Terex Ecotec’s new high-speed shredder is designed to be the ideal machine for wood processing and green waste shredding. Since Terex Ecotec was established in 2014, the product line has grown rapidly.

The 105,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Derry, Northern Ireland supports the manufacture and design of ongoing innovative world-class range of equipment.

Mobile Screening and Crushing (MSC) is the exclusive New Zealand distributor for the Terex Ecotec range of processing, biomass, and recycling equipment. MSC was formed more than 25 years ago and equipped with this extensive experience, have developed a reputation of being committed to delivering innovative, quality solutions for difficult to process materials.

"MSC has made a significant impact on the New Zealand recycling market through their vast application, knowledge, and commitment to providing high levels of customer support, combined with the latest recycling technology provided by Terex Ecotec," says MSC marketing manager Catrina Quinn.

Terex Ecotec expands presence in New Zealand with MSC

"Mobile Screening and Crushing NZ is a proven dealership in the heavy equipment industry and is an ambassador of Terex’s brands," says Andy Meikle MSC’s director.

"The expansion of MSC’s footprint and Ecotec’s product line comes at a time of rapid evolution and growth in New Zealand’s waste and organic recycling sectors." 

Product Focus: Ecotec TBG 530T

MSC already offers a comprehensive portfolio, recently expanding its range of mobile equipment with the launch of the Ecotec TBG 530T. A robust track-mounted high-speed shredder, the TBG 530T is ideal for medium-scale producers requiring an accurate and consistent end product.

"The addition of the TBG 530T will further enhance an already significant range of products, aiding MSC in offering the complete package solutions particularly suited to waste wood processing and green waste shredding," says Dan Meikle, MSC general manager.

Robust design

At the heart of the machine is the 1100mm diameter x 1490mm wide-swinging hammer rotor. The robust, direct-drive rotor rotates at 1000rpm and incorporates 30 up-swinging hammers.

A wide selection of hammer designs and interchangeable screens are available, allowing the machine to be configured to suit ever-changing product requirements. "Ecotec’s product range has rapidly expanded to meet both market and customer needs. With these latest offerings, they continue to strive to remain at the forefront of the recycling equipment market," says Andy. 

Optimised shredding and material build-up prevention

The Ecotec TBG 530T also benefits from the added protection of a screen kickback system. Should an unshreddable object enter the shredding chamber, the screen will release, allowing the material to quickly pass through, reducing the risk of accidental damage.

Powered by a 493hp Scania DC13 engine, the TBG 530T has been designed to give operators enhanced performance, ease of maintenance and increased fuel efficiency.

Easy maintenance

Whether performing daily checks or carrying out maintenance, the TBG 530T offers service access to all key areas of the machine. The electric/hydraulic raise/lower of the screen and interlocked chamber access door allow the rotor and anvil to be inspected with ease.

"Terex has really focused on efficiency, serviceability and maintenance access when designing this machine. It has amazing access to all key areas of the machine," says Dan.


Processed material is removed from the machine via a modular product conveyor with a discharge height of 4.6 metres. The conveyor also lowers to ground level for inspection and maintenance.

An optional overband magnet with hydraulic height adjustment can be fitted to remove ferrous metals from the product. "It’s important that we offer high-quality, robust, and reliable equipment such as the TBG 530T.

The addition of the TBG 530T shredder will further enhance an already significant portfolio of products offered by MSC, meeting both market and customers’ needs," says Catrina.

The Terex Ecotec product portfolio consists of shredders, trommel screens, recycling screens, separators, and conveyors. Additional recent innovations, such as the TTS 518 Trommel Screen, help complete MSC’s product line offerings.
