Durability, reliability and efficiency are the key elements of the award-winning Cyclone Multicrop Shredder. These heavy duty shredders are designed for the most rugged working environments with reduced power consumption, outperforming equivalent-sized flail shredders in every way.
Its cutting head system has 4 blades per rotor for powerful ‘blender-style’ mulching – perfect for shredding crops such as cotton stalks and corn stubble – but with 50% less HP required than a similar-sized flail. The 18ft model only requires a 110HP tractor, less than half the power needed to operate a flail shredder which means 50% fuel savings upfront.
Cutting rotors are spaced 2 ¼ feet apart to ensure any material is mulched and evenly spread with no windrows. The double-chop blade system eliminates the need to carry multiple blade sets for other applications.
The Major Cyclone is suitable for cotton, corn, sorghum and barley. It is ideal for post-harvest shredding to eliminate insect habitats of the corn borer and other pests. The shredder also effectively manages orchard floor vegetation including grass and cover crops on pecan and macadamia nut orchards.
The MAJOR Cyclone is manufactured using high performance Strenx® 700 MC structural steel. This materials’ high strength and consistent properties allows it to take higher payloads and as a result makes the Major Cyclone stronger, lighter, safer and more sustainable. Combined with hot-dip galvanization to EN ISO 1461:2009 specifications, the Cyclone Shredder is guaranteed impact tough.
Hardox® 450 abrasion-resistant steel discs protect the high-grade hardened spring steel blade system while the shredder is working.
The Cyclone incorporates important operational safety features. Thick rubber curtains line the deck at the front and on top of the rear roller. This combined with steel deflectors prevent foreign objects from being flung out from the rotors.
The Cyclone Multicrop Shredder has wings that hydraulically fold up for safe and easy transport between sites.
