Worked well until it died...


Bought one of these about 1 year ago. Have used it 2-3 times - probably about 5 hrs total run time. It has worked quite well but yesterday just died. Sounds like the internal gearbox is shot and the motor sounds like its jammed and the teeth will not rotate. The green power lamp just flickers. I have not exceeded the specs and have only shredded branches up to 45mm. Very disappointed that it died with so little usage. As an aside, the user manual gives NO advice as to what the flashing power lamp means....

Purchased at Bunnings Warehouse Retail Stores for $399.00.

Apple tree chips 2020!


We hired a petrol mulcher initially to help with our garden clean out, but it died on us half way through the job and just wouldn't start by the second day. I needed to finish off the job of mulching down the branches from our apple, orange and mandarin trees and it did the job with ease. Eats up branches even up to 5cm thick! Very happy with this Ryobi Shredder, hubby's also happy as his now got 5 trays of apple chips for his BBQ smoker. It is not a mulcher though like the higher end petrol mulchers, as it doesn't crush the woody branches, only cuts it into 'chips'. I ran the shredded chips thru the shredder a few times until I got the desired consistency to feed my compost bins.

Most fun you will have in your garden


This machine is great. I have used it on hibiscus, roses, durantas and pretty much anything else that I can get my hands on. Previously I would spend hours cutting up material to fit it in the green bin but now I can reduce the material to mulch unbelievably quickly. It is a must have for anyone with shrubs that need to be kept under control. It won't do leaves by themselves unless they are on a stem but this does not matter - that is what a mower is for. If you enjoy mowing your grass with a hand mower and not a petrol or battery operated mower, this is not the machine for you.

Does what it says!


Seems to be the same as the previous model Rsh2445T.
Shredded 7 cubic meters of branches, hedging with leaves, palm prongs mix of wet and dry. Did not skip a beat. Seriously impressed. Easy to set the blades as per instructions. Most cuttings are around 1-2cm in size. I did cut many branches wet and dry that I could only fit and it seems to really prefer those. Sucks it all in.
Wish it had a bigger bin! But that’s it. Money well spent!

Are replacement blades still available for a 2400W Crushing Shredder - Model RSH2445S, and how do you replace them? All I could find in the manual was "how to sharpen them".

Not sure - sorry. I would check with Bunnings or call up Ryobi.

does it shred we leaves

2 answers

I have never used it just for leaves. I have used it to do trimmings of murayas, hibiscus, etc. I doubt that would work only on leaves. It does do palm fronds.


No. It’s designed to crunch twigs branches (up to about 35mm in diameter). The output is kind of like wood chips. If you put leaves in they just come out unchanged.
