Agricultural tyre shear

The Gradeall Agricultural Tyre Shear is a specialised piece of equipment tailored to address the unique challenges posed by recycling large agricultural tyres. Here’s a closer look at its functionality and significance in recycling processes:

Dealing with Agricultural Tyres

  • Size and Weight Challenges: Agricultural tyres are notably larger and heavier compared to standard passenger car tyres. This size and weight make them particularly challenging to handle, store, and transport for recycling purposes.
  • High Air Volume: Despite their bulk, a significant portion of their volume – up to 90% – is air, similar to passenger car tyres. This characteristic poses a unique challenge: although they occupy a large space, the actual material available for recycling is less than it appears.

Role of the Gradeall Agricultural Tyre Shear

  • Efficient Size Reduction: The primary function of the Agricultural Tyre Shear is to reduce the size of these large tyres. By cutting them into smaller, more manageable pieces, the shear makes it easier to process and transport these tyres for recycling.
  • Facilitating Recycling Process: Large agricultural tyres, due to their size and composition, are difficult to process in standard recycling machinery. The tyre shear enables these tyres to be reduced to a size that is compatible with regular recycling processes.
  • Overcoming Disposal Challenges: Given their size and the amount of space they occupy, disposing of agricultural tyres in landfills is impractical and environmentally unsound. The tyre shear helps in diverting these tyres from landfills, aligning with environmental sustainability goals.

The Gradeall Agricultural Tyre Shear plays a critical role in the recycling of large agricultural tyres. It effectively addresses the primary challenge of size and bulk, converting these cumbersome tyres into smaller, manageable segments. This not only eases the recycling process but also contributes to more environmentally friendly disposal methods, ensuring that these large tyres are recycled efficiently and effectively, rather than ending up in landfills.

  1. Tailored Solutions

Gradeall isn’t just about selling standard waste management equipment; they really focus on working together with private companies to create waste management systems that fit exactly what each company needs.

What’s really good about this approach is that it means businesses get waste management solutions that are just right for them. This leads to handling waste more effectively, without wasting resources. For example, if a company has a lot of a certain type of waste, Gradeall can make a machine that deals with that waste really well. This custom approach helps businesses not just deal with their waste better but also be more efficient and eco-friendly. In short, Gradeall’s customised solutions are all about making sure that businesses get the most out of their waste management systems, tailored specifically to their unique requirements.
