And very easy to use.
Mary Milbert
It works exactly as advertised: it handles dried leaves, small twigs, and thin branches just fine, as well as straw and hay.
urbanfarmgirl
When I went to screw the one way screws into the hopper to attach it to the feed tube the bolts on the inside fell out.

I have had my electric Eco-shredder/chipper/mulcher for about one year. I use it for my vegetable garden waste, Fall leaves, and small branches from my trees and shrubs. The key to this product running well is to keep the items small (1"), feed the machine very slowly, and take care not to put wet debis into the hopper. This machine will clog easily, so it requires patients to let the debis clear before adding more.

Finally, the blades must be sharpend at the end of each days use. It takes some time to disassemble, sharpen, and reassemble. The Eco-shredder is a little electrically run machine that will do what it is advertized to do...don't expect more.

I carefully researched a shredder for our small, brush-inundated yard. We had not one, not two, but three GIANT brush piles and we knew we had to make an investment. This was the best rated shredder I could find under $1000 dollars. Thing is, this thing is WAY under a 1000 dollars.
It doesn't have the power of a gas model, sure. But that means it doesn't shake itself apart like some of the popular gas models.

The Eco-shredder has been great so far. I bought it here and it was delivered quickly. It is very easy to put together-- it is pretty much assembled in the box-- you just put on the top chute, the wheels, and the handle.

It has a good amount of power. It only jams when fed 1 inch or larger branches with knots, and those are really easy to clear with the included tool that makes the motor turn manually. It is very quiet for a shredder. It appears to be very safe, also. It comes with a replacement set of blades for when the time comes, and all the tools to replace those blades.

You have to pre-process large branches, but it's SO worth it. Already one brush pile is gone! And it makes lovely mulch!

I've had it for three months and so far, there have been no problems. I'll review it again if anything changes.

One thing that I do need to mention is that the box says there is a tamper included but there is not. And the instruction manual is very light, but I've had no problems.

EDIT:
The Ecoshredder died on me (but it's now alive-- see EDIT 3). Shortly after reviewing, the metal piece that was feeding the larger branches into the housing actually cracked off the welding and went flying into the working blades, ruining the blades and the shoot for the branches.

My husband and I do a lot of yard work and we have used Electric Chipper/Shredders before and even bought a competitive model that claims to have 15 amps. But it just didn't have the power of the Eco- Shredder ES 1600. It is remarkably quiet and we have already used it many hours without a hitch. We use it often to mulch leaves and to shred smaller branches. We have a good size yard and this product has handled the work load well. My husband likes the fact it comes with an extra set of blades. We had a McCulloch and had a great deal of trouble finding replacement blades and it seemed to vibrate too much when used. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for an electric model.

I am very pleased with the product. It does great for the small shredding jobs around my house. It was also very good that they sent an extra blade with the shredder. The only complaint that I have is that I cannot find a way to purchase extra blades. The e-mail address included with the product does not work and I cannot find any web site on the Internet where replacement blades may be purchased.

I've only given the unit a quick test, but it worked great. Installing the handle, chute, and wheels onto the chipper was easy and straight forward, though the instructions are not as thorough as they could be. Assembly took about 15 minutes. The unit is physically smaller than I expected, which is good given how full my shed is. It is also surprisingly heavy. All the yellow painted areas of the unit are metal. The handle and legs are hollow metal tubing, but thicker than I have seen on any equipment of this type before. When tipped onto its wheels, the unit is well balanced and rolls easily, but side tipping might be an issue on rough terrain. I trimmed some shrubs a week ago and left the trimmings laying around while waiting for the chipper/shredder to arrive. After assembly I snipped off some smaller stalks (<1/4" dia) with green leaves from the pile and fed them through the clippings chute in the top. Getting them through the opening and safety flap required attention, but was not difficult. Getting the last bit to go down required a pusher stick of some kind, as the flap tended to grab the last few inches and keep them from falling in. The resulting "mulch" was bits of the stalks mixed with leaf shreds that were about 3/4" diameter and significantly torn up. Perfect for my compost pile. I then chipped some of the branches up to about 1" in diameter. This material was green wood. The chipper ran smoothly, reduced the branches to small chips probably 1/8" X 3/8". Slightly courser that saw dust, big enough that it will not blow around if you use it as mulch. I never had any stalling problems, but it occasionally tried to pull the branch in faster than was reasonable.Read more ›
