The interlocking knives of the now extended shafts are designed in such a way that a multifunctional shredding of old and fresh wood, root stocks, railway sleepers, bulky, commercial and household waste as well as old tires and aluminium is possible.

That is the HAMMEL company respond to the market needs of customers who nowadays do not only have to shred one specific material but are supposed to process a variety of material. A neodymium magnet is used to separate FE metals. This is installed in a modified position on the discharge belt and enables more optimal metal separation.

The advantage of the lightweight construction of the neodymium magnet allows the machine to remain essentially the same overall weight in comparison with its predecessor. The newly designed conveyor achieves a discharge height of approx. 4,600 mm. which enables the production of large-volume material heaps or the end product can be transported directly into containers or trucks.

The shredder achieves even more throughput due to both the new environmentally friendly CAT C9.3 - stage 5 engine with its powerful 380 hp and the latest generation of hydraulics.
