Horizontal Grinder

[High-Speed Shredder]

A type of grinder/recycler with a horizontal style feed hopper versus a tub style.

Horizontal grinders have several key advantages. Due to the horizontal feed, feedstock is not limited to the feed opening and are typically safer than tub grinders due to minimized thrown objects. Because the hammermill is not exposed, thrown objects are less likely, making horizontal grinder far safer.

In some countries, a horizontal grinder would be referred to as a high speed shredder.
