    ok, maybe walkbehind was a bit out of it. how about a shreder? i have heard of people building these i believe. nothing big, just something to shread leaves and small branches. i would imagine it would take a 6hp engine? how about the rest of it. would be a great deal of use for its a lot easier to bag chopped up leaves and chopped up twigs then not ot have it chopped.

    Buy a broken one for next to nothing and then fix it. Been there done that.

    there is no money to be made using a shredder. haul it off, pay the dump fee and be done in half the time making twice the money.
