Where Can I Find a Good Quality Electric Compost Shredder that is Cost Effective?
by Pat Williams
(Corte Madera, California, USA)
I have tried three different electric shredders that I run off my solar system, and all have failed within a year or two. The Rover from Australia was the best one, but it is not marketed in the U.S. anymore. I found one on Craigslist locally and bought it, but it was well used.
Patriot seems to have a quality one, but costs about 5 times more than I am willing to spend.
Any ideas out there?
I’m going to have to call in the Tribe here. Guys and Gals, who has experience with electric shredders? Please help Pat.
The majority of my grinding/shredding is accomplished with a gas-powered chipper (see image below), so my experience with electric shredders is limited. This is why our compost shredder page has yet to be built. I plan on purchasing a shredder/chipper in the Spring, so it’ll be great if we can hear some feedback from others.
