5 Reasons Why You Should Buy a Bosch Garden Shredder
Bosch is the dominant manufacturer in the Garden Shredder market – and for good reason. Here are 5 reasons why you should seriously consider buying a Bosch Garden Shredder.
1 Best range of electric garden shredders
Every Bosch Garden Shredder is top of its class:
- Best rotary/impact/rapid shredder – Bosch AXT Rapid 2200 – More Amazon reviews than all other shredders of all types combined. Average rating 4 stars. The few negative reviews concern the cutting blades. There seems to have been a poor batch of blades in the earliest machines – this problem was fixed long ago.
- Best quiet crusher type shredder Bosch AXT 25D
- Innovative quiet turbine cutter shredder designed to cope equally well with green and woody waste – Bosch AXT 25TC
2 Build quality
All Bosch products are built to a high quality. In the impact shredders you get very hard, tough blades which seem to last much longer than those from other manufacturers. The quiet shredders are immensely strong – I have not heard of any Bosch quiet shredders failing in operation.
Bosch is at the forefront of garden shredder innovation. Their powertrain, motors and drive on the ‘Rapid’ range of shredders set the standard for smooth, continuous rotary shredder operations.
Bosch was the first company to use, the now discontinued, Archimedes screw in quiet shredders.
Their current range of quiet garden shredders use gear teeth and static plates. Where customers struggle to adjust the cutter on other makes of shredder Bosch users are generally pretty happy with the one-click adjustment offered on the Bosch machines.
Most recently Bosch introduced their turbine cut range of shredders designed to cope equally well with green and woody waste.
The integrated collector boxes on the later Bosch quiet and turbine cut shredders are a step forward in designing safety into the machines.
No other manufacturer comes close to matching Bosch on garden shredder innovation.
4 Top customer service
We have heard of few problems customers have experienced particularly with the impact shredders. It seems there may have been a bad batch of blades included with the early batches of the Rapid AXT 2200 launch. Whenever Bosch has been informed of this problem they have invariably quickly fixed the problem at no cost to the customer.
There are far less reports of customers needed support from Bosch than for other manufacturers. Whenever service is required it is always exemplary.
5 Long parts and labour guarantee
2 years parts and labour warranty comes as standard with all Bosch garden shredders.
