The Bowell WC 8M is
best used with a tractor engine power of 40 to 60HP. The advanced shaft
driven system pulls the wood into the shredder by two rollers installed
in the input section of the shredder. There are two knifes mounted on
the 90kg rotor plus a counter knife shredding wood up to 15cm in
diameter into 1 to 4cm pieces. We
are the only factory in this price and product range to offer fully
balanced rotor discs, to ensure a smooth performance. The discharge
funnel can be turned by 230° with an adjustable throwing angle to easily
fill material onto trailers, containers and big bags. The Bowell WC 8M
capacity is up to 7 m³/h depending on the type of wood. The
WC-8M does not need any hydraulic system and yet offering the same
professional performance than expensive hydraulic shredders. A special
feature of this shredder is, that it is driven by a 5 belt system with a
gear ratio of 2:1, so that the blade rotor turns with twice the speed
than the 540rpm PTO shaft. You will get much smaller shredded wood
pieces than with other shredders.
The drive shaft driven roller is pulling the wood into the shredder. This makes work fast and easy.
The Cat I 3-point hitch includes additional Cat II bushings, so that
you can also connect to larger tractors without any problem.
The shredded wood material is thrown out of the output funnel by an
enormous air-suction, generated by the winglets mounted to the fast
turning rotor disc. Once shredding difficult material additional
ventilation holes can be opened to further increase the air flow.
