About this deal

The main reason that I like this is that is cuts everything into cornflake sized bits, which compost or burn really well. With its laser-cut precision blade, made from especially hardened steel, it provides excellent cutting performance of green or woody garden debris. This garden shredder from Bosch is a high performance unit than can process a throughput of up to 90kg per hour, excellent for a garden product. Compact, and lightweight, but with a powerful electric motor, this machine is a handy companion for reducing waste. As soon as you put a branch into the shredder the automatic feed takes the material down so keep fingers away from the feed area and don't hold onto the branches; if the branches stops, then use the push stich provided; works very well indeed; the machine will take it through.

The thicker stuff is piled up drying for the log burner next winter, and the thinner and leafy stuff is being used as mulch under our trees.We recommend that where appropriate that you register for the 3 year warranty, this will give you peace of mind when purchasing your tool. It did not get clogged although I used fewer green waste, works better with dry / dead material I'm sure and I left in running some of the time while I cut off more branches. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. It hums away with a whistle that is quieter and bearable without, but is still advised to use ear defenders with, for extended work periods.

Its quite easy to unblock as this model enables you to change the blade so you can access where the blockages occur. Despite being lighter than most comparable shredders, the AXT Rapid 2200 excels with its high cutting performance. To start the unit, you rotate the power knob from '0' to 'I', then round further to 'II' which engages the motor.I folded some of them over too so the side shoots were taken in and chopped without too much difficulty. The fast and powerful shredder has durable, laser-cut precision blades to ensure a high cutting performance. After a day and a half of solid pyrocantha shredding work I only just needed to turn the blade over. I use one of those large rubbery, double-handled style garden waste buckets underneath it to catch all the shredded material in .

dry dead wood, soft leafy stuff, even the palm branches go through it as long as you feed them in nice and steadily (well, all except the first 20-30cm which is too thick to go in the hopper).

Got caught out once though as I had my gloved hand knocked by a small twig which was rotating v fast, wasn't pushing down with my hand but it was several inches above the opening and the twig hurt my finger. The Instructions do mention that, in the Mounting and Operation section which is hidden away near the end despite being the most important part. Large garden debris can be safely pushed into the fast-feed hopper with the help of a practical prodder. The fast-feed hopper and practical plunger ensures rapid and efficient throughput of garden debris at up to 90 kg per hour.

inevitably, and with the best will in the world, a few nasties (stones mainly) tend to get into the mix.Specifications Fitted with 2200 Watt Bosch 'PowerDrive' motor Patented large capacity hopper for quick and easy feed Practical plunger for increased material throughput 40mm high precision laser-cut, twin edged blade, reversible for extended life Exceptionally fast blade speed - 3650 rpm Fitted with motor overload/restart protection Lightweight with wheels for easy transportation ! Worked very well for 2 hours of shredding, small, medium sized branches (apple, brambles, laurel bush, leylandii and other twigs etc) and easy to use. I have used it intensively over the last week to do about 20 hours total shredding of a mixture of woody and green plant material (which I intend to compost). I was considering the more expensive Bosch shredders, but to be honest I am VERY glad I chose this one.
