Features & Benefits

Series II duplex drum system

The patented Series II duplex drum offers proven cutting performance, and reversible hammers and tips can nearly double wear life and reduce daily maintenance.

Optional chip drum

With an optional chip drum, operators can produce a consistently chipped end product, rather than traditional shredded material, for uses such as biofuel.

Hinged, dual-screen design

The hinged, dual-screen design, along with multiple screen options, helps boost processing efficiency and offers flexibility in end-product sizing.

SmartGrind system

The patented SmartGrind system monitors engine rpm and adjusts grinding speed.

Open-ended, wide infeed table

Material loading is easier and more efficient with an open-ended, wide infeed table.

Thrown object deflector (TOD)

Reduce the amount and distance of thrown material debris, while also reducing interference when loading over-length material, with the thrown object deflector (TOD).
