Transform your yard into a showplace, without all the sweat and strain. With the help of its extra-large, 21-inch-diameter funnel, the Leaf-Eater effortlessly reduces wet or dry yard waste--including rain-soaked leaves and grass clippings--into nutrient-rich mulch or compost that you can reuse right in your flowerbeds or vegetable garden. With this efficient tool, creating a great yard is as simple as shredding and spreading!
Two-Step Process Shreds and Mulches
This system utilizes a two-step process that shreds and then mulches for fast cleanup and maximum waste reduction. Simply feed double handfuls of material into the hopper and watch the Leaf-Eater do all the work.
Patented Design and Powerful Motor Shred Debris Fast
Thanks to its patented design, double heavy-duty cutting lines, and powerful universal motor with circuit breaker and reset button for overload protection, the Leaf-Eater shreds wet or dry leaves, thatch, grass clippings, pine needles, and even paper as fast as you can load them.
Use the elastic bungee cord to hold your leaf bag in place, or place the Leaf-Eater atop your trash container (with a leaf bag inside) for mess-free disposal. Additionally, the Leaf-Eater's adjustable pressure knobs allow positioning of the hopper to any angle for easier loading; the hopper also rotates 180 degrees for compact storage.
Range of Shredding Adjustments for Flexibility
The Leaf-Eater offers the convenience of a range of shredding adjustments from coarse to fine--up to 30:1 particle size-reduction. A sliding control lever that’s easy to read allows you to choose the right setting for the job.
Lightweight Design and Built-In Carrying Handles for Easy Portability
Lightweight at just 17 pounds, the Leaf-Eater features a rugged, high-density polyethylene funnel and housing, as well as steel leg construction for long life and easy maintenance. And for true portability, built-in carrying handles allow this unit to go where you go.
Quick and Easy Assembly Right Out of the Box
Out of the box, the Leaf-Eater is a snap to put together in minutes; you'll only need a #2 Phillips-head screwdriver. Maintenance is equally effortless thanks to the removable motor intake filter--just remove and clean periodically. The Leaf-Eater also features a convenient built-in storage compartment to hold replacement cutting lines, gloves, and safety glasses.

that being said I was happy with how well it mulched! You could only put a small amount of leaves in ii in order for it to not get bogged down. Don't even bother with the flimsy Cutting Lines that come with the product , they don't work at all. I went and bought some bigger 2.7mm ones and had to drill out the hole that they go through. Now I am not a handy woman, so this was very easy.
I have 5 mature trees in my yard 3 of which are over 60'. The city allows two garbage bins for yard waste (so generous..not!) so getting all this into those bins is impossible. However this product helped me achieve that .One last comment I had to change out the shredding lines 6 times! it may be because some of the walnuts that fall for my tree, but I don't think so , I think the shredding lines are too close to the bottom so they get shredded faster know pun intended!
The 3 photos are before, during and to give you an idea of how big my piles are my 2 dogs in one of them .
I read a lot of reviews about shredders before buying this model. First thing I can tell you is, it just feels cheap. The hopper is a pain to put together. I recommend two people. Simple enough assembly, but all the while I'm thinking this thing is never going to last.
Testing: With dryish wet straw, as in not soaking wet but not super dry. The shredder did fairly well. Dry leaves, the shredder did fairly well. Wet leaves, the shredder did fairly well. I'm sort of impressed with how well the shredder worked. The size of the shredded material is fine to coarse. I thought I'd have to run the material through the shredder a second time, I may have to with the straw, but I found that the size was what I was looking for. During use, the hopper popped off. It was very secure after assembly.
I originally gave this product three stars but while I was writing the review, I decided to lower it to two stars. When using, the shredder just feels like it could fall apart at any time. Even when the unit is off. And in my book, the power switch is reversed. To turn the unit on, you have to press the red side of the toggle switch. To turn the unit off, you press the green side of the toggle switch. I'll update this review in a few months.
I have used the shredder several times now. While impressed with the working of the unit, I've lowered the rating to 1 star due to the cheapness of construction. The hopper part has cracked and I suspect will become unusable by the end of the growing season. I only put leaves and straw into the shredder. Price does not merit the length of time this product will last.
o Has a storage space for spare cutter "strings" built into the side - which is very handy. The other one does not.
o It has a foam air filter which can be removed and cleaned. Grinding leaves is very dusty, so this is a good idea. The other one does not have this feature.
o This one has a feature that allows one to change the size of the opening below the blades. This is very handy, especially for dealing with moist and wet leaves. The other one does not have this feature - so wet leaves are even more of a pain.
I wish that the funnel was one piece. I understand that this way it is easier to ship, but this way also feels much flimsier.

All in all it seams to be a great machine for the price.
It took me about about 1/2 hr.
Some other buyers stated it was not terribly robust.
Remember this device was designed for the average home owner, not for industrial use.
I gave it a solid workout and I'm pleased with the results.
A word of warning. It will not shred tigerlily stems.
They have a tendency to wrap around the shredder head until it jams. Too fibrous I imagine.
Even though it will handle damp leaves, for best results shred only dry leaves.
