Description of the Ameri-Shred AMS-5000 Strip Cut Industrial Shredder

Ameri-Shred's Series 4 industrial paper shredders are available in 50 to 100 horsepower models. Each successive model provides a larger drive and greater shredding capacity. As the first and smallest model in this series, the Ameri Shred AMS-5000 offers a 50 HP motor and is capable of shredding between 2.4 and 4.5 tons every hour. This unit is available in four different shred widths: 1/2", 5/8"_x009d_, 1"_x009d_, and 1 1/2". The larger the strip size, the greater the throughput. The AMS-5000 like other models in this series features a 30"_x009d_ wide infeed conveyor. This conveyor partnered with the extra wide feed table allows for an incredible amount of material to be fed at a time.

For those looking to destroy a massive amount of material per day, consider the Ameri-Shred AMS-5000. This unit is designed for those demanding the most powerful and efficient document destruction system. Although best suited for handling high volumes of paper products, the AMS-5000 is capable of destroying steel, wood, even tires without harming the cutters. However, it is not recommended feeding these types of items on a frequent basis.

This industrial shredder can be paired with either an in ground or above ground paper metering system. These paper metering systems utilize hinged steel belt conveyors to automatically feed the shredders at a smooth and even rate. This results in continuous high volume destruction with just a single operator and reduces labor costs. The automatic shut down features helps decrease energy consumption and keeps electricity bills low. Undertaking several tons of material, the auto lubrication option helps maintain this shredder, keeping this unit running in optimal condition.

This unit requires plenty of space in order to achieve its maximum potential. The unit itself offers dimensions of 166.5"_x009d_ L x 88"_x009d_ W x 62"_x009d_ H and weighs a monstrous 10,000 lbs. When paired with other components, such as a metering system, output conveyor and baler, this Series 4 offer an efficient solution for large volume document destruction and recycling.
