Komptech Crambo: A wood waste shredder

Nothing shreds like a Komptech Crambo

Crambo: Wood Waste Shredder

This versatile wood waste shredder is one preferred by those serious about sustainability and is a vital tool in combating the ever growing waste epidemic. Whether it’s stumps, food waste, green waste, C&D, or shingles, the dual shaft embodied by this brilliant piece of machinery is world class to say the least.

Komptech Crambo is a dynamic wood waste shredder that can handle most any forms of waste and materials thrown at it.  Komptech Crambo shredders are widely used in disaster clean -up, railroad tie recycling, asphalt shingle recycling as well as composting.

Crambo Efficiency

With nearly 90% of Iowa dedicated to farming, the need for portable shredders  is imperative to keeping processes efficient and sustainable. Kevin Yanik wrote an article published by PP&E reiterating the importance that Komptech America’s Crambo has on the region. He had the opportunity to talk with Wylie about J. Petticord’s fleet of separation equipment discussing how efficient the Crambo works and how this efficiency translates into profitability. “We know what these guys are looking for,” he says. “They need us to get in, get the site cleared and get the heck out of there. Clearing 20 acres of trees with a chipper isn’t a good option. We’ve got large excavators, dozers and our big grinding equipment.”

The company’s Crambo 6000 has been pretty involved lately in those types of jobs, too. “That’s worked really well on some housing developments we’ve done,” Wylie says. “We’ll clear two to five acres of trees, and then we have an old farm-stead where we’ll feed the trees through the Crambo and shred the house through the Crambo, pulling the steel out of it.” Komptech Americas and the Crambo allow J. Petticord to save up to 10 trailer loads which is imperative in such a fast paced industry.
