Wet leaves. How well does it work with wet leaves? Do wet leaves clog it?

It will shred wet leaves if you feed them through slowly. If you jam the hopper full of the wet leaves, it will clog.

It would probably work if it’s not to heavy for the motor to get the rpms up to the speed to shred. It may void your warranty though.

I bought a new house in the winter. I didn’t know there was no grass. Only leaves and brush. This and the Sunjoe chipper cleaned years of leaves in short order. I love this mulcher.

Pine Straw Mulch Happiness!
Customer review from snowjoe.com logo
This product was great for my project! I had another brand for several years and loved it too, but it died. After much ado, I chose the SunJoe to replace it. It has several features and more power than the other. The twine is so much easier to change - no tools needed. My whole need for this product is about pine straw. No other reviews seemed to talk about pine straw mulching. I have only reviewed two other things in my life and one of those was a vacation location. I have twenty 100' tall huge pine trees in my yard. I decided to use pine straw to make a pathway in my new wonderful raised bed garden. It took a few days but it is wonderful - almost like a carpet! You have to set the setting on "coarse" instead of "pine straw" or it would take forever and more twine than you could stand to use. My pathway is 84' x 3' x 2" thick. I did have to change the twine for every trash bag full of mulch. And you much be patient - go slow and put a big handful in at a time. It takes about 20 minutes to fill a bag. I am female and 5'10" tall. After each bag I changed the twine and rested and encouraged myself to do another one. It's a slow process. But - I LOVE IT!

So far excellent yard tool
Customer review from snowjoe.com logo
Received it, had some problems installing legs is about it. Runs great, goes thru cutting lines quick especially when there are small twigs in pile. Used two days in a row, only problem was dirty power switch, used air compressor to blow out area and fixed it.

This product works very well for the price. I used a 32 qt Rubbermaid trash can from Home Depot to collect leaves (which is quicker than trying to fill bags) and would basically just pour them in slowly into the funnel. If the funnel backs up just use your hand to push the leaves thru the opening. I also used a 20 qt trash can to catch the shredded leaves under the machine. You can adjust the legs to fit over the trash can. The only thing that would make this product better would be if it had steel blades instead of weed eater line that has to be replaced after several loads of leaves. Overall I highly recommend this product for the price and for shredding leaves into very small pieces for composting.

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.

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.

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.

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

This is a nice solid product from Sun Joe. I own their 40 volt rechargeable 18 inch snow blower and it works extremely well, So when I saw this 110v shredder it was no problem to choose it as they make a great product. Unpacked from box and assembles in less than 15 minutes, No tools required. Ran a Heavy duty outdoor grounded extension cord plugged into an exterior GFCI receptacle and turned it on. I tested an assortment of old tomato plants, leaves, grass and grass plants, pine needles etc…. If you read the directions they recommend using 2 handfuls at a time, if you follow that plan it works great. You can bog it down if you over feed it or force too much down its throat in one shot. I used a 2 foot stick I found in the yard so I wouldn’t have to push the leaves down with my own hands. It took me about 20 minutes to mulch the pile in the pictures into a nice fine mulch which I am going to mix into my tomato garden before I plant this year ,It’s a great composter… Overall a very high quality product with a high rating from me. Operates quietly with the electric motor and no pulling a cord to start it, also has a circuit breaker so its overload protected. Thanks to the JOE people for another quality product.

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.
