Eliet’s top-of-the-range petrol shredder, the Major Pro, is driven by an extremely powerful 9.0hp engine and delivers an incredible 40,000 chops per-minute, so it’s suitable for the most demanding domestic waste-processing applications.
The engine itself is a Honda GX270; a precision-engineered overhead-valve type unit that you’ll find cheap to run; quiet in operation; and environmentally-sound. A cast-iron cylinder-sleeve and a dual-element air-filter combine to maximise engine-life; while an automatic decompression mechanism greatly lessens resistance in the starter-cord for almost effort-free pull-starts.
The Eliet Major Pro Petrol Shredder utilises Eliet’s unique and widely acclaimed Chopping Principle, whereby a series of 20 hardened-steel shredder-blades work to turn all manner of kitchen- and garden-waste (including branches up to 55mm-diameter) into a mulch that you can compost or spread around flowerbeds to help retain moisture.
Power is transmitted to the cutting-gear through a heavy-duty belt-drive, which not only ensures optimum torque-transfer, but also allows any sudden overload shock to be absorbed, in turn sparing the engine and crankshaft from damage.
Thanks to its extra-large shredding surface and expansive hopper opening, the Eliet Major Pro offers and exceptionally fast throughput rate, and is even capable of taking multiple branches simultaneously.
Its all-steel construction and epoxy-paint finish mean it’s well-equipped to cope with any knocks or scrapes it might well encounter during its working-life; while its wide-profile pneumatic tyres confer stability during use and make it easy to move to-and-from the storage area.

How Healthy Is My Garden?
How hard do you try to preserve the biological cycle of the "green lung" around your house?
Much too often, the natural cycle of growing, flowering, dying and rotting is interrupted in our garden. Through horticulture and garden tillage, wilted flowers, cut off branches and fallen off leaves frequently land up in a waste tip although these future nutrients are actually meant for the garden. Artificial fertilizers cannot really compensate for this deficiency. Do not allow the green waste of your garden to be lost.

Poor for Small Cuttings
Review by Ernie Wilson / (Posted on 24/03/2015)
Poor for Small CuttingsReview by Ernie Wilson / (Posted on 24/03/2015)Starts well and sturdy, but useless for small cuttings, below about 15 mm. They just clog up the outlet, which is a pain to clear.

Very poor access to engine for basic maintenance
Review by H / (Posted on 29/12/2013)
Very poor access to engine for basic maintenanceReview by H / (Posted on 29/12/2013)We've found the Honda engine very hard to start after the shredder has been standing unused for any length of time. Unfortunately the engine is mounted in such a way that even basic operations such as checking the spark plug or carb are difficult without major dismantling of the shredder. When it's running, the motor has plenty of power, and the shredder can manage wood over an inch thick (the claimed 55mm diameter is a bit of a stretch) but a lot of thinner twiggy stuff goes straight through, and the exit screen clogs up very easily.
