   The EDGE VS420 is controlled via the latest EDGE Operating System (EOS) which EDGE says provides improved user-friendly controls and allows the operators greater control over program settings, shaft speed and
reverse cycles. “For example, the VS420 operating system provides five factory pre-set shredder programs for
demolition wood, general waste, green waste,
mattresses, and compost so that operators can jump quickly from one application to another and still achieve favourable outputs. There are three additional program settings that can be tailored by the operator to suit their specific input materials.” Tom says.
The EDGE VS420 is powered via a Caterpillar C9.3B Tier 4 Final / Stage V ACERT engine with a power rating of 310Kw (420HP). Caterpillar’s SCR technology reduces engine emissions and provides a robust and economical solution for EDGE’s customers. Fuel consumption is 9% less than comparable Stage IIIB engine options.
Operator safety and maintenance
“The VS420 has been designed around the operator to ensure enhanced operational and maintenance safety. For example, EDGE’s uplifting power unit, radiator and chamber doors ensure superior maintenance access which is complimented by a “One Point” service area which enables daily maintenance checks to be done easier and quicker.” Tom says, “Operators can access fuel and adblue tanks, air filters and oil gauge; all from a single vantage point.”
The EDGE VS420 also offers added remote functionality as standard. All major functions on the VS420 including tracking, tipping hopper, shafts speed, engine speed, shaft reverse cycle, discharge conveyor working angle and magnet position can be remotely operated from a safe distance of up to 100m or in the comfort of the loaders cabin.
EDGE Innovate’s next generation shredder has been proven to “achieve high-capacity throughputs, operational reliability, and offers low operational costs.”
