Bosch AXT 25 Drum Garden Shredder
Domestic garden shredders maximum shredding diameter is based on shredding green waste and not hard branches. Please note that brown waste (branches /twigs) reduce the maximum diameter the shredder is capable of. As a rule half the size of the maximum diameter for a guide to maximum brown waste (branches /twigs) the shredder will be capable of. Also note that shredder performance if affected by how much moisture is in waste being shredded. You must not attempt to shred wet waste in electric shredders.

This unit is solidly built, reasonably quiet and looks very impressive. It is the second bosch shredder i have purchased and just like the previous it is limited on what it can shred. This i put down to a problem with the design. i have some large yucca trees that shed their leaves on a regular basis and these just wrap around the shredding mechanism. I end up having to chop thee up by hand. I tried to shred the trimmings from a large wisteria and these filled the gaps between the shredding plates and the unit stopped working. Unfortunately, it only seems to be happy with woody stems and i just don't have many of them. the process for cleaning/dislodging is straight forward, but time consuming when it happens every 3-4 minutes. The exit section under the shredder also becomes blocked if you try and put too much through the unit. i have lots of bosch products, which i am very happy with, but this is the last bosch shredder that i will purchase.
I'd read the various reviews on the Fredshed website which enabled me to make a decision on which type of shredder to choose.I've already reduced a massive pile tree and bush cuttings to one large bag full of mulch.As stated from the previous review, it struggled with more finer leafy folliage which tended to clog it up.However, once I had the cutter set perfectly against the metal plate it chewed through the branches up to an inch with ease. I also received a small discount by using the links on the Fredshed website.
It loves hard woody material up to 1 1/2 inches diameter, youll struggle to get soft or mainly leafy stuff through (which the Rapid doesnt have a problem with), but then soft stuff rots down fast enough anyway so not really a problem. The 22 & 25TC has a new type of cutter that is meant to overcome this, but I decided not to be the Guinea Pig and let someone else try out the new system. Recommended by Fredshed, worth a read before you commit to buying, if youve got time. Its the same toothed gear against a metal plate in a drum, as on its predecessor the AXT 2200HP Quiet, but with an extra 0.3kWs, which you can see in action on YouTube Best Electric Garden Shredder for Home use. That part works well, plenty of torque, and will chew through stuff that causes most/any other electric shredding machine to jam up, the AXT 2200HP Rapid included. The difference between this one and its predecessor is the built in collection box, and why Id only give it 4/5 stars, once the box gets about 1/2 full the mulch builds up under the drum and tends to get drawn back into the machine again, and starts blocking it. It would be better to let the mulch fall on the ground but you cant easily do this as without the box the bottom of the cutter is exposed to childrens fingers and dogs noses, and it has a safety transponder in the box that cuts out the motor if its not in place. Soft stems have a tendency to come out bruised rather than cut, but if woody material is only chewed and still in one length you have to wind in the metal plate against the drum with the drum turning until you can just hear metal against metal. The Hardened steel cutter will actually bed into the softer alloy plate, and the cutter is then set. All garden shredder tend to work better if you put the material through within a week of it being cut, as woody material dries out it gets much harder.
This is the worst piece of garden machinery i have ever bought. it is the second bosch shredder i have had & the design & its perfomance is distinctly worse than the original. 1 it is very unstable due to what appears to be a higher centre of gravity & wheels closer together than in the original. This made it difficult to wheel across my lawn. The problem was fixed by replacing the wheels with the wheels & axle from the original. 2 its shredding performance is limited & it frequently seems to regugitate partially shredded material . It is not as effective as its predecessor. It is not surprising that bosch have added a tilting feed feature to allow blockages to be cleared. 3 the "pusher" is usless. It only serve to compact a jam.
