Series 1 hard drive shredders consist of two models, a choice between two shred widths, multiple options, and different voltages, including 120v for the AMS-150HD. These slow speed, high torque shredders are manufactured in the U.S. and can be stationary or placed in trucks for mobile hard drive shredding.
Series 1 hard drive shredders should be fed one hard drive at a time, so let the chamber clear before feeding another. The spring-loaded infeed slot is five inches wide and two inches high. A discharge bin is standard but a modular output conveyor can be added for an upcharge. We also offer conveyor prep so you can order an output conveyor separately at any time in the future.
Series 1 hard drive shredders will also shred server hard drives but we recommend the rails be removed first on the AMS-150HD. Server hard drives take at least twice as long to shred as standard drives, on which we base our throughput.
Series 1 hard drive shredders will shred most standard rotary hard drives up to 1″ thick, in addition to backup tapes, DVDs, cell phones, and assorted small e-scrap. A five-inch wide infeed slot is standard but an eleven-inch wide slot is available for an upcharge. This will allow you to shred tablets, which require you to remove the battery first, just as you would with a cell phone.
Series 1 HDD-SSD combo shredders are available in the same horsepower models. Click on the bold print if you want to shred rotary hard drives and solid state drives in one shredder.
