To achieve maximum efficiency, these Ameri-Shred's undergo extensive engineering and field testing to match an operators ability with shredding speed. Those demanding mid volume destruction will be impressed with the 40 HP Ameri-Shred AMS-4000 strip cut industrial shredder. Tackling bulky items quickly and efficiently, the AMS-4000 destroys between 3,250-6,000 lbs. per hour. In total, this strip cut shredder is powerful enough to destroy several tons per day. Unlike its Series 1 and Series 2 predecessors, the Series 3 industrial shredders offer four different shred widths. Your once solid materials are reduced to 5/16"_x009d_, 3/8"_x009d_, 1/2", or 5/8"_x009d_ strips. Throughput depends highly upon the shred size selected. The larger the strip size, the greater the shredding capacity. For the highest volume, the AMS-4000 breaks materials down into 5/8"_x009d_ strips, resulting in between 5,000-6,000 lbs. destroyed each hour. Load materials onto the large 20" W x 71.5" L infeed conveyor, and watch as they enter the cutting chamber. While the output conveyor is optional, this additional unit drastically speeds up operation.

Although an exceptional standalone unit, when matched with a T-3 box dumper, output conveyor & baler, the AMS-4000 maximizes efficiency for high volume document destruction and recycling. A paper metering system is available for this unit, which automatically feeds this shredder at a constant rate for maximum production.
