Safer shredding and less racket, too

SCH Supplies has introduced its chassis-mounted HS550 shredder which, it is claimed, gives extra performance and be safer and quieter to operate than the HS450 model it replaces.

The HS550 comes with a hydraulic feed roller, while a valve system is designed to slow down or stop the feed of material and prevent blockages.

Further features include an 180deg discharge chute with an adjustable deflector (01473-328272).
