Ryobi RSH3045U

Editor’s note: 5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

ryobi rsh3045u garden shredderWith its power of 3000 W and its cutting cylinder reaching a rotation speed of 40 rpm, this Ryobi is a shredder capable of taking care of all the plants in the garden, whether foliage or branches. . It has a maximum cutting diameter of 45 mm and thanks to its throughput of up to 200 kg/h it is even suitable for cleaning large areas. Especially since it is accompanied by a large capacity recovery tank (55 L), a tank in which the engine part can also be stored. When the job is done, this part of the engine can be dismantled to save space when storing the tool. Easy to use, the automatic guidance of the branches as well as the pusher provided reduce the effort, while a reversal of the direction of rotation is also available in the event of a jam or when an element gets stuck.

My opinion : Out of Ryobi’s entire line of electric garden shredders, this RSH3045U is by far my favorite – in fact, it’s the one I find the most efficient and convenient to use! In terms of power, it is quite impressive and it swallows all the twigs you can give it without batting an eyelid. If you regularly prune your bushes, you will see how fast and practical it is, especially since it is also perfectly stable thanks to its metal structure. (Its wheels also allow it to move around the terrain.) Chips that come out after chipping are also great for chipping. And even if it is not necessarily silent, the noise it emits during its operation is quite acceptable. For less than €300, it’s a purchase you won’t regret, no matter the size of your garden or the work required to maintain it!

Ryobi RSH2545B

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

ryobi rsh2545b garden shredderThe RSH2545B is a particularly efficient shredder for transforming all shoots and young branches from seasonal pruning into small chips. Equipped with a 2500 W motor, it has enough power to shred branches up to 40 mm in diameter, and since its blades are reversible, its life is extended. To promote throughput and achieve better performance when tending the garden, these blades are equipped with an automatic plant forming system and the machine comes with a pusher to ensure user safety. In addition to its large storage capacity (40 L), it is also easy to empty thanks to a tank/drawer. Finally, its metal structure gives it perfect stability, even when crushing solid branches, while its wide rear wheels facilitate movement, reducing the effort required.

My opinion : This Ryobi is the slightly less powerful version of the model that I presented to you a moment ago, and if I chose it, it is because its price is less than 200 €, which makes it good value for money /price. . It has a good ability to effectively shred plants, although I’d say it still does better on branches than foliage. The pulverization, on the other hand, is of excellent quality and the small fine chips collected are perfect for mulching. It’s only a detail, but I also appreciated the transparency of the drip tray: you can see at a glance when it needs to be emptied! On the other hand, it is quite noisy and therefore does not necessarily make you want to use it for several hours in a row. Its price still makes it a good choice, especially for occasional use a few times a year.

Ryobi RBV1850

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

ryobi rbv1850 garden shredderMulti-functional, this Ryobi shredder not only converts leaves into compost, but also functions as an electric leaf blower to gather them in one place, and a vacuum to make shredding easier! Thanks to a high blowing power, which reaches 201 km/h, this device has no difficulty lifting wet leaves from the ground and unclogging gutters. Although it works without a cable (a 5 Ah battery is included, in addition to the charger), it is equipped with a brushless motor whose power is similar to thermal tools. Weighing only 4.5 kg, it also knows how to be light, enough to use it comfortably on the entire surface of the floor to be cleaned, and it moves very easily thanks to its flexible handle. Finally, it is equipped with a waterproof and reinforced collection bag, sufficient to contain up to 45 L of shredded leaves.

My opinion : This blower-vacuum, as the brand calls it, is not the plant shredder you are used to imagining, the one that reduces the branches to crumbs. It is a tool intended exclusively for foliage, and that is very good because it is often the leaves that have difficulty in shredding in a conventional machine. In addition, here, practicality is pushed to the extreme: thanks to the 3 functions, you do everything at the same time! We blow on the leaves to collect them in a heap and then we suck them up to shred them immediately. Operation is simple and quick, especially since this RBV1850 has the necessary power and maneuverability. It is a shredder that will be very useful for taking care of your leaves (or your lawn, your flowers, etc.): you can easily add them to your compost and thus fertilize your garden to make it even more beautiful!
