No more back and forth to and from the recycling center!
The plant shredder allows you to dispose of all your green waste directly on your land, either foliage or branches. The tool turns into tokens which are then perfect for mulch or compost!
For large volumes, for occasional maintenance or for your sheets, here is my selection of best bosch garden shredders.
Bosch AXT 25 TC
Editor’s note: 5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon
Equipped with an innovative turbine cutting system and coupled with a powerful 2500W motor, this Bosch shredder offers an extremely fast throughput of up to 230kg of green waste per hour. It also has a cutting capacity of 45mm in diameter, which means it is capable of shredding all kinds of plants and wood (branches and shrubs, soft and hard). Designed to limit the risk of jamming, it is not necessary to cut longer elements beforehand, especially since the funnel is wide. The 53 L collection bag is removable and equipped with handles to facilitate emptying. For user safety, the device has also been designed not to operate until the grass catcher is properly closed. This AXT 25 TC is finally silent for everyone’s comfort.
My opinion : If you’re like me, you’d expect most of your electric garden shredders to have a good flow rate to work quickly and not struggle to break through garden branches to get good shavings for mulching. And that is offered by Bosch in all these areas! Its only real flaw are its wheels that are too small, poorly placed and not very all-terrain. But for everything else, it’s top notch. It’s really not too noisy, the only time it gets stuck is when the bin is full, then you can reverse it to pull out the plants, and the power is clearly there. The funnel has also been specially designed to slide into the collection box to allow the machine to take up less space when stored. It’s very good material, and even if the price is a little high, the investment is worth it!
Bosch AXT Rapid 2000
Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon
The AXT Rapid 2000 is a shredder intended for the maintenance of small gardens. Equipped with a unique cutting system with precision blades, its shredding performance is ideal for quickly and easily getting rid of flowers, foliage and all tender branches. Thanks to a cutting capacity of up to 35 mm and a funnel that offers a large filling volume, its throughput can also reach up to 80 kg/h of green waste. In addition to its efficiency, the device has also been designed to be as practical as possible. Obviously, it comes with a pusher that allows you to work in complete safety, but above all it is mobile, compact and space-saving. Thanks to its 2 wheels and its lightness, it is both easy to handle, enough to be taken anywhere in the garden and easily stored afterwards.
My opinion : From this Bosch model I would say that we are in a good quality/price ratio. If it is clearly not the kind of grinder that will gobble up all the plants without flinching into mush, it is still more than enough for occasional use. It packs a little when you put mostly weed in it, but for everything else it works pretty well. It transforms foliage and branches into perfect mulching chips and its flow rate is sufficient for use at home, provided you do not have to maintain several hectares of vegetation! I can’t fault it for handling either, and while it’s not the quietest, the noise it makes is quite bearable. At this price, it’s a good option if you only need a shredder to dispose of your plants a few times a year!
Bosch ALS 30
Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon
The Bosch ALS 30 is not just a simple garden shredder: it is a 3-in-1 tool that also has an electric vacuum cleaner and blower. Designed to make garden maintenance easier, it quickly shreds foliage and facilitates composting. Thanks to a powerful 3000 W motor and a blowing speed of up to 300 km/h, it easily picks up all the dead leaves (even wet ones) before sucking them up and shredding them. To facilitate recovery, its bag has a volume of 45 L, is made of waterproof fabric and has a zipped opening. And as far as the device itself is concerned, everything has been thought out to make its use as pleasant and comfortable as possible. In addition to its low weight, it has an adjustable handle and a padded shoulder strap.
My opinion : If you have a lot of trees on your land, this Bosch will come in handy to turn all your leaves into compost. It is not a shredder that will take care of pulverizing your branches, but on the other hand it will take good care of the foliage. And what I liked the most about this device is its power in the wind tunnel. It has 2 speeds and really has no problem lifting wet leaves off the ground. It is even perfect for cleaning gutters. And then the vacuum cleaner picks up those leaves and shreds them. It is really very practical! Occasionally the vacuum will lose a bit of power due to wet leaves getting stuck, but cleaning up isn’t really a hassle. And even if at full power it is quite noisy, it makes up for it by being very practical. It is a versatile and multifunctional grinder that I recommend without hesitation!
