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-FP forestry shredders are designed to fit larger excavators, ideally those which weigh between around 20 and 30 tons.
This TLE-FP 150 model is designed to shred brush and larger trees (hard woods 8-10″ or more, soft woods 18″ or more) in areas which are often dangerous or difficult with other types of mower. The TLE-FP range of shredders feature heavy duty bearings at both ends of the rotor.
The Lipa TLE-FP 150 shredder weighs 2750 lb. It has a 61″ cut width, an overall width of 74″, and it requires ideally 40-50 gallons of flow per minute at ideally around 4000 psi. IMPORTANT NOTE: If the auxiliary flow is greater than 50 gpm then the flow will need to be reduced/diverted on the excavator.
The TLE-FM has 30 hammers and 4 heavy duty drive belts from the hydraulic motor down to the flail mower drive pulley. The high torque shredder turns around 2000 rpm and the inside of the shredder housing is made from heavy hardox steel for good wear resistance and long life..
This TLE-FP 150 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 hook-up is available. For example some less common excavator models may require a custom made mounting 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 an approved forestry package 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.
