General Description

The X shredders are single shaft shredders with a powerful two-speed swing ram design eliminating the risk of blocking and wearing out of internal guide rails. The machine is very versatile and can be used for shredding of all kinds of input materials and is well suited for different industries. The 750 mm diameter rotors ranging from 1500 to 3000 mm width are driven by two oversized gearboxes. The low speed of 45 rpm guarantees a high torque and smooth operation. The hydraulic power pack is well integrated into the machine housing to save space and protect it from damage, but still easy to access or remove for maintenance. The proven E rotor, knife holder and knife designs are taken to new dimensions to conquer the most demanding applications and challenges. The machines can be tailored to various applications advanced controls and hydraulics, hard facing and other wear options.


The X shredders have been designed for the most demanding and high throughput applications in recycling industries. The input materials can be all kinds of wood, paper, cardboard, e-waste, post-consumer waste, rubber, et cetera in various shapes and sizes. Typical input materials are: fridges, purges, tires, pallets, bales, drums, barrels and so on. The output material size is defined by the installed screen and except in RDF (refuse derived fuels) applications the output material has to be processed further to achieve the desired final size. For the recycling of complete truck and tractor tires the T Series is configured with special wear protection and knives.

Key Features



The X shredders use larger concave ground square knives, producing high quality output. The cutters can be turned after a side is worn out.



All Virtus Equipment shredders are equipped with our E-style flat rotor. The knives are fixed in special knife holders fitted in machined pockets. Optional weld on hard facing is available for abrasive applications.


High Powered Hydraulics

The X shredders feature a high-powered, twin-speed hydraulic system. This system ensures maximum pressure when feeding material into the rotor and high speeds on the backstroke.
