Self-Propelled Compost Windrower
How to use your organic manure productively? The answer is to carry out non-destructive treatment through the compost fermentation process. It has also become an urgent problem for many animal farmers. Of course, the treatment and resource utilization of organic manure must rely on advanced technology and equipment. As the key equipment in the compost fermentation process, the compost turner greatly affects the production efficiency and product quality of composting. So in manure processing, it is very important to choose the correct compost turners.
For small and medium-sized farms, the self-propelled compost turner is easy to operate and flexible. It is a good helper for you to deal with organic manure. Compared with the groove type compost turners, the self-propelled machine does not require the construction of a trench. It only needs to stack the raw materials into strips on the flat ground for fermentation. So it is more favored by small and medium-sized farms. Shunxin Machinery has two types of self-propelled compost turner for you to choose: four-wheel travel and crawler travel.

Can You Compost Without Turning?
Before you start composting, you may ask: Does compost need turning? The answer is kitchen and yard waste will compost even if you do not turn it. However, the fermentation of organic waste such as livestock manure, sludge waste, sugar mill filter mud, biogas residue, and straw sawdust, you should turn it. What are the reasons? This is because composting is an oxidative decomposition process in which oxygen is required to support the growth of beneficial organisms and eliminate toxic compounds. The microbial decomposition of organic materials requires continuous consumption of oxygen. So you should turn several times during composting to fill the heap with enough oxygen.
Why are compost turners so important? Because the key process of making organic fertilizer is the aerobic fermentation of organic manure. The compost turner is the core equipment in this process. Before the aerobic fermentation of organic fertilizer, to adjust the carbon-nitrogen ratio, moisture, pH value, etc., it is necessary to add auxiliary materials or specific functional bacterial agents. The turner machine can play a stirring function so that the materials can be stirred evenly. Correct use of compost turners at the right time can speed up the fermentation process. Therefore, according to the size of your farm, it is particularly important to choose the right compost turner.
For small and medium-sized farms, what kind of composting machine is suitable to choose? Shunxin Machinery recommends two types of equipment suitable for small and medium-sized farms to use, namely moving type compost turner and crawler type compost turner.
Key 2 Self-Propelled Compost Turners for Sale
Moving Type Compost Turner of the Self-Propelled Compost Turners
The moving type compost turner is a pile turning equipment that integrates the functions of walking, crushing, mixing, and turning. It has the advantages of uniform mixing, thorough turning, and long moving distance. It is widely suitable for the fermentation of organic wastes such as livestock and poultry manure, sludge waste, organic fertilizer plants, mud waste plants, horticultural fields, and straw sawdust. The moving type compost turner uses a four-wheel moving design, you can operate it by one person. The operation is simple, free, and flexible. We can implement it in the open field or the workshop greenhouse. The moving type compost turner uses a diesel engine as its power source.
Advantages of Moving Type Compost Turner
The operation is simple and convenient. It only needs one person to drive the machine to turn over an entire stack of compost piles. It is easy to start and save a certain cost.
The construction cost is low. This method of composting and fermentation only needs to stack organic fertilizers and does not require a professional trench for fermentation. It is simple and easy to operate and is suitable for small-scale production and places where production conditions are not very good. Do not spend too much human resources and material resources to carry out careful debugging.
The turning and throwing effect is good. The moving type compost turner can effectively turn the organic manure compost so that the compost can obtain sufficient oxygen during fermentation, which increases the fermentation efficiency.
Disadvantages of Moving Type Compost Turner
The moving type compost turner also has many limitations. First of all, the degree of automation is not high. With the development of technology, the machines have realized the production of intelligent automation, but the moving type compost turner is still inclined to manual control. Secondly, the efficiency is not as high as the automatic compost turners. Thirdly, is the problem of the site. this kind of windrow composting covers an excessively large area, especially when producing a large amount of organic fertilizer. Lastly, when the weather changed, the losses were very tragic.
Given these shortcomings of the moving type compost turner, our equipment has made changes to the compost machines again and again, from the moving type compost turner to the crawler compost turner, and then to the current groove type compost turner. These shortcomings of the moving type compost turner have been gradually overcome, especially now more efficient, intelligent groove type compost turners are used. The groove type compost turner of our equipment uses automatic control, which can efficiently turn the organic fertilizer pile. The trench fermentation can effectively control the temperature and humidity during the fermentation process and effectively deal with the odor. It can carry out efficient indoor fermentation and realize efficient and intelligent turning.
Crawler Type Compost Turner of the Self-Propelled Compost Turners
The crawler type compost turner belongs to the ground composting and fermentation mode. Firstly, it needs to stack the materials in long strips, then the crawler type compost turner slowly moves and flips on the long strip, regularly stirs and crushes the materials, and finally decomposes the organic matter under aerobic conditions. So what are the advantages of the crawler type compost turner? The crawler type compost turner can replace high-strength manual turning, which greatly saves time and labor, and creates a better aerobic environment for material fermentation.
6 Advantages of the Self-Propelled Crawler Compost Turner
- The walking process is stable, the contact surface between the track and the ground is larger, and there is no slippage.
- The turning drum can be lifted hydraulically, which is convenient for the treatment of ground clearance.
- The helical blade of the drum is detachable, which is convenient for maintenance and replacement.
- The crawler is driven by a hydraulic motor, with good adhesion, low ground specific pressure, and strong ground passing ability.
- The two sides of the crawler can be controlled independently, and it can be turned around on the spot to improve the utilization rate of the material stacking site.
- The drive is stronger, and self-contained palletizer for automatic palletizing, eliminating the trouble of traditional stacking first and then turning over.
The main technical parameters of the crawler type turning machine are as follows:
|Compost Width (mm)||2300||2600||3000||3000|
