Terex Ecotec has expanded its range of mobile equipment with the launch of the TBG 530T. A robust track-mounted high-speed shredder, the TBG 530T is ideal for medium-scale producers requiring an accurate and consistent end product.

Powered by a 493-horsepower Scania DC13 engine, the TBG 530T has been designed to give operators enhanced performance, ease of maintenance and increased fuel efficiency. The shredder is particularly suited to waste wood processing and green waste shredding.

With a rapid set up time, the TBG 530T is ready to work in a matter of minutes with no tooling required. The open-fronted feeder enables the TBG 530T to be fed quickly and easily from the rear. The intelligently controlled feed system, comprising of heavy-duty drag chains and aggressive feed wheel with unique lift/downward assist, ensure optimum material flow.

At the heart of the machine is the 1,100mm diameter x 1,490mm wide swinging hammer rotor. This robust, direct-drive rotor rotates at 1000 RPM and incorporates 30 up-swinging hammers. A wide selection of hammer designs and interchangeable screens are available, allowing the machine to be configured to suit ever-changing product requirements. The TBG 530T also benefits from the added protection of a screen kickback system. Should an unshreddable object enter the shredding chamber, the screen will release, allowing the material to quickly pass through, reducing the risk of accidental damage.

Processed material is removed from the machine via a modular product conveyor with a discharge height of 4.6 metres. This conveyor also lowers to ground level for inspection and maintenance. An optional overband magnet with hydraulic height adjustment can be fitted to remove ferrous metal from the product.

Whether performing daily checks or carrying out maintenance, the TBG 530T offers service access to all key areas of the machine. The electric/hydraulic raise/lower of the screen and interlocked chamber access door allow the rotor and anvil to be inspected with ease.
