Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase! Worked exactly as we had hoped. We highly recommend this shredder. It will shred a ton of leaves in a short while. We did not try any twigs, etc. - wanted strictly for leaves and it met our expectations. Easy to set up - easy to replace bags under it and a large hopper to throw the leaves into. We have huge trees on our property and our neighbors that blow into our yard. Have used extensively three times and have not had to replace the string yet. November 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great job mulching leaves,easy to replace nylon string, light and easy to handle this leaf shredder replaced an old shredder that died on me. It does a much better job shredding leaves and replacing the nylon string is an easier job to do. I did have a problem starting it the last time I had used it ( to many wet leaves??) and contacted the company. They were very pleasant to deal with and actually sent me a replacement shredder with a prepaid return label for old machine. January 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value Very good product for the money. So far I've shredded about 20 giant bags of leaves. Only reduces volumn by about 50%, but makes a very nice mulch for the garden or the compost pile. For the first time my compost pile located in the shade is generating heat like it is supposed to because the leaves are shredded. It's not real fast and you can't just dump a bag in (per the instructions) but it does get the job done. It is also VERY light and easy to move around. January 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Light Weight and Female Friendly I love my new leaf shredder. It is light weight to move around the yard and girl friendly. Check out my video on YouTube on how easy it is for me to use. September 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by useable makes good mulch Works well but need to be cautious to not get twigs in. They will cause the feeding apparatus to clog. Need to be patient while material is shredded. Kids love to shove way too much material into it. The resulting mulch was fantastic November 5, 2013
