Does what it says! Another quality product from Bosch,
This review is from: Bosch AXT Rapid 2200 Blade Shredder (40 mm Cutting Capacity) (DIY & Tools)
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.
* Wear goggles and ear defenders
* You don't need the bag that can be bought separately, a box, garden bucket, etc will do
* Don't include soil or stones as the blade will blunt, if you pull out brambles, cut off the roots and only shred the topgrowth
- Replacement blades can also be bought at Screwfix, they are original Bosch parts
Don't believe the reviewer that said it would only cope with soft clippings, it takes small branches up to 40mm as advertised. It does not suck them in, you have to help them along and gently push in but it is effortless to use.
Edited October 2011:
I have been extremely happy with my shredder. Over the last few weeks though I noticed that the main switch was becoming temperamental. I contacted Amazon who refered me to Bosch. After contacting Bosch I was advised that my purchase was still under warranty (2 years) and they collected the shredder free of charge. Have rung today for an update and been advised that they will replace the item and a new shredder will be on its way. Fabulous customer service.

Did you get your new shredder and is it still working as intended?
