Round & Square Agricultural Bales

Available with diesel or electric power, Rotochopper horizontal grinders offer many advantages over tub grinders for processing bales, including superior single-pass particle size control. The horizontal infeed system of a Rotochopper grinder maintains a positive, continuous flow into the grinding chamber. By contrast, tub grinders are at the mercy of gravity, causing fluctuations in production and efficiency with varying bale density.
