Default Mini crusher

I have been asked about crushing used clay pigeons down to a uniform sub 10mm size so they can recycle them into something else. They are obviously pretty soft, but doing a quick google there is not much that crushes that small.
Some of the Red rhino crushers do, but Iíve heard a lot of negative stuff about them, but as initially looking to hire something to see if they are happy shouldnít be a huge problem.
Did wonder about an industrial shredder, but they are big money.
Anyone got experience of crushing this fine? Or any good ideas?
Graham

Clay pigeons are so small a slow spead shreader should do it

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222669677477 might do it but quite expensive

Or this not quite sure how that one works as a lack of pictures

Thanks, but ideally looking for something I can initially hire as customer can be a bit fickle.

Difficult to say what annual volume will be. There is a substantial heap at present, but it has been accumulated over time. Hence trialling with a hired machine.

Please keep me posted. Iím often coming past your way and could put a trail amount through if it looks feasible.

I'd be speaking to Sean Herron at Worsley Plant about one of the Remu Buckets?

I'm certain they do one with a crushing setup that would force the material through and give a very consistent grade.

They would almost certainly demo or hire one.

The first one is made by ken mills engineering would it be worth speaking to them and see if you can demo something or even find a site using one and transport say an 8 wheeler to them to get an idea
Not sure who else make something similar that isnt huge
Various places hire timeberwalf high speed shredders i dont know if they can be fitted with screens like there bigger brothers to allow a more consistent product

The one may be a haybuster or rotogrind or mobile hammermill various agricultural contractors hirer these out they are meant to cope with pallets so i wouldnt think clays would damage them more than nails

That was my first thought. I've spoken to someone who has a Remu crossover bucket, but their spacing is way to large. I have tried to purchase a screening bucket from Worsley in the past and found them very difficult to deal with. I wanted a spec they advertised, but had not sold in this country. I obviosly only wanted it if it did the job as advertised. I was happy to agree that if it did the job, which they seemed confident it would, I would pay for it, but if it didn't I didn't want it, but they were only willing to order it if I had it regardless. I then offered to send a sample of the material to the factory so they could try it and either I would go over there or they could video it, but they wouldn't go for that either. May be it is me as everyone else seems to think how helpful they are.
