The EDGE VS420E Hybrid waste shredder offers significantly reduced COproduction, reduced operating costs, reduced servicing and a higher percentage uptime for its operators. The EDGE VS420E packages all the advantages of a mobile diesel driven unit and that of a stationary electric shredder into one self-contained unit. For the operator, it means minimal operating costs, maximum performance, and enormous flexibility.

 EDGE Innovate’s VS420E Electric Hybrid model replaces the traditional 310Kw CATERPILLAR engine with two 132KW motors that provide the exact same production capacity and torque levels to that of a diesel/hydraulic drive unit. A small 55Kw diesel engine provides the flexibility of tracking, and use of all set up functions. An additional 11Kw auxiliary motor allows for all set up functionality to be available in both “Electric” and “Diesel / Hydraulic” modes. The VS420E offers a host of design features as standard. For instance, to shred, EDGE’s safe and simple “Plug and Shred” function enables operators to connect and disconnect the shredder to the grid in the matter of minutes.

Due to it’s emission free operation, the hybrid waste shredder from EDGE can also be deployed indoors or moved between indoor and outdoor applications. With zero engine noise produced when shredding, the VS420E is the ideal shredding partner in built up areas or in markets where stringent environmental, legislative or noise constraints are enforced.
