Absolutely not. This is a 13 AMP weed wacker with a funnel. Small twigs will wear the line down quickly.

I want to be able to throw in a bolted head of lettuce and turn it into compost. The price of this unit is right, the opening looks like it will take the lettuce, only question left is whether or not the strings will do the job. Thanks in advance.

Answer: 
No, the head would be too fibrous and the material just too dense since it would be becoming more "stemmy" than "leafy". This device is more a shredder than a mulcher and works better on dry, thin material than moist. Dry, large, individual leaves are its best subject; no stems. It "rips" leaves apart, the drier, the better.

I am a 3D printer and I have left over plastic parts and failed prints that I would like to recycle. Specialized shredders are like 700$! If I could use this to the same end it would be ideal.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 69 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shredder Joe Leaf Mulcher Review Product design for assembly was very simplistic. The shredder has a strong motor utilizing filament line for shredding the leaves and adjustable damper to regulate size of discharged leaf particles. A large hopper allows feeding in leaves for maximum efficiency so the job gets done with minimum effort and time. I thought the purchase price was on the high side, however after using the shredder, I believe that with some longevity the cost will be a great bargain. March 20, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Okay but not great It deals with small, dry leaves well enough, but gets tangled up easily and chokes on the (short) stems of English ivy, even dry ones. Would not recommend. August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by String Waster Picture this ... take your string weed whacker, and place it against a hard object, and do not move it away. See how long it takes for you to go through a spool of string? If you rake up a small twig, a nut from a tree, or a pebble, it sits in the bin hitting the string, grinding the string down to a nub. I spend more time replacing the strings, and meticulously separating what I rake up, than I do actually mulching. I bought last Fall, and did not use it until this Spring ... wish I would have tried it earlier and returned it! If it had a metal grinder, you could hear something was not mulching in the bin, and take it out ... Instead, you know something harder than plastic string is in the bin, when you hear a whirling noise; meaning it ground the string down to nothing. May 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I'm not sure how I lived without it! The shredder was easy to assemble and it's easy to move around due to the handles. The product does exactly what it says it does. The only downfall is sometimes the telescopic legs loosen. That could be me not tightening them enough or due to vibration. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Use Leaf Shredder! Easy to assemble with clear directions. I raked a quarter of an acre of land with lots of last year's leaves and I only had to replace the plastic wire once which was very easy to do. The plastic wire is sturdy and strong. Shreds the leaves very fine; almost like dirt...true to the 16 bags to 1 ratio. Can use the shredded leaves in compost. May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did a nice job on dry leaves Turned dry leaves into a nice fine materials. Where there were sticks it used up the line a lot fasten than anticipated. May 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by leaf shredder, good idea, bad product While operating, this shredder did a pretty good job. The bag attachment means is just an elastic band but holds a 39 gallon bag well. The thing eats up string quickly and I poorly insulated from flying dust made by the shredding process. The legs are cheaply made and one of three didn't fit, kept falling out. After 4 days of use I had bagged 9 bags and when I turned it on the next day, it just didn't start. No noise, smoke, pop or anything, just quit working. A neighbor stopped by and said he wanted one but heard the motor fails too quickly. Mine quit the next day. Don't buy this one. Home Depot made the refund. January 12, 2016
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.
