Used this last weekend [late-April] to clean up leaves from last Fall. Filled 16 lawn-leaf bags that otherwise would have been about 40+ bags the old way of cramming leaves into the bags. Even worked reasonably well with soggy leaves, but took a but more time. Went through the plastic string that came with the unit fast, but recommend just buying a spool of weed-eater string and cutting to length. Only wish I had this many, many seasons earlier.

Sumec Leaf Shredder
My son gave me the Yard-Force Leaf Shredder for Christmas this past year. Because it was not the season for yard work, I stored it in the green house- until three weeks ago. This leaf shredder is the real deal. It is easy to operate, well engineered, convenient to store, and is a value as well. However, I do want to warn the user to watch out for large twigs and sticks that can break the cutting line! We have mulched two large gardens and each time I use the machine I seem to be better at the task. I want to add that customer service is also excellent. Next I will try pine needles!

Crunches up leaves very well. Don't let twigs get in with your leaves, but extra ties are included when they break. I'm using it to build a leaf compost pile from the constant leaves that blow into my yard from neighbors.

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.

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.

We bought this late in the fall and ground up many bags of needles. We liked it so well that we bought one for our daughter for Christmas.
