A yield of up to 230 kg of green waste per hour? This is indeed what this Bosch offers! With its powerful 2500 W motor, it is one of the most powerful shredders on the market, and thanks to its innovative cutting system (by turbine), it can attack all types of plants, branches such as bushes. , soft and hard woods, wide (up to 45 mm in diameter). A real professional tool, it has a funnel wide enough to avoid having to cut the longest branches first, the risk of clogging is limited and the 53 L collection box is easily removable and equipped with handles to easy emptying. Small significant detail, the funnel has also been designed to slip into this collection box: thus, the machine does not take up too much space once stored!
My opinion : Do you have a large area to clean? Want to work fast? Do you want to get good chips? In that case, I definitely recommend this bosch grinder. In terms of power, it is truly exceptional, and has absolutely no trouble shredding all the branches in the garden. If this machine is my favorite it’s because it’s also quite quiet (for our comfort… but also for the neighbours!), and I appreciate the fact that its cutting system can work in the opposite direction when filling. . (Only happens when you didn’t realize the bin was full!) It’s also not perfect, especially I find its wheels too small, not quite all-terrain enough, but overall still great!

Foliage or branches, this Ryobi is capable of eliminating all the plants in your garden! With its 3000 W motor and its cutting cylinder with a rotation speed of up to 40 rpm, this shredder quickly disposes of your green waste. Performance of 200 kg/h, XL collection tank of 55 L and maximum cutting diameter of 45 mm, it is suitable for both professionals and individuals with large plots. It must be said that it was designed to be easy to use, in particular with the automatic drive of the branches (which considerably reduces the effort required), and the reversal of the direction of rotation in the event of jamming (or if the branches get stuck blocked). And to be stored efficiently between uses, without requiring a lot of space, the collection box can be removed to fit on the engine part.
My opinion : It was a tight match with the Bosch, this ryobi grinder could very well have been my favorite too! It must be said that the brand has done an excellent job with this powerful, reliable and practical machine to use. Generally, we expect a garden shredder to be fast, have no problem swallowing most branches, and make small shavings that are perfect for mulch. And that’s exactly what this model does! The fact that it is very stable and easy to drive is also appreciable, but on the other hand, it is a little noisier than the Bosch and that is why it did not take the lead in this ranking! But its noise remains quite acceptable, and thanks to its very good performance, I have no hesitation in recommending it to you as well.

This chipper from Tacklife has been designed to easily remove all branches and plants during maintenance and pruning work. In addition to its 2800 W motor and its cutting speed of up to 40 rpm, it has a toothed wheel and a rotor cutting system ideal for facilitating the composting of green waste. If its maximum cutting diameter of 45 mm allows multiple uses in the garden, you can even adjust the distance between the blades to adapt perfectly to the size of the plants to be shredded. The device also comes with a sturdy pusher and the 55 liter drip tray can be easily removed and emptied. (A security system on this tray ultimately ensures the safety of the user.)
My opinion : This is the good surprise of this selection! In terms of value for money, this is one of the best choices you can make. Although obviously not as powerful as a professional shredder, this Tacklife can be very useful when it comes to getting rid of all the branches that are starting to accumulate in the garden. With its fairly powerful motor, I have also found it to work very well on many different types of wood, even those considered the hardest. Emitting up to 90dB, it’s obviously not quiet, but it’s not the loudest machine either. In summary, I would say that it is a good shredder at a not too expensive price that will help you maintain your green spaces more easily.

To facilitate seasonal pruning and reduce trips to the recycling centre, this Ryobi shredder is the ideal candidate! Thanks to its 2500 W motor, it is powerful enough to shred all shoots and branches (with a maximum diameter of 40 mm). Equipped with reversible knives and automatic plant support, throughput and yield are favored. The device also comes with a pusher so that the user is always safe. Solid and robust, its metal structure also ensures perfect stability while its large rear wheels allow it to be moved easily. As for its recovery tank, it is still 40 L and its emptying is facilitated thanks to a drawer-shaped design.
My opinion : If you do not have great needs in terms of crushing plants and you are looking for an economical machine, this model may be of interest to you! The biggest technical difference between this RSH2545B and the Ryobi I showed you earlier is power and performance. But on the other hand, in terms of performance, they are always at the top: this machine cuts branches and foliage in no time, and the chips harvested are perfect for mulching. Its biggest flaw is its noise level: it is clearly not discreet, but after all, you always expect it a bit when you use a grinder! And as a price below €200 shows, it’s still a very good choice, especially if you only plan to use it a few times a year.

With its razor-sharp steel blades, nothing can resist this shredder, whether it’s hard or soft plants. Branches, branches, bushes, shoots and even grass, he is capable of anything. It cuts into pieces thanks to the combination of its 2400 W motor and its efficient cutting system which rotates at a speed of 4500 rpm. Equipped with a curved non-return lid, the elements to be shredded are also well positioned to prevent clogging as much as possible. Light with only 12 kg, easy to move with its two rear wheels, it is also practical thanks to its system for recovering green waste. Simply attach the 50 L bag to the device, and once full, remove it to attach the second bag included and thus continue working without waiting!
My opinion : In the category of inexpensive plant shredders, this Gardebruk is positioned very well! For less than 150€, of all the models that I have been able to test, it is by far the one that does the best. So of course, I won’t say it’s excellent: it’s quite loud, it vibrates a lot, and although the brand says it can swallow branches up to 45 mm in diameter, I found that he was already starting to have problems at 30 mm! But on the other hand, nothing to say about the shavings, perfect for mulching. So he does his job well… if he agrees not to be too demanding. If your shredding needs are not very large (small garden, a few hedges, not too thick branches, etc.), it should be able to satisfy you.
