The shredder is an impressive goblin mechanical creature which is usually piloted by a goblin. Shredders are used for lumbering, but they can serve in war because of the solid metal construction of the machine and the great saws they wield.
The first machine designed to mimic the humanoid form, goblin shredders use the steamsaws attached to their arms to cut down lumber at an incredible rate that is unmatched by peasant work crews. It moves at 10 miles per hour and has a crew of 1 usually designed for goblin-sized creatures, though larger version have been built).
This invention allows a single goblin to do as much harvesting as ten field hands.
Another goblin invention, called a "mechanical planter", does the opposite of the shredder; it plants new trees.
Notes and trivia
The Kerrigan easter egg.
According to Bixy Buzzsaw, shredders have a new operating system that crashes every five minutes.
Looking into the cockpit of a shredder, one can see an image depicting an infested Sarah Kerrigan (from the StarCraft series) on the screen.
The new shredder model first introduced in with the [Sky Golem] features a similar easter egg, but with a picture of Kerrigan from StarCraft II rather than the original StarCraft.
