Heavy domestic shredder gets it done.

Advantages: Good value for larger gardens
Disadvantages: Like a Fiat it has a few plastic parts here and there!

Winter's a comin' and the garden is full to bursting with hedge prunings, leaves, old branches and other detritus. You could have a good old fashioned bonfire but you might burn hedgehogs! Noone (that I know of) wants this; neither do we really want to ...

Bosch AXT 2000 Quiet Shredder

Advantages: Seems to shred everything you give it
Disadvantages: Quite heavy when you want to take it where the wheels won't help
