Shred-Tech MDS-1S-26 Shred Truck

Whether you’re in need of a truck to start your very own paper shredding business or looking to scale or grow your existing business, the MDS-1S-26 Shred Truck from Shred-Tech® is a top-quality solution. Thanks to its 26,000 lb. GVW chassis and dual-shaft shredder, this shred truck is one of our most affordable models available and doesn’t require a CDL, making it a perfect option for the start-up or entrepreneur looking to immediately start their business with a lower initial investment and a high ROI. This shred truck is equipped to shred paper and documents and features a throughput of up to 5,500 lbs./hour, which is the base level throughput of our ST-15H shredder on this truck. This throughput offers enough efficiency to service a variety of locales in a timely manner. A respectable 9,000 lb. payload allows this shred truck to remain small enough to easily maneuver through congested city streets, meaning you have more customer options in metropolitan areas. These features are not only applicable to new shred truck owners and shredding business start-ups, but also to companies looking to expand their business into the city, or large shredding and recycling enterprises who could use a boost in efficiency with a reliable shred truck from the largest shredding equipment manufacturer in North America. Mid-tier and even large shred companies looking to scale or diversify can easily utilize the MDS-1S-26 Shred Truck by getting drivers up-and-running in no time without the need for a CDL, and the simple but robust engineering of the trucks ensures complete shredding solutions to customers with long performance and serviceability. A full two-year limited warranty ensures your investment is protected in case of any mishaps.

With Shred-Tech® shred trucks, you get the highest return on your investment.

ST-15H Shredder

The MDS-1S-26 Shred Truck gets its amazing performance from the proven ST-15H shredder. The cast aluminum construction of this shredder offers exceptional strength without the weight of steel, allowing for a more maneuverable and easy-to-drive truck. The throughput on this ST-15H shredder goes up to 5,500 lbs./hour, allowing for a generous amount of paper material to be shredded throughout a workday. Featuring sharp and sturdy hub knives and high-strength alloy shafts, this shredder remains tough and reliable even after several years of use. Two all-new patent-pending innovations have also been added to this shredder, which include cast-in cleaning fingers and a bridgeless vibrating feed hopper for optimal shredding efficiency you can depend on.

Auger Compactor & Auto Unloading

Shred-Tech®’s engineering experts designed this shred truck to outperform trucks of similar payloads in efficiency and operational reliability to maximize your profits and help you build a trusted business. The angled compactor design and durable moving floor unloading system of the MDS-1S-26 Shred Truck do just that by providing a maximum payload of up to 9,000 lbs. and rapid discharge of shredded paper within only a few minutes. This means more time on-route shredding paper, generating revenue, and beating out your competition!

Bin Tunnel

The MDS-1S-26 Shred Truck 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 to optimize efficiency and ease of use. It ensures confidential information is protected from the elements as it is kept secure and enclosed at all times. This is a great selling point for customers who may be concerned about confidentiality and secure shredding. There’s an additional layer of safety and security as the bin won’t fall off the lift and hit the operator.


The state-of-the-art Plus+1® micro-control system with advanced intelligence is powerful enough to control and monitor the entire shredding system while also offering an abundance of useful features, including a job timer, an automatic bin counter, advanced diagnostics, and Predictive Idle to name a few. The Plus+1® system offers a level of control and range of features not possible with older analog control panels, helping you to easily monitor and operate the MDS-1S-26 with precision and confidence. A camera above the shredder and another in the payload compartment allow for full monitoring, while the handy parallel ignition feature allows you to remotely, easily, and safely start the truck from the control panel. The key may be placed in the auxiliary position from outside the cab or left in the cab. By carefully considering every benefit you may need, Shred-Tech® ensures you have easy-to-use and highly functional equipment to make the job a breeze and help you take your business to the next level.

Optional Accessories for the MDS-1S-26

Shred-Tech® doesn’t stop there; you have your choice of several optional accessories for an MDS-1S-26 Shred Truck that’s customized to meet your specific applications!

Call one of our dedicated shred truck experts today for further information on additional options and how Shred-Tech® can create a tailored business solution for you!

Backup Camera with Stainless-Steel Guard

Our most popular optional accessory is the backup camera with stainless-steel guard. This camera increases visibility and greatly improves safety and security when maneuvering the vehicle. A super-tough stainless-steel guard surrounds the camera to protect it from both the elements and impact for maximum durability and dependability.

Data Destruction

Shred-Tech®’s ST-5 Mobile Data Destruction Shredder is specifically designed to destroy your data drives so that data can never be retrieved or reconstructed. Only complete, physical destruction will ensure that your digital data is permanently destroyed. Provide an additional revenue stream to your business by adding the ST-5 Mobile to any new Shred-Tech® MDS-1S-26 Shred Truck, or by retrofitting an existing MDS-1S-26. The ST-5 Mobile can even be run simultaneously with the paper shredder!

The ST-5 Mobile Data Destruction Shredder offers a throughput of up to 750 hard drives per hour, or up to 1,000 solid state drives per hour for fast and easy data destruction. Thanks to a simple and convenient hideaway access panel and robust Plus+1® Screen, starting and operating the ST-5 Mobile is a breeze.

Note: Adding an ST-5 Mobile Data Destruction Shredder will reduce payload.

Front Cart Storage

For added convenience, you can add a separate storage compartment for 64- & 96-gallon carts or empty file boxes. This front cart storage option allows for passenger side access and can help save you time and improve convenience while out on the job.
