MEMBER News: Vecoplan’s PT24 Mobile Shred Truck Marks Significant Milestone
September 16, 2020
ARCHDALE, N.C. – Vecoplan, LLC*’s North Carolina assembly line is building the 50th PT24 Mobile Shred Truck since its “reintroduction” last year with an important new feature: a smaller, more efficient hydraulic cyclone tank.
The tank operates the shredder on significantly less hydraulic oil, resulting in nearly 350 pounds less weight than the standard hydraulic tank. In addition to the weight reduction, maintenance is easier and annual oil replacement is much less expensive.
“We’ve been gratified with customer response to the PT24,” said Vecoplan paper and mobile shred sales manager, Cameron Cecil. “The cyclone hydraulic tank has proven to be a desirable feature of our truck, which already boasts industry-leading technology and performance, easy maintenance, 24-7 service, and the industry’s best warranty.”
Vecoplan’s trucks are the only shred trucks built in the U.S.A. Because of demand, the company recently expanded its manufacturing facility in North Carolina.
Cincinnati-based Document Destruction has acquired six Vecoplan PT24 mobile shred trucks over the past two years.
”There’s a lot of technology in the truck, but it’s the most driver- and user-friendly truck I’ve seen,” said owner Mike Callihan. “I appreciate that Vecoplan purposely built their truck for guys who don’t need an engineering degree to operate it.”
North Carolina-based Vecoplan, LLC, is a subsidiary of Vecoplan AG located in Germany. The company is a manufacture of industrial and mobile shredders for size reduction of virtually any material, selling into plastics, wood, biomass, paper, recycling, and waste, and waste-to-energy markets.
