Like the different types of vegetation and plantations, there are also different shredders available for the different types of gardens. You need to first understand the type of your garden, whether it is a garden with just small plants and shrubs or that which includes even thick-barked trees. It is based on this that you need to pick and choose the right shredder for your gardening and cleaning purposes. Whatever and however they are, the shredders need to be an easy-to-use garden shredder.
- Rapid or impact shredders- these shredders come with a single blade and can operate and function for only small and thin logs of wood and dried leaves. These shredders cannot take in heavy logs of wood because they are not made to cut them and doing this might damage their blades and make them unfit for the purpose. They have the ability to cut the logs into fine pieces but the biggest disadvantage is they make a lot of noise and sound and hence are not preferred by many. But this never has an impact on their performance. The logs of wood or the leaves have to be fed into this shredder using a plunger that would effectively put them in for crushing.
- Roller or crushing shredders – these are better and a preferred option when compared to the rapid or impact shredders. Here the shredders work in a circular motion making it easy for the blades to cut the logs of wood or thick twigs. Since they function in a circular motion there is no need for the gardener to use a plunger to feed the materials in. The mechanism would self-feed the materials and hence result in an efficient working of the device or tool. They are also easy to use and require very less cleaning and lower maintenance.
