  • "Green Bandits into the Emerald Isle"

    Global Recycling are pleased to announce another Bandit delivery into Ireland via our Irish Representative, Graham Carroll.

    The latest delivery saw a model 1390XP and 990XP being installed with Brendan Fox of Arbutus Tree Services who are based just outside of Donard in Co. Wicklow.

    The 15 inch capacity 1390XP was built to Brendan’s exact specification, featuring a 140HP John Deere Engine, and a radio remote system for control of feed wheels and the famous Bandit hydraulic top lift. This allows Brendan to remotely control the chipper when crane feeding, or the system can be switched over to manual operation for when hand feeding the machine.

    The 1390XP features a cavernous infeed opening of 16 inches by 20 inches, and with an oversize hopper, allows material to be pulled in and crushed with less trimming of limbs, also added to this, having one of the strongest set of feed wheel motors on the market, this chipper can ‘Pull for Ireland’ when processing whole trees.

    At the heart of the machine is an oversize drum measuring in at a huge 37 inches. The drum is fitted with 4 dual edged knives at 90 degree intervals, and an oversize drum shaft and pillow block bearings take care of the loads that this drum encounters. As standard, Bandit put a ‘5 year guts warranty’ on the drum of all drum chippers due to the strength and build quality.

    As with all Bandit drum chippers, the drum housing features a ‘power slot’ which allows air to be drawn into the housing , aiding with chip discharge through the fully adjustable discharge chute. Also the housing is fitted with adjustable vents that allow chip throwing distance to be increased or reduced, depending on what you’re chipping into. This means that you can effectively pack the back of a chip truck right to the back doors with minimal chip loss.

    The smaller brother to the 1390XP is the 12 inch capacity 990XP.

    Again, the 990XP is a drum chipper, but is fitted with a smaller 24 inch drum, but with exactly the same knife setup as the 1390XP.

    Powering this model is an 85HP Kubota Engine, which is more than capable of processing 12 inch timber.

    The infeed opening on this machine is 13 inches by 17 inches, also fitted with an oversize hopper which allows easy limb crushing and less trimming, and therefore speeds up the chipping process allowing you to carry out work more quickly and efficiently.

    Both machines are ‘winch ready’ allowing fitment of a Bandit hydraulic winch that mounts to the top of the infeed hopper. This will give you up to 2 tonnes of pulling force when that section of tree can’t be reached by man or machine.

    With oversized infeed hoppers, a large pulling force, and 4 knife drums, these machines quickly and efficiently process material with ease, allowing the operator to get the job done quicker, therefore allowing , more work to be done in a day, which in turn allows more invoices to be printed!

    Bandit’s design and build quality will give you a chipper that will last many many years of service, no matter what you throw at it!

    With over 15 Bandit machines already into Ireland since March 2014, the future’s not just bright, the future is BANDIT !!

  • "Keeping your DATA safe ……………………………"

    Keeping your DATA safe ……………………………


    Global Recycling Solutions Ltd trading as Shred-Tech UK are pleased to announce delivery of an MDX-1 High Security Shredder to DataSafe Storage based in Newcastle upon Tyne.


    DataSafe Storage has been established in the ‘Information Management’ business since 1991. They have been offering off-site secure confidential destruction from the beginning, but thought it was about time they provided their clients with the best, most up to date on-site solution.


    “I was President of PRISM International in 2006 and therefore very close to NAID and its members.  It was a couple of these members, on both sides of the Atlantic that recommended Shred-Tech to me.  We have since taken delivery of our Shred-Tech 18T MDX-1H and are extremely pleased with the shredding performance, along with the after-sales service support offered by Global Recycling Solutions Ltd” commented Kevin Bell


    Peter Banks, Managing Director of Shred-Tech UK, commented that the vehicle will enable Datasafe Storage to provide ‘high capacity’ shredding with a throughput of up to 2,950 kg per hour whilst in standard mode, producing a 15.3mm strip shred.  At the touch of a button and ‘on the fly’, the operator can change over to the ultra ‘high security’ mode in just 4 seconds.  The shredder will then produce a cross cut shred that has been certified to Level P-3 on the DIN 66399 shredding standards.  Level P-3 is for Very High Protection for Confidential and Top Secret Data which if disclosed could have terminal consequences for a Company or Government Entity, and have a health and safety or personal freedom risk to individuals. In this mode throughput is up to 1,150 kg per hour. The vehicle has a payload up to 6,000 kg.


    Shred-Tech just keeps on going with their long line of innovations.  With the introduction of the ‘MDS-2’ into the U.K. market, increasing throughput on the standard MDS range by 25% and the ‘Static STX-1’, which works exactly the same as the shredding system in the MDX-1, there really is no stopping Shred-Tech …….

  • "Bagnall and Morris Expand Fleet"


    Due to the expansion of their mobile shredding business, Paul Jarmay of Bagnall and Morris explained the reason behind their choice of the Shred-Tech MDS-2 18 Tonne Mobile Document Shredder.

    “When we decided to expand our ‘Secure Document Destruction’ side of the business in Manchester, the Directors had a certain criteria which was specific and had to be met by the Supplier.  It had to be reliable, with a proven throughput and manufactured to our exact standards.  After careful consideration we approached, who in our opinion met all our requirements, Global Recycling Solutions Ltd who market the Shred-Tech range of shredding equipment for the UK and Europe.  We looked at all the options that are available and decided the Shred-Tech MDS-2 would provide everything we wanted.

    The quality of build, of both the shredder and the finished truck were in our opinion superb and clearly demonstrated not only attention to detail from both Global Recycling Solutions and the Shred-Tech  product, but we also felt demonstrated Bagnall & Morris’s own brand in a very positive and progressive light.

    The backup and knowledge displayed by all the staff we dealt with was first-class. The finished truck was delivered to site on time and to a very high standard.

    The Shred-Tech MDS-2 has proved to be a great investment for us at Bagnall & Morris and we have been very pleased with all aspects of our relationship with Global Recycling Solutions”  commented by Paul Jarmay

    The MDS-2 is now in service and has delivered on the promised throughput of 2,500kgs an hour and has surpassed this figure regularly.
