REACH Inc. has acquired and installed a brand new Pallet Grinder for our wood mill facility. This new pallet grinder is able to “eat” thoroughly and completely grind whole or partial pallets. This will then turn them into wood chips in a single pass. while utilizing several powerful magnets to pull nails and other metallic objects from the material. Employing the pallet grinder into our workflow, REACH can decrease the amount of time it takes to dismantle old broken pallets and other wood with nails.
Previously REACH would manually tear apart pallets and pull nails from the lumber, often needing to cut around hard to remove nails. Which then have to be disposed of. The previous hog was not equipped to handle nails. Requiring a lot of time, resources, and labor where the facility could have used the best.
With this new machine, we will be able to recycle old pallets and other lumber materials and effectively recycle or repurpose them for other uses. With the number of phone calls, we have received concerning old or broken pallets from the community. There is a need for the cleaning up and removal of these pallets. Our new pallet grinder will soon have a pallet buffet.
