Researching and selecting the appropriate equipment is the first and most important step in establishing a successful and profitable wood waste business. ApolloEquipment.net streamlines that process with our powerful online search functions and vast database of Tub & Horizontal Grinders, Chippers, Screeners, Blowers and other material handling equipment from a variety of manufactures that are available on today's market. Consequently, time spent on planning and research will be a wise investment.

 

Begin by determining your goals and what type and volume of material you will be processing, whether you are interested in simple volume reduction or total recycling and the potential markets for your end products. Next, determine your budget and operating expenses; consider where you will be operating and the transportation of equipment to those locations, are you wanting a mobile or stationary operation? Outline all the factors in your operations to determine your operating expenses and considering them in the purchase of your equipment can help ensure that you do not over or under purchase machinery.

 

As you work through your plans and goals, questions will crop up but a few basic answers will steer you in the right direction. For example, to simply reduce whole trees and big limbs you might want to consider a whole tree chipper because it can quickly handle tree length material. However if you add stumps, root balls, brush, pallets and yard waste into your plans a grinder, not a chipper may be a better choice. If you want to manufacture popular shredded landscape mulch, a hammermill style Tub or Horizontal Grinder would better provide an end product that requires little or no further processing. To further enhance the value and marketability of the end product, you may want to consider a mulch coloring unit.

 

Ultimately, your equipment purchases will be determined by what you want to accomplish and knowing your goals up front will bring you closer to making a wise purchase decision.
