Is it worth buying a branch shredder?
Pruning trees and shrubs or cleaning up broken twigs are duties that await us during the spring and autumn season. However, with pruned or stripped branches, we often don't know what to do, and without a proper place to store them, the growing pile will become an increasing aesthetic problem for our garden.
In such a situation, it is worth taking the help of special equipment. The shredder - as the name suggests - will, in the blink of an eye will shred twigs, sticks, leaves and branches for us, so you can quickly get rid of them from the garden and bring order to it. However, the advantages do not end there. The resulting shredded chips can be used for mulching flower beds, protecting plants from low temperatures or as valuable material for compost. The versatile nature of the branch shredder makes it ideal for both the professional fruit grower and the casual allotment holder.
What to look for when buying a branch shredder?
When considering the purchase of branch shredder, you are certainly wondering what to pay attention to. Choosing the right shredder will depend on individual needs. Take a look at individual parameters such as type of drive, motor power or maximum branch diameter. It is also worth noting whether the model we choose has a container for chips and a safety system that will allow us to work safely.
Which branch shredder - petrol or electric?
Most manufacturers offer internal combustion and electric models, so the first thing to do is to see what benefits each can offer us.
If you run an orchard or garden with a lot of trees and shrubs, you will need a shredder with a higher engine power in the range of 1.2 hp to 6 hp, and such will be guaranteed to you by a diesel-powered shredder. This device can much better cope with prolonged work and a large amount of processed material. The combustion models will also allow you to shred larger diameter branches. Another advantage is that there is no power cord, so you can work in a large area and in places where there is no access to a permanent power source. The downside of petrol shredders is less mobility due to its larger size and noisy mode of operation.
Electric branch shredder is the perfect solution for a private garden. Motor power in the range of 1.2 kW to 2.8 kW can easily cope with cutting small branches from domestic trees and shrubs. The advantages of the electric shredder are compact size and quieter operation, while one of the limitations is the need to provide power in the ordered location.
The branch shredder is an indispensable aid for cleaning up the orchard or garden. In the offer of EWIMAX you will find a wide range of modern shredders with which you will effectively take care of green space.
