The LR520
Your compact and reliable 1-shaft shredding system

The LR520 is the most compact wood shredder in the LR class range. Its modest footprint is less than 1m², meaning that it can even be easily integrated into the smallest of carpenter’s workshops. We have developed the single shaft shredder for wood especially for these small wood working plants. Due to its unique, pusher-free design, the shredder is not only compact in size, but also particularly low maintenance. The ideal machine for wood working plants which produce low waste wood quantities.


Wood shredding made easy
Advantages of the LR520

The pusher-free design of the wood shredder features a pull-in mechanism and therefore very few moving parts. This reduces machine maintenance costs to a minimum. The gear damper cushions strong blows during the shredding process and ensures quiet machine operation. In addition, the wood shredder is equipped with a foreign object detection system and an automatic shut-down function to prevent damage to the shredder cutters. The LR520 is easily able to shred any type of wood, such as waste wood, chipboard and long splinter wood. The homogeneous wood chip quality produced by the shredder is ideal for thermal utilisation or incineration in a wood chip heating system, or for the manufacture of wood briquettes.

A major advantage of the LR520 wood shredder is its energy efficiency. The proven cutting system in the shredder can easily shred residual timber and only requires a drive capacity of
11 kW. If the machine stands idle for more than 3 minutes, it will shut down automatically. This saves energy whilst simultaneously reducing the operating costs of your wood working plant.
