Every machine in the Rotochopper line-up has grown directly out of customer input. Within the last few years, as markets for colored landscape mulch, animal bedding, and RAS (recycled asphalt shingles) have grown and diversified, we have received one request more than any other—more mid-sized grinders. Specifically, our customers have asked for the advantages of the B-66, B-66 E (electric-powered), and RG-1 in smaller packages.
We are pleased to fill this request with the new FP-66 horizontal grinder.
Available with 540 to 630 horsepower, the FP-66 features many of the exclusive advantages found in the B-66.
With less horsepower and a lower weight than the B-66, the FP-66 is designed to meet the needs of wood waste and tear-off shingle recycling operations that do not have enough raw material volume for the B-66 or RG-1. For in-the-woods biomass processors, the FP-66's lower weight offers improved maneuverability in tight forestry landings. Mid-sized shingle grinding companies that manually sort tear-off shingles prior to grinding may find that the FP-66’s lower horsepower better matches the output capacity of picking lines than the higher capacity B-66 and RG-1.
The FP-66 joins the MP-2, MC-266, and B-66 in the diesel-powered wood grinder line-up that goes from 275 to 875 horsepower. This wide range of size and horsepower lets us match the machine to your raw material volume and finished product requirements.
The launch of the FP-66 follows closely behind the introduction of the EC-366, the third generation mid-sized electric grinder. An electric-powered grinder with comparable horsepower to the diesel FP-66 will be available soon.
The FP-66 will be on display at Expo Richmond and other events throughout 2012.
