Hi Gerry,We have recently bought the Flymo Pac a Shredder 2500. What a great piece of kit! My question lies with Phormium leaves. Does anyone know whether it is able to shred them? In the past our lawnmower has had to make a trip or two to the mower hospital when it got in contact with a formium leaf, do to its stringy make up. We are playing it safe at the moment and not putting them through it but it would be great if we couldLooking forward to hearing from you.Japonica

There is no lawnmower that can handle phormium leaves. Phormium has the common name of New Zealand flax because it was once grown for the very tough fibres in the leaves. This is strong enough to stop even powerful mowers as it wraps around the blade spindle.
