Standard Features for the STQ-100

The STQ-100 Industrial Shredder gets its excellent reputation from the combined performance capabilities of its standard features and components. This shredder comes complete with a range of high-quality components that work seamlessly together to provide an exceptional shredding experience, including a super-tough construction with easy-maintenance parts, sharp cutting knives, sturdy hex shafts, and a convenient rollout screen design. These features combined produce a heavy-duty industrial shredder with the power, efficiency, and long-lasting performance required to get ahead of the competition and solidify success and profitability for years. No other extra features or components are necessary to make the STQ-100 a complete and highly efficient shredding and recycling solution for your business, so you can start generating revenue as soon as it’s in your facility.



Powerful, hassle-free operation of the STQ-100 Industrial Shredder is fully achieved thanks to its heavy-duty construction, which is based on Shred-Tech®’s own standard torsion tube body design. Furthermore, low noise and vibration as well as significantly reduced wear and maintenance costs are all possible with the STQ-100 via a proprietary triple seal cutting chamber, abrasion-resistant wear components, and super-high knife tip cutting force.

A simplified modular construction on the STQ-100 increases parts commonality and decreases the number of major components to allow for extremely convenient maintenance and repair with reduced spare parts requirements. Superior bearing and seal protection are permitted via sturdy bulkhead walls and labyrinth barriers at either cutting chamber end, while no gearbox disassembly is required to replace the bearing and seal, helping you save even more time and money on maintenance and repairs. A lightweight chamber plate design further allows for the cutting chamber to be quickly and easily disassembled.



The STQ-100 Industrial Shredder’s main power comes from its quad-motor shredder, while its ability to carve smoothly and consistently through a wide range of materials is all thanks to its set of heavy-duty and super-sharp shredding knives. Thanks to the perfect sharpness of every knife, the shredder can operate at high capacity to keep up with demand. The shredder achieves high throughput and efficiency throughout the entire shredding process with a variety of materials and even produces the smallest possible scrap particle size with uniformity and consistency. Depending on the type of STQ-100 model purchased, knife thicknesses are 7/8”, 1 3/16”, and 1 1/2”, and the number of knives for each size ranges from sets of 96, 64, and 48; 120, 80, and 60; or 144, 96, and 72.

Hex shafts

Hex Shafts

The STQ line of shredders wouldn’t be as powerful as it is without super-tough and reliable hex shafts and drive systems. Maintenance-friendly and featuring fast and simple component changes, these four hex shafts stand up to regular use and ensure you have shredding power for years to come. Additionally, Shred-Tech® provides you with the highest knife-tip cutting force of any comparable industrial shredder on the market with the high-quality hex shaft design of the STQ-100 for maximum power.



The STQ-100 Industrial Shredder has been specially designed for optimized shredding efficiency, strength, low operating costs, and high ROI that can help push your business to new heights, and that care for engineering and design applies even to the rollout screens. Easily removed from the shredder, the rollout screens on this industrial shredder can be quickly cleaned and reinstalled. Different sized screens can also be swapped in and out with both speed and ease.

Stand and hopper

Custom Stands and Hoppers

If you’re looking to raise your STQ-100 off the ground, then adding a custom stand to match your facility can help. Adding a stand can allow enough clearance for shredded material to fall onto downstream equipment like a conveyor, or drop into a container, thus allowing you to keep material flowing smoothly and keep your facility free of debris. For smoother and more efficient in-feeding during the loading process, custom hoppers can be added to the STQ-100. Easily installed, these hoppers feed material smoothly into the shredder and can even be paired with a conveyor or other peripheral equipment of your choosing. Choosing the right hopper for your industrial shredder can help the shredding process remain seamless and without blockages or buildup during in-feeding.

In-feed and out-feed conveyor

In-Feed and Out-Feed Conveyors

Choose to add an in-feed conveyor, out-feed conveyor, or both to your STQ-100 Industrial Shredder to optimize loading and unloading efficiency and convenience. Operators at your facility can quickly shred large quantities of material thanks to the generous speed of the conveyors as well as the power of the shredder itself. Automating both in-feeding and out-feeding can create the highest possible efficiency for the entire shredding process and improve both workflow and cashflow for your business.
