F.A.Q

General Questions

  • Do you manufacture all your equipment in-house?

    Answer: All Shredfast equipment is designed, manufactured, and assembled in-house in the United States. Our facility includes a full machine shop, paint booth, parts warehouse, fabrication shop, box shop and assembly areas. We have been committed to manufacturing our own machinery since 1998.

    Answer: We currently occupy two large industrial buildings on about 4 acres of land in Airway Heights, WA. This facility includes a full machine shop, paint booth, parts warehouse, fabrication shop, box shop and assembly areas. Our 65,000 sq/ft manufacturing facility is the largest of its kind in the world. We are undergoing expansion efforts and will soon be relocated to an even larger facility in Cheney, Washington.

General Product Questions

  • Where can I find the Shredfast ID number?

    Answer: A Shredfast ID can be found on every piece of Shredfast equipment. The ID number can be found by locating the aluminum Shredfast ID plate. For mobile shredding and mobile collection vehicles, ID plates are located either on the front of the van body or in the lift area. For other Shredfast equipment, please contact us for ID plate location. It is important to have access to the Shredfast ID number in order to receive proper service and parts information.
  • What does Legal Payload Capacity include?

    Answer: Legal Payload Capacity includes the vehicle with full fluids (including fuel) and a standard size operator. We choose to emphasize Legal Payload as opposed to Payload Capacity. The term Payload Capacity generally exceeds legal weight and could result in unlawful operation. Find this and all other specs in the product pages.
