Stone Protection

Variable Chop Size

The Cross Stationary Beet Chopper has been designed with a moving hydraulic chopper door. The hydraulics can be used to open the door and allow stones to pass which may be mixed into the beet crop. Tractor Hydraulics or an onboard hydraulic hand pump can be used to open, close or pressurize the door. 

The moving door is also used for varying the chop size of the product. The Beet can be chopped to a pulp or just roughly chopped. The fineness of the chop all depends on the operators needs and it can be set using the hydraulic system on the machine.

Double Chop

Smaller Particles

Some models of the Cross Beet Choppers can be fitted with a double chop system. This is a secondary rotor below the initial rotor which is running at over 3 times the speed of the initial rotor. This allows for an even smaller chop size and will ensure an even size mash for the end user. 

Each rotor of the double chop system is equipped with a variable door for releasing stones or varying the chop size. This allows the user to have much more choice when it comes to the end product dimensions.

Chop Size

Variable in size 

Cross Beet Choppers all come with a variable chop size option. This allows the operator to select the desired chop size while the machine is in operation with the simple pull of a lever. 
Some models of the stationary beet chopper can be fitted with a double rotor. This allows for even finer chopping and ensures an even more uniform chop size. This is used in places where a mash is needed.


Hopper Size

All Cross Stationary Choppers come with the option of hopper extensions. This allows for easier filling and large hopper capacities. The tapered design of the hopper extensions allow for easier filling with a loader. 

All Choppers vary in width as standard. The chopper should be specified to suit your bucket width on the loader. The distance between the legs is what determines the chopper to suit your bucket.


Chopper Height

All choppers can be manufactured with leg length to suit your needs. The standard length leg will provide you with 1.2 meters of clearance below the chopper rotor. Some customers prefer longer legs and these can be custom manufactured to suit the operator. 

Adjustable legs are also available on request. These allow the operator to set the leg height to suit their system. These legs allow the user to vary the height from 1.2 meters to 2.2 meters.
