Product description
The Einhell GC-KS 2540 CB electric shredder is a reliable tool for the speedy shredding of material. For effective operation it has two long-lasting, robust reversible blades made of special steel which are driven by a powerful 2,500 W motor with a no-load speed of 4,500 rpm. The large funnel opening means it is convenient to use and makes it easy to feed in the material you want to shred, for branches up to 40 mm in diameter. The funnel has a safety interlock and can be swung down for cleaning and maintenance. The safety switch on the debris box makes the usage even more safe. There is a motor circuit breaker for protection against overloading. The shredder can be transported quickly and easily around the home grounds and garden to where you want to use it thanks to the robust chassis with wheels. An integrated practical transport handle makes this even easier. The Einhell GC-KS 2540 CB electric shredder has a transparent, sturdy collection box. Also included is a prodder for quickly and safely dislodging any pieces which are left stuck in the funnel.
