Mechanical straw shredding
    #4377646 - 07/06/05 11:14 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

I know this has come up before but what is a good way to mechanically shred a bail of straw. I want to just shred up a whole bail, and bag it up and it should last a very long time. Hand cutting straw leaves my hands blistered and takes forever.

I tried using a blower/mulcher vac, but I ended up destroying the plastic impeller. The large $600 gas powered mulchers are not aviable to rent and a little large and pricey for a 1 time project. Several companies around here rent tow behind mulchers, but those are massive and would attract a little too much attention.

Someone mentioned a lawn mover. That seems kinda messy and inefficent.

Any ideas are really welcome. Also I live in a pretty dense area, so gas power will attract attention.

Use a strap (or whatever) to hold the end of the bale - TIGHT. :stoned:

Use a decent SKILLSAW to cut off XX much. :tongue:

Move strap back XX length, tighten & repeat. :laugh:

Continue until bale is done. :wink:

One shoud should check his local classifieds/craigs List/ penny saver. Keywords Mulcher and Shredder. I got one for $40 that is electric and small enough to fit in a closet (with the top part slid off) and it chops like a monster. :stoned:
