Pallet Grinding Simplified

Our "Perfect In One Pass" grinding technology converts pallet scrap to premium products with remarkable efficiency and operational simplicity. Rotochopper electric grinders offer unmatched efficiency and uptime for pallet facilities with 3-phase power. Our diesel grinders offer the same precision grinding, plus the added mobility of wheels or tracks for convenient portability.

Fine Grinding Solutions

Rotochopper multi-stage systems can even convert pallets to animal bedding or short fiber fuels in one smooth pass. A Rotochopper multi-stage grinding system combines a grinder with an in-line hammermill. The grinder reduces whole pallets and crates to coarse fiber.Magnetic metal removal systems separate nails and other steel as the coarse fiber flows to the hammermill. The hammermill then effortlessly refines the fiber to final specifications.
