General Comments
Assembly was easy of the Sovereign Quiet Garden Shredder 2500W, but the press-on wheel covers fell off the minute the shredder was moved, so they will stay off. Complete rubbish.

I found myself rather disappointed initially with this shredder, and wished I had gone for an equivalent Bosch model, as reviews seemed favourable and enthusiastic. When first used, the Sovereign 2500, £159 from Homebase seemed to be more of a crusher than a shredder, with green twigs passing through untouched in some cases. I persevered and adjusted the blade to the closest I could. Better results then. Dry branches up to 4 cm diameter made great chips. The specification on the Homebase site indicated that branches up to 540mm diameter could be shredded. Half a metre - ish? I don't think so!

The shredder comes with a good sized box for catching the shredded material, and the shredder won't work unless it is locked in place. I have struggled before with bags, and this is definitely preferable. In operation the shredder, with its spiral cutting system is fairly quiet, even when shredding.
