BE shredders - easy to pull and economical

The SAUERBURGER BE straw chopper is specially designed for economical use in stubble fields for chopping very large quantities of maize straw, cotton and sorghum. The high intake opening, the extremely large rotor diameter and the special shape of the housing give the machine the best prerequisites for handling and distributing high throughput in just one pass. The position of the discharge flap and the straw deflectors enable the straw swath to be distributed evenly over the entire width of the area.

By means of a quick-release fastener on the discharge flap, the roof of the machine can be closed in just a few steps. The shredder is therefore also suitable for shredding crop residues and catch crops or for maintaining fallow land.

Inside the housing there are two counter blades that the straw has to pass through. Due to their small distance from the blade, they ensure optimum shredding of the chopped material, which can then be easily incorporated with the cultivator.

It thus promotes rapid decomposition and humus formation, effectively helping to improve soil structure and control pests that are in the plants.

The depth control of the machine is adjusted via two large impellers. They ensure perfect scanning of the ground surface and provide an even cutting height.

The machine is driven by a very robust angular gear and a large-dimensioned V-belt drive (on both sides of the BE 3500 D and BE 4500 D). The dynamically balanced rotor of the machine runs extremely smoothly and thus guarantees a long service life of the complete unit. To reduce wear on stony ground, as well as for high area outputs, an additional baffle plate is recommended. It forms a buffer between the rotor and the housing and can be easily replaced after wear.
