When selecting equipment for processing pallets and/or pallet scrap, the first consideration must be the intended use of the end product. Some examples include: animal bedding, boiler fuel, pellets & briquettes, cellulosic ethanol, landscape mulch, playground cover, and composite lumber.
The following criteria must also be considered:
- - Required throughput
- - Required finished size
- - Size and uniformity of in-feed pallets or scrap
