21 in. 5 Amp Electronic Leaf-Eater/Ultimate Mulcher is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 122.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from First ten bags of leaves went well. Several things you need to know--It's not the fastest mulcher... First ten bags of leaves went well. Several things you need to know--It's not the fastest mulcher on the market, about ten bags of leaves per hour unless they are wet which slows you down to half that. It does not like sticks unless they are under 1/8 inch or less-- failure to separate them will snap line quickly. You cannot just dump handfuls of leaves into the hopper, you have to feed the leaves by releasing them slowly through your hands--at a steady pace. I left the grading gate open about halfway which produced mulch at a 10 to 1 ratio and was small enough that the wind did not blow it off my garden rows. I tried smaller settings which slowed the grinding process down tremendously. The string was easy to change and the original line was swapped out for better octagon shaped .090 line which last much longer. The assembly was very easy and there were no tricky steps. The machine is very lightweight which makes mobility simple and is exactly what attracted me to it. I ran the machine about a half hour and rested it because others have said it heats up-- I did not find this to be the case and at the finish of the 1 hour work out the motor was still cool to the touch. I would imagine the motor heat is proportionate to how hard you push the grinding activity and I proceded at a steady but slower pace. All in all I like the flowtron 900E and would purchase again. My wife and I are avid gardeners and have other tractor equipment that could do this job much quicker. However, the time and muscle it takes to hook the PTO shredder up isn't worth the trouble at our age anymore and our garden size reflects our age. This is not a commercial machine designed to run for hours at a time, it is a machine which will satisfy the needs of gardeners looking to make garden mulch at a steady but humble pace.

But it takes time to find and remove twigs, gumballs etc, and you can't just dump a container of leaves in; you have to do it by handfuls. With 18 big trees and more than a few small ones...I may regret this purchase. For someone with less leaves it could be the perfect choice.

It has an electric motor and the settings are manual. It works very well if you don’t rush it or put too many sticks through it. It does wet leaves pretty well if you feed them in slowly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Review Rating provided by a verified purchaser
Date published: 2019-05-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performed as described I used the Flowtron shredder/mulcher to clean up my half acre property. I have several Norway Maple trees which drop very large leaves in tremendous quantity. I found the shredder performed very well in mulching the material, including wet clumps of leaves. The entire yard was finished in 4 hours using only 18 large recylable leaf bags. In past years, I have put 40 - 60 bags out for yard waste pick-up. The only negative comments I have are that the stand is too low for the large leaf bags. I improvised and set it on two blue bins which provided the exact height needed. Also, the shredding lines do wear down quickly if you have any twigs, branches or plant stems in your material. They are pretty easy to replace, but a stronger line would last longer. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with the performance of this item and for the money, it sure saved my back.
