Great at shredding, when it's working.

I bought this 4 days ago to shred some pruned tree branches at my daughter's. It was fine the first day, but on the second day it just stopped. I reset and it went for about 30 seconds then stopped again. none of the branches were over 15 mm and most were really twigs. Any advise on what to do, as I said it's ideal when it's working.
Not Bad, not great either.

Generally the product is good. Tackles 40mm branches with ease as log as they are relatively straight and limbs are cut back. Does not particularly like freshly cut leaves or vines as it tends to clog a little. Biggest bugbear is the collection box latch does not retract fully and James the collection box. As a result, after about a2 months of ownership the box has cracked due to the force of trying to get the box out to empty it. Ryobi really needs to re think this.
Very powerful & very capable

I bought this shredder July 2018 and have not used it heavily at all.
During the times I HAVE used it, it has been GREAT for shredding garden waste for mulching the bits in my garden.
There were two reasons I bought the Ryobi shredder over anything else, firstly it has 2500w of power and I could not find a more powerful one without spending silly money, and secondly, it shreds fairly thick branches up to 1 1/2 imches in thickness.
My only gripe is that it is very noisy, so if you are doing a lot of shredding then ear protection is highly recommended.

For dry branches up to the recommended size it works reasonably well although the feed slot is too small and it can be difficult to align the branch with the blades. With conifer cuttings and anything else other than solid branches it is almost useless. VERY time consuming to load due to the size and design of the feed slot so little material can be added at a time. Shredding is hit and miss: when small amounts of material are fed very slowly the results can be OK although unsuitable for mulching due to a tendency to strip rather than shred small branches. The end result is the Ryobi really isn't suitable for the range of material produced in an average garden. What a shame, have had to dismantle and return!

Easy to assemble and easy to operate. Haven't tried it on maximum sized items of wood but deals very effectively with items from pencil thickness through to about 3cm thickness and chops all these down to pretty small pieces. Doesn't deal with narrower items (5mm and below) very well and leaves those a few inches long but OK. It's quite loud but that's understandable I think. The only downside I would say is the removal of the collection tub as the catch doesn't fully disengage making it awkward to remove. That could just be a fault on my particular product but it looks like a design issue. It's frustrating because the machine doesn't operate unless the collection tub is properly engaged so means it's awkward to remove every time it's used! Overall is good though.
