Overview

First of all, this is NOT A FLAIL MOWER.

WHAT is a Power Shredder?

The Power Shredder is a unique, one-of-a-kind machine, designed and developed through years of research and development (as well as listening to our customers).

The Power Shredder is a bespoke machine developed for an outstanding performance in extremely dense vegetation where standard mowers would fail or:

-Cannot handle heavy vegetation

-Unable to cut vegetation fine enough

-Too slow

-Consume too much fuel

-Too difficult to pull in wet or rough terrain

-Unreliable

-Need too much maintenance

No job too tough.

The Power Shredder has been developed with a multitude of design and manufacturing innovations which NO MANUFACTURER has been able to replicate. The Power Shredder can manage areas such as lough areas, scrub and marshes consistently proving to be the only machine to do so.

Utilising an industry leading powerhouse engine.

Fitted with V-Twin engines designed and expertly engineered to handle the most demanding applications. These monster engines feature several advanced technologies while also being lighter and more compact than other leading competitor engines on the market.

Don’t just take our word..

Particularly effective in wetland areas (where there is an invasion of woody plants / extremely dense vegetation) the Power Shredder had been tried and tested both by us and the thousands of customers who own one. We are proud to supply these units to our commercial customers such as the RSPB group for continual management of challenging conservation areas.

Optional Rear Roller

An optional Rear Roller is fitted behind the machine and acts to roll out what has been cut to leave a clean finish.

Double Bogie Wheels

Outstanding results in dense vegetation!!

Outstanding results in dense vegetation!!

The double axle 4 wheeled pivot bogie system is useful in particularly damp areas to minimise damage to the ground, which is key in conservation and restoration situations. Heavy machinery can often do more harm than good in wetland areas and and therefore a quad or UTV teamed with the Power Shredder that can do the job more effectively whilst also having less of an impact on the ground.

The double bogie wheels allow for a smoother travel on rough ground which gives a more efficient cut.

Testimonials

When we first came to the farm here there were lots of brambles. The farm hadn't been that well looked after. My husband doesn't drive the tractor but will drive the gator so he can use it too. The Power Shredder chops better than the topper and cuts it up small. Penny Hutchinson - Co Down, NI
‘I am extremely happy with my Power Shredder, it is the perfect machine for handling my rushes and getting into those wet areas where the tractor has no access.Eddie Mullaney - Boyle, Roscommon
'I have shredded over 10 hectares so far and the Quad-X Shredder works like a charm. 'Snippy' is a sure game changer on my organic blueberry farm'Willie Bevan - Canada
‘I find my power shredder to be the perfect solution to keeping my heavy rushes in check. It also comes in handy for topping!
The great thing about the shredder is its ability to cope with the dense weed infestation. I found that using other equipment such as toppers didn’t produce the fine chop that the power shredder leaves behind. This allows a faster rejuvenation of my sward. The double bogie feature that I requested for my shredder meant that I was able to cut in wetter conditions that I couldn’t go with my tractor. I couldn’t be happier.’Mark Hamilton - Stirling, Scotland
Power shredder really good machine it's busiest is March and April cleaning of ground after sheep before slurry goes out double bogie axel really good for ruff ground good parts are hard wearing if you need parts you have them within the second day. Sean Donohue - Co. Fermanagh
I purchased the Shredder 3 yrs ago now & have completed a lot of work with it on my farm here in south Leitrim, I find it to be A VERY RELIABLE & EASILY pulled piece of machinery.
I found it to be a very good machine in wet ground NOT HAVING TO WAIT FOR DRY WEATHER/ OR LAND TO DRY TO TRAVEL ON IT WITH A TRACTOR.
It's very easy pulled due to its BOGIE WHEELS.
IN HEAVY RUSHES AREAS I RISE UP THE SHEDDER TO CUT HIGH THEN LET DOWN AND CUT ANTI CLOCKWISE FOR A CLEAN FINISH ON ROUND 2
THE SHREDDER’S CUTS THE RUSHES TO FINE PIECES - NO NEED FOR COLLECTION AFTERWARDS
IT’S A VERY EASILY MAINTAINED MACHINE IN 3 YRS WORK HERE I ONLY NEEDED TO REPLACE the Belts & 1 BEARING.
I WOULD DEFIENTLY RECOMMEND THIS MACHINE TO ANY FARMER

With increased restrictions on burning of heather in the Peak District National Park, I have tried a number of different ATV and tractor mounted mowers to cut heather. The results with the Quad-X Power Shredder were amazing, given that we were cutting growth more akin to small shrubs than heather. The 23HP V twin, with break bar and double bogies straddles the ruts and gave a smooth ride and clean cut. This machine was able to macerate the cut heather into a very fine mulch leaving little detritus to worry about as a uppressant. The Quad-X machine from an engineering point is excellent.Neil Walker - Grouse Moor, Peak District National Park
Nothing but praise for the machine. If I was offered my money back now, and more, I wouldn’t take it. I’d pick the machine no doubtPatrick Cremmins - Co Kerry
I purchased my power shredder for the quad back in 2014 for maintaining my 10 acre smallholding at various times in the year. I mainly treat rushes and other common weeds. I found the spread and distribution of the mulch to be good. The weight and durability of the shredder is exactly what I was looking for!Damian Kelly - Co. Antrim
The thing I like about the Power Shredder is its ability to cope with dense weeds. This machine is well built without being too heavily weighted. This has made it suited for the wet areas on my land. It saves times and leaves the output in a fine even chop. I am more than happy with the performance of the machine.Trevor Jameson -
The Quad-X Power Shredder mulcher is a great job. I am using it for cutting heavy rushes on a mountain to clear ground for woodland plantations. She is a mighty yoke, a great piece of equipment. With the 500 cc quad she does well on hill ground. With 1600 acres of hill ground she’s just the yoke for mulching rushes without poaching the ground.

I am a contractor and I travel throughout Donegal, where there is a big demand for cutting rushes. With most the places that I am cutting often on wet, rough ground the Quad bike and Powershredder is by far the best solution for cutting in soft areas. It also allows me to get through those narrow gates and inaccessible areas that a tractor couldn’t reach. Other cheaper machines that I tried using were simply not up to the job, they weren’t strong enough. The Quad-X Powershredder is designed well, built strongly with an unmatched reliable cutting performance. I couldn’t be happier. Derek Schmidt - Co. Donegal
