Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 60 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for yard clean up easy to use October 25, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great idea, but doesn't last... I had not one but two of these. It is a great idea but is poorly executed, like so many of today's products (not built to last). First , let me say I have a large yard with a lot of leaves. At first it was breezing through all those leaves - thought it was the greatest thing ever. Then the on/off switch became very fussy and it would power itself off constantly, usually with a full bin. Then, from the heavy use, the plastic head that holds the trimmer string started to melt into the metal nut that holds it on - which prevents you from replacing the string. The company sent me a new rotor and I even eased up on my heavy use of it so as not to overheat it. Same thing happened with the new rotor. I promptly put the whole thing in the trash and bought a mulching lawnmower. So, again, great idea but poor engineering. Are you listening, FlowTron? September 22, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Missing screws and fasteners Missing all the screws and fasteners, so i could not install the legs. Make sure to check to see if everything is included before you leave the store. The machine is also very loud. You may have to wear ear protection. When it shreds, it gets quite dusty, so be prepare to get dirty. Also will need a face mask as the dust (or the shredded leaves) will fly everywhere and into your nose. Other than that, it shreds the leaves well. You can only put in a double handful at a time, so it will take time. there are several options for course, medium, and fine so you can choose the grade that you want. Not sure how long it will last, as i only owned it for a couple of months, and have done only 5 bags of leaves. May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works very well I bought the machine primarily to mulch pine needles, which I normally bag up and throw away. The mulcher was easy to use and the end result was pine needles small enough to use as mulch or in compost. Pine needles are normally very slow to decompose; however, I discovered that piling up the mulched needles and keeping them moist caused them to break down very quickly. They are great for mulching flower beds, mixing with garden soil, etc. and of course, they smell great. I did notice that the best way to use the machine is to add only small handfuls at a time. Overfilling it will only cause it to get clogged up. But processing what would normally have been approximately 12 large garden bags full of needles was surprisingly fast. I plan to use it on dry leaves next and expect that it will work just as well or even better for that task. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shreds the leaves This leaf shredder does what it should, shreds the leaves. Takes many piles and makes one small pile. It's noisy and messy but that's just part of the game. The switch is a little hard to get to when it's sitting on a garbage pail. But it destroys the leaves and small twigs you give it. April 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed Once you get the hang of feeding leaves into mulcher you can make quick work of the leaf pile. I use my "Sunware" big grab hands to feed the leaf eater. It makes great mulch. Replacing cutting bands is quick and easy. No more bagging and lifting of leaves. Mulcher is easy to move around the yard. December 12, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not bad but..... I have used this LeafEater on 2 weekends for the equivalent of approx. 80-90 bags of un-shredded leaves (e.g. used about ½ of the cutting lines supplied). Here are my comments: 1) On assembling legs #17 & 18, the wing nuts #43 were 8-32. I had to re-tap them to 10-32 to match the screws #42. 2) I also had to enlarge the holes in legs #17 & 18 to .203” dia for the screws #42 to pass through. 3) When attaching the funnel #1 to the main housing, one of the funnel halves developed a crack. 4) After some shredding, I removed the air filter #34 and noticed quite a bit of dirt that had collected at the bottom of that cavity (see pic #1). 5) After removing that dirt with my shop vac, I saw daylight (pic #2). 6) That means, dirt can get into the air supply duct to the motor directly from INSIDE of the housing (see pics #3 & 4), rendering the filter almost useless. 7) I’ve closed these openings as good as I could with duct tape (see pics #5 & 6) and after finishing all the rest of the remaining leaves, that area still looks pretty clean. However, this is not a solution and those gaps should never have existed in the first place!!! 8) Toward the end of my shredding, I noticed the spinner wobbling more and more and the rumbling sound of it getting louder. It looks like the upper bearing of the motor is badly worn and needs to be replaced (see pic #9). That is also the reason for returning this “Leaf Eater”, as I don’t think it would last another season and by that time it would be off the warranty. 9) When, after finishing the job, I wanted to remove the funnel from the main housing for cleaning and applied some pressure with my thumb, the funnel cracked at that spot. This material is just too brittle and not flexible enough! See also comment #3) above. Summary: The idea itself is good, but not well thought out. It is a flimsy design and needs some improvements. One can not feed the leaves by large handfulls, I had to hold them over the funnel and slowly “sprinkle” them in. That way there was a constant supply of leaves to the cutting lines and the motor never had to labour. It is slow going and I could live with that, but not with worn bearings!!! With other words, yes it is a flimsy design, not a “heavy duty” machine, but one can manage as long as one does not overload or rough-handle it. I would gladly buy another one, as long as all of the problems mentioned above have been rectified. February 15, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by save your money not efficient, loud, and messy. will only grind a small amount of leaves at a time. I am leaving it at the curb for trash pick up. Just wasted 160.00. March 29, 2016
