VHZ - Wood shredder

Energy-efficient shredder for a wide variety of wood waste

Do you want to reliably process chipboard, hardwood and solid wood waste, bark or softwood into wood chips and briquette-ready material? Our VHZ series of compact and robust single-shaft shredders has been specifically designed to master these tasks. You’ll benefit from low operating costs thanks to energy-efficient drive technology, and in most usage scenarios, you can feed the collected materials directly to the machine without the need for additional feeding systems. Since the rotor turns particularly slowly, it makes little noise or dust during vertical feeding.
