Other Makes of Shredder

Bosch features strongly on this web site.  That is not deliberate.  It is just that in our reviews the Bosch machines provide the most innovative and all encompassing range of electric garden shredders on sale in the uk today. Over the last few years we have seen Bosch shredders come to dominate the market.  Happily, other manufacturers are now providing better machines.

In the past we have included reviews on shredders from Ryobi, Qualcast and Draper. We are currently monitoring, and considering reviews on, machines from The Handy, Task Life, Einhell, Makita, Hilvert, Mountfield, Stihl and Worx. 

Many of these makes may be well worth your attention – particularly if you can find a good deal.  If you sign up for our free guide
