Bandit Helps Recycle Wood Waste
Date Posted: 5/2/2005
High energy prices and expanding mulch markets are providing demand for utilization of sawmill and logging waste. Banditís Beasts can help ensure that you get top dollar for your processed wood waste!!
††††††††††† Banditís unique cutter bodies provide a smooth, controlled cut and protect the cuttermill when encountering contaminants. The cutting action is best described by comparing an ax to a
sledge hammer. Which would you rather use to cut down a tree?
Model 4680 Sawtooth Cutter Holder
††††††††††† This break-away tool holder, designed like a sawtooth, regulates the depth of cut and provides some protection from foreign materials. Production is maximized while making a consistent product and protecting the mill.
Sawtooth Cutter with Raker Insert
††††††††††† A raker ahead of the cutting tool regulates the length of cut while providing the break-away tool holder some protection from rocks, steel and other foreign materials. The raker is available with a replaceable insert.
Break-Away Cutter Holder
††††††††††† The cutter holder limits the bite of the cutting, splitting or grinding tool, which is important in controlling the size of the product and helps maximize engine horsepower by not taking too large of a bite. The fixed break-away tool holders are heavy enough to cut through most materials, including nails, spikes and metal. When striking materials such as rock and heavy metal, the tool holders bend back out of the way, protecting the cuttermill and limiting damage to only a few holders and a few bits. Damaged bits can be replaced in minutes. The tool holders attach to the arms with two grade 8 bolts. Should foreign material heavily impact the tool holder and break, the bolts will keep the tool holder in place. This will prevent the broken piece from ruining any more holders or cutting tools.
††††††††††† The Beastís unique cuttermill allows you to cut, split or grind, depending on the material and type of end product desired. A controlled infeed speed, controlled depth of cut, a choice of cutting tools and a multitude of screen choices allows for endless possibilities in size and shape of the end product. The Beast cuttermills properly size material in the first pass, reducing the amount of energy required for making the product.
††††††††††† Beast Recyclers produce high quality mulch and fuel products that bring top dollar. The Beast will also produce a consistent raw material for pressed board from construction and pallet waste. The Beasts easily process large diameter material, which means recycling logging slash and cull material is easy on the machine. Hydraulic thrower options are available to load end-opening trailers.
††††††††††† More than 600 Beast Recyclers are in operation converting unwanted wood waste into high value products.
††††††††††† Banditís product line is supported by more than 80 trained dealers worldwide and is supported by an extensive service and demo team. Bandit welcomes the opportunity to bring these recyclers to your site to show you how the Beast can turn unwanted wood waste into valuable products.
