Bosch AXT RAPID 2200 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.

Needed a shredder that dealt with "greenery" without clogging up and this unit is very good. I find the trade off is greenery vs branches and this one is good for greenery eg conifer cuttings.
I needed a shredder that would deal with conifer and weeping willow branches as my other shredder (bosch also but with a archimedes type screw that is very good for wood but useless for greenery) would jam when trying to shred greenery. This unit is very good allround and produces a very fine "shredding" suitable for mulching. Too early to say how long the blades last.
Unlike some other shredders, this one produces fine chippings suitable for mulching and quick conversion to compost. Fine bendy twigs aren't dealt with too well but anything reasonably firm or over about 5mm diameter gets nicely shredded. Green wood up to 30mm is devoured really easily. It's a little bit loud and i prefer to put some tissue in my ears but i'm probably a bit sensitive. The blade is fairly easy to remove for sharpening (a simple sharpening stone works well). The wheels look a little bit on the light side but it seems movable enough.
Purchased whilst on discount promotion and happy with the shredder. Came with additional blade which do seem to loose their sharpens after a while so best get a spare if you are doing a lot of shredding like i did.
Purchased for son who had a large amount of branch debris to chip. All went very smoothly for several hours without problems. When some wood was put through which was not absolutely dry, the chipper soon clogged up but was easily cleared. The blade blunted after probably 3 hours and as it is reversible it was changed over to complete the job. All in all a good product.
Met all my expectations
Have put part of a privet hedge through it inc lots of woody stuff. Performed very well.Gobbles stuff up. No jams yet.I'm looking forward to getting a lot of useful work out of it. Early days yet but very pleased so far.
Seems very good - very fast and copes with waste from a medium sized suburban garden very well
Excellent purchase. Does everything you would expect at a sensible price. There are cheaper shredders available but with this you get bosch quality plus a spare blade. The blade is easy to sharpen using either a sharpening stone or grinder(should the occasional bit of wire be wrapped round a branch and go unnoticed). Do not bother buying the optional bag, get a one ton builders bag and stand the whole machine in that. When you have finished shredding lift the shredder out and the waste is ready bagged for transport.
Very happy with product - it struggles with anything over 25mm but i must i had anticpated this. overall a very good buy and i am pleased with it
Very prompt delivery of a reliable brand. The price was right also
Previous review somehow got muddled with the review for the larger bosch turbine shredder that we also own. so, the 2200 quiet shredder is brilliant for finer stuff and produces a chopped output that will compost easily and well. runs for hours without problems. the quiet shredders use a spinning blade a bit like a food processor. take care not to put very hard 'dry' wood stems or soil/debris into the machine. Blade will become blunt if you do. brilliant piece of kit.
Terrific, tough, and reliable. takes heavy stock up to about 40mm with ease. very 'wet' wood can occasionally get caught up in the turbine, but easily poked out with a strong stick (switch off power first of course). finer, 'green' material handle well, but sometimes makes strings instead of shreddings. (you need a bosch 'quiet shredder for that if you have a lot of it) overall, brilliant piece of kit. would definitely buy again, but it looks like it will last a long time.
Has been satisfactory so far but not been used much yet
A really good product. There was a short delay in delivery because the product was out of stock but i appreciated being kept informed about the revised delivery date.
I have only just started to use this item and i have no experience of using a shredder before. it jams rather more than i had hoped but i think this will improve as i learn how to feed it better and what it can easily cope with. the machine is very well built, easy to use, safe and light to move around the garden. it is a pity that a bag is not supplied with it.
On first use seems very effective but really need the bag to prevent spillage. quite noisy.
So far the shredder has dealt with everything i have thrown at it; no blockages. a bit on the noisy side but not too bad.
Works excellently as long as the blade is sharp. I resharpen my blade either on a bench grinder or with a rotary mower sharpener although this is not strictly recommended. If you do not do this, blade replacement is going to be costly. Noisy enough to wear ear defenders. I see no reason why this machine should not give many years service.
Only used once but seems to do the job ok
My previous shredder was a bosch quiet shredder with the corkscrew cutter. solidly built but i got fed up with it keep clogging. i've used this one a couple of times so far and it's much better - certainly quicker, much easier to feed with softer materials using the wide thin plunger, and not too noisy. Hasn't clogged yet either. Plus it's cheaper than the quiet types. Tends to be a bit messy at the discharge end (ooh- er missus) as stuff tends to fly out at all angles, probably ok with the proper bag attached though, shame they don't supply that with it.
This is a very good machine that delivers good results.It takes fair sized branches, bigger than expected and it takes a little effort to feed them in but can be a little scary when it snatches them from you and has a bit of a 'kick back'. when it comes to noise,this machine is not the quietest but neither is it too loud, depending on where you are using it. it would be improved with a collection box as it creates a fair bit of 'dust'. all in all i feel that it is a 'value for money' machine that delivers well shredded material. another drawback is no collection box
Only used it 3 times to date but it did the job. not quite so good with very thin twigs, larger ones are reduced to finer shreddings? Haven't tries branches with leaves yet. not too noisy. i bought this type of shredder rather than the crusher type as i wanted a light weight machine easily carried by car and it fits the bill.
So far works a treat and easy to use
Extremely powerful - yet not at all noisy, and a valuable addition to my garden shed.
This replaced my ALKO of many years and so far have found it to be as good. It handles all the usual brush, foliage and small branches with no problems. It is neat , light and easy to move around and stores in the garden shed easily. The only points I would make are a. The low height means the chippings back up too quickly and you have to keep your eyes on the bag. b. When removing the front for cleaning there are too many nooks and crannies in which material collects and therefore I have to use a scewdriver to clear it. I am happy overall with the machine and it is typically BOSCH, i.e. Good Value.
I received my shredder in double quick time at a very good price and would recommend to anyone. Thankyou regards Allan
I did a lot of research and yet the product did not do what i thought it should from the reviews i read and the product blurb it doesn't chew anything like 40mm and clogs easily i can't understand how some of these reviewers goit this performance from this machine - maybe mine was duff tooled up were good to accept a return and i have let bosch know that it just doesnt do what it says on the can be careful you are sure your purchase will not leave you having to spend ages sorting out the limited stuff that it will chew up and still facing the choice of burning - a visit to the dump or a long term compost project
Customer Questions & Answers
Q : The AXT 2200 Rapid Shredder is a great garden tool and it does most of what I ask of it quickly and efficiently. Why though has it for the second time started to give me problems. When I start it now it spins into action then immediately cuts out. The first time this happened Bosch did a repair under warranted. But it's happened again. Strange thing is it was working fine when I last used it. So what is wrong with it?
A : I would recommend checking the microswitches as if these are not activated due to debris or the unit not being put together properly then you may the unit keeps cutting out where one of the switches is being activated.
