Designed to chew up difficult materials like railroad ties, the Morbark Predator couples slow speed with high torque to take on jobs too tough for high-speed grinding. The shredder develops 950,000 inch-pounds of torque to each rotor through two transmissions with 99-to-1 reduction ratios. A 64-inch-by-76-inch shredder opening feeds material up to 15 inches in diameter into counter meshing rotors with hooked star shredders mounted to the rotor in a spiral pattern. Each hooked star has a double-edged tooth staggered across the star for complete coverage and a total tip diameter of 33 inches. The 48-inch-wide continuous discharge conveyor belt has a height of 138 inches and a cross belt magnet to remove ferrous material.
