Unlimited Resources Corporation (URC) currently has for sale one used (IDM) Raptor Model R-162 Shredder powered directly by a two 150 H.P. electric motors. This is without a doubt one of the highest production machines manufactured in the United States today. And in combination with this high production factor they are also the most user friendly machines to operate and work on in the industry. These machines are quickly becoming the “work horses” of the Tire Recycling Industry. These are the heaviest duty manufactured machines in the USA.
This machine offers you the “Lift and Swap” design rotor shaft assemblies that allow for very quick knife changes. The shaft size or diameter on this machine is an 11” which is one of the largest in the industry. The Raptor shredder also offers a much improved stack locking system for keeping your knives tight on your cutter shafts. The Raptor shredder also offers a much better seal protection than most of the other manufactures with both splash plates and seal guards to protect the seals. The Raptor shredder has bearings that are housed in field replaceable housing with seals on both sides using grease instead of oil.
The machine we currently have just came in off a job and it could be configured to have one of several different rotors placed back in the machine to better match up to the job that you need done at your particular location to meet your shredding needs. You won’t find anywhere in the Industry a shredder that is manufactured as heavy duty as the (IDM) Raptor shredder is. And finding a used one at all is next to impossible because everybody that purchases one of these units has fallen in love with their high production rates and all the other user friendly operation and maintenance functions that are available on these machines and they don’t put them up for sale.
IDM offers the Raptor in three different configurations, primary shredder (shreds whole off-road, semi-truck, or passenger tires), chipper (takes any pre-shredded tire material down to 2” chips), and tire grinder (takes 2” tire chips down to ¾” and liberates the majority of the wire out of the rubber). Each of these will use the same basic cutter box, shaft assemblies, bearings, and drive components. And because each of these machines use the same cutter box they can easily be changed from one application to another by simply doing a rotor change which is made easy with their “Lift and Swap” design.
This Shredder is being sold with a custom built in-feed hopper, a custom built shredder stand and complete electric control panel. We also have a 4’ X 30’ Vibratory Action Screen classifier available if anyone needed this as a whole TDF system. And we could custom build whatever conveyors you might need to complete the whole system. Pricing of this system is only available after we know exactly what rotor configuration you would want to have put in this shredder and there are also several different knife configurations available to decide on once you’ve made up your mind which one of the three rotor configurations you would like. Each of these knife configurations cost a different amount; therefore we are not in a position to price the machine until we know exactly what you need in the way of a production machine.
