and into nice small chips. On plus side is pretty powerful, compact, easy to wheel about, fairly basic & looks very easy to change blades if ever needed. A couple of minor gripes: with large leaves on branches it clogged a few times - easy to clear, but the single screw knob to undo the front takes many turns, far more than must really be necessary (have a good mind to saw off some of the end of its bolt). The reason for clogging with large leaves looks to be small splines at the end of the plastic chute which can catch them & start the blockage. These splines appear to serve no useful purpose - again have a good mind to cut these off. Overall though can't complain at the price.

I bought one of these and had to return it due to an electrical fault. The replacement had the same fault, but not nearly so permanent so I kept it.
I use two shredders, an old cog wheel style Mountfield crusher that I use for larger limbs and the Titan to shred and cut smaller branches.
Both are great, both block up occasionally but I spend more time unblocking the Titan and I've never had to dismantle the Mountfireld to remove twigs.
The Titan is way faster than the Mountfield but it's underpowered for medium to large branches .. especially as the blades blunt.
The quality of the output is different too. The Mountfield has no intention of producing anything finer than a rough mulch, whereas the Titan creates the best pre-composting material you could ever wish for.
My overall feeling is that for nearly everyone, the Titan is a winner just by price alone. It's let down by the narrow exit and the time you spend fiddling with it if you have leaves to shred, but if you like to recycle your garden waste by composting, it's clearly the machine to use â¦ However, if you have piles of twigs and leaves you are better off using a lawnmower to shred them and it's much faster and won't clog!
