Keeping a large garden in top condition is a year round prospect as there is almost always something which needs to be cut, thinned, pruned, chopped or otherwise removed with extreme prejudice. One consequence of this is that there is also usually some kind of garden waste kicking about, so it is reassuring to know that your garden shredder is capable of dealing with whatever comes its way. The toughest and most powerful shredder in Eliet’s domestic range, the Major 4S is a semi-professional machine designed for year round shredding of large quantities of mixed garden waste. Thus, whether it is spring, summer, autumn or winter, the Major 4S is the perfect shredder for dealing with heavy workloads in the garden.
Easily capable of shredding everything from kitchen waste to bushy foliage and from thick tree branches to bulky green waste, the Major 4S is powered by a superb 270cc Honda GX270 four-stroke petrol engine and thus an exceptionally hardworking beast. The GX270 is one of the best engines in the business, featuring an overhead valve design for increased efficiency and optimal power transfer and designed specifically for quiet, smooth running and reliable performance. This engine will also offer a long service life, with a cast iron cylinder sleeve and a dual element air cleaner included for magnificent durability and high quality materials used throughout its construction.
The Major 4S also benefits significantly from Eliet’s commitment to innovative design. The Eliet Chopping Principle™, for example, means that Eliet shredders use blades which cut wood with the grain to produce small chips which compost quickly and make an ideal mulch layer in your garden. The Turbo Discharge™ system, meanwhile, creates a vacuum effect which sucks green waste into the shredder and then blows the shredded material out through a swivelling chute which features 270° of articulation to ensure a tidier finish. This system boosts performance and helps prevent clogging when working with wet vegetation, and along with the Chopping Principle™ means that the Major 4S is incredibly versatile and superbly effective when working with all kinds of garden waste.
With a comfortable feed height, a spacious hopper and a wide intake opening the Major 4S is also pleasingly simple to use, handling luxuriant foliage with ease, while an array of twenty razor-sharp, hardened steel blades provide enough cutting power to save a lot of time and effort compared to most domestic shredders. Capable of achieving up to 50,000 cuts per minute and boasting a maximum cutting diameter of 55mm, even tough branches can be cut with ease. For added convenience the blades are also reversible and easy to access for sharpening, so you can be sure of easy maintenance and no loss of performance over time.
Built with a robust steel frame for incredible durability and a longer service life, the Major 4S also features a belt-driven blade shaft to protect the crankshaft from damage should any blockages occur. Large, smooth running wheels, moreover, mean that it is straightforward to get this impressive machine to where it is most needed, while the thick pneumatic tyres also help to absorb engine vibration during use. Supplied as standard with a pair of gloves, safety glasses and ear defenders to help ensure safe operation, Eliet’s Major 4S is pretty much the ultimate in domestic shredding power and ideal for even the most dedicated home gardener.
