The hammers are stationary, fixed to the blade holders via bolts, all in a square drum shape spinning on two ductile iron bearing supports, the sides are ductile iron with 12 gauge high quality steel plates on the front and back.

 

It took almost two years to buy it.

That is a heavy grinder. Sounds like it is well built.

I was thinking of your grinder yesterday when I was trying to mulch up some leaves , and garden waste with my MTD chipper shreader the kind that is sold to homeowners . With the grate on it just plugged up and without it the leaves didn't look any different coming lol . Also the opening is small so you have to push just about everything in with a stick . I wanted to run more through so it composts better but gave up . Can't wait to see yours in action

For compost, a bar type grate is needed along with sand or peat moss or dry leaves. Remove the screen, it is useless for we compost or soil. Mixing with leaves helps with those little shredders.

 

I have an idea that may help, more on that later.

 

I know, my Super Tomahawk is like that also, you spend more time trying to shove the material into the shredder then it does shredding it.

An idea if anyone wants to try for shredding, mulching :

 

Two older modified 21 inch Snapper mow decks from the 80's, commercial type with the flare to the inside bolted together mounted to a stand upright. The decks are Hi-Vac snail shell design which would lend itself well to this and of 12 gauge high quality steel, way better then the garbage on the market now. Most older horizontal Briggs or Tech engines have the pto end mounting holes so it can be mounted to the deck. Use the Snapper blade holder and key on the Snapper Hi-Vac blade with mulcher wings or the ninja blades, heck !, custom shredder blades can be made up with this.

 

One end of the deck will be the intake pointed up, the other end will be outlet pointed to the side.

 

Disclaimer : If you improperly build and use this and end up injured or damaging the machine, the fault is no one but your own.
