Williams Ripshear® Shredders feature a slow speed, high torque disc-cutting action that reduces materials quietly, cleanly, and economically with minimum vibration.
While tearing and fracturing are common shredding methods, the Ripshear Slow-Speed Shredders offered by Williams utilize a motion that cuts material like scissors and can be used across many applications.
Williams offers two types of Ripshear® slow-speed shredders: Hydraulic Shredders and Electric Shredders. See more below about the versatility and features of the slow-speed shredders only Williams can provide. Or contact us today to determine the best shredder for your needs.

Features of Williams Ripshear® Shredders

High speed isn’t always the best option, and when it comes to designing our shredders, Williams knows that. Low speed paired with high torque hydraulic drive can reduce power requirements for certain jobs, increasing efficiency and lowering power costs.
Because of the slow speed of our shredders, the Ripshear® does not create high windage and ignition sources found in high speed shredders. This minimizes fires and explosions to keep you, your employees, and property safe.
Williams shredding equipment is of the highest quality, but when it is time for maintenance, it shouldn’t be a burden on you. The bushings allow pull out, and by removing the front cover, shafts and cutter disks are exposed for maintenance without having to disassemble bearings.
