Horizontal recycler with dry coloring system turns low-grade organic materials, including scrap wood and logs, into finished decorative mulch in a single pass. Grinder features upturning rotor, 3-stage fragmentation, and multiple interchangeable grates. Hydraulic lift raises 5,000-lb., full-width hopper for operation, then lowers it for transporting and refilling. Precise hydraulic metering of colorant ensures uniformly colorized mulch that dries in as little as 10 mins. Environmentally friendly dry-coloring process minimizes runoff. System is self-contained and needs no external power. Uses external connection with garden hose and normal tap-pressure.
