Typical applications include wood scrap such as blocks, cutoffs, edgings, slabs and trim ends up to 5” thick.  Other applications include veneer roundup, plywood, and particleboard.


The PM series uses PM-GM rings with a 22” cutting circle and a steel flywheel for stored rotational energy to power through momentary surge loads.


The horizontal feed is designed for the processing of long pieces using a vibrating conveyor.


Pieces larger than the hog can process in 5 to 10 seconds can be metered with an available Current Sensing Unit.


The discharge material can typically be conveyed up to 100 feet into a cyclone, truck, or open field using the #40, #50 or #60 Integral Fan.
