Evening All

                I,am thinking of buying a shredder for next year. Does anyone have one or have some advice
                 on what to buy? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Cheers.

I'm not sure of particular makes, but general advice would be consider the max width of branches it can take, its volume (dB), and that it can reverse the blades if it gets stuck.

I'm sure others will have better advice than that though ... !
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

I donít know about petrol shredders but the electric one I have doesnít like green stuff, it prefers things that are dry & woody, not sure if they are all the same.

The best shredder for green stuff is a lawn-mower, electric or petrol. Just put the stuff on the ground and run it over ita few times

I think you may be right.  Certainly when we've had a professional chipper on site they've not been able to do the really springy stuff; it gums up the blades.

I agree that a rotary mower would do the trick for the finest stuff.
