Mostly wonderful

Had ours for 3 years & I entirely agree with Martin's review. With a sharp blade it'll deal with anything you feed it, from bone dry & hard to soft & sappy. The only problem is that it doesn't stay sharp for long. The blade is only hardened along its cutting edge, the rest of it is just a soft mild steel as far as I can tell. When new you'll get quite a lot of work out of the cutting edge but after it's been sharpened four or five times you'll get an hours work at best out of it. I don't agree that you can sharpen it on an oil stone as ours invariably has big nicks out of the edge so requires a tickle with a grinder. I did use the Tormek on it the first couple of times but didn't have the patience as it took ages to get the damage out. The blades are reversible, so you do get twice the life out if each sharpening session. Ours lives almost exclusively on a diet of hedge trimmings & an annual feast of long trimmings from three willow trees, mostly about 20mm dia, which it destroys with a sharp blade, but with a blunt one it just clogs up on the sap. It's easy enough to clear the blockages, though Bosch have chosen a needlessly fine pitched screw for the knob that releases the blade cover so you have to turn it for what seems like ages to get the cover off.
My biggest fear is for the quality of the motor. When we bought this we also had one of the Bosch Rotak mowers which seemed to be a good thing until it stopped working one day. I'd always taken it apart every season to clear the build up of old grass having seen quite a few reviews warning of premature motor failure. The windings on ours had burst as they had no resin or other protection from the centrifugal force they see in service, that's a very basic fault & screams of extreme penny pinching. I've subsequently taken several more apart for friends with failed motor bearings & the motors are designed to be completely non-dismantleable, thus the mower goes in the bin for the sake of a £5 bearing. I'll be amazed if this shredder doesn't have the same faults, in light of which I'm more careful now to keep the blade sharp to keep the load on the motor at a minimum.
In summary, if you're happy to treat it to an annual new blade at about £20 each, then go ahead, you'll love it. It is so much better than the more common type of garden shredder that uses a toothed roller against a fixed plate to do it's work that mere words cannot describe.
If you've got a larger garden, so that each shredding session is going to be several hours long & you'll be doing them multiple times per year, do the extra money on this machine's big brother, the AXT25tc. It's quite a lot heavier, which would have been a problem for us & is the main reason we bought this machine, but is the one we'll buy next time. (Though the blades on those are £220 so I hope they can be sharpened!)

Longterm test

Have had one of these for several years now and it has done a lot of work. Very good PROVIDED the blades are sharp. If you buy a new set of blades every time they get blunt you will spend a fortune, but they are easy to sharpen on an oil stone as they only have a primary edge. If you can get it in in the top, basically it will shred it. Very few jams and easy to clear. Super piece of kit.
