Garden shredders are for shredding a large volume of garden waste. Garden clippings made up of bushes, trees, hedge trimmings or rough compost like hay or manure, leaves, fallen fruit or grass clippings can be safely crushed. Shredding using a garden shredder is for better for biodegradability.
Depending on the application, garden shredders are available in various styles and performance levels. The engine of the shredder is mostly via an electric motor with a voltage between 220 and 230 volts. When crushing in a garden shredder, various techniques are used. The oldest technique is a blade cutting system on a plate-shaped disc. In addition to this, in the middle there is a circular cutter to chop thin branches or stems. With this method, the shredded material does not collect automatically, it must be unplugged. These garden shredders are very noisy and there is an increased risk of injury. Garden shredders with cone-shaped or slanted flywheels collect chaff automatically as soon as it comes into contact with the cutter disks. Another is the rolling cutting system; it collects the shredded material automatically and also crushes it. The rolling of the blades grinds automatically through the back pressure of a metal disk. Although garden shredders with a rolling cutting system are slower than those with flywheels, they are significantly quieter. The last two, often on the market representing cutting variants of the garden shredder, are the hammer cutting system and the axe cutting system. The hammer cutting system initially collects rolls of branches and the choppers then crush them.Garden shredders with a chopping concept adopt the hacking process applied to a shaft, blades and counter-blades.
