Vertical axis shredder

Vertical Axis Shredder

This is a machine that is hauled using a tractor. It is a rather big machine fitted with shredders at its base driven by a motor and is enclosed in a rather flat chamber. It uses the mechanism that is mounted in the chamber and driven by a motor located on the exterior. It has wheels on the rear hence making it easy to pull it around while working with it.  It is used to shredder plants.


The shredder was invented by Anthony Conigliaro of Sherborn, MA in the United States of America in 1986. It was initially patented as a shredder for leaves and other garden and yard refuse. The machine has lately been improved and advanced putting even additional features to it hence the various sub categories.
