Superb Shredder
31 Jul 2015
By

" Quite a Brilliant bit of Kit.
Self Feeding...a huge bonus..Does not Easily Jam.
It's quiet..Can handle soft and Hard Branches with ease..and due to the fact it be semi dismantled for storage..it does not take up a great deal of room when not in use.
This is the best home use chipper i've owned..Very Happy!" "

The AXT25D is fantastic!
15 Sep 2014
By
, Tonbridge
" I ordered this item on Friday, picked it up on Saturday. It was easy to set up and get into action. We felled a large cypress tree, the trunk and branches we chain sawed Into logs, the rest was munched up with ease by this shredder. It worked all weekend almost without a hitch. One jam, all our own fault, was easily cleared by the reverse action. It's quiet too, no disturbing the neighbours with this machine. Created a good heap of mulch that we will spread around the garden. Fantastic, buy it! "

A Serious Piece of Kit
19 Mar 2016
By
, Berwick upon Tweed
" I checked on-line reviews and Bosch seem to have cornered the market in quality garden shredders. Chose this one against a cheaper model because of the material to be shredded. Have tested it and it seems very impressive; chews through garden waste with ease and really does take branches up to 40cm.
Doesn't require much storage space either, Only downside is it's quite heavy and although it has wheels it's tricky to move up or down steps.

Good but not infallable
23 Jan 2016
By
, Whitstable
" This is a really heavy box! Once unpacked (open the box like a garage and slide it out) and assembled the wheels make it easy to move. Assembly is easy. Don't fiddle with the grey knob on the side, it's factory set and you won't need to touch it until the unit has been used a long time, if you fiddle with it, you need to back it right off, turn on, then turn it in until the cutter starts grinding bits of the aluminium pressure plate, then back off a bit. The shredder is not quiet, but it's not as noisy as another I've owned. It claims to shred branches up to 40mm so I fed a piece of (admittedly tough) 35mm branch in and it jammed up completely - wouldn't go forward or backward, I had to strip it down quite a bit to get it out, so beware! But if you don't feed it tough seasoned branches over about 30mm or fresh cut prunings over the rated 40mm it does a good job most of the time. Some branches are not completely cut - they come out having been very nearly cut through at regular intervals but with a thin layer still connecting them.
So in summary, the bes shredder I've owned but not infallable. "

Not bad at all
14 Jul 2013
By
, Newton-Le-Willows
" This machine has worked very well for me. Correctly adjusted, it makes short work of the huge amount of branches and leaves from a massive laurel bush. Correct adjustment is essential, or it won't chop branches right through. There is a minor issue that vibration causes the catcher to come adrift and cause the machine to shut-off; but this is a minor annoyance and easily fixed with an elastic hook. I would recommend this machine, but it is really a domestic machine, not for use day in and day out. "

Keep on munching
19 Jun 2013
By
, Middlesbrough
" Just noticed a few bad reviews on here so, as I'm very happy with mine and have had no problems, thought I'd try to redress the balance.
I had a few very large (5m) trees to remove so bought one of these to take care of all the small branches too small for the log burner. OK it took a long time to feed everything thorough it but it's taken everything I can throw at it so far. Doesn't like really small stuff as that tends to clog it a bit so you need to mix what you feed it.
Bought a spare set of blades when I bought it as thought I'd need them but original blades still going strong.
Be careful pushing the red plastic pusher in though as the machine eats the end of it if it's not straight. :-)

Shreader usage

" This shreader has been used on hedges of different types and seems to cope with the demands with no problems. Keep an eye on the storage container as this fills up quickly & can clog up the blades if not emptied. "

Bosch electric shredder
25 Nov 2014
By
, Northants
" Bought as an all rounder for the garden hedges. Very good at the thicker branches, however not great with the leafy twigs. The leaves kept sticking and would need to be unblocked.
Also bought to "scrat" apples. (Cut them into smaller bits for making cider.) Didn't work.
Slightly finickity to unblock but no worse than any others I have used. "

Bosch AXT 25D
27 Oct 2014
By
, sussex
" Bought this to replace an ATCO 2000 Quiet Shredder (made by Bosch) which finally gave up the ghost after 15 years heavy service. Basically a big disappointment simply not as good. Partly a design issue. The Atco dumped the chippings into a detachable bag. As the chippings tend to form a pyramid when they come out of the exit chute with a bag it as easy to flatten the pyramid with the machine running. The collection box system on the AXT make this impossible without stopping the machine and removing the box, but if you don't the growing pyramid tends to block up the exit chute and material circulates round the cutter particularly if there was any greenery around. The cutting is not as good as the Atco either, despite adjusting it as per handbook instructions .Thin branches do not cut cleanly What it does do reasonably efficiently is munch up branches providing there are not too many leaves on them or they are very thin. If this is what you want to use it for then you should be OK. Overall I do find the collection system a pain, presumably done for HSE reasons, however give me a bag anytime. "

is it all in the name -Botch?
6 Sep 2012
By
, Edinburgh
" I purchased one of these machines earlier this year - very heavy and substantial - just what was required for hard work in my garden? After a good start, the machine stopped -due to the basket vibrating away from a sensor in the machine body so the machine cut out- as designed - this became a feature to be watched for- the machine refused to restart, after emptying a basket-never to restart- nothing jamming it -? some electical jinx. Checked all supplies fuses and trips -no reset on machine without removing covers. Replaced shredder with same model. Went well for 20 minutes then when smaller stuff was not being cut- reversed the rotor direction to clear -as instructed in handbook manual- machine refused to run forward - nothing jamming the rotor!? another electical jinx - Is Bosch not a major electrical manufacturer? What can one say !!- to put the lid on it, the retail supplier had ceased to stock the machine as "the season" for this type of equipment was now over!
I made a mistake of buying "the brand"-clearly should have done some research with screwfix first.
