Standard Features for the ST-8
Engineered to provide you with an ideal shredding solution that you can trust, the ST-8 Industrial Shredder is equipped with a number of high-quality standard features that are designed to improve the overall performance of the industrial shredder. These components work together with the rest of the shredding system to keep the workflow moving and the revenue flowing. Featuring high-quality knives, extra heavy-duty hex shafts, and a user-friendly control panel, the shredder machine is more than ready to provide you with highly efficient and reliable shredding capabilities.
Designed for maximum cutting capabilities, the ST-8 Industrial Shredder is equipped with several high-strength, heavy-duty knives. These knives are designed to eat their way through thick hard drives until only tiny scraps that can never be reassembled remain, ensuring the complete protection of your client’s sensitive information. The powerful knives are engineered to suit the application for maximum throughput and optimum shred size.
Built with an emphasis on serviceability and functionality, the ST-8 Industrial Shredder features a uniquely designed machined hex shaft that maximizes knife placement options. This allows you to easily configure the shredder machine to suit your application. The hex shaft also offers easier knife removal and machine maintenance. It is several times larger than a keyed shaft, and its hex shaft drive system provides you with the highest knife-tip cutting force of any comparable shredder on the market.
Designed and developed by certified Shred-Tech® technicians, the control panel allows you to stay in complete control throughout the shredding process. The control system is easy to use and provides you with everything needed to handle the machine. This control panel features several advantages, namely a programmable logic controller for different shredder functions, including knife reversal on overload. In addition, it also features fused lockable disconnect, keyed power switch, an hour meter, and illuminated function buttons.
Optional Accessories for the ST-8
The overall performance of the ST-8 Industrial Shredder can be easily enhanced with the inclusion of optional accessories. Each component is engineered by our experts to provide unrelenting and reliable support to the rest of the shredding system. These accessories include, but are not limited to, a solid hopper, convenient in-feed and out-feed conveyors, and a supportive stand.

We recommend that you install our durable hopper onto the ST-8 Industrial Shredder to smooth out workflow. This heavy-duty hopper is built with the strength needed to support the rest of the industrial shredder throughout the day-to-day work by funneling larger materials into the shredder and helping to prevent blockages or buildup. It is designed to withstand the constant challenges of the industry while helping to keep the work flowing efficiently. It can be modified to suit the application or installation.
In-Feed & Out-Feed Conveyor
The ST-8 Industrial Shredder can be equipped with either an in-feed conveyor, an out-feed conveyor, or both to improve the workflow and overall efficiency of operating the ST-8. While the in-feed conveyor easily moves the products right into the shredder, keeping your employees away from the sharp blades, the out-feed conveyor keeps the shredded remains moving away from the shredder to prevent buildup or clogging. The shredded material can then be dumped automatically into a bin or other container for collection and further processing. This can effectively improve the efficiency of the job.
For superior lifted support you can trust that grants improved clearance in your facility space, we recommend that you equip the ST-8 Industrial Shredder with a high-quality stand. This stand is built with the strength to hold up the shredder machine off the ground. With a stand equipped, the shredded material may drop via gravity into a container or downstream equipment like a conveyor for quick and easy unloading.
