About this product
Spear & Jacksons most powerful garden shredder. The powerful 2800W motor combines with a crushing drum action to easily tackle garden waste up to 42mm in diameter. The crushing action powers a rotating drum that pulls the garden waste in where it is crushed into chippings or mulch. This shredder is quieter than the impact version and the drum doesn't need replacing as often as it only rotates at 45rpm.
For your safety it comes with a plunger so your hands are kept away. It also has overload protection and reverse function to help remove jams. If you need to open it this can be easily done without tools. Automatic safety switch prevents operation while you're cleaning. Full instructions supplied.
Shredders will help you to get more waste into your recycling bin or composter. You can also use it as mulch – perfect for keeping weeds at bay on your flowerbeds, reducing moisture loss from your flower pots while returning nutrients to your soil.
With a heavy-duty metal frame construction, large 60L collection container and robust wheels for manoeuvrability this is perfect for any garden. For extra peace of mind Spear & Jackson offers a 3-year guarantee on all Garden Power products.

Quieter and easier than previous shredders.
This is my first slow speed crusher shredder and it is far better than any of the high speed spinning cutting disc shredders I have previously used. Less work and more convenient as its totally enclosed large collection box means it sits in a corner of the garage and is used in the dry. Would not want a larger box as it shreds so fine I can barely lift it if when completely full. Very pleased, especially as the set-up and adjusting instructions were clear and brief.
Great piece of kit!
Brilliant for price sturdy machine made loads of mulch for garden instead of buying bark. Very impressed with this machine & not too noisy.
Worked brilliantly, out of the box. Reduced the branches down to under 25%
No. The Spear & Jackson S28ES Crushing Quiet Garden Shredder is for shredding garden waste (leaves, twigs etc.) and not for paper.
Argos does not have a shredder that is capable of shredding a whole newspaper in one go.
However, for a paper shredder that can take up to 10 sheets of A4 at one time, you might want to consider:

Having contacted the supplier for you I can let you know
45 rpm is right. - regarding the Quiet Garden Shredder- the cutting device is big and heavy and it cuts the fibrous and woody garden waste by a big torque with low speed.
Normally, the impact shredder often has a high speed. This is because the cutting device is light, and needs a high speed to provide enough cutting power.
