Includes Tamper FREE Set of Replacement Blades
Overall Rating: 3/5
Durostar Eco Shredder
It worked until I needed to change the blades. Then, then chute would not fit back on without binding the blades. Talked with factory reps and techs and got nothing but run around. What an expensive piece of crap. No support from this company. Instead, I had to go through the factory, which demonstrated a complete lack of desire to help in any way at all. Great. I highly recommend not purchasing this product, unless you have need of a prop to hold your door open.
I bought it primarily for chopping straw and leaves. I use a lot of straw as mulch in my garden and this breaks it down very nicely and cracks any seeds in the straw thus I have less germination of wheat in my garden. I have put sticks and weeds thru it also just to see if it could do it. It did. I almost didn't keep it because of in transit damage (sheared bolts holding it on its frame). If it wasn't for Angie's determination in making sure I got the right parts to fix it - it would have gone back. Only complaint, wheels are too narrow to go easily across the lawn to the garden, changed them to wider pneumatic tires with wider foot print.
