The garden should be a source of pride and an oasis of relaxation. It is also a piece of nature that needs to be cared for and managed effectively. This can be a fulfilling task for many amateur gardeners, when reliable tools are available to make gardening easier – such as a practical garden shredder.

Garden shredders are incredibly useful machines for several reasons: They tidy up waste such as lawn, tree and hedge cuttings, leaves and withered flowers. A shredder creates space and relieves you of bulky branches, bushy twigs and plant trimmings produced throughout each year. In the process, shredders significantly reduce the volume of the cuttings. These can then be more easily disposed of, or used as the basis for mulch or compost. In addition, a garden shredder provides valuable raw material.

The composted shredded material contains exactly the right balance of nutrients that your garden plants need in order to flourish. To aid this, the shredder’s blade systems shred the plant trimmings so finely that they quickly decompose to form high quality fertiliser.

Looking for a garden shredder? STIHL shredders can effectively process any raw materials that the garden creates, such as tree, hedge or lawn cuttings. STIHL garden shredders ensure that hard branch material is chipped, while soft organic waste and leaves are shredded. This forms an excellent basis for the creation of valuable compost and mulching material which makes the garden really flourish. Whether you are looking for electric shredders with chipping or shredding units or electric combination shredding and chipping units, we have the garden shredder for you.

STIHL Garden Shredders are not only a valuable asset for your garden, but also for the environment. Our machines are also produced using recyclable materials. A STIHL Garden Shredder pays off in the long term – for your garden, your wallet, and the environment.

Shredders convert large volumes of tree and shrub cuttings, as well as other plant trimmings, into fine shredded material. This can then be used as ground covering material or as compost to form fertiliser and humus. The shredded plant trimmings can be composted in a dedicated bin or composter and different types of material can also be mixed in. By shredding material first, the creation of compost is quickened as the material has already begun to be broken down before inclusion.
