Self propelled Compost Turner


Self propelled compost turner machine can be used to compost various organic raw materials, working well not only in wide outdoor open area, but in workshop and greenhouse.


Introduction of Self-propelled Compost Turner

With the design of 4 wheels to run, our self propelled compost turner can be driven and handled by one person for free moving forward, reversing and turning, which is often used before organic fertilizer crusher. As is well known, the advanced fermentation technology refers to microorganism aerobic fermentation, and our self moving compost turner is designed according to the principle of aerobic fermentation, providing enough space for zymogeneous bacteria to play its role. Therefore, this machine is more suitable for technological requirement of microbial fermentation materials, and it can effectively mix sticky materials, microbial preparation and straw powder evenly. In addition, this compost turner can be used to compost various organic raw materials, working well not only in wide outdoor open area, but also in workshop and greenhouse.

Working Principle of Self-propelled Compost Turner

Adopting four wheels design, the whole machine rides on the base of elongated shape fertilizer banked up in advance, and its rotary cutter shaft (hanged under the rack implements) implements the turning and mixing, bulking, moving and stacking, then shaping new bar-type stacks after compost turner machine passing. Meanwhile, the design of machine conforms to the function mechanism of aerobic fermentation, creating better aerobic environment for materials fermenting.

Feature of Self-propelled Compost Turner

  • With proper overall structure and advanced technology, our pile-turning machine has reliable performance with large turning capacity, high productivityand strong adaptability to site, easy to control and convenient to maintain.
  • The machine can turn over 400-500 cubic compost per hour, converted into 160-200 ton finished fertilizer, all of which only takes about fifteen minutes and needs low energy consumption, making finished fertilizer with obvious price predominance.
  • Using this machine can make loose materials warming in 24h – 48h, deodorizing within three days, becoming fertilizer in 7-10 days, faster than the speed of deep groove fermentation, and effectively preventing the generation of noxious gas and foul gas.
  • Furthermore, this pile-turning machine also has crushing function, greatly saving the cost of time and labor and significantly improving production efficiency and product quality of organic fertilizer plant.

Operating Requirements of Self-propelled Compost Turner

  1. The place for turning piles should be flat and firm, and there should be no concave-convex area higher 50mm in the operation zone.
  2. Bar-shape pile turning: width should be within 2000mm and height should be less than 800mm, stacking in straight line and bar shape.
  3. There should be enough space at both ends of material piles for machine turning around, and the interval between material piles should be over one meter.
  4. This machine is self-propelled compost turner, only used to compost material piles for organic fertilizer, which cannot be used as vehicle for walking and loading.
