The STIHL electric shredder GHE 355 L handles both larger quantities of hard tree cuttings as well as softer plant trimmings and garden waste. Its powerful motor and sandwich-type blade unit also demonstrate their qualities in regular use. The BRS (Bladerotation Reverse System) reversal mechanism allows you to adapt the blade unit of the garden shredder to the current clippings in no time at all using a rotary switch. Clockwise cutting blades cut hard shredding material into wood chippings, while anti-clockwise shredding blades shred green garden cuttings into compostable matter. The large feed chute is located at a comfortable working height. You can easily feed branches with side shoots as well as large quantities of clippings into the wide feed chute, where they are smoothly drawn in and quickly shredded into fine particles by the machine.
