You can use a single shaft shredder and you can also use a double shaft shredder. Single shaft shredder works better. Because it has a hydraulic pusher to push the drums into the cutter. Single shaft shredding machine works for all sizes of drums. But you need to make sure the feed throat is enough big. For some thick-wall drums, single shaft shredder also works. Double shaft shredder is not an optimal choice for drums. Because the drum may jump above the blades. For some small drums, double shaft shredder works well. However for some big size drums, we do not suggest his type of shreder.
