Powerful horizontal wood shredder greatly reduces your disposal costs.

The Weima Leopard Series Horizontal Wood Waste Shredders are part of Weima’s horizontal single-shaft shredder series designed for shredding linear wood waste. This shredder is great for turning solid wood waste into chips. The shredded material is placed into a vibratory infeed conveyor that is the same width as the machine itself. This conveyor feeds the material consistently into the shredder. Horizontal shredders are known within the wood industry and are found in many woodworking shops. In addition to its compact design, the WEIMA horizontal shredders have a low rotor speed, which helps with noise control. This makes it possible for the machine to be placed directly near the woodworking machine rather than under it for the processing of MDF and solid wood.

The material to be shredded is fed into a feed channel with the same width as the shredding machine. Material intake is assisted by in feed rollers which transport the material to the rotor. Material in feed operates according to load, i.e. if the shredding roller is consuming too much power, the feed system switches off automatically until the material in the system has been shredded. This procedure is repeated until the parts are shredded. The size of the chips is determined by a screen positioned around the rotor.
