What users are saying

“…It shreds brush and leaves quite easily and is much quieter and cleaner than the gas powered units I have had in the past. I noticed it also comes with an extra set of blades which will save me time looking for in the future….”

“…The Eco shredder has been great so far. I bought it here and it was delivered quickly. It is very easy to put together– it is pretty much assembled in the box– you just put on the top chute, the wheels, and the handle. It has a good amount of power. It only jams when fed 1 inch or larger branches with knots, and those are really easy to clear with the included tool that makes the motor turn manually. It is very quiet for a shredder. It appears to be very safe, also. It comes with a replacement set of blades for when the time comes, and all the tools to replace those blades. ..”

    The ECO es1600 appears to be the shredder I would like, but can you get replacement parts for it?

    We bought the Eco-Shredder last year. We live in central Florida and we have sandy soil. We bought it to shred dry cow/horse manure for our backyard garden. It does the job easily. Our garden produces vegetables without much fertilizer–tomatoes, collards, egg plants, bell peppers, broccoli, lettuce and so much more. We love this little guy. As I write this, we now have over 400 pounds placed in trash bins for our fall and winter vegies. Keep it clean!

      We forgot…wear a nose/mouth mask when shredding manure!
