Best Leaf Shredder makes short work of your leaves

leaf-shredderHere is yet another “Best” device by the folks over at Hammacher – apparently, fall might be still quite some time away but this does not mean you do not need to be prepared to face all that fall has to offer. For instance, after sweeping up all of the leaves in your yard, you will need to bag them and place it in the trash, but what if there was another way to get rid of those leaves? I am not referring to open burning, that’s a big no-no, but rather, through the $169.95 Best Leaf Shredder.

The Best Leaf Shredder happens to be an easy-to-use, emission-free device that is capable of shredding leaves quickly and neatly. In fact, during tests, it managed to go through 50 gallons of leaves in a mere 2.5 minutes, which is less than 10% of the amount of time required by inferior units. Not only that, it did not choke on the occasional twig or let any leaf pass through unshredded. Sporting a cutting system that is not too far away from that of an oversized weed trimmer, the Best Leaf Shredder sports a powerful 13-amp motor and cutting line that is capable of turning 4 1/2 bags of bulky foliage into a single compact bag of rich mulch, now how about that for efficiency?
