I have had our Atco Shedder for several years and it has shredded everything that I have thrown at it. Obviously the bearing has to be greased now and then and there is a small problem with the gap adjustment between the cutter and the steel plate as it is difficult to adjust after a while (needs pliers to turn it).

Dry branches can bounce up and down in the hopper ~ sometimes. We think this is a good unit, particularly for… Read Full Review

If you have a large garden and need to clear it quickly then the Atco Shredder 2000 will happily keep going. Albeit it ours failed due to leaving it in the elements for about 7 months with just a bin bag to cover the electrics. Yes this might sound dangerous and a bit foolish but it does go to show that it is robust enough to get the job done even after exposed. We managed to use it for several hours non stop before it gave up (after it's 7 month stint in the garden doing nothing).
