Mobiles to Riga and Warsaw
The first mobile shredding truck supplied by AXO to the Latvian market began operation in Riga in late 2006. In the same week AXO also supplied a mobile shredding truck to a company in Warsaw, Poland. Mobile shredding is relatively new to Latvia and Poland, and like many countries in Europe these markets are witnessing a rising demand for on-site shredding.
Both companies selected the AXO WM408 Mobile Document Shredding Truck mounted on the DAF LF45 12 Ton GVW Cab-Chassis. In the field operators of the AXO WM408 model report shredding up to 1,000kgs of waste office paper per hour and a paper payload capacity of up to 4,000kgs. While the larger AXO WM608 model shreds quicker and has a greater payload capacity, the AXO WM408 model is popular with new entrants to the mobile shredding industry, especially throughout Europe.
Walking Floor or AXO Rollout Discharge Conveyor?
AXO have for a number of years supplied the AXO Rollout conveyor discharge system, and we feel our system "stacks up well" against other options such as walking floor or tipping. The AXO Rollout Discharge Conveyor unloads in minutes and is extremely reliable. In addition the ceiling height issues sometimes faced with tipping bodies are eliminated with the AXO Rollout. With no practical disadvantages to other systems we feel the AXO Rollout Discharge Conveyor offers the more benefits than other methods.
Used Shredding Equipment in Demand
While many companies are currently upgrading equipment so they can increase the throughput rate and so lower their operational costs, there are others searching for lower volume used machinery. We receive regular enquiry for used electric shredding machines and mobile shredding trucks. In some cases upgrade plans can be bought forward by selling used equipment so an increase in profits and business value is also bought forward If you have used equipment that you may consider upgrading, please contact AXO.
