SR500 Single Shaft Shredder

The SR500 single rotor shredder/grinder reduces bulky material in a single pass while producing predictable, consistently sized particles.

The Uni-Shear® SR500 is a small footprint, low parts cost, one shaft shredder that's ideal for size reduction of materials that contain minimal metal, such as paper, plastic, foil, foam and more. It can work as a stand-alone machine or as a secondary shredder to further reduce material output. The SR500 uses an adjustable speed, pressure-sensing ram and individually replaceable, reversible cutters to effectively grind material to small consistent particles in a single pass.
