Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great when it works! I loved this leaf mulcher for my garden and composter material. However, a month after my 2 year warrantee expired, it stopped working completely. I ordered and paid for a replacement, and now continue with my mulching. Still, I am disappointed that the 1st one died on me. I have about 7 Sun Joe products, and love them. I never contacted the company because of the expiration, though only by a month.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made my life easier Works great! We have large oak trees that usually takes 8 huge recycle containers and condensed it down to 2. Had to replace the nylon lines twice due to twigs intermingled with all the leaves Worth the money- save a ton of time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaves gone bye bye I live in a community that is built in the woods so needless to say we have leaves. Boy do we have leaves. I have bagged them, mulched them with mulching lawnmower and the leaves always win. Finally bought the Sun Joe Electric Mulcher/shredder and I’m now winning. Very easy to operate; very easy to replace plastic mulching strips and breaks the leaves down to great mulch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective leaf shredder This shredder does what it claims it can do however; this shredder works best when "handfuls" of leaves are added. Changing shredder string is very easy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good product The machine itself is easy to use and was helpful for me to chop hay for a horse that could not swallow regular hay. It was awesome in that respect. I did find however that the chopped product does tend to get caught up in the area just under the hole to feed in the stuff you want shredded. It then needs to be removed. I also wish the string would last a little longer but these are minor things in the overall performance. Customer service is excellent on this product as I had to return my first machine because of a switch problem and the replaced it with free shipping and a prepaid voucher to send the othe machine back. Very awesome service.

I love having Joe out in my barn chopping hay for Festus my 38 year old mule. I recommend him. I will be using his skills this F,all for mulching leaves too. He is a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful This unit does a great job on leaves! Stop throwing away your leaves. Use them for mulch after running them thru this shredder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mulcher The machine was very easy to assemble. It sheds mountains of leaves very quickly. Sticks take a toll on the plastic cords, but they are easy to replace. I found it worked very well even with wet leaves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My first SUNJOE product Easy to assemble and use. On AZ ash tree leaves, the mulcher "balls" up the leaves in the chute and they don't drop through to the bag very easily. Often had to stop and unclog. Mulching created tremendous amount of dust. Tried to slightly dampen leaves and it helped a little but drawback to this is the leaves don't mulch very fine. Not totally disappointed with this unit. It does mulch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product and customer service Spinning head was broken but thanks to prompt customer service. I recieved new one and I am using it no problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Easy to assemble, easy to use. It's a little slow to feed the leaves cutting line.
Date published: 2018-12-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paid for itself already I have used this item three times this season. Each session lasted about 3 hours. The leaf mulch created when mixed with soil and perhaps some aged manure will negate the need for me to outlay money for mulch and/or topsoil.Also, easy to assemble and appears to be hardy although lightweight. A solid value in my opinion!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shredder The Sun Joe worked even better than I expected. I have a lot oak trees and the leaves often have thick stems or twigs attached. After reading a number of reviews of this product, I wasn't sure how effective it would be at handling these leaves but I decided to give it a try. I was very pleased with the way it tackled these stems and twigs and they were wet to boot. It appeared to me that the degree of reduction was even more than 16:1. I couldn't have asked for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good investment This product is very good. Inexpensive; easy to assemble; effective; good design. The shredding cords will break off if leaves contain a number of even small sticks. They are easy to replace and extras come with the original purpose. Hearing protection is necessary. Dust and particulate mask advisable. Easy breakdown for efficient storage. Good value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of the Box —Not what I expected Somewhat skeptical after opening and assembling the Sun Joe leaf mulcher on the ability and durability of machine to mulch leaves; but was amazed on the ease of assembly and the Sun Joe efficiency mulching leaves. Think of the mulcher as an upside down weed eater. Operating mulcher is as easy of flipping a switch. Changing the mulching cord is very easy and accessible. I used the Sun Joe one season mulching alot of leaves. Stores nicely back in the box. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Easy to set up and use. Very powerful. Cord replacement is simple and takes seconds. I found with heavier wet leaves having it on the lowest setting is best, though it will still bog down and require a little patience. Safety glasses are a must when using this product. It definitely does not do sticks of any size. Good for getting the compost pile going.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product and long overdue I have used my Sun Joe electric leaf blower a number of times now and love it. The mulch I have put in my garden and will continue to do so this fall. Instead of going to the city dump this is the best garden related environmental decision I have made. I love my Sun Joe Electric Leaf Blower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome This product is easy to use and easy to assemble. Only thing I wish for an improvement is that the legs were longer to support a bag to its full capacity vs being low and the bag will fold over onto itself causing to premature filling or false indication that it is full. I am grateful to make this purchase. It has save me money and time using less time to bag leaves, the efficiency of the shredder I find myself using less bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. This product works beautifully. It reduces bulk leaves to minuscule particles. My only wish would be different blades. The string blades do a great job on the leaves but you have to make sure not to put any small branches in the hopper. Stronger, maybe plastic, blades would be nice. Also, a permanent catch bag would be nice instead of the plastic bags. But overall, this is a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat product Simple to assemble and use. Works best when treated as light-duty with dry material - don't overfeed. Makes some dust in the process - stay upwind! I have Southern Magnolias with large leaves which NEVER disappear but did so in this machine. Makes cleaning up a whole lot quicker.
Date published: 2018-10-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good. I have used this twice since I purchased it, and have found no real problems with it. After using it once, I did go out and buy a small 16" diameter trash can that the shredder sits on. It's a perfect fit, and very stable. If I had any complaint, I would have to say it is fairly loud, but I expected that. I also wish the top part was a little deeper, but I a planning on rigging up something to remedy that. Overall though, I really like this shredder, so far!
Date published: 2018-10-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best ideas in garden/yard tools The fact that you can place a trash can under it to catch the shredded material is so much of an improvement over the bag used by a leaf-blower/vacuum system is, by itself, a great selling point. This allows you more time to actually clean up rather than having to stop and empty the bag every few minutes. AND, it does and excellent job of shredding the leaves and small branches into compost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far excellent Bought this item to shred bales of wheat straw abd cane for mulch and compost tumbler. Works great. I use a 12 gauge cord for power per instuctions. Would recommend wearing a face mask and of course eye protection as this thing gets with it. Very happy with it so far

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does a GREAT job on leaves! Simple, easy to use. Chopped up buckets of leaves with no problem. A few branches were too large, however. They went through but at the cord quickly. Look forward to Fall when the leaves arrive again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pine Straw Mulch Happiness! This product was great for my project! I had another brand for several years and loved it too, but it died. After much ado, I chose the SunJoe to replace it. It has several features and more power than the other. The twine is so much easier to change - no tools needed. My whole need for this product is about pine straw. No other reviews seemed to talk about pine straw mulching. I have only reviewed two other things in my life and one of those was a vacation location. I have twenty 100' tall huge pine trees in my yard. I decided to use pine straw to make a pathway in my new wonderful raised bed garden. It took a few days but it is wonderful - almost like a carpet! You have to set the setting on "coarse" instead of "pine straw" or it would take forever and more twine than you could stand to use. My pathway is 84' x 3' x 2" thick. I did have to change the twine for every trash bag full of mulch. And you much be patient - go slow and put a big handful in at a time. It takes about 20 minutes to fill a bag. I am female and 5'10" tall. After each bag I changed the twine and rested and encouraged myself to do another one. It's a slow process. But - I LOVE IT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Shredder for Light Duty Works great for shredding dry leaves--I do this to mix in with my compost pile. Does not work well for wet leaves or grass--plugs up the shredder. Overall, I am happy with my purchase.
