M8L Series of Crumbler® Machines

Rotary shear system for lab and research use

Our M8L series of Crumbler® machines are ideally suited for research and lab use. They have a small footprint but are strong enough to handle a wide range of materials including wood chips, switchgrass, bamboo, sage, hemp, agave, and more. The machine is capable of processing up to 1/2 green tons* per hour of your raw feedstocks into precision particles. 

We offer processing heads in a variety of cutter widths for your M8L machine. Processing heads are easy to swap, giving you the ability to produce the full range of output particles your project needs.

Key features:

  • Processes both high and low moisture feedstocks (no pre-drying required)
  • Produces highly uniform particles to increase conversion efficiencies
  • Smooth, quiet operation
  • 8″ wide infeed capacity
  • Small footprint – only 44″W X 34″D X 60″H
  • Standard power – 460VAC 3ph (220VAC 1ph and 110VAC 1ph available)
  • Low energy consumption
  • Collection bin included

Options: 

  • Choose from 1.5hp, 3ph, or 5ph

Accessories: 

* Throughput estimates based on ideal feedstocks and a skilled operator. State throughput is for green wood chips into 1/4″ feedstock particles. Throughput is inversely proportional to comminution ratio and final particle size.

Dust control may be needed depending on product moisture content and processing conditions.
