Terex Ecotec launch the Powerful TBG 630 High Speed Shredder


An industry leader in the design and manufacture of wood processing, biomass and recycling equipment, Terex Ecotec have achieved significant growth and development in recent years and today offer a comprehensive product portfolio of mobile shredding, screening, handling and composting equipment. 

Powerful & Versatile

Continually striving to introduce new technology to the market and as part of their new product development strategy Terex Ecotec are delighted to launch the TBG 630 High Speed Shredder.  This latest offering has been months in design and development, engineered specifically with large scale biomass and green waste processors in mind.  Powerful and flexible in a wide range of applications, class leading production combined with excellent fuel consumption will provide low operating costs to operators.  Recently unveiled at IFAT, the world’s leading trade fair for environmental technologies it generated unprecedented levels of interest as visitors had the opportunity to see it up close and in action during the live VDMA working demonstrations where it was seen processing green waste. 

Terex Ecotec’s Business Line Director, Tony Devlin, said “IFAT truly was the ideal platform to showcase our innovative new TBG 630 High Speed Shredder, demonstrating to the audience of industry professionals Terex Ecotec’s drive and commitment to shape the waste and recycling industries for years to come.  The addition of the TBG 630 High Speed Shredder will further enhance an already significant portfolio of products offered by Terex Ecotec, meeting both market and customers’ needs.  The range of machines available provides efficient production, low operational costs and ease of maintenance so end users are sure to find the correct machine for their applications.”

The TBG 630 has also received rigorous testing in the field, processing a range of different applications both in the UK and Europe.  Commenting on its performance Steven Aiken, Engineering Manager for Terex Ecotec said “We are impressed by the consistent performance and throughput of the TBG 630, 661HP swinging hammer high speed shredder.  This is a high volume machine designed to produce a high quality product at unrivalled production rates.  Extremely versatile it can be used for the fine shredding of a wide variety of materials from green waste to pallets and waste wood.  Unlike conventional high speed shredders the layout is different greatly improving service access and ease of loading.  We believe we have created a machine that is right for our dealers’ markets, giving the end user exactly what they require.”

Intelligent Shredding

Powered by a 661HP Scania V8 DC16 engine, the tracked TBG 630 is the ultimate processing machine and has been designed to give operators unrivalled performance, ease of maintenance and superb fuel efficiency.  The open fronted feeder enables the machine to be fed quickly and easily from the rear, using six rows of heavy duty drag chains.  Due to an intelligent, independent hydrostatic drag chain and feed wheel system, the machine has the ability to vary infeed speed depending on the engine load and rotor RPM.  The feeder can also be stopped, started and reversed from the push of a button on the remote.  A novel feature is the feed wheel lift/downward assist, which sees the feed wheel rise over material whilst applying a downward force to break up and push material into the rotor. 

Robust Rotor

At the heart of the machine is the 1,100mm diameter x 1,7500mm wide swinging hammer rotor.  This robust, direct drive rotor rotates at 1000rpm and incorporates 36 up-swinging hammers.  A wide selection of hammer designs and customisable, interchangeable screens are available which ensure end product material specification is met.  Metal contaminants are always a concern when using a high speed machine; the TBG 630 has a clever screen kickback system.  Should unshreddable material enter the shredder, a pressure sensor will automatically release the screen allowing the material to quickly pass through reducing the risk of accidental damage.  The screen can also be released by the operator using the remote control.  The unique machine layout and maintenance catwalks offer operators unrestricted access to both sides of the engine making servicing a simple task.  Industry leading conveyor discharge height of 5.1m maximises stockpile capacity and allows loader operators to easily remove processed material.  An optional over-band magnet to remove any ferrous metal from the waste stream is also available.  The TBG 630 excels in all high speed applications and is particularly well suited to waste wood processing and green waste shredding.


The TBG 630 can also be fitted with the new T-Link telemetry system.  T-Link is a remote monitoring, fleet management system that combines the machines’ inbuilt CANbus control system with satellite positioning and telematics software.  Available online anywhere and at any time, T-Link provides instant access to key data including comprehensive information on GPS machine location, start and stop times, fuel consumption, operating hours, maintenance status and much more.  Analysing this data can improve machine operation, increase uptime and allow in-depth reporting and fleet management.

World Class Manufacturing & Distribution

This latest high speed shredder will be manufactured at Terex Ecotec’s state of the art production facilities at Farlough Road, Dungannon in Northern Ireland where the existing Ecotec product range is currently made.  The TBG 630 High Speed Shredder will be available to purchase via Terex Ecotec’s world class dealer distribution network that provide the sales and aftermarket service demanded for in the market place.   Sales Director for Terex Ecotec, Conor Hegarty commented, “The reaction received to the highly versatile TBG 630 from our dealer distribution network has been fantastic, with numerous orders already secured.  Such is the demand for the machine a healthy waiting list currently exists.  Having had the opportunity to see first-hand the machines’ capabilities they fully appreciate the benefits it will bring to businesses.”

The addition of the TBG 630 confirms Terex Ecotec’s passion and commitment for new product development and positions them at the forefront of the recycling equipment market.
