WannesRaps's review of Bosch AXT Rapid 2200w Shredder

“Do not buy this shredder”

★☆☆☆☆

written by WannesRaps on 05/08/2014

This machine is poorly designed and constructed, and a constant source of irritation and frustration. It worked only more or less properly for 1 season (before, I had a very basic Black & Decker shredder which lasted 33 yr but this model alas is not available anymore). The blades become blunt very rapidly. It doesn't shred properly but spews out long strips of bark. It is constantly jamming, so you have to constantly open the machine, which is a tiresome procedure, and moreover it is safeguarded in such a way it becomes a nuisance (in the end the machine remained off after it was closed again so I had to bypass the security system). It is made to wear out rapidly, with the blades cutting against aluminium parts. Service is nonexistent, I was told I should buy a heavier Bosch model for my garden job (wich was perfectly within the limits of Bosch AXT Rapid 2200w job description).
