Feet-powered shredder ?
Hi everyone !
After reading and searching for the shredder motor,
I have decided to try a manually powered shredder.
The way I see it, I would built the shredder exactly the same way, but I would attach gearings to the axis, linked with either a crank or (more likely) a bike pedal.
According to the Interner, you can create between 200 to 500 watts with your feet, which seems acceptable if we can reduce enough the rotation speed.
I would like to build it modularly, in case we can eventually find a suitable motor, so I need to be able to detach the shredder from the power supply system.
What do you guys think ?
I’ll be greatful for any advice, ideas or experience.
Thanks in advance,

Yes, what you proposed is feasible and has been tried with promising results.
Have a look at this topic for more inspiration:
Thanks, it’s very interisting yet it is not exactly what I hab in mind :/
I’d like to use a bike to power it
