The MDS-3’s brilliant design achieves amazing throughput and payload at an equally amazing price.
The MDS-3 is all about performance, with class leading single axle payload of up to 14,000 lbs and throughput up to 7,000 lbs/hr, making it the #1 selling shredding truck in the world. The MDS- 3 is designed to be cost efficient, reliable and competitively priced.
*Product specifications subject to change without notice.
- The MDS-Line gets its amazing performance from the proven ST-15H and ST-35H shredders. The cast aluminum shredders have exceptional strength without the weight of steel. Throughput on the ST-15H can range from 4,500 lbs/hr to 7,000 lbs/hr, and up to 12,000 lbs/hr on the ST-35H. The shredders feature hub knives, high strength alloy shafts as well as two all-new patent pending innovations: cast-in cleaning fingers and a bridgeless vibrating feed hopper.
- BIN TUNNEL AND CONTROLS
- The MDS-Line is equipped with Shred-Tech’s proprietary and patented Gripper Tipper®. This bin tunnel loading system allows for quick and easy loading of all industry standard containers. It ensures confidential information is protected from the elements, as it is kept secure and enclosed at all times.
- The state of the art Plus+1® micro-control system with advanced intelligence is powerful enough to not only control and monitor the system but it also allows for a job timer, an automatic bin counter, advanced diagnostics and Predictive Idle to name a few of the features. The Plus+1® system offers a level of control, and range of features that are not possible with older analog control panels.
- AUGER COMPACTOR AND AUTO UNLOADING
- Equipped with Shred-Tech’s angled compactor design and durable moving floor unloading system, these features ensure maximum payload of up to 14,000 lbs and rapid discharge of shredded material within a few minutes. This means more time on-route shredding paper and generating revenue.
- ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP
- Our MDS Fleet meets the EPA’s strict new low emissions standards and operates on ULSD (ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel) or B5 Biodiesel fuel. All MDS trucks are equipped with Shred-Tech’s Predictive Idle with auto shutdown and remote panel start/stop. Predictive Idle senses low shredder loads and shuts off the high engine idle when the shredder is unattended and the hopper is empty. Moments later the PTO’s are turned off along with the engine, reducing fuel consumption and lowering engine hours.
