The MAJOR Cyclone 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 30% 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.

Watch the 18ft Cyclone shredding cotton stalk in Mississippi:

High-performance Strenx™ 700 MC structural steel makes these shredders stronger yet lighter than comparable-sized machines.  Hardox® 450 abrasion-resistant steel discs protect the blade system while the shredder is working. Combined with hot-dip galvanization to EN ISO 1461:2009 specifications, the Cyclone Shredder is guaranteed impact tough.
