The EDW400 uses the exceptional high performance cutting heads designed for ultimate cutting performance and ease of maintenance. Unlike other manufacturers, EDW's cutters are modular. This allows each blade to be shaped for ultimate performance and to withstand larger staples and other fixings that will jam other machines. The modular approach also allows replacement of individual pieces if accidental damage does occur - far better than the costly replacement of single piece cutters. The special cutter fixing plate also allows easy access, rather than a major stripdown for maintenance.ÊLike all EDW machines, the motor has been mounted away from the dust trap under the cutting head again much improving the life and reliability of components. Dust extraction ports right at the cutting head focus on removing any dust from the stripped board, rather than trying to keep the motor area clean. At the forefront of design with outstanding cutting performance, the EDW400 cardboard shredder is designed to meet the needs of demanding commercial operations. The 16x400mm throat enables the generation of thick protective packaging. The ED400 series is available as a mat, strip or chip shredder, with chips providing an easy pour void fill or animal bedding option unique to the ED range. The ED400 will shred cardboard, cd/dvds, floppy discs and credit cards. Normal cardboard staples will be shredded.
