That shredder was built by MacKissic in Parker Ford, PA, and was known as a Model 5-P.  ....It had a 3hp B&S engine.


These units were painted green and sold under the Mighty Mac name, painted yellow and sold under the IH brand, painted red and sold under the Snapper brand, as well as different colors for other brands. ...However, all these units were built by MacKissic.


The engine was bolted to a steel plate which was hinged to the unit shown.  ...A "jack" screw raised the hinged plate to adjust belt tension. ...The engine was equipped with a centrifugal clutch.
