Petrol Shredder

Petrol Shredder

The shredder is a device that allows to finely grind the branches and cutting residues of trees and shrubs; thanks to this equipment it is possible to compact very much the green waste that is produced in the garden, which if desired can also be used for composting. Thanks to a bio-shredder It is also possible to grind medium-sized branches, with a diameter greater than 3-4 centimeters. Often these equipments are used in case of pruning of big trees, or for those who manage or own a park or a woodland plot. The engine is quite noisy, but it has much more power than an electric motor, at least in the field of gardening equipment. Furthermore, the operation is inexpensive, because a small motor does not need large quantities of fuel to stay on for long periods of time.

Used models

Contrary to what happens for electric bio-shredders, equipment equipped with a combustion engine is designed for a long service life, even uninterrupted; they can be used for many years, without the motor being affected by wear. These devices are generally designed for gardeners, or professionals who prune large trees, and therefore also have a fairly high price. For hobbyists it is convenient to look for a used machine on the market, so as to contain the initial price. Clearly, as the years go by, some internal components tend to get ruined; it is therefore important to check that the shredder has blades that are still very sharp, and that the motor works without problems, leaks or other. In this way it is quite economical to equip oneself, even in a small garden, with professional equipment.

Petrol Shredder Prices

Generally i bio-shredders they are equipment designed for professionals in the sector, who must grind large quantities of green or dry material daily; for this reason, prices tend to be decidedly higher than those of shredders with electric motors. Prices generally stand at around 900-1500 euros, and are closely linked to the power of the engine, and to the maximum dimensions of the branches that can be loaded inside the mill. Prices of this type are motivated by the fact that these devices are practically indestructible, and can work strenuously for many years; in addition to its long life, this type of motor guarantees a long working life even in daily life, allowing you to shred materials for many hours even every day. These are professional tools, suitable for constant and continuous use over the years.

Choose the shredder

The shredders are increasingly widespread devices, not only among professionals; generally for hobbyists models with an electric motor are preferred, because with 300-500 euros you can buy a medium-sized model, the ignition is simpler, and because the engine noise is much lower. Usually these shredders are perfect for a small garden, where the pruning residues are reduced and generally the equipment is kept on for a few hours a year. However, if you own a condominium park, or a small portion of the forest, an electric motor model does not suit your needs, as it could never chop the larger twigs, and above all it would force you to grind the material a little at a time , over the days. THE bio-shredders they are much more robust and powerful, and allow long periods of continuous operation.
