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.

Date PurchasedNov 2018

Good product, works well for size.

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

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

Its designed to dump straight down from the exit. To collect the chips you have three option:
#1 Dump straight onto the ground (good when the location is where you are building your compost heap)
#2 Dump into a short wheel barrow positioned under the outlet
#3 Dump into a heavy duty bag (my preference - I secure it to the outside of the outlet with a stretchy rubber strap. When my compost bins are full I just leave the clippings in the bag to begin composting)
