The only electric leaf shredders we recommend are those with a large barrel shape with a large string trimmer device that chops the leaves. Any shredders with smaller openings just get clogged up.

Shredding leaves with a traditional gas shredder/mulcher can disturb the environment with noxious air and loud noise. Thankfully, with the electric WORX Leaf Mulcher, you can put the 'green' back in 'green thumb'.
Showcasing a powerful 13 Amp motor that delivers 8,500 RPMs, the WORX Leaf Mulcher will reduce a mass of dead leaves and twigs to 1/11th of its original size. That means you won't be lugging 11 bags of whole leaves to the curb for distribution or disposal--instead, you'll only have to worry about a single bag.
With the WORX Leaf Mulcher's 13-inch cut diameter and oversized mouth, you can mulch up to 53 gallons of leaves per minute. Acres of dried leaves can be collected and pulverized into manageable mounds of mulch in practically no time at all.
Create Mulch and Compost
It is estimated that almost 25% of the urban waste stream is made of yard waste and debris. In the fall, it can account for more than 60% of what flows into your local landfill.
The WORX Leaf Mulcher actually transforms your yard's dead leaves and debris, which would normally end up in a landfill, into vitamin-rich mulch and compost that can be recycled into your garden or flowerbeds.
Shredded leaf mass furnishes nutrients that assist in new plant growth during the growing season. Furthermore, mixing mulch into your garden and flower beds will aerate the soil and encourage new growth. Additionally, leaf mulch will increase water retention in the soil, reducing watering time and saving money.
Compact, Versatile, and Easy to Use
At less than 20 pounds, the WORX Leaf Mulcher features a compact design, in which the disassembled parts nest neatly together for convenient off-season storage on a shelf in your shed or garage. Setup takes only a few minutes, with absolutely no additional tools required!
In addition, the mulcher features a dust-reducing clean-air motor cooling system. Air and mulched leaves are separated through an external cooling air intake and exhaust to significantly reduce dust generation.
For further convenience, The WORX Leaf Mulcher's safe Flex-a-Line bladeless mulching system features tool-less cutting line replacement and a universal bag holder that accepts both paper and plastic bags. To top it off, an oversized on/off switch allows for easy, hassle-free operation.
The WORX heavy-duty Leaf Mulcher is the one machine that will end hours of misery once and for all and will make fall cleanup fast and easy!
