This unit offers quality features: a fast efficient feed rate; an air cylinder-actuated feedworks with safety-detent foot switch; and heavy steel plate construction. The 5503 Series line of Choppers is designed to accommodate higher volume applications for years without serious maintenance.

How it Works

Just introduce the material (linear scrap) into the infeed funnel. The feedworks (pinch rolls) will then grab the material and pull it into the rotating knife path. The feedworks will continue to pull at a rate of 90 fpm until the material is consumed or the operator releases the feedworks via the footswitch.
