A shredder of this calibre on caterpillar tracks is completely unique. The Eliet Cross Country reaches the highest levels, no spot is safe from this high-performance machine. Furthermore, the machine is highly manoeuvrable. You can operate each track separately, using a pivot-spin rather than a stop-and-go. The Eliet Cross Country also feels at home in rough terrain, including road/track sides and vineyards.
ELIET CHOPPING PRINCIPLE™: LET THE WOOD DO THE WORK
ELIET has developed and patented its own chipping system called the 'Chopping Principle™'. The blades cut with the wood grain like little hatchets. The garden waste is rendered into small chips in a cycle of chopping and cutting. As a result, the chips will compost quickly.
The big advantage of this ELIET Chopping principle™ is just how little power is needed to chop the wood into chips. It's easier to cut wood with the grain, which is why the Chopping principle ™ does it this way. As a result ELIET shredders get better performances from limited engine power. Which means lower consumption and less noise. It also means that we can build ELIET shredders that are more compact and less heavy.
The blade system makes thousands of cuts per minute, also cutting up leafy and wet garden waste without a problem. That means that ELIET shredders can be used on just about any job.
ADVANTAGES OF THE ELIET CHOPPING PRINCIPLE™
- compact construction
- low consumption
- reduced noise emission
- low maintenance
- long service life
- suited for all kinds of green waste material
- results into fast composting, uniform chips
Blow Chute - The Super Prof blow chute is a fine example of engineering. Its shape prevents turbulence and the design of the curve was based on the optimal trajectory of the fl ying chips. As a result the machine
has phenomenal propelling capacity. The choice for synthetics as the material for the blow chute was a very deliberate one: it is seamless, corrosion resistant, perfectly smooth and sound absorbing. Its low air resistance makes the chute less inclined to clog. The blow chute has a discharge height of 2 m - 8ft and a rotation span of 300°.
Collapsible Blow Chute - The blow-out level of the Super Prof is at 2 m - 8 ft. An important asset, as it allows you to blow the chips from any possible location to where you want to deposit them. To make sure that the height does not pose a problem for transport, the chute can be collapsed onto the machine and clamped in place. Its height is thus reduced to 1.45 m – 4.75 ft.
Caterpillar Tracks - Caterpillar tracks prove highly effective on hilly countryside with plenty of slopes. Despite the impressive set of tracks, the weight of the Cross Country is still quite limited. As a result the ground pressure is very low , which means that the caterpillar tracked shredder can also be used on a lawn without any risk of doing damage. Operating the track drive is just as simple as the wheel based Super Prof. The only difference is that on the Cross Country, two handles on the handlebar allow for individual control of each track separate caterpillar. Making the track rotate in opposite directions will turn the machine around its axis. This high manoeuvrability offers the opportunity to get into hard-to-reach places and simultaneously yields enormous time savings.
Infeed Opening - The feed opening was made wide on purpose, but without compromising on the machine’s compactness. The feed hopper has become considerably larger mainly at the top. This makes for a larger feeding plateau, allowing the operator to place the green waste quicker and have both hands free to manipulate the waste. The special shape of the hopper walls pushes the waste towards the 45 cm wide central bottom of the hopper. This flat bottom does not get any narrower towards the feed roller. The feed roller can lift up to 13 cm, which creates a huge infeed opening. This feature is highly appreciated by professionals when they are feeding branches with many twigs or voluminous cutting waste.
Intelligent Machine - All the features of the machine are grouped in a well-organised dashboard at the front of the machine. The large LCD screen stands out at the centre between the ignition key and the choke valve. It is via the LCD screen that the Super Prof communicates with its operator. Besides showing useful machine features, it tells the operator when maintenance is due. Below the display is the machine’s most essential button: the ‘ACTION’ button. This electronic control of the electromagnetic coupling engages the blade system and the Axelero™ and ensures that the feed roller can be activated. At one push of the button, the shredder beast comes to life.
Easy Feeding - To ensure simple and intuitive control, the operating mechanism of the feed roller was separated clearly and visually. Push buttons within reach allow for selecting feed/reverse feed. Integrated LED lights in the button highlight the selection. One push of the emergency stop handle or one of the buttons will neutralise the selection and immediately stop the feed roller. This ultimate operating simplicity is a guaranteed time saver.
Maximium Flexibility and Time Savings - The machine shreds wood as well as large volumes of green waste. The material does not have to be sorted beforehand. You drive the self-driving shredder to the location where you want to perform the shredding, which means that you don't lose any time supplying or removing materials.
Minimum Management Costs - The machine was developed from a low-maintenance perspective, so that checks and maintenance don't become time-consuming and dreaded activities. The Super Prof's internal management system helps to comply with the schedule. Regular maintenance keeps high repair costs at bay. The blade system is insensitive to foreign objects and its maintenance is simple and self-manageable. Only a limited number of parts are subject to wear and in addition, the machine has a high resale value as a second-hand item, which is an added bonus for its ROI.
Maximum Yield - The Eliet patented shredding system uses the weakness of the wood and therefore requires little motor capacity. The compact machine with its broad feeder also allows shredding branches of up to 13 cm thick as bundles of voluminous waste. Cutting waste does not have to be sorted prior to shredding. Branches don't require cutting before processing them in the machine. It all makes for gigantic time-savings.
The ABM system ensures that the engine always operates at maximum capacity and that fuel consumption never exceeds 3 litres per hour. The optional ECOEYE™ system lowers fuel consumption in passive operation mode, yielding another considerable saving. And finally the machine lowers your company's ecological footprint.
