  • Description
  • Specs


The classic model for shredding all kinds of wood waste. Thousands of shredders in series WL 4 – WL 6 – WL 8 are used all over the world from small to medium sized businesses. 

Their distinguishing feature is a very rugged construction enabling offering long service (even positioned outdoors). 

The global popularity of this shredder series assures high reliability at a competitive price to performance ratio.

Material is fed through the hopper to fall in front of a hydraulically operated drawer that presses the material, according to load, onto the turning rotor. The material is shredded between the rotor knives and a fixed stationary counter knife. 

The drawer is equipped with castellation as is the floor to prevent materials being lodged between the drawer and the machine casing. Material discharge adaptor ready for conveying by an air extraction system, screw or belt conveyor. 

The profiled innovative “V” Rotor is made of solid material and mounted on stable rotor bearings. Special blade holders are welded into milled blade pockets around its circumference.

The cutting knives are set into these and screwed on from the back. This ensures quick and easy blade changing. The concave cutting knives can be rotated four times to ensure a precise cut with high throughput performance. 

The WL 8 shredder differs from the WL 4 and WL 6 machines by delivering the greatest throughput as a result of rotor dimension, hopper volume and a number of knives.
