Description of the Ameri-Shred AMS-6000 Strip Cut Industrial Shredder

Document shredding is made easy thanks to the Ameri-Shred Series 4 Strip Cut Industrial Shredders. With 60 HP drive, the AMS-6000 tears through 2.8-4.8 tons each hour. This model is available in four different shred widths: 1/2", 5/8" , 1" , and 1 1/2". Throughput depends upon the shred size chosen. The larger the strip size, the higher volume accepted. Shredding material into 1/2" strips allows for a shredding capacity of 2.8-3.2 tons per hour. 5/8" strips increases throughput to 3.5-4 tons. 1" pieces results in 4.2-4.8 tons destroyed each hour. Finally, for the highest volume this unit can handle, shredding material into 1 ½" strips allows for a throughput of 4.5-5 tons every hour.

With the 30" infeed conveyor paired with the extra wide feed table, the Ameri Shred AMS-6000 accepts an array of materials, including bulk paper, plastics, steel, wood, and tires. Although frequently feeding these heavy duty materials is not recommended, the AMS-6000 will handle these items without harming the cutters. Maintaining the cutters is easy thanks to the available automatic oiling system. This system sends oil straight to the cutters, keeping them constantly lubricated for optimal performance. Although this industrial shredder is efficient as a standalone unit, when paired with other components, such as a metering system, cart tipper, output conveyor and baler, productivity is greatly increased. The paper metering system utilizes hinged steel belt conveyors, which automatically feeds the shredder at an even rate. This provides continuous high volume destruction with just a single operator, significantly cutting labor costs. After your project is complete, the Ameri-Shred AMS-6000 will automatically shutdown, reducing energy consumption and extending the life of the unit.

Weighing in at a massive 10,000 lbs. and with dimensions of 166.5" L x 88" W x 62" H (203.5" L with feed table), the Ameri-Shred AMS-6000 needs an ample amount of space in your warehouse or production area. This Series 4 industrial shredder offers an efficient solution for large volume document destruction and recycling.
