Taskmaster® Industrial Shredders

Versatile TASKMASTER® shredders and employ a low speed, high torque mechanism for powerful reduction of tough and bulky waste solids. The TASKMASTER comprises a complete line of shredders, grinders and shredding systems for a wide range of applications including the following models:


Compact 8" Twin Shaft Shredders

The TASKMASTER TM8500 series packs a powerful twin-shaft shredding mechanism into a compact housing. These units reduce a variety of solids to fine particles with a positive, self-feeding counter-rotating cutting mechanism.

TM8500 units offer superior twin shaft performance, a variety of available cutter configurations for fine or coarse output, an effective mechanical seal system, low speed, high torque operation and a direct cycloidal gear drive

The TASKMASTER TM8500 series has unique versatility. These units can be installed in either wet, dry, gravity or pressurized environments. They can be configured for channels or chutes. Install them with flange transitions into pipe systems to protect pumps and process equipment. When equipped with a stand and hopper, their powerful shredding capabilities can be employed for reducing wet or dry bulk waste.

Inline: These units protect plant processes and equipment by finely reducing tough waterborne solids such as rags, plastics, woods, mops, tampons, sanitary napkins and more.These units reduce pump ragging and downtime, defend sensitive filter presses and centrifuges from premature wear and puncturing, facilitate further processing or disposal and more. They are designed for channel installations, horizontal or vertical mounting and gravity or pressure systems.

Gravity Systems: The TM8500 is available in a variety of chamber lengths with hopper and stand for dry gravity systems. This unit can handle such items as screenings, packaging, concession waste, manufactured defects, pharmaceutical waste and more.


Powerful, Efficient, Versatile Shredder

The TASKMASTER TITAN (TM14000) matches the shredding capability of units employing twice to three times the power and costing thousands more. This unit can reduce such items as packaging, wood, plastics, paper, wastewater, components, bottles and containers, waste materials, electronic components, bulky items, rejects, foodstuff, cardboard boxes, bottles, cdroms, floppy disks and more.

Unlike other shredders, the TASKMASTER TITAN's unique design employs two counter-rotating intermeshing banks of cutters with one cutting stack having a much smaller diameter than the second. The result is a high capacity, shredder with a substantial inlet opening size that does more with less power.

The TASKMASTER TITAN employs a 5hp motor and cycloidal gear drive, and cutting chambers from 14" x 16" to 14" x 60" (355x1524mm) inlet cutting chamber.

The TASKMASTER TITAN is provided with an S260 Automatic Jam Sensing Controller. This control senses jam conditions and automatically reversses the unit momentarily to clear the obstruction. For more Details on Grinder Controls>Click Here
