Over size shredder

available in canada and us https://www.ebay.ca/itm/222838345518?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

Have you hooked this up to a motor? Did it work? How big of a motor did you need?

We have been finding that since the shredder blades are fairly wide and essentially dull, that there is a lot of resisting force against the motor when shredding thicker materials or more plastic at a time. We are considering sharpening the blades or re-designing the shredder box to be more efficient.

Oddly enough, we found that this heavy duty paper shredder that cost us $300 seems to be more efficient at shredding cups, utensils and other thin objects.

Here’s a video of it: https://www.instagram.com/p/BfXQuIpB4Zs/?taken-by=preciousplasticla

thank you for the reference, it’s nice to see people fired up recycling plastic. i watched the video you showed. paper shredder work well shredding the cup, cup is PP which is soft plastic, even more it’s thin. i think the machine works, but only in home scale production, not enough for real recycling workspace production.
mixer, paper shredder, blender not work (jeremy fielding)
even with dave design shredder machine, a 1/2 HP motor doesn’t enough to shredd common PET bottle (xxxolivierxxx)
feel free to criticize 🙂
