Found 5th Aug 2014
Saw this in the clearance sale today - Telford branch. There were 3, though myself and another chap took 1 each.

Good reviews on Amazon (which is the link above).

Everywhere else at least £150+. Nice bit of kit for £71. I have loads of conifers and hedge materials to chomp! Should hugely reduce the volume and lighten the load for going to the tip and composting in a heap.

They had some of these at Bradford Euroway earlier today if that helps anyone.

I had one once, blade was totalled after a bit of use. Not bad for the price but don't expect it to last.

In uttoxeter st this price as well

I tried correcting someone's punctuation the other day and the question was answered literally

These noisy "spinning blade" shredders are horrible to use - you won't use it.
The "quiet" type are far better and even a pleasure to use.
B&Q sell one of the cheaper ones of this type ,now reduced -- £98

Anyone else bored of these B&Q. There should just be one post with a list of things to look out for in the BBQ sale. Chance are only very few will be able to get these!

to plug into off corse whot else wood eye meen

These have an excellent review on argos and amazon and 4 out of 5 stars elsewhere. I bought one today after a bit of umming and arring but at £71 and with a big garden if it saves less trips to the tip with my trailer then it will be worth it. Also if you use a bit of common sense you can have the blade sharpened at minimal cost. If anyone knows any joiners / joinery companies then ask them where they get their blades sharpened. Even carbide tipped blades can be sharpened and repaired. I work for a joinery company and all of our wood cutting equipment is sharpened by a local machine tool cutting company which includes saw blades, planer blades and even router bits.

Further to my post above I just popped into my other b and q store where this was marked at £179.99. I told the manager of my deal from the other store so he scanned the ticket and it came up at £30. Yes 30 quid so I bought 2. Now that is a bargain so one I bought earlier will be going back.
