12V Revy with "Shredder" board - What does this mean?

I just purchased this loader:



The seller had this to say:

Quote:
YOU ARE BIDDING ON THE OLD STYLE REVY WITH THE SOFT PLASTIC VERY HARD TO BREAK AND I HAVE UPGRADED THIS REVY WITH SHREDDER BOARD AND THE SHREDDER PADDLES FEEDS VERY FAST FOR A REVY COULD DOUBLE TAP AND EBLADED COCKER ON IT PRETTY GOOD WORKS 100% GOOD LUCK!!!
Basically, I understand that there was the VL2000 Shredder (18V) but have only heard of these Shredder boards in a Revy under one situation, and that was a Turbo Revy (being referred to as a "Shredder V. 3.0 Board").

Did I in fact purchase another Turbo Revy? From the picture, I can not tell if the on/off is a push button or toggle switch, but it appears to be a toggle.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,

Rob

It looks like a pretty standard revy from the pic.
I'm guessing he's just changed the internal board. I thought the shredder was just an aftermarket board, so its not like you'd see a hopper shell that said something like "shredder inside".

Maybe you could get a clearer description from the seller in an email.

When will these idiots learn that just ending a paragraph with 3 exclamation points does not make up for the lack of punctuation in the first 5 lines.

I understand that you could not tell from the outside unless it was a Turbo Revy, in which case would have a push button on/off rather than a switch.

My real question is, what is a Shredder board? Is it any different than a stock or X-Board?

Thanks for the input Scrap.

I thought shredders were 18v instead of 12V. They teneded to shred paintballs, and use batteries fast, if I am thinking about the right ones.

there were 18v revies, most VL3000s are 18V infact. The board sent a full 18 to the servo to ha it spin faster. They tended to burn out servos as a primary problem, and then the 12v board came out.
As far as I know measuting the servo output voltage from the board is the best way to know, it should be either almost 12 or almost 18.

^ correct.

As I am told the name shredder more applies to how the paddles would crush paint in the hopper instead of just mixing/agitating.

So I cant see it being a beneficial board to have, Also with the advent of the 12 volt output boards the batteries lasted longer as a result of some circuitry work.

18V revy board = bad on paint and batteries.

I wish those 9v 200 round hoppers would come out. (supposedly for the maxx 55) They hold 100 .68 rounds.

My impression is that the only difference between the original 18v Shredder board, and the later 12v Revvie boards was that the 12v boards had a voltage regulator to bump the 18v down to 12v.

The problem primarily being that the 18v systems burned out motors. Rather badly.

Lots of the hopper mods you see on PBN is simply bypassing the voltage reg to increase motor speed... which also ends up burning out the motor.

I ran a shredder for years before I sold the VL3000 to a tanker.

I personally believe the burn out hype was somewhat hype-ish.

The "Shredder” term wasn't a pejorative either. Back in the day it was a skiing or skating term, and was considered "agg".
