What other machines use the motors we need?
Hi, im in colombia and im searching for the motors we need to build the shreeder and its kind of imposible but what other machines use this kind of engine? it could be a little bit easier to find the machine in a scrap yard and get the motor out of it
I use a windscreen wiper motor from a scrap car for the extruder. Some people have suggested washing machine motor.
The shredder needs a slow but powerful motor. Think 1/4 to 1/2 horse power up.
thanks! ill look for the windscreen wiper one!
Did the windscreen wiper work to power the shredder?
1.1kw motor with a 20:1 gearbox is what’s recommended. This is hard to come by. I suggest floating around the forums for a bit, that worked best for me. I decided on using a bike instead, but washing machine motors are said to have the power and a belt should slow things down with less cost.
