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.

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.
