COMMERCIAL SCRAP CHOPPERS

MODEL 517 XHD
This is the chopper of choice for custom applications or for operations converting substantial quantities of linear material. Prepared for an abusive environment, this unit has a strong 1/2” plate steel housing. The Model 517 XHD also has a magnetic starter to protect workers from an unexpected restart after loss of power. The air activated feedworks is controlled with a footswitch for operator safety and other safety options are available.

HOW IT WORKS
Just introduce the material into the infeed funnel. The feedworks (pinch rolls) will then grab the material and pull it into the rotating knife path. The feedworks will continue to pull at a rate of 90 feet per minute until the material is consumed or the operator releases the air-activated feedworks via the foot switch.
