Comments about Electric Leaf Shredder:

Used the leaf shredder to create leaf mulch for my roses. It would have been easier to use my lawnmower the way I have in the past. The shredder becomes very quickly over-loaded and cuts the same leaves at the bottom of the funnel over and over without releasing them and does not circulate to the uncut leaves. You end up having to either load the funnel in very small amounts which causes them to fall through the funnel and not be cut enough, or having to hand-mix the leaves with a thick stick and shake the cut leaves out of the bottom to release them.

Comments about Electric Leaf Shredder:

I just got this & am using it for the first time today. This product is extremely easy to set up, use, and move around-I'm pretty strong, but I think just about anybody who gardens could move this. No need to bag the shredded leaves-I just set it up in a place in my beds I want to mulch & shredded away until I was ready to move to another area. Took a rake to spread it a bit. My only complaint is that the cutting lines MUST be changed frequently. I've used it for 2 hours now & just put in my 3d set. The mulch is noticeably finer the first couple of loads. Do not pack the funnel. It doesn't work as well. Curious what the life of this will be. It's getting some pretty heavy use here in the next few weeks, as I've got several hundred bags of leaves stored up.

      Comments about Electric Leaf Shredder:

      Just tried for the first time today and mulched about 15 bags of leaves in a short time. Previous reviewers have accurately described the design and operation.

      Please note that your leaf mulch will not drop neatly into a trug as pictured. I put a heavy duty polypro leaf bag inside the stand and wrapped it over the top of the frame. This worked well. When you operate the mulcher, leaf debris flies all over the place---some out the top of the hopper.

      This is a very dusty job so wear eye protection, a dust mask and perhaps hearing protection. Wet leaves will clog the hopper but can be cleared easily. As the strings wear down, so does the mulching capability. The strings are easy to replace.

              Comments about Electric Leaf Shredder:

              I got one of these last year. I haul it out 2-3 times a year when leaves accumulate. It shreds them down into mulch like a champ.

              It works on the principle of an upside-down weed whacker with a hopper on top for receiving the leaves. Easy-peasy. It does a sensational job on dry leaves. Less well on wet leaves. Can't take more than the smallest, driest twigs. Anything larger keeps the leaves from feeding down into the trug and breaks off the nylon trimmers.

              Jams are pretty rare unless we're talking wet leaves or a lot of sticks. When they do happen they're easy to clear out.

              There are a couple things worth noting:

              • The replacement nylon trimmers from Worx are very difficult to find which is a bummer as they need frequent replacement. OTOH, installing new ones is pretty easy and found that slightly larger gauge ones from the hardware/garden store held up better. I suggest cutting them at an acute angle to get them to feed into the mechanism.

              • Leaves come out with a furious gust. Wouldn't work with the trug pictured but I put one trug upside-down and a second one upside-right on top of it so that the opening is up at the bottom of the motor.

              • The quality and appearance of the resulting mulch is excellent.

                Comments about Electric Leaf Shredder:

                It works to reduce the big sycamore leaves into finer particles for my compost pile. These leaves usually take forever to compost, but this leaf shredder helps to create a better compost. Little sticks and too many damp leaves will cause build-up to occur around the edges of its cone.

                  Comments about Electric Leaf Shredder:

                  I shredded about 10 bags of oak leaves as soon as I got it. It reduces leaf volume as stated, with a consistent size mulch as long as the nylon filaments are in shape--filaments shortened and shredded by twigs produce less consistent size mulch. I replaced the nylon filments twice. The small twigs that inevitably come with raked leaves went through the mulcher without jamming it, but they do cause the nylon filaments to shred and shorten--the more twigs, the more often you need to replace the filaments. Nevertheless, nylon filament replacement is very easy, there are many included with the mulcher. Do follow the directions and use a dust mask when using this. Finally, I really like how compactly it stores in my garage.

                      Comments about Electric Leaf Shredder:

                      This machine was a headache to use. It is large and heavy, difficult to move and store, and painfully noisy.
                      You will need eye protection, hearing protection, long gloves, and a dust mask.
                      This is basically a string trimmer in a megaphone, and was very slow to use. It takes only leaves, a small handful at a time. We were careful. My husband, who has always been a big user of big noisy machines, hated it. Neither one of us wants to try it a second time.
                      Right now, it dominates the patio (it's just under four feet high), and we don't know what to do with it.
