LIPA TLE-FL 120 Heavy Duty Forestry Shredder (For 12 – 18 Ton Excavator)


SKU: TLE-FL 120 Category:


With over 40 years of flail mower and mulcher manufacturing experience in partnership with the Willibald company based in Germany, LIPA now manufactures high quality mowers and mulchers in their factory in Italy. LIPA products are well designed and manufactured, using the latest technologies which include laser cutting and robot welders. All LIPA products use high quality materials which stand the test of time, in fact some customers have used the same LIPA mowers for over 20 years, only replacing flail hammers and belts occasionally.

The range of LIPA TLE-FL forestry shredders are designed to fit excavators that weigh between 12 and 18 tons.

This TLE-FL 120 model is designed to shred brush and trees up to around 10″ in diameter, within areas which are often dangerous or difficult with other types of mower. The TLE-FL range of shredders feature heavy duty bearings at both ends of the rotor.

The Lipa TLE-FL 120 shredder weighs 1630 lb. Its has a 44″ cut width and requires 32-38 gallons of oil flow per minute at around 4000 psi. The TLE-FL has 18 flails and 5 heavy duty drive belts from the hydraulic motor down to the flail mower drive pulley. The high torque shredder turns around 340 rpm, to shred brush and trees up to around 10″ in diameter. The inside of the shredder housing is made from a heavy grade steel (hardox) to maximize life.

This TLE-FL 120 will require 3 hydraulic lines for the shredder rotor drive motor (a pressure line, a return line and a low-pressure return, also know as a case drain).

This shredder comes complete with a dedicated hook-up to connect to your excavator, but we prefer to discuss by phone or email ahead of purchase to make sure your excavator model hook-up is available. For example some less common excavator models may require a custom made bracket, especially those with certain quick-hitch style couplers. Please note this shredder does not come with hydraulic hoses, as we don’t know the fittings or lengths required to fit your machine. Also, this shredder does not come with pins to mount to the excavator (you should already have pins to mount buckets on with, so you can use the same pins).

If it says “out of stock” please contact us to see when more will be available, as we plan to have most of the common models in stock, so they may be shipped and available soon.

Always think safety when operating a shredder! Be sure to use the shredder on an excavator with a full cab to protect the operator from flying debris. Always keep spectators at a safe distance and always shut the engine down before working on, or making adjustments to the shredder.
