M-C shredders have a long history of reliable performance.
Solid construction provides years of reliable service. Long known as the heaviest built shredder in the industry, the M-C shredder comes with a lifetime warranty against knife breakage.
Recent improvements to the cover assembly provide farmers easier service access for basic maintenance, resulting in a cleaner and safer operating machine.
Newly Redesigned Cover Assembly
Compact Cover assembly stays in place to house belts. Simple cover removal for easy belt replacement.
NEW! Extended 90-degree structural steel bracket on the edge of the assembly eliminates dirt from entering and plugging up the machine.
Redesigned Shredder Gearbox
Repositioned gear box assembly allow for easy maintenance access.
NEW! Simple plug added to change oil saves time and frustration.
8-5/8” diameter rotor with heavy 5/16” wall thickness is dynamically balanced for many years of smooth, trouble-free service.
Low rotor speed (1074 RPM) means lower horsepower requirements to maintain operating levels. The low power requirement saves fuel!
Heavy duty 1,000 RPM gear box-type housing/body agitates the flow of material through the machine for most efficient and thorough shredding action. Heavy duty gearbox drives the precision balanced rotor through a multi-grove “V” belt drive system on side of machine…one on each end, drives the 20’ models. No center hanger bearings on 15’ models means no skips and fewer moving parts to service and maintain.
Solid steel rotor shaft rides in large 2-3/16” bearings at each end. External lubrication points are conveniently located. Bearings are protected from dirt and foreign material by an anti-wrap seal system.
Heavy duty flat back idler keeps smooth and constant belt tension during start-up, operation and shut down.
Channels welded in top of housing stiffen the body and restrict the flow, creating additional shredding.
Replaceable front cover
Adjustable front cutter bar for clearance between front housing and forward swing of knives create more shredding and protect the front cover from wear and abuse.
Patented quick-change knife hanger assembly is hot formed from special alloy steel and heat treated for superior strength and wear.
Heated Treated Allow Steel Knives are standard, and extra wide to overlap and cut all the material. Knives are bolted to the hangers and are easily replaced or re-sharpened. Hard surface knives are optional.
Shredders “I would definitely recommend M-C products to others because of their quality and reliability. We had our last grain dryer for 30 years and still have our M-C stalk shredder, which is 20 years old. It says something about a product when you can use it year after year with little problem.”
– Thomas K., Wisconsin
M-C Trax “…What led us to buy was the M-C Trax Remote Monitoring, local service available, M-C reputation and sales incentives. My favorite part of the dryer is M-C Trax.”
–Dan R., Iowa
“I absolutely love M-C Trax. I know exactly what is happening at the dryer site whether I am in the seat of my combine or the comfort of my favorite recliner. It takes the worry out of drying corn…”
–Alan S., Iowa
“M-C Trax makes my wife very happy. No more getting up and making trips out to the dryer at 3am. I just look at my cell phone on my nightstand and see that everything is running just fine.”
