Overview

The Power Shredder is a unique machine designed and developed for outstanding performance in extremely dense vegetation, and gives a more effective result than any flail.

It can reach wet / steep areas that your tractor can’t.  With the Power Shredder running in excess of 1000RPM more than a tractor flail, this high speed combined with a specially developed ‘High Flow’ rotor can achieve remarkable results in vegetation up to 6ft / 1.8m in height.

With a number of material and design innovations, no other manufacturer has been able to produce an ATV mower with such impressive capabilities.

Quad-X have developed the Power Shredder as existing ATV mowers on the market aren’t capable in lough areas, fens, marshes, swamps and bogs which can be home to extremely dense 5-6ft bull rushes/reeds or dense heather, which have become commonplace in wetland areas.  The Quad-X Power Shredder will give outstanding results in these areas!

The main challenge in wetland management is preventing invasion by woody plants such as willow and alder and involves cutting and scrub clearance to maintain them. The Power Shredder mulches the material to aid with a faster rate of decomposition which can help boost the fertility of the ground.

Managing rushes and scrub is extremely important, especially with the risk of losing out on your single farm payment so it is vital to keep on top of your rushes. It has also been discovered that cut rushes contain 70% NPK value of farmyard manure. The finely shredded rushes fertilise your ground to help boost grass growth and profitability.

The double bogie option is useful in particularly damp areas to minimise damage to the ground, which is key in conservation and restoration situations. Heavy machinery can often do more harm than good in wetland areas and and therefore a quad or UTV teamed with the Power Shredder that can do the job more effectively whilst also having less of an impact on the ground.

Outstanding results in dense vegetation!!

The double axle 4 wheeled pivot bogie system is useful in particularly damp areas to minimise damage to the ground, which is key in conservation and restoration situations. Heavy machinery can often do more harm than good in wetland areas and and therefore a quad or UTV teamed with the Power Shredder that can do the job more effectively whilst also having less of an impact on the ground.

The double bogie wheels allow for a smoother travel on rough ground which gives a more efficient cut.

Testimonials

‘I am extremely happy with my Power Shredder, it is the perfect machine for handling my rushes and getting into those wet areas where the tractor has no access.Eddie Mullaney - Boyle, Roscommon
With increased restrictions on burning of heather in the Peak District National Park, I have tried a number of different ATV and tractor mounted mowers to cut heather. The results with the Quad-X Power Shredder were amazing, given that we were cutting growth more akin to small shrubs than heather. The 23HP V twin, with break bar and double bogies straddles the ruts and gave a smooth ride and clean cut. This machine was able to macerate the cut heather into a very fine mulch leaving little detritus to worry about as a uppressant. The Quad-X machine from an engineering point is excellent.Neil Walker - Grouse Moor, Peak District National Park
‘I find my power shredder to be the perfect solution to keeping my heavy rushes in check. It also comes in handy for topping!
The great thing about the shredder is its ability to cope with the dense weed infestation. I found that using other equipment such as toppers didn’t produce the fine chop that the power shredder leaves behind. This allows a faster rejuvenation of my sward. The double bogie feature that I requested for my shredder meant that I was able to cut in wetter conditions that I couldn’t go with my tractor. I couldn’t be happier.’Mark Hamilton - Stirling, Scotland
'I have shredded over 10 hectares so far and the Quad-X Shredder works like a charm. 'Snippy' is a sure game changer on my organic blueberry farm'Willie Bevan - Canada

When we first came to the farm here there were lots of brambles. The farm hadn't been that well looked after. My husband doesn't drive the tractor but will drive the gator so he can use it too. The Power Shredder chops better than the topper and cuts it up small. Penny Hutchinson - Co Down, NI
