Anyone else think this was a funky BBQ when they first saw it??

Great price. I have the S&J one from Argos which seems to be the same sorry of thing. Does a cracking job. That one is currently £30 quid more but a 3 year warranty instead of 2.

very similar to the one from homebase but they are qualcast 2800w. Got 2 from ebay homebase on the 50% discount misprice few years ago. I think was meant to be 5%. I find it useful
I have one of these. As long as you adjust the blade correctly it great. Had mine for a few years now and still working with no issues.
Hubby bought me one for my birthday, very good but I think it's really more of a chipper than a shedder. (although I don't use it to make chips!)

Had a similar one from wickes a few years ago and it didn't like anything with foliage left on, and you have to manually feed it which gets tedious, store it, it's just not always worth the hassle.

The chunks come out relatively large to compost so you may as well take it straight to the tip. The one I had cut branches into about 2"-3" sticks

No idea if this is any better
Mine chews into reasonably fine bits - not as fine as a high speed shredder. Good for fitting more into my garden wheelie bin.

This is more of a "chewer" than shredder.

Just an fyi that might save someone a bit of hassle

Got one of these a while back and I could never get it to run because it kept tripping the rcd. I don't know very much about electrics but I looked into it at the time and it should have been ok. However Screwfix tried it in their shop for me and it worked alright so I guess my house is the problem, they accepted the return with no hassle.

Might be wise to run it for a second before you fully assemble everything just to make sure it'll work for you.

Was it the RCD it was tripping or the trip fuse?It's quite high power at 2800kw so if it's on a 16amp fuse and something else is running say at 1kw or more at the same time it could easily trip the fuse.

Rcd from what I remember but it was a good while ago so that could be wrong. I do remember going round the house turning everything off and trying plugs on different circuits but nothing helped.
Is this gas or do u need Charkole?
Had one of these. Awesome with sticks of all sorts. Not the best if you just want to feed it leaves (mix it with a stick and it grabs everything)
I've got one of these. It works fine for chewing rather than shredding although it does need an element of manual intervention to get odd shaped branches through.

It's quite quiet and if I wasn't relatively close to my local tip I would probably use it a lot more than I do.

I think I bought it last time it was on offer as a bit of an impulse buy without really thinking how often I would actually use it.

To be honest if I divided what I paid by how many times I have used it, it would probably have worked out cheaper to pay someone to cut it up by hand.
I have the Aldi version of this that I picked up for about £60 2 years ago. It's been used very heavily and hasn't missed a beat.
I too have the Aldi version, in use for a number of years. I find it ideal for a supply of brown waste to blend with the masses of lawn clippings I generate which otherwise would go smelly and not compost well. It's certainly helped improve my clay soil.
Ordered one, thanks OP. Got lots of cut branches etc to put through it and will hopefully use the chippings for mulch -- win win!
