Product Description

Eliet are a company with principles. More pertinent to our purposes here, Eliet is a company with a Chopping Principle™. This clever system is used in the design of all of Eliet’s high quality domestic garden shredders, helping boost performance by exploiting the natural weakness of wood and cutting with the grain. As a result, the blades of Eliet shredders cut into garden waste like miniature hatchets and produce uniform chips that are perfect as a mulch layer or on your compost heap. By purchasing an Eliet shredder you are therefore not only getting a superbly effective way of dealing with garden waste, but also investing in the health of your garden.

Eliet’s Primo is a large, intelligently designed shredder ideal for use in gardens abounding with trees and woody shrubs. Equipped with a set of six Eliet Resist™ reversible chopping knives, capable of delivering up to 18,000 cuts per minute with a maximum cutting diameter of 35mm, the Primo will make short work of tough branches and leafy foliage alike. Cuttings are collected in a high capacity 60 litre bag which sits neatly under the machine and allows you to work tidily and comfortably at all times. To ensure safety the shredder cannot be operated without the collection bag in place, so there is no risk to the user when attending to any blockages. Moreover, with its wide opening, spacious hopper and a comfortable feed height the Primo is pleasingly simple and enjoyable to operate.

Power to the cutting system is supplied via a hardworking 135cc GC135 four-stroke petrol engine from world renowned manufacturers Honda, producing an impressive 4.0 horsepower to help ensure consistently excellent results. As with all Honda four-stroke engines the GC135 is reliable and fuel efficient, while the traditional recoil pull starter makes it easy to get the Primo up and running. To help further ensure ease of use the Primo also features large diameter nylon wheels with a natural rubber tread, along with a practical handle on the hopper, so it is easy to get your shredder to where it is needed in the garden. To facilitate storage and transportation, meanwhile, the Primo has also been designed to fold down to almost half its full size, so it won’t take up too much space when not in use.

Made from robust steel and precision welded to ensure a longer service life, Eliet’s Primo is thus a truly excellent piece of equipment suitable for even the most dedicated home gardeners. As an added bonus it is also supplied as standard with gloves, safety glasses and ear defenders, thereby ensuring that getting rid of garden waste is both safe and fun.

About Eliet
A revival in the garden machinery trade during the 1970s inspired Emiel Lietaer, a 9th generation blacksmith, to use his metal working skills to begin production of a range of products that would ultimately revolutionise the gardening market. It was at the International Agricultural Week at the Heysel, in Brussels, 1986, that the quality of these new products was recognised and here that the Belgian brand now known as Eliet was finally born. Demand grew, investments were made and the company expanded into a world leader, producing some of the finest garden waste disposal and turf care products available.

Constantly being on the lookout for ways to improve their products keeps the Eliet name at the forefront of design, creating unique solutions to solve longstanding problems. Take for example the patented Eliet Chopping PrincipleTM, used in their petrol and electric garden shredders. It not only produces the best quality wood chippings for composting and mulching, it also reduces engine wear and fuel consumption, thus reducing outlay for both domestic and commercial operators. The Eliet design team are already working on the next generation of garden machinery products, destined to make your gardening and horticultural tasks easier and more efficient, saving you time and money and also lessening our impact on the environment.
