New Heavy Duty Auto Scrap Shredder for Small to Medium Yards To Be Unveiled at ISRI 2010

15 February 2010

 30% More Hammer Impact than Competitive Models, 12% Wider

Trussville, AL…..US Shredder will unveil its latest of shredders at ISRI 2010 in San Diego.  The new shredder is the latest in a line of models from US Shredder that are designed for the most rugged scrap applications anywhere.

The shredder was designed to specifically compete with 6085 models in regards to price and production, but that is where the comparison ends.   The rotor that provides up to 30% more hammer impact and 12% wider provides advantages in: thickness of scrap that can be shred, efficiency of motor, and longevity of the shredder itself.   Many shredder experts agree that the 6085 is relatively a non ferrous  or light ferrous shredder.  According to company President Bill Tigner, “The basic size of the 6085 is primarily the problem.  The strength and durability of our rotor will eliminate many of the maintenance and service issues associated with smaller, lighter shredders. Our new shredder will give operators advantages they have not had to date.  The gap between the 6085 and 80104 models exist no longer.”

US Shredder Engineers worked closely with its Fabrication team to build a bigger, heavier shredder with a design that allows the shredder to be built at the cost of the lighter competitive models.

State of the art controls, hydraulics, and long lasting castings are all provided with the new shredder.  The shredder will be typically offered with a DC 2300 HP drive system but can be provided with larger systems.  An efficient, cost effective downstream is also available.

Individual presentations and introductions can be made by contacting the company prior to ISRI. 

The US Shredder and Castings Group offers scrap shredders, control systems, downstream systems, non ferrous recovery, air systems, scrap shears, balers, and loggers; as well as shredder castings, service and consulting to the worldwide scrap industry.  For more information,please contact Bill Tigner at 205-999-7670.
