Mobile Mulch Hopper Feeders
The Astec mobile mulch hopper feeder is designed to stockpile materials like mulch, biomass, woodchips, shredded wood, wood pellets, green waste, palm kernel shells and other material.
The feeder can be directly fed by wheel loaders, grab cranes, wood grinders, shredders, screens or trommels. With excellent mobility on-site, the mulch hopper feeder will eliminate double-handling of material.
Wood Waste RecyclingPeterson horizontal grinders are ideal for wood waste recycling applications. Because of the limited options to reuse building materials or wood recycled from demolition efforts, reduced wood waste can be recycled to make biomass, bedding material, mulch, or compost.Learn More
