...we build this machine completely to your wishes


Weterings Mechanisatie has over 25 years of experience in development and production of crop shredding machines. These “Bio Choppers” were mainly built for (Dutch) contractors. Efficiency, speed and reliability are keywords for these machines.

Weterings used this experience for the development of compact Bio Choppers. Eventhough, this machine is specifically designed for personal use by growers, horticultural contractors have also found it to be an excellent machine.

The Bio Chopper Compact shreds crops, such as tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, aubergines, strawberries or raspberries. The crop volume is reduced to approximately 20% of it’s origin.

The machine works with tarps on which the crop is placed. It rolls up the canvas and pulls in the stems. The crop is then shredded or chopped, after which the crop waste is dumped into a container. The container can be emptied by a forklift.

The Bio Chopper Compact has a user friendly interface, is built according to the latest safety standards and has a capacity of 2.500-5.000 m2/hour (depending on the circumstances).
This machine includes an auto-sharpener for the knife-blades, an hydraulic system to open up the machine which makes maintenance and cleaning easy, a swivable discharge unit,
an optional metal detector to avoid damage to the knife-blades, and other impressive features.
