Here are the Garden Shredder Review’s choice for the Best 3 Electric Garden Shredders 2019. We don’t think there will be any surprises.  We have chosed one shredder from each of the categories:

  • Best impact garden shredder
  • Best quiet shredder
  • Best turbine cut shredder

The Best Electric Garden Shredder of 2019

Bosch AXT 25TC (Turbine Cut)

The Bosch AXT 25TC has been our shredder of the year for the last 2 years.  Before that its slightly less powerful predecessor – the 23TC held the top spot.

This shredder is so good that the only viable alternative is to look at the best of the smaller petrol shredders/chippers.

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 we will let you know when new reviews are available.

We have summarised some of the more popular alternatives on the bottom of the review pages.
