Many people are turning away from burning their yard leaves especially of the property has not been raked in quite a while. Save yourself some money and help the environment consider the Flowtron Leaf Shredder for all your garden mulching tasks.
“Very impressed. Easy to set up and works well on a variety of garden wastes. It digested 180+ petunia plants including root balls, woody stem yellow bell cuttings and lantana cuttings. Since all these cuttings were green, I used the largest “green”setting at first but quickly adjusted downward to the medium size level. The machine had to be stopped occasionally to clean out some build up. The cutting strings are still in good shape after an hour of mulching. My rotary composter is working wonderfully on the mulched product.“

“I bought the Flowtron specifically to supply the small pieces of straw needed for the mud plasters and a mud floor in our straw bale home – the straw helps bind and strengthen the mix. A third of a straw bale was taken care of in less than ten minutes and the results were fantastic, saving me hours of cutting by hand.
For any natural builders out there, I highly recommend this machine. Was it hard to put together? Well, after reading the other reviews and glancing at the instructions – which were well meaning and unclear – I just looked at the thing and did what seemed obvious. Trust your own brain, consult the instructions lightly and you’ll have no problem.“

“Great leaf grinder. Think weed whip with a hopper. It’s American made with available parts. My mom has had one with a Craftsman label for 25 years and it’s still running well. Comparing the two side by side, I can only see a different connector (improvement – now metal vs. plastic) to tie the two halves of the tube base.“
