    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

    Try Bunnings Special Orders. They used to sell the Talon brand.
    Alternatively, detach your cutter head and take it in to Bunnings and compare it with the Ozito shredder they're currently selling. It looks like it came out of the same factory as the Talon brand, might be an interchangeable head.

    With a lot of those items, sadly, you can find yourself up for an expensive part (and no guarantee) whereas for a few $ more, you can get a complete new unit, with a guarantee. (And your old unit is now rubbish). The head and the blades will be the most expensive part of the tool apart from the motor (maybe).

    And while I'm content with my Talon at the price I paid for it and the amount of work I ask of it, I wouldn't buy one again. I'd go for the more expensive grinder-shredder machines, as against something with whirling little blades that are difficult to sharpen. (And easy to cut yourself with!)

    Start with Bunnings Special orders. They aren't sold by Bunnings under the same name anymore, but identical items are being sold under different labels.
    A quick Google turned up:
    https://www.outdoorking.com/chippers-shredders/talon-chipper-parts/talon-ryobi-mcculloch-homelite-chipper-blade-579250001
    Which looks like the right part. They also have the weirdo screws at $2.75 ea - probably worth it, $11 for 4 screws. But! - I can't verify that this is a good company, I've never dealt with them.

    I have sharpened my old blades on a belt sander - but even with gloves and locking pliers this is very dangerous. And you have to keep them cool, dunk them in water, or the steel loses its tempering; becomes soft.
