Disappointing. I have a large garden: loads of hedge trimmings, both privet and country-style, plus a huge demand for mulch, round trees and on the veg patch. Shredder! Ideal solution. But after one session with some narrow willow clippings (2mm max diameter) the blade was seriously blunted and thereafter extruded strips rather than choppings. I had expected a bag to come with it, but no I had to buy one separately. I had chosen the Bosch AXT Rapid 2200 - Electric Shredder
as it is normally a good make and the best in my price range. I shall still use it for tender green clippings, but as for the job I had expected it to do: forget it. It's back to the bonfires for me.
