Rotary Shredder

Product image major cyclone rotary cutter


The MAJOR Cyclone Rotary Shredder is an exceptionally versatile machine that does the work of conventional batwing mowers and flail shredders. Designed for heavy duty use, the Cyclone Shredder is ideal for pastures, brush, set aside acres and row crop fields. These machines are equally at home in forestry margin management and maintaining CRP land.

Its cutting head system has 4 blades per rotor for powerful ‘blender-style’ mulching – perfect for shredding crops such as cotton stalks and wheat 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 multicrop flail shredder which means 50% fuel savings upfront. Cutting rotors are spaced 2 ¼ feet apart, doubling the number of heads found in batwing mowers to ensure any material is cut cleanly and evenly spread with no windrows. The double-chop blade system eliminates the need to carry multiple blade sets for crop shredding or other applications.
