Brilliant, clever design
Robust, and simply murders pruned branches and other woody cuttings
So easy to use and store
I did a lot of general research when I purchased the Flymo Pac A Shred shredder, but I could not find any reviews, as it is a new product. There were plenty of other makes that got lousy reviews though. I found a couple of sites where they had a video of the Flymo shredder in action, and I liked the easy store and built-in collection box, plus the specs suggested that the shredder was pretty powerful and robust. So I took a risk and bought one online from Woolworths for about £170.
Well, I am amazed by the performance of this shredder!! If you can get the material into the feeder it will make short work of it. The reverse and cut out have never been used, as I have yet to find anything it can't cope with. I am just delighted with it! The motor is pretty quiet, and the collection box feature and fold down storage features work like a dream. You can stick 3 meter branches in it and they are swallowed in no time, and shredding is a quick process. The safety circuitry is clever, and I really can not fault this excellent product.
The shredder has surpassed my expectations by a considerable margin, and although I have a lot of bushes and trees that will need pruning and trimming over the coming months, I am no longer phased by this potential task!
