TOUR THE EUROPE: PART II
The Axtor 4510 goes on a journey
New-generation Axtor 4510 and 6210 machines have been going out to customers since the autumn of last year. Meanwhile, one of the Axtor 4510 travels through Europe and shows what it is capable of so that our customers have the opportunity to convince themselves of the advantages before buying.
The Axtor is a high-speed wood shredder / chipper whose first generation was already very well received by customers thanks to its high versatility. The new generation has been available since the end of last year, and combines many proven features with new ones. One important change is the compact design, which is noticeably different from the predecessor model, along with the attractive value for money.
An attractive package
Whether composter, biomass or waste wood processor, specialist or generalist service provider, every user can benefit from the advantages of the new Axtor. One welcome improvement is the new lower loading edge, which makes loading easy and improves visibility. The aggressive intake gives good material feed to the heart of the machine, the shredding or chipping drum. This drum is the basis for the versatility of the Axtor. Its fast blade change lets users configure it for the intended use, to get high throughput and optimum output quality in all applications. The one-piece adjustable speed conveyor can go up to a discharge height of 4.5 m, for simple and direct loading onto trucks.
Well thought out, well executed
Komptech put customer needs first in upgrading the Axtor series. For example, outstanding maintenance access is provided by the hydraulically raised engine cover and the roomy service platform with integrated folded ladder. Other highly practical features are the massive sectional steel belt intake system, the continuous discharge conveyor and the hydraulic tilt hopper. Avoidance of leakage during material transport, tough components and clever details that make work go smoothly onsite – it all adds up to more productivity.
Chipping and shredding – flexible and fast conversion
Conversion from shredder to chipper is fast and simple. In about half a day, the free-swinging blades can be replaced with fixed mountings and precision chipping blades or tough shredder blades. Conversion with fixed teeth is even faster – it takes just three hours or less to switch from shredder to chipper blades. If two people do the work, it naturally goes twice as fast.
New chipping drum option
A special chipping drum makes the Axtor a full-blooded chipper. Massive chipping blades, wide adjustment range of the advance, and a full selection of screen baskets leave nothing to be desired in terms of the grain and quality of the chips.
