The comprehensive crusher is a multifunctional industrial equipment specially used for crushing wood materials. It shreds wood, chips, and other wood products of all types and sizes, converting them into smaller particles or chips. Integrated shredders include conveying systems, crushing components, sorting and screening devices, etc. to achieve efficient wood shredding and processing processes.

The Advantages of Comprehensive Crusher

  • High Processing Capacity: These pallet shredders are designed to handle large quantities of materials, making them suitable for industrial-scale operations.
  • Versatility: Comprehensive crushers are equipped with various tools and mechanisms that allow them to process different materials with varying hardness, size, and characteristics.
  • Automatic Separation: Our comprehensive crushers include mechanisms for automatically separating materials, such as magnetic devices for removing metal contaminants like nails and screws.
  • Irregular Output Size: Unlike traditional crushers that produce uniform-sized output, comprehensive crushers might produce irregularly sized pieces. This can be useful in various applications, such as recycling, where the raw materials are repurposed in different ways.
  • Automation and Control: Many modern comprehensive crushers come with advanced automation features and controls, enhancing operational efficiency and safety.

Working Principle of Comprehensive Crusher

The working principle of a comprehensive crusher involves a series of processes that result in the efficient crushing of wood materials. Here’s a general overview of the typical working principle:

Material Feeding

The wood materials, such as old furniture, wooden pallets, large-diameter wood logs, tree roots, and other wood waste, are fed into the wood crusher machine through a feeding mechanism.


The materials enter a crushing chamber of the comprehensive crusher where the main action takes place. The crushing chamber contains rotating blades that are mounted on a rotor. The rotor is driven by a powerful motor.

Impact and Friction

As the rotor spins, the hammers or blades impact the wood materials with force. This impact, along with the high-speed rotation, causes the wood to be fractured, torn, and crushed into smaller pieces.


Due to gravity, the crushed wood particles fall downward and move toward a set of screens located at the bottom of the crushing chamber. These screens have various-sized openings or perforations that allow particles of a certain size to pass through.

Particle Separation

The particles that are smaller than the screen openings pass through and are collected as the desired output. Larger particles remain on the screen surface, where they continue to be subjected to further hammer impacts and grinding.

Magnetic Separation

The comprehensive crusher is equipped with a magnetic drum or magnetic rollers. So these mechanisms can automatically separate any metal contaminants, such as nails or screws, from the crushed wood particles.

Structure of Comprehensive Pallet Shredder

The construction of an integrated shredder usually includes multiple components for efficient shredding and processing of wood-based materials. The following are the main components of the comprehensive pallet shredder.

  • Feeding system: Conveyor belts are used to convey woody material to the crushing chamber.
  • Crushing chamber: The knife roller in the crushing chamber is used to crush woody materials. The knives apply impact and cutting force to the wood material while rotating at high speed.
  • Screening device: The screen is located at the bottom of the crushing chamber and is used to separate broken particles of different sizes.
  • Automatic separation device: The magnetic suction device is used to automatically separate metal impurities from wood particles.
  • Discharge system: The material system is used to discharge the crushed wood particles from the crushing cavity, including the discharge port and the conveyor belt.

What Kind of Raw Materials Can the Comprehensive Crusher Crush?

Comprehensive crusher designed specifically for crushing wood materials can typically handle a variety of raw materials commonly found in the wood processing and recycling industries

  • Wood Logs and Timber: This includes large-diameter wood logs, timber, and lumber that need to be broken down into smaller pieces for further processing.
  • Wooden Pallets: Used or discarded wooden pallets can be crushed to facilitate recycling and repurposing.
  • Wooden Furniture: Old or discarded wooden furniture pieces can be crushed to recover wood for recycling purposes.
  • Wooden Panels and Boards: Wood panels, plywood, and other wooden boards can be processed for recycling or reuse.
  • Wooden Construction Debris: Wood waste generated from construction sites, such as demolished structures or discarded construction materials, can be crushed and processed.

What Is the Price of Comprehensive Crusher?

The cost of a comprehensive wood pallet shredder can vary greatly depending on several factors including manufacturer, model, capacity, features, and market conditions. In addition, different production capacities can also affect the price, and machines with higher production capacity are usually more expensive. In our company, we have machines with output ranging from 8-30 tons for customers to choose from. If you need this machine, please feel free to contact us, and we will contact you as soon as possible.
