Bosch Garden Shredder AXT Rapid 2200 (2200 W, 230 Volt System, Cutting Capacity 40 mm, in Carton Packaging)
About this deal
It was handy that once you put in the longer, smaller branches eg bramble, leylandii and laurel which had some side shoots and leaves, it pulls them down into the shredder which was nice feature. However as the aim is to provide material to be composted, this is excellent stuff, because all the bruising and chopping provides the edges/wounds that help to break it down quickly.
As soon as you put a branch into the shredder the automatic feed takes the material down so keep fingers away from the feed area and don't hold onto the branches; if the branches stops, then use the push stich provided; works very well indeed; the machine will take it through. It works like a big food processor so I recommend having a spare blade as it will blunt at some stage.Bosch was created in 1886 in Stuttgart, Germany by Robert Bosch who formed the business to specialise in the manufacture of electronic components. inevitably, and with the best will in the world, a few nasties (stones mainly) tend to get into the mix.
The smaller pieces also take up much less space than the Ryobi version which cut into larger pieces - great for chip wood applications. I had a few stones, but nevertheless I reckon the blade continued doing its job perfectly for the first 2-3 hours.

I have used it intensively over the last week to do about 20 hours total shredding of a mixture of woody and green plant material (which I intend to compost). Here is an innovation too, it is a single blade not two seperate blades, and so much easier to turn over.

Use of this thing is simple and very quick, it does slightly self feed, but the design of the hopper combined with the use of the paddle that comes with it makes life simple. For which the included plastic paddle seems light, but is actually very good at helping to feed through branches.
