6 Reasons to Buy a Bosch AXT Rapid 2200
We make very little secret of it – we are big fans of Bosch garden shredders. If you want to know why you should check out our earlier post – 5 Reasons to Buy a Bosch Garden Shredder. Now we want to turn our attention to the reasons why you should buy a Bosch AXT 2200 Rapid Shredder.
Any buying decision for any product or service should be based on the best fit for what you actually need. All too often people read a few reviews, pick out the ones that support their own views and then go out and buy. If I could afford it I would love to have a Lamborghini sat on my drive but it is not much use if I want to take the family out or to carry my golf clubs and the weekly shopping. It is really not that different when buying a garden shredder.
So, first things first. Here are a few questions you need to answer before buying any Garden Shredder.
- How big is your garden? Rotary shredders like the Bosch AXT 2200 Rapid are best suited to small to medium gardens with reasonably low amounts of shredding.
- What is the ratio of green, soft stemmed waste compared to harder, woody waste? If you are looking at more than 50% then a rotary shredder is likely to be fine.
- If you have a higher percentage of woody waste what is the normal size of cutting likely to be? If it is mostly hedges and bushes or small trees where cuttings are normally no thicker than your thumb then a rotary shredder is probably OK.
- Is noise a problem? Noise isn’t normally a problem for the shredder operator – they can wear ear defenders. However, if you need to use rotary shredders for extended periods and you have very closely sited neighbours you may find your neighbours start to complain.
OK, your garden is not too big, you are going to dispose of predominantly soft stemmed waste with the majority of your woody waste not too thick, and you have understanding neighbours. Great – a rotary shredder is for you. Here’s 5 reasons why we think you should buy a Bosch AXT 2200 Rapid:
- It has more reviews (129 at the time or writing) on Amazon than any other garden shredder. The vast majority of the reviews are positive. This is more than for all other garden shredders sold on Amazon combined.
- Bosch is renowned for build quality. The AXT Rapid is very well built and will give good service for years to come.
- Double edged cutting blades. Rotary shredder blades take a pounding. The blades in the Bosch are specially hardened and are not meant to be sharpened by users. The ability to turn the blade over so the previously trailing edge is presented prolongs the life of the blades.
- Well matched motors and power train. All that motor power is delivered where it matters – at the blades.
- Bosch customer service. We have said it before. Bosch deliver great customer service.
- 2 years parts and labour warranty
- And a bonus reason – the Bosch AXT 2200 Rapid is incredibly good value especially over at Amazon who seem to consistenly offer the best price online.
