Franklin Miller Inc. has been providing reduction technology, such as shredders and wastewater treatment systems, for more than 100 years. With three generations worth of experience, the newest technology from the company comes in the form of the TASKMASTER XL. The pallet shredder effectively can shred pallets in their entirety, nails included, which reduces bulk volume, the company notes. It comes with stand, hopper and automatic reversing controls. The streamlined design features a directed coupled gear drive, making it simple to operate, the company says. This shredder has no drive belts, so there is no need for re-tension, it adds. The enclosed hopper design automatically directs the pallet into the cutting chamber, it notes. Auxiliary discharge conveyors are among the optional equipment to convey the output to a waste container, as well as an infeed conveyor for a fully automated system.
