Pallets are most commonly made of wood, but may also be made of plastic, metal, paper or recycled materials. Pallet shredders are designed to shred and reduce pallets and products and materials similar to them, such as crates, medium-sized wood scraps and corrugated sheets and forms.

Pallet shredders are made with a variety of designs and power sources, but are generally powered by a strong engine and feature robust, sharp blades for shredding. Variable specifications include: drive (electric or otherwise), number of motors, horsepower, voltage, blade thickness, number of blades, blade diameter, hex size, distance between shafts, cutting chamber, discharge height, hopper height and stand opening length and width.

To customize your shredder, manufacturers offer a myriad of optional features, such as PLC interfacing, custom stands and hoppers, feed and discharge conveyors, cart tippers, airveying discharge, explosion-proof motors, pneumatic or hydraulic rams and vibrating, magnetic or rotary separation.

Pallet shredders are useful for both home and industrial applications. One example is landscape cleaning, which can be a project on a private residence or on a building site. In this instance, an operator uses the pallet shredder to shred wood that cannot be salvaged for other projects as-is. The pulverized wood chips may then be disposed of or sold for use in the creation of pressed wood products like pressboard.

This practice is comparatively Earth-friendly, preventing wood/material burning and encouraging recycling. Pallet shredders are routinely used to repurpose old and used materials and structures. They are a great choice for preparing materials for uses like mulching or insulating. This material may mulch flowerbeds, insulate homes, provide definition for walking paths and more.

Other typical applications of pallet shredders include: MSW reduction, landfill densification, landfill mining reclamation, disaster clean-up, fuel feedstock, composting, rendering and total product destruction.
