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-FS forestry shredders are designed to fit large mini excavators, which ideally weigh between 6 and 8 tons (with adequate auxiliary hydraulic flow).

This TLE-FS 70 shredder is designed to shred brush and small trees, up to around 6″ in diameter if the operator takes care (see product videos below). These shredders are ideal for working within areas which are often too dangerous or difficult with other types of mower. They feature heavy duty bearings at both ends of the rotor, in addition to a hydraulically adjustable front deflector to help with shredding larger material.

The Lipa TLE-FS 70 weighs 930 lb, so this is a heavy-duty machine. It has a 28″ cut width and requires 14-16 gallons of auxiliary flow per minute at 3200-3600 psi. The TLE-FS 70 features 30 fixed hammers and 3 heavy duty drive belts from the hydraulic piston motor, down to the flail mower drive pulley with 3 heavy duty V belts. The high torque shredder turns around 370 rpm. The inside of the shredder housing is made from a heavy grade steel (hardox) to maximize life.

This TLE-FS 70 will require 3 hydraulic lines for the shredder rotor drive motor (a pressure line, a return line and a low-pressure case drain to protect the motor when its stopped). To best operate the adjustable front shield, a 2nd remote is ideal, but if this is not available an optional electric solenoid valve block is available from LIPA – to allow the raising and lowering of the front shield with a switch in the cab (it takes its oil flow from the motor).
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.
