The versatile wood shredder with a high throughput

The HL 4/18/25 share all the benefits the HL 4/18/20 has to offer but with and extended loading bay. The wood shredder produces a high quality granulate for immediate use in wood chip heating systems or briquett-generation using peripheral systems that can be connected if needed such as metal separators or pipe magnets that we can customise to your needs. As the hopper design is adapted to your individual requirements, loading may be done either by wheel loader, forklift, grabber or even manually.

Energy-efficientcy particularly important for our machines that run continuously. For this reason, the HL 4/18/25 uses our unique knife design with a specific 57mm blade design with a front pocked that ensures fast shredding using very little energy. In addition, the motor shuts down automatically if no material is fed into the machine for more than 3 minutes. This saves energy and lowers your operating costs at the same time. In addition, the HL 4/18/25 features a mechanism that detects foreign objects and automatically shuts down the shredder. This prevents damage to the cutting unit. Energy efficiency plays a big role in the HL 4/18/25.

We offer turnkey solutions with high customizability. Each of our wood shredders is customized to your needs. The machines can be equipped with a metal separator, a conveyor system or a customized hopper or combined with other machines for further refinement of the granulate.

The drive capacities range from 55 to 90 kW and outputs between 1,000 and 5,000 kg/h, depending input and the screen mesh size.

Scanhugger steel knife with pucket design

Our knife design and precision mounting arrangement ensure long tool life, optimal chip quality, and easy maintenance. Our exclusive machined chip pocket in front of each knife position allows for chips to clear out of the cut, thereby maximizing the cutting action and the output of the chips. The knife can be rotated up to four times which allows for longer uses of a single blade. The knife and the precision mounting arrangement ensure a long tool life, optimal chip quality, and easy maintenance.


The rotor, knife design together with the heavy duty chip screen ensures a high chip quality. The screen has square perforations ranging from 15 - 70 mm. which helps ensure the heterogeneous chip size. The produced chip then be used as fuel or as a raw material for production of animal bedding, or for further processing for briquettes and pellets.
