When working properly Flymo Pac A Shred Shredder chops even quite thick branches into 1 inch pieces, which are very conveniently collected in the collection bin.
Not robust enough for the task.
I've had two in the last month and both have failed for the same reason. The machine uses a bladed cog, which cuts against a striking plate. The plate is adjusted with an Allen key so that it it is kept in contact with the the cutting cog. Unfortunately after a day's use with branches close to the maximum thickness the adjustment mechanism gives up the ghost allowing branches to pass between the cog and the plate virtually unscathed. The first one was replaced by B&Q. I took the second one to an authorised Flymo service centre and on their advice got B&Q to give me a refund. I'm now in the market for a machine that works.
