Powerful Pallet
Shredder Compactor

Are you searching for a compactor that has the added ability of shredding tough materials like pallets and plastic crates down? You can stop searching!

Elephants Foot are proud to supply a stationary auger compactor which includes a heavy-duty crusher that will have no problems crushing the toughest recyclable materials down to nothing, making it small enough for the world-class compactor to do its job.

All of the products that we have available to our customers are planned by first-class designers, and built to the highest standard of quality.

Why It Runs So Smoothly

Each of our pallet shredder compactors includes an automatic lubrication system, which makes sure there is ample lubrication being applied to the various points in the machine that require it.

The tough wood crushing component of the pallet shredder compactor has motors that run independently to the compactor, and has the power to obliterate wooden pallets and crates, plastic crates and cardboard roll cores, and all other heavy duty materials.

This state of the art technology is chainless – it uses an electro-mechanical direct drive, which reduces the amount of maintenance required by increasing its overall reliability.

Automatic Lubrication System

All necessary lubrication points on the machine bearing / drive pinion are supplied regularly by a central, automatic lubrication system.This will aid in the reduction of service calls and compactor downtime.

Wood Crusher

The timber pre-crusher is designed to crush pallets and assist in the feeding of the hopper. Running on its own independent motors, the pre crusher reverses to unblock any materials stuck in the

hopper. Compaction rate for timber is approximately 200kg/m3.

Electro-mechanical direct drive Auger

The Electro-mechanical direct drive is the new technology that replaces the traditional drive chain that runs the auger. No chains! Thanks to this system, the Auger operates with total reliability and requires very little maintenance.
