Guide for Buying a Garden shredder

A garden shredder is very useful tool to have when it comes to cleaning up your lawn. You can feed it all your twigs branches grass and leaves to the shredder to become mulch or compost. This is a very good way to stay environmentally friendly while sorting out your garden and there are a few different types of shredder that will work well for different materials.

Decide on impact or Crushing shredders

Impact shredders have the advantage of being less expensive but are a lot louder. These use a spinning blade similar to a food processor and you just feed the debris into the machine. Crushing shredders are quieter but more expensive. These models are self feeding and pull debris into the machine to crush it against a steel plate. Consider the type of material you are shredding when choosing as crushing shredders are better against heavier materials.

Gas or Electric

In this case electric shredders are the cheaper options but you will need to make sure the cord is long enough to move around the yard. Gas shredders have more power with the advantage of having no cord but they can require more maintenance and you will need to keep the tank filled with gas.

Check the Specifics

Pay attention to cleaning instructions and also check the limitations on the model you buy and sales associates can help you find what these are.
