Having lost a large plum tree in a recent storm we were faced with the problem of how to dispose of all the branches. Usually we would have to take hundreds of trips to the tip, but with this beauty, all the branches were shredded to tiny pieces that fit easily into garden bags.
It is powerful enough to cut through branches up to about an inch in diameter and it is very quiet when running.
I would thoroughly recommend and to be honest I don't know why I didn't get one years ago!

Very well packed, following the instructions allows easy assembly. I particularly like the way the thing is built, very robust.
Be very careful when setting the cutting head, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS as this initial adjustment is very important.
Once done with correct PPE on I started it up and gave it some stuff to eat, brilliant!!
Be patient with it, it is a machine but will perform perfectly if you use common sense.
It will chop up thick branches but I would not like to shove big branches through it for long periods, up to 30mm it handles quite easily.
The box does need to be pulled out now an then to level the contents, no problem.
The lead is long enough, about 3m.
The first time I used it, it reminded me of my mate eating chocolate fingers....
This is a welcome and very handy garden machine which has saved us a lot of time and hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dyse Great Shredder, but silent?
Shreds even newly cut hedge well. Mix twiggy bits and leafy pieces to get best results as others have said. For the price is absolutely brilliant once set up as per instructions. Not silent by any means but quiet enough to shred for hours without worrying about noise. Safety features excellent and very difficult to clog, brilliant!

So pleased with this shredder. Easy to assemble and does a really good job. The collection box pulls out easily and is a good size so you don't have to keep emptying it every minute

Delighted with this though it is not "silent"; it is " quiet" and could still annoy neighbours. Very good design with excellent safety features. If wood is damp it doesn't separate properly.

The machine was not a bad deal from Home Base @ some £50 off.
It cuts fairly thick branches as it says on the Label and did what we wanted it to do, can be stored for winter and packed back as it came which is quite compact which does not take up to much space.
Marks out of 10 ? well I`ll give it a 9.

I borrowed one recently to try it out and thought I must have one of my own as I have a fairly large garden.
It makes short work of the branches very easy to operate...neatly fits into the box for storage, might have been easier with a couple of quick release type bolts for that part but only 4 screws so not too long to take the top part off. Extremely quiet and safe to operate.
I should have bought one years ago , I have been using the chipped branches to cover parts of the garden to keep the weeds away.....
