Ageed, these small shredders are only good for twigs, hire one for a couple of days
#4
I am tempted but think they're having trouble shifting these - have watched the price go from £108 to £87 to now £78 in the space of a few days!!!

Having said that, might be worth it for a twin blade shredder. Even if it's only an electric one. Just a shame there are no reviews. Have seen reviews for the other Draper Shredders and they don't exactly make convincing reading.

Has anyone got/bought one of these????
#5
Good price for a shredder, however only suitable for light domestic use I would think.
#6
Price has dropped again on this - £71 now! Maybe next week it'll be £63?
#7
Price is £64 now - decided to take the plunge as can't see it dropping too much more. Amazon don't do their price drop policy anymore, rather annoyingly.

Still, if it drops by another £10 - £15 (doubtful!) then I'll just re-order and send the other one back under distance selling regs!

I'll be the first to review it too!

So close too.:)

Ha ha - yeah 8)

I reckon it's bottomed out now though, would be v.surprised if it goes much lower.
#10
Draper prices are fiction, these things are made in china for a few quid but £64 seems reasonable.
One thing to be aware of is if you have a big garden a days shredding will take the edge off the blades. Make sure you can get spare blades before buying.
#11
Yeah good shout about the spare blades. I think £64 is very reasonable when you look at pretty much everywhere else selling this for double the price, mind you it's only relevant if it's actually any good!

You are stupid if you buy a noisy shredder like this instead of a "quiet"shredder. This type will give you headache, piff off the neighbours and is a pain to keep feeding with branches.
The quiet type use a cog or spiral cutter-like a mincer-which pulls the branches in once started and are as quiet as a washing machine. Available on ebay for £100 up new(b-grade) instead of £200+ at the diy sheds.
They can cope with stuff about as thick as your thumb (forget 40mm)
#14
I had one of these and i found it was useless for anything thicker than a pencil to be honest. very easy to jam it too. I ended up giving it to my father in law to see if he could make use of it. Its been in his garage for 3 years... enough said i think
#15
I didn't know these things existed.

I recently cut down about 8 wheely bins worth of branches from the back garden. Whenever it came to load up the bin, I just manually broke down everything into a bundle and chucked them in. Sometimes I'd have to saw (or drop kick) the bigger branches, but the time spent on this was less than 1% of the total time gardening. I can't really see the point of this at all. My shed is already full of junk I hardly use. Industrial shredding (with industrial grade equipment) is one thing, but for occasional use in your garden??...

...Hands are free (unless you've chopped them off using a garden shredder).

I'm an Arborist with a qualification in brushwood chipper operations (big noisy petrol ones) amongst others. I could go on for a long time about why you shouldn't get one of these but inevitably people will buy them so I'll say a few words. Forget the 40mm, this will only be useful for very small softwood branches and the usefulness will decrease rapidly as the motor and blades begin to wear. The branches this would be most suited for would be of the size to just fold and put in a black plastic bag anyway.

For a few £ more you could get a decent make like Onkyo. Walk away...

I agree. I bought a Bosch quiet shredder many years ago for about £300 - my only powered piece of garden equipment (though I don't have a lawn) - and it's been very useful and reliable. I'm sure there are other makes around nowadays for less which are just as good. There's no need for a petrol model unless your profession is chopping down trees, but mine has a 2.5kW induction motor IIRC.

Because if you'd used one of these, the waste would have been compacted to a fraction of the size, it would have been in the form of chips which after a bit of seasoning give you free mulch for your borders, and if you've got things like brambles or climbing roses to deal with then you'll be much less at risk of splinters and lacerations.

my B&D one is a quiet one....its still 90db though and mices the branches uses cogs....its ok but id still rather hire a petrol one if cheap enough or buy a petrol one....i bet these draper ones are over 110db

Hmmm...... duly noted.

Hamster.... you're off the hook. Order cancelled! :p


Yeah - cancelled my one too. :p Sounds like it might be more trouble than it's worth, although would be interested to see if anyone here buys one and how they get on with it. I think it's very easy for people on here to be a bit sniffy about something they haven't even bought - but by the same token don't want to end up with a pile of junk, in the absence of any specific product reviews!!!

ihave about 20+ trees in my garden.....i bought one because trimming the brances off these trees up to about 10 ft from the ground meant i had about 40ftx20ft of branches stacked 10 ft high to cut...it would take me a week to cut them!! shredder took about 2-3 hours and cut them to small sizes.....the only manual labour was to feed them in and move the bags when full and manually cut anything over 50mm wide

there is no way id want to do that job manually every year

partly agree..my B&D one is much better than this garbage but id still rather buy/rent a petrol one if i really needed it

renting is still a good option as the petrol ones can be massive even if it seems alot to rent you then dont have to store it long term (most people would only use these 1-2 times a year anyway)...my neighbour has a petrol shredder and it takes up 50% of one of his garages

No idea what the decibel figures are on mine, but there's no need to raise voices when holding a conversation while using it, and that level of noise is completely unobtrusive. Maybe some of the "quiet" ones are significantly quieter than others? Does yours contain an induction motor?
