Don't drag bag after bag of leaves to the curb, then pay
to have them hauled away. The Deluxe Shredder converts eleven
bags of leaves into one tidy bag of nutritious mulch. Most
shredders can only handle dry leaves, but this deluxe shredder will also
shred pine needles, grass clippings and paper, wet or dry! Variable load electric motor has extra power when needed. Hopper adjusts to different positions. Built-in bungee cord to attach a trash bag. Extra cutting lines included.

Worked great for 1 season, bearing wear

About Me Do-It-Yourself
Comments about Deluxe Electric Leaf Shredder:
The bearing, which keeps the shaft coming up from the motor from rattling, wore out and cause the thing to constantly freeze up. Once the bearing wore out, it took minutes for the thing to suddenly become a worthless heap of plastic and what little steel actually is part of the unit.Consequently we are looking for something made of steel from this point on. We are not buying another one of these units, though it gave exactly what we wanted while it was actually working.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We are so sorry about this reviewer’s experience. We reached out to this reviewer to replace/refund, etc.

The leaf shredder is a must have.
from Gainesville, VA
I use the shredder primarily for shredding leaves and small annual flowering plants when they are finished. It is so easy to use. No pulling strings or cranking anything. Just plug it in, turn the switch on and you're in business. I love this little gadget. Can't wait for all the leaves to fall so I can really put it to use. I haven't found anything, yet, that I don't like about it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easy to use once I got it together. Very helpful to put leaves back on garden immediately.

About Me Casual Do-It-Yourselfer
I went through 2 of these in 2 years. The motor is not strong enough. The 2nd one was sent free.Also the base clamp holding the 2 plastic pipes together broke very early requiring the use of clamps to make the base stay together.My recommendation is not to buy this unless you love aggravation.
It does what I wanted it to do.
from Mt Crawford, Va.
I used it to clean-up fallen winter leaves (which should have been cleaned-up last fall) and it did an excellent job. It may be slow, but I'm old enough to handle slow.

worth the moeny
By Gaia the Gardener
from Pleasanton, CA
I didn't find it difficult to put this together, although there was a spot where I could have used another pair of hands. It's noisy and might fling debris in your face, so wear safety glasses and hearing protection. I managed to misplace both the user maual and the extra line that came with it, but I found the maual on line and replace the line with trimmer line without any problem.
I would buy this leaf shredder again

Use this finely shred leaves after they are mowed once. Does a great job and allowed me to put all of my yards leaves into my compost bin.
Shred Leaves for Loads of Compost Salad!
from Milton, NH
It shreds mounds of leaves for me to use all over the garden and has increased the earthworms & soil texture. It only has small space underneath for shredded leaves so I now have a barrel to put it on (lined with a bag). The stand wraps around the barrel. It's a little awkward to arrange the cord but it cuts down the amount of time to change bags.
It Really Does That!
By Mermaid and Riviera
from Burke, VA
We raked the white ash leaves, Kwanzan cherry leaves, and our neighbors sycamore leaves into piles, and made short work of mincing them down to small pieces that we spread over our veggie garden, rose garden and foundation plants. Only bagged the leaves we could not use any more. It was easy to replace the cutting strings too. We are very happy with the results.
By Susan the Gardener
from Longmont, CO
It takes huge piles of leaves and shreds them into tiny piles. Just what I wanted. The lawn mower wasn't good enough to chop up the leaves for efficient composting. Now the leaf particles are much much smaller and will compost better and I won't have to deal with huge piles of waiting-to-compost leaves in the garden. Easier to till into garden too. My worm factory also appreciates the shredded leaves.
