The Franklin Miller Inc TASKMASTER TM8500 food waste shredders feature dual, counter-rotating cutters that intermesh at close clearance at low speed under extremely high torque.
This unit can be configured for coarse shredding as well as fine grinding, for small scale up to large scale applications. It is provided in either carbon steel or stainless steel construction. The unit has a compact design with 8.5” wide cutting chamber, 2” hex shaft and up to a 5 HP drive. As the cam shaped cutters intermesh at close clearance, they cut, shear, tear, slice, and rip apart a variety of materials into smaller pieces typically in a strip or chip-like output shape.
