Additional Information

Make Your Own Free, Nutrient-Rich Mulch with our Electric Leaf Shredder Mulcher

  • Reduce that pile of leaves down to 1/16th its size!
  • Shred leaves to use as mulch, add to the compost pile or bag up for municipal pick-up
  • Shredding leaves speeds up the decomposition process, releasing plant nutrients
  • Electric shredder is lightweight, efficient and easy to operate

Watch: Leaf Shredder  

Fall leaves contain loads of plant nutrients, but left in a big pile the leaves break down slowly and take up lots of room. Our leaf mulcher shreds the leaves into small pieces that decompose quickly, releasing the nutrients — perfect for mulching perennial beds, adding organic matter to your vegetable garden or tossing on the compost pile. The shredder dramatically reduces the volume of leaves, converting up to 16 bags of leaves into one bag of shredded leaves.

  • Generous 19" hopper
  • Powerful 13-amp motor
  • Bladeless mulching system uses heavy-duty trimmer line
  • Mulches up to 55 gallons of leaves per minute
  • Adjustable settings for wet or dry yard waste
  • Easy to transport; weighs just 13-1/4 lbs.
  • Includes 20 replacement cutting lines
  • Shreds leaves, grass clippings and even pine needles

An advanced motor cooling system diverts air from the shredded leaves, significantly reducing the amount of dust generated during use. The unit stores compactly; simply remove the legs and nest the motor inside the hopper. Made by Sun Joe®, known for their affordable, high-quality outdoor tools that simplify yard maintenance.

Used my shedder four times - 2 bags each time. It stopped working, I contacted the company and was told to register the product. I had, online and with the postcard. Representative blew me off and terminated my case after 4 days. No response when I asked for my case to be reopened.

      This machine has really decreased the amount of time and labor on getting up fall leaves on a half acre of land. I can use the shredded material for compost, or take it to the recycling center. I don't know how I missed this in the catalogue for many years...

      Pros

      • Easy to set up and use
      • Lightweight and portable
      • Multiple levels of shredding

      Cons

      • Sticks can get caught

      Best Uses

      • shredding leaves for composting or mulching

      Comments about : Leaf Shredder, 13 Amp:

      I love this shredder. I don't use a bag to catch the leaves, I just move it where I want to shred and use the leaves for mulch or compost. I'm a small woman and it's very lightweight and easy to move. I read other reviews about the adjustable legs not staying put, but I haven't had that issue at all. It shreds very finely on the highest setting, which is great for mulching. The directions say to wear a dust mask, and I highly recommend that. Large sticks can get stuck, and have to be removed, but it doesn't stop it from running. Sticks will also wear down your cutting line, but it's easy to replace. This purchase was well worth the money.

      • Moderately loud, dusty

      Best Uses

      • Small, frequent periods of light shredding

      Comments about : Leaf Shredder, 13 Amp:

      We own a large, heavy, loud shredder that will do lots but it is very hard to maneuver and use. I wanted something we could use quickly to shred our dry leaves for mulching our raised bed gardens. This shredder is perfect for our needs and easy for me to move on my own. We also have a high amount of pine needles. The fine setting works great on those while we can easily set the slide switch for a setting to work well on the leaves. All of our beds are now snuggly covered in leaf mulch for the winter with more set aside to add to our compost.

      Not bad for the price

      Comments about : Leaf Shredder, 13 Amp:

      I was surprised at how long it took to do only a small amount of leaves. The unit has to be fed very small batches of leaves at a time. Legs are easily adjusted to various heights. The actually shredding mechanism is great-- nice fine mulch for law and beds.

      Comments about : Leaf Shredder, 13 Amp:

      This product has been a life saver this fall! We have a large Sycamore tree in our yard that drops huge, thick leaves. In the past we would easily fill 12 bags or more with leaves and then try and dispose of them over several weeks in the garbage can. This leaf shredder reduced our bag count to three! It would have been less, but the three came over the course of several weeks of raking. I am very happy with this product and I would definitely buy it again!

      Great tool for the fall

      By PAgardener

      from Butler, PA

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Easy to use and store
      • Long-lasting cords are easy to change
      • Makes great leaf mulch
      • Reduced use of paper lawn bags by 2/3rds

      Cons

      • A little loud
      • Legs have a tendency to collapse

      Best Uses

      • Mulching fall leaves

      Comments about : Leaf Shredder, 13 Amp:

      Overall, this is a great tool if you have a lot of leaves to dispense with in the fall. It mulches different grades of coarseness and works even if the leaves are thick (oaks) or wet. You have to go slowly when feeding the leaves in by the handful - patience is the key. Even with the slow feed, we rake and mulch leaves much faster than raking and filling bags. We spread the mulch in our landscape and garden beds and even donated four bags to a public pollinator garden. The legs can slowly collapse if the bag fills too heavily to one side or if the person feeding the leaves leans/rests on it. Otherwise, it is sturdy. It is also easy to use and store.

      Comments about : Leaf Shredder, 13 Amp:

      Our town has a new policy where we just rake leaves to the boulevard and they take them away, no more bags. This is fine if we do not have windy weather. This new shredder, with the various settings makes quick work of all types of leaves from small maple to tough oak. My husband found using an empty gallon jug to help "feed" the leaves down the shoot works very well. We only have a small mound of mulch to place at the boulevard instead of dozens of black bags. It is light weight and easy to use.
