Description of the Ameri-Shred AMS-PT3030 Pierce and Tear Shredder

The Ameri-Shred line of Pierce and Tear shredders are rugged and flexible. A 60 HP drive and right angle helical bevel gear motor powers this product destruction shredder. The AMS-PT3030 is capable of destroying wood and pallets, plastics, fabrics, scrap metal, aluminum, and so much more. This is not your average shredder. The Ameri-Shred AMS Pierce and Tear series does just that: it literally pierces and tears the toughest materials to shreds. This unit is designed specifically based upon your desired application. The size of the hopper, motor and cutters all depend on the product, the particle size and the required throughput. Available with either a top feed or front feed hopper, the Ameri Shred AMS-PT3030 can come installed with an optional in-feed conveyor. The 22-1/2"_x009d_ W x 36"_x009d_ L cutting chamber accommodates a significant amount of materials at a time. Saw tooth, hooked cutters (36 in total) work to break down these items. Shredded waste falls from the cutting chamber into any container placed underneath the cutting chamber.

When feeding high volumes of material, jams are inevitable. If a jam occurs, the Ameri Shred AMS-PT3030 automatically switches into reverse mode, running in reverse until the jam is remedied. A separate control panel features several functions and buttons that give the user control during the shredding process. With no spur gears to wear, no oil bath is required to maintain this shredder. Four grease fittings and two oil level sight gages also allow for easy maintenance. Rugged all steel construction means that this shredder won't break down easily. The innovative design and small footprint helps save space in your warehouse or production area.
