he STIHL GHE 355 Electric Chipper/Shredder is designed for dealing with both large quantities of hard tree cuttings and softer plant trimmings or garden waste. It comes with a powerful motor and a sandwich-type blade unit which consistently performs well in regular use. A standout feature of this model is the BRS (Blade rotation Reverse System) reversal mechanism which lets you easily adjust the blade unit’s function based on the type of material you’re shredding, all through a simple rotary switch.
When cutting blades are set to rotate clockwise, they efficiently shred hard material into wood chips. On the other hand, setting the blades to rotate anticlockwise lets them efficiently shred green garden cuttings into compostable material. The large feed chute is positioned at a comfortable working height, enabling you to easily feed in branches with side shoots and large quantities of clippings. These are smoothly drawn into the machine and quickly shredded into fine particles.
- BRS reversal mechanism allows easy switching between hard and soft materials for shredding, preserving the blade sharpness for longer and aiding in processing large volumes of material.
- Large, noise-insulated feed chute for easy filling, reduced operational noise, and an integrated splash guard for user protection against swirled-up shredded material.
- Safety lock that prevents the shredder from starting automatically during maintenance or blade change procedures. The safety switch trips and interrupts the current flow as soon as the closure screws on the machine are unscrewed.
- Power and performance: A powerful motor and sandwich-type blade unit provide high shredding efficiency for both hard tree cuttings and softer plant trimmings.
- User comfort: The large feed chute is positioned at a comfortable working height, allowing for easy feeding of large quantities of clippings and branches with side shoots.
