PM 1200 Vertical Bale Shaver

image22

If you are using peat moss or pre-mix substrate, the PM1200 Bale Shaver will produce a consistent texture and flow throughout the entire bale. Just place the palletized bale inside the machine, close the doors, and press start. The elevator feeds the bale into the horizontal scraper that takes off thin layers of the peat or pre-mix substrate. This is undoubtedly the best process for compressed bale yield with the ability to control moisture content and product integrity.   

 Specifications:

  • Maximum bale size 55" W x 52-3/4" D x 113" H
  • 230 VAC, single or 3 phase
  • Processing speed: 4 to 5, 110 cubic ft. bales per hour
  • Outside dimension: 66" W x 77" D x 135" H
  • Weight: 3,150 lbs.

Features:

  • Bulk material low level sensor
  • Auto water application or no water
  • Touch screen control panel
  • Variable speed motors for precise control
  • Enclosed design creates less dust

PM 1210 Horizontal Bale Shaver

image23

Whether it's peat or pre-mix, the PM1210 Horizontal Bale Shaver delivers consistent media texture and flow from the top of the bale to the bottom. The palatalized bale is placed on the platform, lifting up and tilting into the steel chain flight that acts as a harrow to evenly extract the peat or pre-mix, layer by layer. Improved processing maximizes compressed bale yield and moisture content consistency.  

Specifications:

  • Maximum bale size 55" W x 52-3/4" D x 113" H
  • 230 vac, single or 3 phase
  • Processing speed: 4 to 5, 110 cubic ft. bales per hour
  • Outside dimension: 88" W x 132" D x 106" H
  • Weight: 5,500

3.8 cu yrd Bale Shaver Peat Fluffer

image24

The Peat Fluffer is ideal for decompressing or "fluffing" 3.8 cubic bales of compressed peat or pre-mix media. The fluffer's rotating tines uniformly break up chunks of peat as they pass from the loading area to the discharge at the top of the incline. The optional watering bar enables the desired amount of moisture to be added and helps to maximize the yield of the bale. Optional adjustable caster wheels allow the fluffer to be easily moved to service multiple filling machines. Consistent media, increased compressed bale  yield, and labor efficiency combine to make the peat fluffer a valuable tool for the grower who uses 3.8 cubic foot bales. 

Specifications:

  • 10ft x 14in cleated incline conv.
  • 220 vac, single or 3 phase
  • Bale handling shelf

Options:

  • Custom conveyor lengths
