Germany-based Hammel Recyclingtechnik GmbH announces that its VB 750 DK primary shredder is equipped with a more powerful Cat C13 Tier 4i engine with approximately 480 horsepower. According to the company, the bigger engine allows the machine to increase its output by more than 20 percent.

Additionally, the shredder has been equipped with a more robust track system that allows it to navigate difficult terrain with ease, the company says.

Due to the increased throughput of the machine, more material is able to be processed. In order to optimize the separation of ferrous metal, the shredder has a new track chain drive and a larger magnet to collect material.  

Further, the company says the shredder’s multifunctional shredding shafts give customers the opportunity to process a variety of materials. For instance, the same pair of multifunctional shafts can shred different types of waste (e.g., household, industrial or bulky waste) and wood (e.g., fresh wood and waste wood), as well as aluminum profiles and bales, light mixed scrap and tires.

Additional features include:

• A generously dimensioned radiator with two doors that allows for easier cleaning while preventing overheating.

• An easy-to-use standard mobile PLC control that has three preprogrammed shredding settings and one freely configurable shredding program that allows error messages to be displayed as clear text.

• A discharge height up to 4,800 mm, which facilitates higher stockpiling.

• A 66-degree angle tilting hopper incline that offers an optimal filling position for the feed material.
