Description of the Ameri-Shred AMS-PT2020 Pierce and Tear Shredder

The Ameri-Shred AMS-PT2020 pierce and tear shredder offers a 40 HP motor, flexible design, and powerful shredding capability. Each model in this series is specifically designed, as the size of the hopper, motor, and cutter profile all depend on what is being shred as well as the required particle size and throughput. This dual shaft, AMS-PT2020 produces shredded pieces that are the width of the cutters times a variable length. Feed your materials into either a top loading or front loading hopper (64"_x009d_ W x 77 1/2"_x009d_ L). The Ameri Shred AMS-PT2020 is a hopper fed shredder, but can be installed with an optional in-feed conveyor. While hand feeding allows for more control, conveyor feeding adds a level of convenience to your shredding jobs. Items descend from the hopper into the 22 1/2"_x009d_ wide and 36"_x009d_ long cutting chamber. The cutting assembly features 36, double hook, saw tooth cutters (15/16"_x009d_ thick) that work together to break down your materials. Shredded pieces fall into a container placed underneath the cutting chamber, such as a cardboard box or plastic bin.

The AMS-PT2020 can handle a variety of materials for an array of applications. Textiles and recycling are two popular uses for these machines. The PT2020 will destroy everything from clothing, shoes, wood, plastics, aluminum, and scrap metal. Overload the machine? The Ameri-Shred AMS-PT2020 detects a jam and automatically switches into reverse mode, where it will continue to run until the jam is repaired. The separate control panel features several functions, putting the operator in control throughout the shredding process. Four grease fittings and two oil level sight gages grant easy maintenance. With no spur gears to wear, oil baths are not required to maintain this unit. While this machine is not necessarily compact, the small footprint makes the Ameri-Shred AMS-PT2020 perfect for use in warehouses, production areas, recycling centers, and more.
