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
  • Quieter than gasoline-powered shredders, with no noxious fumes
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.

Should have purchased sooner

Comments about : Leaf Shredder, 13 Amp:

This worked great in mulching leaves and small sticks. I have wonderful mulch that I spread around the garden. No issues with this product at all. I do not know why I waited so long to buy. Makes raking leaves less cumbersome and useful all at the same time. Great product!

      I borrowed a friend's Gardener's Supply shredder - liked it so much I ordered myself one.
      It's always nice to have free shipping!

      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.

      I have owned this piece of equipment in the past. It was used so much I burned the motor up after years of use. Just need another one to get the job done.

          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...

          • 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.

          Exactly what I hoped it would be

          By KDH

          from Denver, NC

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Fast
          • Lightweight
          • Portable
          • Thorough shredding

          Cons

          • Can't shred wet leaves or twigs
          • Easy to overload, can stop feeding
          • Legs can vibrate out of adjustment
          • 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.
