Railroad Ties

Railroad ties are known for their high BTU value and steel contamination that can cause excessive downtime for equipment not designed for the challenge.

Slow-Speed Shredders

Engineered for steady uptime and simplified maintenance, Rotochopper high-torque shredders effortlessly process railroad ties with the tie plates still attached. Tie plates and even larger pieces of steel pose no problems. Contaminated wood waste goes into the shredder, emerging ready for ferrous metal removal and final sizing by a high-speed grinder.
