mobile shredder equipment


Below are processing guidelines for the NEXT 6280. While this list is not complete, it is intended to show examples of the size and type of materials that can be processed and those that need to be avoided.


  • WHITE GOODS — washers, dryers, refrigerators, hot water heaters, lawn mowers, bicycles, etc.
  • MISCELLANEOUS STRUCTURAL SHAPES — angle iron, channel, I-beams, and pipe with maximum material thickness not exceeding 1/4".
  • AUTO AND TRUCK PARTS – Including engines, axles, transmissions, wheels, leaf springs, fenders, hoods, etc.
  • PLATE — Sheet Metal up to 7 gauge that has lots of holes cut in can also be shredded. It is important that they are not “laminated” (multiple layers), and enter only one at a time with other loose scrap.
  • REBAR — smaller than 1/2" in diameter, put into the shredder with other loose scrap.


  • PLATE — of any size thicker than 1/2".
  • SOLID STEEL SHAFTING — larger than 2” in diameter and longer than 24".
  • FABRICATED ITEMS —built like a box, may need to be crushed or collapsed so they can be fed under the feed rolls and fit through the shredder opening.
  • STRINGY MATERIAL — wire rope or cables longer than 10 feet should absolutely not be fed into the shredder. There is significant risk of long material entering the shredder, wrapping around the rotor and being pulled in at a very high speed, possibly causing death or injury to anyone near the shredder.
