General Comments
Purchased a Flymo Pac A Shred about 16 months ago and at first it did everything asked of it. Removed it from the shed this summer to dispose of the garden waste and it wouldn't shred. All it produced was a long line of half chopped garden waste. After watching it work for a while I noticed that the plastic cover around the adjusting screw was pulsating in and out. Upon investigation I found that the motor housing where the adjusting screw for the cutting plate threads through was broken and a star shaped piece of aluminium housing had become detached. All that was happening was that the cutter was pushing the cutting plate in and out - Useless. Replacement motor 184 GBP !

Just purchased a BOSCH AXT rapid works weel, half the weight and 70 GBP cheaper.
