After my initial delight, I am very disappointed. The internal mechanism somehow does no longer work and I am too chicken to take it all apart.
I can out the pencil in and it will grip it but there is no resistance and no sharpening, the handle just turns.
I bought this product 10 months ago and it has only been used occasionally, not satisfactory at all.
Is it really wrong to expect items to last years rather than months?

I bought this model to replace an old and inefficient shredder.
It runs well and has coped with a lot of shredding, both freshly cut perennials as well as garden waste cut a few months back. Old buddleia stems, ivy, berberis, leylandii branches, brambles and philadelphus branches were all tackled without problems. I was shredding for two hours and only had one blockage. Easy to assemble in 5 minutes. Easy to lift in and out of car. It produces beautifully small clippings which should compost well.

This arrived and looked great! Solid item, well packaged. We unpacked put together and switched on and nothing happened. Checked connections and fuse, still nothing, so it had to go back. Have ordered a replacement.
Update: the replacement has been in use now for four months without any problems. A little nosy but works well otherwise.
