    Really my only gripe (and word of caution) is the model designation. Bosch currently offer two VERY DIFFERENT shredders with almost identical appearance and names: the fantastic AXT 25 TC, and the cheaper AXT 25 D. You could be forgiven for thinking one is just a slightly different model of the other (perhaps for a different market, or higher power rating, or new colour scheme), however the cutting technology is completely different. You can google “bosch axt 25 tc vs d” to find out more, but the long and short of it is that the D only handles woody materials, and is prone to jamming; the TC will handle anything, from thick branches to vines, brambles, leafy material, damp soft shoots, and even cardboard – and it hasn’t jammed on me once. Of course, it is rather more expensive.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    The only criticism is the machine is quite top heavy. It’s sturdy and stable in use, but care must be made when moving the shredder on its narrow track wheels. I’ve had cheaper shredders that would clog, both bladed and rotor system with revolving cogs. This Bosch product uses a turbine that rarely jams and can take almost any type of garden waste. I considered a petrol chipper which would have been far more expensive and overkill for the average sized garden. I can recommend this machine for anyone that has had a cheaper alternative product before, or a first time buyer; you won’t be disappointed. Occasionally you may need to use the supplied plastic “wedge” to compact loose material, but overall this is an excellent product.

    Powerful, even with damp or green wood.

    I bought this in the summer to tackle of well overgrown garden I thought it’d be too much for this Bosch god I was wrong it chewed and mulched everything inside and the price was very very good

    I have owned a Bosch AXT Rapid shredder for >10 years; this has a rotating blade but of late the centre mount had become unstable, meaning it didn’t keep a wide enough opening for cutting. With a large quantity of hedge trimming to shred, I needed something to quickly shift the volume of material. The AXT 25D was certainly helpful and safe to use with the constraint of not chopping narrow twigs. I also will need to learn how much to alter settings to fully chop through the larger stems as well. I require suitably small pieces for incorporating into a compost mix or for mulch. Overall satisfactory with the caveat of needing a second shredder for small pieces, but that also takes more time to finish the task. I wonder if it’s possible to design a combined crushing action with a cutting blade?

    Given mine some abuse you wouldn’t think it could handle don’t have any problems. If you are thinking about it just get one. No more paying for waste removal just chuck it back on the beds

    Excellent heavy duty shredder for my medium/large garden. Chewed up a variety of garden stuff in no time at all. Far superior to a Mountfield I had been using previously. Useful waste collection box underneath which was suitably large to avoid frequent trips to empty it. A good buy.

    I bought this shredder after a lot of research and reading the various helpful reviews from other users and watching a couple of You Tube videos of the shredder in action.
    I have been impressed with the power and its ability to digest the larger branched with ease. An added bonus is that it is not nearly as noisy as our last high speed shredder.
    Two points that I really like. The reverse action which instantly releases any jammed material and the large plastic box that slides underneath to catch the shredded material which is easy to remove to empty.
    Be warned though, this is a heavy machine and although it is on wheels does require care moving around the garden to avoid tipping it over.
    Overall very satisfied and if you register with Bosch you get a 3 year warranty.

    I use it to deal with copious green garden waste, too large to compost and too green to burn.
    Positives:
    – Much quieter than I’d expected
    – No significant blockages. It works best when there’s a branch that can be picked up by the cutters. Any leafy build up can be easily cleared by pushing a branch through (side branches drag the build-up through
    – The collection box is a good size, big enough so it doesn’t fill too quickly and not so large it’s awkward to transport
    Negatives:
    – The machine is quite heavy and the pulling handle is the same width as the machine, which is quite narrow for manoeuvering over rough sloping ground
    – The shredded material is a bit larger than I’d expected and will take some time to compost.
    – The feeder is fine for branches, but rather shallow and narrow for leafy handfuls. A removeable funnel would have been handy

    This chipper, or as it is known in the house The Chopperizer, tackles anything you chuck at it. By anything I do mean any kind of branches, leaves or grasses (not mown lawn but that is already chopped so why would you do that?)

    The only times I have thought it’s not doing so well is because the chopped material has built up underneath the cutter output. A little shake of the collecting box and you can keep going. Not every branch is chopped, if it’s quite soft it can just keep squeezed and bent into the output. I cleared a lot of thorn bushes and newer growth was stubborn. However it still achieved what I wanted, which was a reduction of volume and the opportunity to either fit more material in my garden waste bin or composting bin. This means we can clear and manage more of the garden at a time without having to stop due to lack of space.

    I also have to say that it’s pretty quiet for what it is doing, the most noise coming from when you turn it off and the speed reduces to a halt (gears and all that) but it’s not noisy at all. In fact it really has the most satisfying chomp chomp when you feed it.

    Final thoughts on manoeuvrability… yes it’s heavy and awkward but I didn’t find it difficult to move around so long as you don’t lift it too much otherwise the top-heavy nature of it means it’ll want to up-end itself. I think Bosch could have helped by providing easier grab points but I’ve only ever moved it around with the top feeder bit in the collection box – maybe I’m supposed to use that handle and now I think about it…. oops perhaps they did think of it. Will have to try next time! Whilst I’m sure moving it around might be important or harder for some, once it’s in position it really does a great job so I wouldn’t mark it down on that basis.

