Vermeer LS3600TX low speed shredder

Vermeer Corp., Pella Iowa, unveiled its new LS3600TX low speed shredder. The single-shaft shredder incorporates exclusive innovations that efficiently process contaminated waste streams and help safeguard critical machine components,” Vermeer said.

The LS3600TX is specifically designed to excel at processing various materials, including light construction and demolition waste, wood waste with contaminants and municipal solid waste. It is well-suited for waste facilities and land clearing operations, as well as compost, mulch and biofuel producers, Vermeer said.

“For 30 years, Vermeer has been a leading manufacturer of high speed grinders,” said Jeff Bradley, Vermeer recycling and forestry product manager. “During that time, recycling has become a common practice at public and private waste handling facilities and has become another source of revenue for many organizations. To help our customers optimize their processing capabilities and handle a wider range of incoming materials, we have developed the LS3600TX low speed shredder. This shredder allows companies to process contaminated materials not suited for a tub or horizontal grinder.”

Vermeer said it designed the LS3600TX shredder with a strong focus on maintenance and accessibility. The engine bay of the LS3600TX prioritizes ease of maintenance and serviceability, featuring large access doors, multiple ladder points and a spacious service platform. The design allows for quick and efficient maintenance. Additionally, the LS3600TX is equipped with a hydraulically operated access system that provides full exposure to the rotor, comb and belly conveyor, which further streamlines maintenance procedures. Also, the belly conveyor can be easily removed without detaching the discharge conveyor, minimizing the invasiveness of service operations.

The LS3600TX shredder has a powerful 456-hp CAT Tier 4 Final/Stage V engine. The shredder features a tracked undercarriage, which enables operators to reposition and maneuver it around a job site. It also comes with a full-function remote control, allowing operators to adjust the feed, access machine data and diagnose fault codes from the comfort of the feed loader’s cab or a safe distance from the shredder.

The LS3600TX is equipped with a 10 foot long rotor that features wear-resistant plates for enhanced durability and dual-bolt tips to help maintain clamp load. It utilizes individual bolt-in comb teeth, each with two usable edges, which extends their lifespan. The shredder is built with a fully mechanical driveline designed to optimize horsepower transfer to the rotor. To safeguard the driveline system against unshreddable objects, the LS3600TX includes a reversible mechanical transmission with an external torque limiter that will automatically disengage the drive when maximum torque is reached.

An optional cross band magnet further enhances its capabilities. The magnet effectively reduces steel contaminants from the end material, minimizing contamination in the final product.
