Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Best Friend When I spotted the shape and spec matching that of one of Titon's shredders at 'a well known merchant shop' and sells for £20 more, I then wasn't put off so much by the price. There obviously getting it from the same place with there own colours and branding ( or non branding in b&Q's case).Now I normally don't buy cheep tools! I use Makita and Festool tools, but a few things on the spec caught my eye. The max cut is as large as any other and its also just as powerful. I did the same as someone else, and cut out the under grill/teeth as otherwise it clogs up easily. Iv been using this for hours and its defo my favourite new tool.. I couldn't stop laughing as i fed in branches and it just gobbles them up.. The spec says it only does about 80kg per hour cutting but honestly it rips through it so fast, buy the time you bend down for another piece its finished munching away. It doesn't come with a bucket but my 26L flexi bucket fits perfectly between the legs and is the perfect height. The wheels are wheels.. it weighs 20KG so nice to have them. Only down side for me is when mashing in with the poker stick it comes with, it bends a little near the handle a few times and I'm not sure how long that will last, but its still in one peace so who knows. Bit of advice? careful of kick backs whacking the wood against you're arm and don't hold you're palm over the top of the branch as the kickback kin'erts! having said that it doesn't jump out so don't panic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRILLIANT VALUE FOR MONEY BOUGHT THIS SHREDDER ON SPECIAL OFFER WITH AN EXTRA 10% OAP DISCOUNT ON TOP - SO UNDER £60. WAS NOT EXPECTING TOO MUCH BUT IT WORKS GREAT AND IS MUCH QUIETER THAN EXPECTED. THE EXIT CHUTE DOES REQUIRE CLEARING OCCASIONALLY - BUT NOT TOO BAD. IT DOES SEEM THAT SPARE BLADES MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE, BUT THEY ARE REVERSIBLE, SO I WILL CROSS THAT BRIDGE COME TO IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good budget shredder Wish I'd bought it sooner. Shredded bushes a treat. Does clog if putting too much damp leaves through but otherwise very useful

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product for the price Brought the shredder as I had a lot of thorny weeds to dispose of. It cut through these effortlessly along with birch branches with ease. The only minus is the exit is very narrow so blocks frequently so as long as you are happy to clear this frequently think this is a very good buy. Very easy to assemble was up and ready to go within 15 minutes. Surprisingly quiet as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value and works well I have had this for approx 6 weeks and it has worked well. Internally it appears to my previous B&Q purchased basic model ftom around 10yrs ago. That is no bad thing, if it works why change it. It does tend to block up if you put large amounts of foliage through but it is easy to clear. I just wish that the securing bolt had a shorter thread and a knob which was easier to spin. The long throw of the bolt makes repetetive clearing tedious. One extra I would like to see is a grab handle on that long straight front panel, it would make it so much easier to manouevre the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked well Works well for small gardens. Frequent unlocking required but not a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working well for me! I am shredding the branches from a lime tree which sprouts like mad. They are quite fresh and crisp and the shredder works well with them. Keeping the base out of the pile of shreddings makes a big difference in terms of blocking - it backs up very quickly if you don't. The leaves don't get very shredded and do have a tendency to jam the exit. I also sawed off the plastic guard teeth at the exit to help the outflow! I would avoid knotty, dry or piney wood. For the price it seems like a very good tool.
