Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quickly Chews Up Leaves I got this to help dispose of the trimmings I made to my Red Oak trees this Spring. So all the leaves were green and attached to small twigs. I thought that this might be a more challenging job than piles of dry Fall leaves. But that didn't matter to this Sun Joe! It very quickly made a minced green blob of leafy matter just a fraction of the size of the pile it formerly was. The small twigs passed through stripped bare. It can do about a 5' round pile of leaves in about 2 minutes. I prefer to place a 20 gallon rubber barrel underneath it to catch the mulch then dump that out. It is loud and whines at a higher pitch than an electric weed eater. The plastic filament is thick at 0.10 size and you could cut your own replacement pieces from a spool of line. When done, you can easily disassemble it and store it in the box it came in. June 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works too well! It was easy to assemble the mulcher... I didn't even look at the directions until after I was done. I quickly shredded 8-10 bags of leaves into 1-1/2 bags. I did not have to replace the cutting string at all, but there were no small limbs in the leaves, either. The second wave of fallen leaves were damp from rain, but I had shredded the larger pile so quickly that I knew I could wait a day or two for the leaves to dry. You will stop more often to unclog wet leaves, so let them dry first if you can. I was kinda expecting to have to work a little harder.... For now, the mulcher sits in the garage, having done its job quickly and efficiently. October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sun Joe reduced last years fall collection by 1/4 the volume. Sun Joe shredder helped me reduce volume and cleanup my composting area. It needs to be feed slowly but the end result is uniform tiny peaces of leaves. When mixed with grass cuttings my compost pile temperature went up right away and started cooking. I have only had the shredder for two weeks but it looks like it will cut my time to finished compost in half. The unit fits perfectly with standard lef collection bags. Thanks PS Good customer service and quick response to questions. Dan May 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Like a Champ! I wouldn't reccommend this for doing the whole yard, but, it is perfect for mulching the leftover leaves that come down after having them picked up by our lawn guy. It was very easy to assemble and a full container of leaves mulches into very tiny pieces in less than 30 seconds. We also have a row of pine trees so it will come in quite handy for getting rid of some of those darn pine needles! We were able to store it easily between the cars in our two-car garage - small footprint. May 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good pricing on a good product The product went together easily. I was a little hesitant after reading some of the reviews, but went ahead and tried the shredder anyway. I am happy I did as this shredder works great. You do have replace the easily replaced line more often if you run twigs, rocks or bark through it. It is loud. I also built a wood base for it so it set on a large trash barrel. Using the trash barrel is much easier than using bags. Its not a commercial unit but for home use it will do the job.