    After the old Al-ko shredder that I’d had for 10+ years died, I was in the market for a new one. I rarely purchase on impulse, preferring to to do plenty of research first. This was no different.There were one or two poor reviews for this, and I always read the negatives, as I find the glowing positive reviews are often based on a single use (or even worse, what it looks like without any use!) However, the positives far outweighed the negatives and seemed genuine, so I decided to bite the bullet.

    This review is based upon 3 years of fairly light use. I’d say it gets a run-out around three or four times a year. I agree it’s a lot of cash for such light use, but the key is, it earns it’s keep when needed. My old Al-ko wasn’t really man enough to tackle branches over 20mm. I’d spend more time clearing blockages from the unit than actually shredding. (My fault for trying to do things too quickly and overloading it)

    Before I tell you how good the AX25 TC is, I think I should clear a small point up. In the marketing text, it states this will deal with green waste. Now please do not equate “green waste” with “weeds”. Green waste refers to freshly cut branches, not bunches of stinging nettles. This unit will not do a great job on soft waste. Give it the stuff it was designed for and you’ll see what it can do.

    I reluctantly had to take down a medium sized oak tree and after saving what I could for firewood, I was left with several very large piles of smaller branches. This would have been a mammoth task using my old shredder with a lot of the branches needing to be trimmed. The thicker ones wouldn’t go through and would need to be manually cut into short pieces for disposal/composting. A job such as this would be a very good test for my new acquisition. The first branch I fed in was chewed up in seconds, as was the second. Growing in confidence, I decided to give the AX a real test and selected a particularly bushy off-cut with a base diameter of at least 40mm (sorry, I didn’t measure it) with multiple branches and sub-branches coming off the main stem. I fed it into the maw of the AX and watched in awe as it munched through the complete off-cut without a hiccup. It continued performing at this level and I completed the branch disposal operation in a couple of half-day stints – far quicker than anticipated.

    Now I’d be lying if I said it has dealt with everything I’ve thrown at it. The odd item has jammed and activated the auto-stop, causing me to use the reverse button, but that’s invariably been down to me attempting to force the shredder to digest a branch union that way exceeded the 40mm max size

    It was in use again last weekend, dealing with an overgrown leylandii offcuts (true green waste!) with no complaints, which prompted me to write this review. One big plus point is it doesn’t rely on having razor sharp edges to work. Rotary shredders rely on their cutting blades being sharp to work as expected. It is so easy to blunt them (when you fail to completely clean a root for example.) I haven’t noticed any significant degradation in shredding performance since I’ve been using the AX25

    The only real negative I can find, is it’s weight distribution. You have to be careful when wheeling it over uneven ground as it has a distinct tendency to tip. Mine has some of the external plastic broken when I was unable to save it from crunching into the ground…

    So, to summarise. If you want to shred weeds, lay them on the grass and run a rotary mower over them. If you need to deal with woody garden waste, The AX25 TC is simply brilliant. It’s powerful, reliable and will reduce a formidable heap of woody waste to a pile of chippings with ease. I wouldn’t be without it.

    Really good for fresh branches that you can ‘lop’ with long handled pruners – that’s 25 mm or an inch. It will shred bigger but why bother? Bigger than that size can go on the fire or the back of the car to the tip. They burn without much nuisance smoke as no leaves and could always be used as fuel for a friends burner – if you have a chainsaw to log them . . .
    The problem with branches is the side branches. This shredder has a gearstick mesh shaped guard which stops your fingers going into the moving blades. This means that using the loppers you need to trim side branches to fit depending on how well they bend. This makes feeding the shredder a continuous job. My pile from a felled hawthorn tree looked daunting but I got through in a couple of hours to mulch on the compost heap and a neat pile of logs for a fire. I’ll try and upload photos. I’m pleased!

    If you can lop it you can shred it!

    We have a large vegetable garden as well as a big garden so it generates a lot of prunings and stalks that need disposing of. I’ve just upgraded my compost bins so they’re large enough to cope with the volume so having a shredder to chip everything up small enough to compost quickly was essential. I was going to buy the Stihl domestic shredder but no-one had any stock for a few months so I looked around for the next best thing. The Bosch had good online reviews and for the price its going to be a good investment. It works a treat IF you push soft cuttings through SLOWLY but it handles woodier cuttings up to 30mm pretty well. I would have liked a wider throat to load and of course there are those available as expensive petrol shredders but all round I’m pleased with how it handles anything we cut and if it does jam up, as it inevitably does when shredding softer stuff, its easy to remove the front cover and clean out around the blades. Good safety devices, the machine can’t run with the cover off and handy push STOP button if anything gets jammed.

    We have a large vegetable garden as well as a big garden so it generates a lot of prunings and stalks that need disposing of. I’ve just upgraded my compost bins so they’re large enough to cope with the volume so having a shredder to chip everything up small enough to compost quickly was essential. I was going to buy the Stihl domestic shredder but no-one had any stock for a few months so I looked around for the next best thing.
