These machines may be new to the U.K., but they have been successfully sold into New Zealand and Australia for many years. According to the new UK distributor, the machines can be built with electric or hydraulic motors and can be supplied static, or mobile in a truck for on site shredding.
There are two versions available, the Evashred EV60 and EV110. The Evashred EV60 shreds passenger car tyres into hundreds of pieces in 10-15 seconds. The capacity is up to 3,000 kilos per hour. The Evashred EV110 features larger cutters and motor and is designed to process truck tyres. The Evashred EV110 can process up to 6,000 kilos per hour.
