We had the exact same problem. We are using couplings to connect the axles from the gearbox to the shredder box, so I don’t think the shredder box was actually grounded. We solved it by running a wire from a bolt on the shredder box directly to the motor’s ground (grounding the shredder box).

Not only did it kill the static charge, but it also sped up the shredding process by removing the buildup on top of the blades and gave us larger sized mulch instead of a fine “snow”.

I hope this helps!
