City Hall Acquires New Scorpion 500 Branch Crusher
City Hall Acquires New Branch Crusher
A few days ago, the municipality of Paraná received another important piece of equipment that will guarantee more efficiency in the services of crushing branches resulting from tree pruning. The city hall already had smaller equipment, which was used by the Department of Agriculture and Environmental Policy, mainly at the Ecoponto. This equipment will now be destined for the Department of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, to be used to remove branches from the trees that are inside a leisure park.
It ensures more efficiency, as it has the power and performance of a medium-sized forest chipper, but with the locomotion capacity of a branch shredder. It is capable of crushing/chipping trees up to 50 centimeters in diameter. It has a diesel engine, an electronic intelligent automatic feeding system, safety equipment and, among others, a hydraulic crane to feed the crusher.
The secretary of Agriculture and Environmental Policy, praised the understanding of the mayor and the vice in the acquisition of the machine, in addition to the employees of the secretariat and the environmental engineer, who spared no effort to make the equipment a reality for the municipality. “The new branch shredder will bring numerous benefits. Initially, it will be used at Ecoponto. Later, it will be adapted to a truck and will be used by the tree pruning team at headquarters and in the districts. This will ensure savings in the transportation of branches”, said the Mayor.
The equipment has already been used for testing. Employees are also being trained and are adapting to the new crusher.
