Steel drums can be relatively easily shredded provided the shredder configuration is correct. For 204L (44 gallon) steel drums our AZ50HD fitted with 62mm cutters is ideal. If only this type of drum is to be shredded then a standard AZ50HD can be used with the drum being fed in endways.

Where 20L or smaller drums are also to be processed, a ram hopper is required to ensure that these objects can be effectively grabbed. A ram hopper can also be used for 204L drums when they are fed sideways into the hopper.
