High-Torque Single-Shaft Shredder Eggersmann Z 50

Shredder for almost all applications. Able to make a specified and consistent end product in just one pass if required

The wide range of applications with the new generation of Eggersmann universal shredders is impressive and almost endless.

The Eggersmann series machines are as efficient as possible, able to shred waste wood, roots, green waste, logs, C&D waste, commercial waste, MSW, or even tires, plastics, mattresses or batches of special material and more.

Like the other Eggersmann shredders, the Eggersmann Z 50 also has replaceable shredding teeth. Thanks to the double-bolt locking the risk of losing it is very unlikely and changing the, is very easy. The (Standard) Multigrip teeth are perfect to shred wood waste, green waste, MSW, C&D waste, commercial waste, plastics or even railroad ties, while the Rootgrip teeth are specially designed to shred green waste and roots only. 

Another important feature of the machine is the large and wide conveyor belts, which enable material discharge, free from jamming, with all applications. The material dropping height is up to 16.5 ft. The conveyor belt speed can be adjusted infinitely.
