Perfect when pruning trees.

published

A must for all who prune trees around yard. Saves trips to the dump. I love the machine, the only thing it does not do green grass. It jams the machine. Blade on machine is excellent . Easy to clean. Easy to use. small enough for me to move on my own but strong enough to mulch most branches. Portable do can move around yard easily.

Goes blunt too quickly, and is too expensive.

published

Not worth the money, u can get 10x more multch for the money. The mulch you get out of a set of $20 blades will cover the same area as a bag of sugar cane

It breaks down way too regularly and the blades are made With inferior product ( need to sharpen blades after every large mulching session).

If you buy a mulcher, Think twice before buying any low end item.

The Leaf tray is also a waste of time, a regular lawn mover does a better job and is much quicker to mulch leaves.
Convenient. Good warranty, I had 2 issues within warranty that were covered.
Unreliable. broke down twice. Blocks up too easily. Goes blunt too quickly. Definitely not worth the money

Useless

I loved it when it was new. It worked very well.
Unhappy that they gone out of business and no spare blades are available.
Can no longer get new blades for the Tallon shredder.
It was a good shredder.
Cannot get new blades

You could always take old blades to an engineering works. I'm sure they could make some for you fairly cheaply.

Good machine for the price. Would like a larger chute for branches, as it gets stuck at most forks in the branch. Overall, it does a sterling job!
Very quiet motor & chews branches very quickly. Mulched up 6 trees in 6 days without much problem. Just kept on going!
Blockes up occasionally in the exit chute, and the cutting blades need sharpening occasionally.

Very pleased with the machine have done quite a lot of shredding over the last year. Some very hard wood as well is quickly shredded. Often needed to sharpen the branch chipping blades and the main mulching blade broke in half.
Easy to use and move around. Good size mulch produced
Chipping blades blunt-en quickly

Good value

It is quiet and works as described - it tells you not to use it for wet/fibrous plants. It will mulch these, but you will need to manually empty it out from time to time as it will clog. It could be a little taller to prevent backache, but in the end I sat down and fed everything through. It chomps through hardwood and even palm fronds that are well dried out with no problems. I am glad I bought it
Quiet, produces great mulch
Bit too low, protective flaps a little difficult to get through for clippings

Um... this is an Australian site, and you're in England? Need to consult Google and find if there's some sort of hardware/home-garden equipment store near you. An equivalent item (bladed) is probably about 150 British Pounds. A better item (crusher) about twice that.

Do a google search on 'garden shredder'. I got mine from Bunnings but now they mostly sell Ryobi brand. Note there's two main types - bladed cutter and geared crusher. Crusher types are more expensive but probably better in the long run, particularly for large gardens.

A number of issues could be causing your fault.
1. Remove shute and check how freely the motor rotates:
A. If it is stiff, you could have a tightly wound collection of fibrous material stuck under the cutting head - if you do, dig it all out until you can clearly see the drive shaft.
B. If "A" is clear and the motor is still stiff, you have problems with the bearings. They will need to be replaced. Search YouTube for info on how to do it. The cost of parts should be less that $20.
2. If "1" is not the cause, then you have an electrical fault. This could be one of two things:
A. In the past you may have overheated the motor and cooked the electrical windings which are now short circuited and drawing excessive current. If this is the case, the option is to try and find a replacement motor - good luck
B. The overload sensor is stuffed. This could be due to age, electrical contact arcing, dust ingress, or simply mechanical fatigue. In which case you have two options, clean it, or replace it.
