Absolutely nothing to do with IT or computers, but more to do with getting rid of reducing foliage and similar material.
We had a petrol driven shredder that use to make light work of reducing tree branches and the like, with the occasional bit of timber including fixed nails thrown in for good measure. Due to a fault, we have ordered an electric wood shredder (with very good reviews), and should receive delivery on Monday.
So perhaps something for discussion: Have you used or owned one of these machines, and would you like to pass on some hints or opinions on this type of product?.
Argos have a similar model in their catalogue at about the same price. But checking stock, it seems that they have very low stock levels, none for home delivery, and within a 15 mile radius from my home, only 2 of about 12 stores have 1 each in stock. Made me wonder whether it was because of value according to reviews, or perhaps possible returns?.
At least with the one I have ordered, it comes with a two year warranty. The problem now is getting spare blades. Screwfix had them listed (35213), but the sales person said that Screwfix no longer stocked or sold them?.
I would have got a person in, but the two I approached "were very busy", and the price they wanted to charge was about the same as two builder size 'mixed waste' skips that we require to move other waste, including old wooden fence panels, rubble,roofing, concrete etc.
I might be able to recuperate some of my costs, one of the neighbours have a waste and privet hedge disposal problem ;o)
Perhaps a large professional unit, but certainly not the domestic use type. The unit I have just purchased make it quite clear 'No Kitchen Waste' including bones.
But back to the original subject. Assembled and gave the unit a good looking over, plus purchased some new 'heavy duty' extention cable for all systems go, then it poured down with rain, making the dried branches etc wet, which is not advisable to shred due to possibly clogging of cutter. All being well, if the weather changes, then next week for a final experiment on this particular model.
