Shred garden waste quickly and easily
Your garden also wants to stay in shape. Therefore, you have to trim hedges, bushes and trees regularly with hedge trimmers and chainsaws. But what to do with all the clippings? Our shredders are ideal for chopping branches, sticks, twigs and greens thanks to a unique cutting and roller technology. AL-KO shredders score with a large feed hopper, innovative cutting or roller mechanism and stable chassis. We attach great importance to your safety: As soon as you remove the collecting box of the AL-KO Easy Crush, for example, the device switches off automatically. With a robust shredder from AL-KO, the job is done quickly and you have plenty of time to enjoy your garden.
Totally from the roll
The roll feed in the extra large hopper means that the shredded material can be filled in easily and conveniently. The integrated handle ensures easy transport.
The large, integrated catch box of the Easy Crush chippers is not only extremely dimensionally stable and ideal for transporting the chipped material. The integrated closing contact also guarantees maximum safety.
A wide chassis and large, easy-grip XL wheels ensure a safe stand and good handling when shredding.
precision cutting unit
The powerful knife cutting unit with additional knife for pre-shredding ensures a faster cut, improved self-feeding and effective operation (depending on model).
Separate branch feed
In addition to the large main feed hopper for soft material, the innovative cutting technology has an additional, separate branch feed for branches up to max. 45 mm (depending on model).
Useful tips & Tricks
For many gardeners, a shredder is part of the standard tool: it ensures that branches and hedge cuttings/cuttings are easily turned into useful compost that you can use in your garden straight away. There is no need for external disposal.
Knife or roller ?
A knife or roller shredder is required, depending on the requirements. While the knife shredder is ideal for woody and leafy garden waste and its shredded material is ideal for covering beds, for example, the roller shredder is more the shredder for the "coarse": Its shredded material is crushed between the roller and the counter plate, so to speak, thus accelerating rotting on the compost.
The forces acting on the shredder vary greatly depending on the material being shredded. This means that before you start, make sure that your shredder is really stable.
What can be shredded and what cannot?
The shredder is ideal for shredding branches, hedge trimmings, long-stemmed, hard or already dried stems of flowers, perennials, shrubs and tree pruning. Ideally, the branches should be shredded shortly after pruning to achieve optimum results.
Feed shredding material correctly
In principle, do not feed shredding material until the machine is already switched on. Any shredded material that has been inserted is drawn in. Soft shredding material should always be processed alternately with branches to prevent the shredding blade from clogging. Only push in as much shredding material as will not block the feed hopper. Hold thicker branches firmly against the chaff, otherwise the engine will be overloaded.
Careful when chipping
caution is required when chipping. Rollers and knives can be dangerous. We recommend that you wear safety goggles, as parts can always fly around when branches are shredded. Clothing must be appropriate (tight-fitting) and must not be a hindrance. Long hair should ideally be secured with a hairnet.
The blade of knife shredders should of course always be sharp to ensure optimal working. Check the knives regularly and replace them if necessary. You can also find replacement knives in the AL-KO Online Shop.
The machine should be cleaned (disconnect from the mains beforehand, of course) and stored in a dry place. Do not clean the shredder under running water or high pressure and do not use cleaning agents or solvents. Use a soft brush or cloth.
