Cresswood Adds 50-inch Grinder
Horizontal, End-Feed Machine Available in More Compact Size

Cresswood Recycling Systems has added a 50-inch wide machine to its line of horizontal end-feed Destroyer grinders. Engineered with the same characteristics as the 60-inch end-feed grinder but with a compact size, this machine is capable of grinding pallets or scrap wood into a uniform product for horse bedding, mulch, or boiler fuel.

Cresswood, a leader in low rpm grinding technology, designed its first low rpm horizontal grinder in 1992. For the past 10 years, design improvements generated by customer experience have been incorporated into its machines. These improvements have also led to a lower purchase price.

One of the hallmarks of the Cresswood horizontal grinder is its counter-weighted, air-assist, feed roll drive system. This system allows materials in a wide range of size (such as whole pallets, 7-inch blocks or thin veneer) to be pulled easily into the grinding chamber.

The air cylinder places pressure (which can be adjusted to accommodate different types of material) on the wood to insure a positive feed process. The feed roll is controlled by a digital drive that allows it to speed up or slow down, according to the load on the main cutterhead.
