McCloskey International is expanding its recycling product range with the introduction of the company’s first shredder.

The new McCloskey VTS95 mobile shredder is the first product to makes its debut for the new Recycling Division.

The VTS95 tracked machine is capable of effectively shredding virtually any type of material from solid waste, industrial and commercial waste to bulk waste. The VTS95 is designed to meet the requirements for plants where the incoming materials will vary greatly in terms of size, composition and difficulty to shred.

“We have a busy year of new product development ahead of us to compile a range of equipment in order to meet our customer’s needs. This first addition follows a stringent and strenuous development cycle, which has seen the shredder tested and prove itself in diverse product applications across the globe,” said Fergal Mallon, McCloskey recycling product line manager.

“We have teamed up with Metso Waste in Denmark, who are experts in static shredding applications, and have a range of tried and tested cutting table solutions, and we intend on using these cutting tables in our new equipment. They are experts in static recycling equipment, and we are experts in mobile equipment, and so we see this as an exciting partnership for both companies. It further enhances the McCloskey product portfolio and will help us to grow in existing markets and enter new ones.”

The interaction between the rotating knives on the dual shafts runs asynchronously in both directions, ensuring the input material constantly moves to prevent bridging while maximizing shredding efficiency.

Using precision engineering to produce the machine, the VTS95 features:

  • Aggressive 8 knife Samurai, heavy duty cutting table.
  • Multiple shredding programs.
  • Shredding in both directions with full torque.
  • Cat C15 540 hp Tier 4 Final engine.
  • Fuel efficient hydraulics system.
  • Anti-jam system.
  • Double hydrostatic drive transmission.
  • Access ladder mounted at the front of the cutting table.

An additional feature includes bi-directional shredding to deliver maximum yield.

The machine is also designed with its operator in mind. In addition to performance, significant benefits include set up time, ease of operation and minimal maintenance.
