A patented split-apart design that grants users easy access to the cutting chamber for stand-up cleaning and maintenance has been extended to the line of Eagle shredders from Republic Machine, Louisville, Ky. Using a cordless drill, processors can engage a hydraulic pump, which opens up the shredder’s cutting chamber, allowing workers to step inside for cleaning and maintenance.         

At NPE2015, Republic showcased an Eagle unit featuring the Hawk’s Bill square cutter. Republic has patented its Zoidal non-wrapping cutter design for the shredders, which it says is excellent for breaking down films and fibers. All Republic rotors are solid, one-piece forgings, while bolt-in counter knives are reversible and can be sharpened.

These low-speed, high-torque shredders are available in widths from 42 to 90 in. and with 40- to 300- hp motors. They feature touchscreen PLC controls with programmable settings to run a wide variety of applications.
