Eagle International has been known in the tire recycling world for decades as the foremost authority on hydraulic tire sheers and off-the-road (OTR) tire downsizing. Now, Eagle announces their first machine capable of producing rubber mulch. The Eagle Edge 360 is designed to remove high-quality mulch from the treads and sidewalls of OTR tires ranging in sizes from 33-inch through 63-inch rim size. Eagle has developed a unique design that features rasp heads in three locations at varying angles. Multiple rasp heads increase the surface area that can be claimed as mulch and speeds up cycle time. In addition, operators can shred rubber mulch from the tread and sidewall simultaneously.
