This tire shredder is engineered specifically to cut whole tires, even steel belted radials, in one step. According to the manufacturer, in 1 hr. it can shred as many as 1000 car tires or 200 truck tires, up to 12 tons of tires per hr.
The 2-in. x 2-in. nominal chips that result are a suitable size for tire-derived fuel, replacement of aggregate and other applications. With further reduction, tires can be recycled for rubber asphalt and rubber-plastic compounds. When mounted on the manufacturer's tri-axle lowboy trailer, the shredder is completely mobile, so it can be moved from site to site. It can also be ordered as a stationary unit.
