Before we begin reviewing the best leaf mulchers (leaf shredders) in 2018, I would like to mention that choosing the best from the rest wasn’t as easy as “strolling along the beach.” Actually, it was much harder than I had anticipated. This is despite having owned several types and brands over the years.
For instance, I came across one that was pretty powerful and well built. However, it was a little bit noisy because of the gas-powered motor. Another was not only well-powered but also very lightweight and portable. However, it was the corded type meaning its use was limited by the cord’s length.
Other things that I had to pay attention to were the weight, size, fuel-type, reliability, maintenance ease, and the cost. Listed below are the top 9 best leaves mulchers (leaf shredders) on the market that I believe will deliver good service and will last for a long time.

List of Top 9 Best leaf Mulchers in 2018
#9. Snoe Joe SDJ616 Shredder, 13-Amp
By: Snoe Joe
When I first saw the SDJ616 shredder, I couldn’t believe that such a small unit could handle such large volumes of yard waste. In fact, I had to observe it several times for I to conclude that it was actually one of the best leaf mulchers in the market. It boasts of a powerful but silent motor that shreds/mulches leave within minutes. The high speed together with the good reduction will shrink the debris to a small proportion for easy storage and disposal.
#8. Eco-Shredder ES1600 Mulcher, Chipper, Shredder, 14-Amp
I knew my neighbor owned a pretty nice wood chipper. In fact, I would say that its one of the best. Nevertheless, it’s only recently that I also learned that it also shreds and mulches leaves. It was just as powerful and reliable as it was when chipping wood and could go on-and-on without overheating or the performance dwindling. I love the simple design that makes introducing leaves or wood easy as well as the conveniently located waste bag.
#7. Black & Decker BV6000 High-Performance Blower/Vac/Mulcher
By: Black & Decker
I have used many Black & Decker accessories and appliances over the years. However, the BV6000 leaf mulcher is one of their best. It comes with a strong motor that can shred leaves and twigs within a short time and compresses them to a tiny package. The unit, although powerful, is very silent and can be used even in a small area without causing a nuisance. Other than a leaves mulcher, it also doubles as a mulcher, blower, and vacuum.
#6. BLACK+DECKER BV5600 Mulcher, Shredder, Blower, Vacuum
By: Black & Decker
We bought this mulcher for a work colleague several months ago. Till now, it still performs like a champ. It reduces 16 bags of yard waste to only 1 bag; it blows the leaves and twigs from the yard very effectively, and also has excellent vacuuming potential. Like other top-end products, it is very silent, doesn’t produce any smoke or fumes, and is very energy-efficient. According to my work colleague, the BV5600 is undoubtedly one of the best leaf mulchers in the market.
#5. Flowtron LE-900 Ultimate Electric Leaf Mulcher Shredder
Forget the mound or piles of leaves, twigs, or grass clipping on your yard. With the Flowtron mulcher and shredder, you will be able to compress the volumes into a way smaller size. Other than making the environment cleaner, it also saves on the trash /disposal bags. The high-speed unit is suitable for residential and commercial use and comes in a simple and portable design. It has a sturdy and robust motor that delivers excellent power and doesn’t produce lots of noise.
#4. WORX WG430 Electric Leaf Mulcher, 13-Amp
I had used the WG430 electric mulcher from Worx for a long time, and it hadn’t had any issues. It performs well in spite of its fairly small size. It was one of the most silent and portable and was pretty easy to operate. I also loved how quiet the electric motor is, and the good mulching ratio that would shrink 11 bags to only 1 bag and this took only a few minutes. It was unfortunate that I accidentally knocked it while reversing in the garage.
#3. Earthquake 9060300 Shredder Chipper – 205cc Briggs Engine,
The Earthquake 9060300 cheer shredder holds the 3rd position on these 9 best leaf mulchers for some reasons. One, it’s very simple in design and easy to operate. Two, it is quite powerful but also very silent. Three, it is energy-efficient and produces minimal noise. Four, moving it is easy and straightforward courtesy of the excellent engineering and design. Other things I love about it include powerful motor, heavy-duty clipping hammers, and easy maintenance.
#2. Worx Trivia Electric Blower & Mulcher
This is one of the electric leaves mulchers that is currently considering as a replacement for my earlier one. I love the simple and practical design it comes in, it is very sturdily-built to endure regular or continuous use and is also very versatile. It mulches and shreds leaves, twigs, and other yard waste. The unit also gets praises for the powerful energy-efficient motor, easy maintenance, and user-friendly design.
#1. Patriot Products CSV-3100B Briggs & Stratton Engine, 10 Hp
This is currently one of the greatest leaf mulchers am profoundly thinking about. I love the powerful engine, the portable design, and the sturdy construction. It is fuel-efficient, produces minimal noise, and low maintenance. Other than mulching and shredding leaves, the CSV-3100B shredder also does an excellent job of chopping wood.
Featured above are the top 9 best leaf mulchers (leaf shredders) that you will find in the market. To rank them, I based the comparison on the most crucial features. They had to be powerful, energy-efficient, eco-friendly, user-friendly, easy to maintain, reliable, durable and versatile. With any of these accessories, you’ll be able to get rid of the leaves on your yard, lawn, and hedge much faster without using lots of effort of time.
Furthermore, they will be compressed in smaller proportions for easy storage and dumping. And if you have a garden or small farm, you can use the shredded leaves as mulching.
