As with the roller garden shredder, there are certain aspects to take into consideration when addressing the impact shredder:

Blades. How many blades does the shredder have? More than one blade will help the shredder remain sharper for longer.

Accessibility. How easy are the blades to access? Blades will need replacing at some point in their life. The easier they are to access, the quicker the process will be.

Shredding. How large is the feeder hole that leads to the shredder? This will enable the user ease of access and speed up the process dramatically.

This will mean that at no point will a job be started and have to stop to go and purchase new parts like blades.

Cleaning: Pay careful attention to how the product is cleaned. Some models can prove difficult which may affect the overall life expectancy of the item.
