A Useful Purchase,
This review is from: Bosch AXT 25 D Quiet Shredder (DIY & Tools)We have a large garden with lots of trees and mature shrubs which seem to constantly need cutting back, pruning and lopping. As a result I was starting to joke that our compost heap could soon be seen on Google Earth...Anyway, once I'd heard that the people who used to own our house had ended up having to buy a shredder, I knew it was only a matter of time before we would have to get one too and my husband agreed. A couple of months ago we took the plunge and bought one of these after visiting various DIY stores and researching all the various models on the internet.
We got a good price on this one and it seems pretty sturdy - it also arrived very quickly so full marks for that. It munched though a whole lot of stuff from various bushes, small trees etc, and seemed to keep going better if we alternated more leafy green stuff with more woody bits which drove the softer stuff through. Some things didn't get shredded as much as 'squished up' but it all helped to considerably reduce the volume of garden rubbish that went onto the compost heap. We've used it two or three times since with smaller quantities of stuff than we initially tackled and all in all we're pretty pleased.
