Shredder Sicma, versatile machines for delicate processes

October - November 2016 | Back

At EIMA International, Sicma from Miglianico (Chieti) is launching two new shredders. The TSN-Q model, available in fixed medium heavy and medium heavy movable with Y blades, smooth or toothed hammers, is a machine suitable for orchards, hazelnut groves, and vineyards, which comes with an innovative rounded side to work flush with the body. Thanks to this solution - explains the Abruzzo company in a technical note - not only can we avoid friction problems, but we can also prevent possible impacts along the shredder side. Furthermore, the particular bevel on the right side (the one that works under the plant) was studied expressly to avoid damaging the shrubs and any low tresses, and to facilitate the harvesting and shredding operations. Compatible with tractors from 35 to 70 Hp, the TSN-Q provides optional equipment such as the inter-row disc with spring return or probe return. The other new product from Sicma is the SL-Q shredder, a model that is aligned in essential features with the TSN-Q, but which differs from it in particular for the power requirement from the tractor, between 25 and 45 horsepower, lower compared to that of its big brother. The SL-Q is a working tool designed to give the operator maximum possible agility, and is available in a “fixed-light version” (dual position) and “movable-light” version with blades, or smooth or serrated hammers. Among the standard fittings for the SL-Q series shredder, the Abruzzo company has included a counter-blade system within the cutting chamber.
