The features include – direct
drives, double sidewalls, reversible counter knives, hydraulic swing-up screen
carriages, rotatable screens, and externally adjustable counter knives.

Direct drives increase
torque, eliminate drive belts, lower maintenance costs and decrease machine
base widths. Double sidewalls reduce wear, eliminate contamination of and heat
transfer to bearings, increase durability and lower maintenance costs.
Reversible counter knives deliver twice the life while cutting replacement
costs in half.

Hydraulic swing-up screen
carriages provide quick and easy access to rotor for cutter replacements, and
ample access to cutting chamber easy cleanout, tramp metal removal, and other routine
maintenance. Rotatable screens can be turned 180° increasing wear life by a
factor of 1.5.

Externally adjustable
counter knives allow operators to maintain optimal cutting tolerances quickly
and easily. This is especially beneficial when shredding thin materials.
