We tested the shredders on freshly-cut branches (up to 2cm diameter), dry or semi-dry branches (2-4cm diameter) and leafy green cuttings. We also assessed ease of feeding, tendency to block, access to the blade or roller, and manoeuvrability.

I enjoy using my Father-in-law's Ozito, compared to the top-ranked Supaswift, which we own. The Ozito's input is low down (so I don't have to reach so high), it doesn't vibrate and grab like the Supaswift, and it's much quieter. I agree with Meg D's advice to feed a branch along with leaves, and just reversing when it jams. I recommend this style of shredder for a smaller person who wants a more peaceful shredding experience - it's quite meditative!
Extremely slow compared to the Supaswift, but for me slow = no surprises.
Yes, I recommend this product.
