Yes, KT53, all types clog if too much fresh grren stuff is fed in. An ideal mix for composting is 80 per cent dry/twiggy and 20 percent green, so that's how I mix stuff as it goes into the shredder.
Mine is an Alko impact shredder (that's the type with blades) and about 15 years old. It's only on it's second set of blades. The design is such that stuff goes straight through and it looks very similar to the one Lyn posted. Wouldn't be without one as I have hawthorn and wild rose hedges and shredding is the only sensible way to deal with the prunings.
