Sturdy build, heavy duty plastic feeder and powerful motor.
Haven't discovered any yet.
Really did my homework on buying a shredder. It was a toss up between the Flymo and the Bosch AXT 2200HP. I was outbid on Ebay for the Bosch and then spotted a brand new, still-in-the-box BIN Flymo Pac A Shred Shredder for £130 being sold by someone in the next town.
Used it today for three hours and I was amazed by the way the machine gobbled up the branches and cuttings I fed it. The plastic collection box is really a bonus - easy to unship and transfer the mulch into plastic bags. The motor won't switch on unless the box is correctly replaced and locked into position.
I'm really delighted with the Flymo and I've just bought a cover for it. I would not hesitate to recommend this machine to anyone willing to pay a bit more for a quality item.
