New Terex Ecotec shredder

New Terex Ecotec shredder

Terex Ecotec has launched a new twin-shaft, slow speed shredder called the TDS 825. The machine is suitable for most types of material including household waste, bulky waste, commercial waste, green waste, waste wood, tree stumps and roots.

Customisable shredding programs allow operators to configure the machine to their specific requirements. The hydrostatic drive offers protection against contamination and allows for bi-directional shredding, while independent gear boxes enable each shaft to be run separately, helping to reduce wrappage and improve the shredding of material. Should a blockage occur, the shafts can be controlled via the radio remote control allowing material to be repositioned before attempting to shred again.

The double shaft shredder has 2.5m long shafts made from solid steel, with a fully welded tooth configuration. Located in the centre of the chamber, directly below the shredding shafts is the replaceable breaker bar, which controls the end product size by retaining material in the chamber to aid reduction and protects the transfer belt from damage caused by large pieces of contaminants. A number of breaker bar options are available depending on the level of reduction required.

The Terex TDS 825 is powered by a 770hp Scania V8 DC16 engine, and also features a tipping hopper plus configurable tipping cycle times to suit the application. Hydraulic folding hopper extensions further increase capacity and prevent the infeed material from falling out, especially in bulky applications. The overband magnet providing magnetic separation is both height and angle adjustable hydraulically, and lifts up and away from the product conveyor when not in use.

All conveyors are built to a modular design allowing each one to be removed independently for ease of maintenance.  A separate transfer conveyor with a high specification belt ensures material is effectively removed from below the shredding chamber. The product conveyor raises hydraulically and folds into maintenance mode to allow removal of the transfer conveyor. The TDS 825 is manoeuvred via a robust tracked undercarriage.
