designs for the Model 2680XP, 3680XP and 4680XP Beast Recyclers allow these
machines to excel in processing dense, stringy green waste like palms, vines,
and coastal vegetation.
The changes begin with the cuttermill, which features a
30-tooth setup with 2-inch wide teeth as opposed to the standard 60-tooth,
1-inch wide arrangement. While a 60-tooth set up is still the best for grinding
larger diameter wood, in leafy / stringy material void of larger material the
30-tooth setup is extremely efficient. The mill RPM is also increased which
helps clear the mill faster, while the mill housing itself is opened up.
Increased tolerances and a larger screening area add to the overall machine
throughput, delivering a better end-product quicker, and with lower fuel
Also, a new proportional drive system for hydraulics on the
Beast's feed system will help deliver maximum feeding rates without overfeeding
the machine. This new system will monitor engine loads and automatically adjust
the feed rate to match. The new system has the ability to not only
proportionally feed, but can also switch over to six different feed speeds with
the touch of a button for people desiring the most uniform products possible.
As a result of these enhancements and options, operators can
utilize Beast recyclers to quickly and efficiently process coastal vegetation,
viney material and similar green waste that is often problematic with other
