Like - Fairly quiet compared to some; The collection bin is a plus; Easy access to the blade.
Dislikes - Fails to chop long stems, quite large pieces seem to get through compared to other shredders we've had.
Adjusting the blade seems to make no difference at all.
generally not a bad shredder for the price, just accept that it's not going to shred so efficiently as some of the more expensive ones around.

I work my tools very hard, and having been used to my Atco 2000 ('RollsRoyce' of shredders), i found i had to treat the Qualcast far more gently. Other than that, it does an excellent job.

Great product, thought the rpm was slow but it chews things up easily. 3 stars because Homebase let me down on delivery bigtime. Then they sent 2 !!!

Demolished whatever was fed into it like a hungry monster, in this case a large hedge. Was great going to the recycling depot and emptying bags of chippings and watching others turn up to pull builders bags full of branches out of their cars and then struggling to empty them into the skip. This super machine makes things so much easier.

solid and if you treat it respectfully, shreds for hours and hours and hours without grumbling.

Thought it would chop better than it does.can't cope with leaves,had to keep cleaning it out.will try it again soon on some thinner branches.

Couldn't wait to assemble this, very simple, and begin shredding branches and cuttings. Works like a dream, so easy and efficient to reduce bulky debris into tiny chopped pieces for disposal into a garden refuse bin. I no longer dread pruning and taking on those tasks in the garden I might put off. Looking forward to the next session of cuttings.

this machine is a must for shredding ,easy to set up and munches through branches with ease. well recommended and a lot cheaper than other retailers who jacked the price up to £149.99. also use your nectar points to save as well
