Ideal for the smaller garden. Originally nearly all electric shredders were of the Impact type. The shredding was done by a combination of hammers and blades, which made them very noisy to use and hard on the hands when feeding them.
Newer designs use slow speed; recoil-free spiral cutters or millers to shred the waste material and still allow normal conversation!
