Reasonably quiet and eats almost anything.
Not so much a bad point as something to be aware of; this is more a 'chopper' than a shredder. It does not shred or chip but chops everything into 1/2-1" lengths.
This is more a 'chopper' than a shredder. It does not shred or chip but chops everything into 1/2-1" lengths. Branches, for example, are chopped and crushed rather than chipped whilst thin material will pass through virtually untouched.
On the positive side, it will reduce branches to a pile of chopped pieces in a trice: if you can get it into the jaws , it will chop it.
We were very pleased with the ease of use and the speed of with which the Flymo Pac A Shred can handle an afternoons pruning but disappointed at how coarse the product was. We thought it was too coarse for mulching (unless you are on a grand scale) and think it will take years for the hard material to compost down.
