Quiet (partly due to time disassembling the thing to unclog it!)
Powerful. Does cope well with quite large diameter prunings as longs as there are hardly any leaves on them.
Clogs up EVERY time I use it!
Cannot unclog it without taking it apart!
This Bosch AXT 2000 HP 200w Electric is a very clever machine. If it detects you have more than five leaves per pruning then the automatic clogging mechanism operates within minutes! in the hope it will clear itself you might try putting put a couple of larger leaf-free pieces in. Unfortunately at this stage these usually go in the top but with nothing coming out the bottom! Then you're really in trouble! The only way to clear it is to dismantle the whole darn thing (3 times so far this year). Only bought it last year but have wasted so much time trying to make it work for more than a few minutes by removing most of the leaves, alternating types of wood, thickness of cutting etc. leaving prunings to dry out first etc. I have now given up. I am going to take it up the tip with the next lot of prunings.
