Chemco Matting: Chemco Crambo

This Komptech Crambo unit is a wood waste reducing ‘beast’. With a 600 HP C18 Caterpillar engine and 134 aggressive teeth, it can chew up the toughest material, reducing an access mat in about a minute. The reduced wood can then be used for things such as biofuels, absorbants, mulch, etc.

An industry leader in its class, it can reduce material at a rate of 100 tons/hr under ideal conditions and can reduce bolted access mats at a rate of approximately 60 tons per hour. The Chemco Crambo unit is equipped with two ultra-strong magnets, making metal recovery a breeze. It even has optional screens that control for product sizing in the range of 2″ to 24″.

The Chemco Crambo is a big innovation in environmentally friendly wood disposal. In the past, access mats were hauled away for disposal in landfills. With this machine, we can successfully eliminate unnecessary trucking, massively reduce the amount of waste going to landfills, and ultimately reduce our carbon footprint. The CAT diesel engine is equipped with the latest emission controls, making its environmental impact minimal.

Safety is a cornerstone at Chemco. With the Chemco Crambo being driven remotely, it improves safety for the operator and everyone else on site. There is simply no better mobile shredder on the market.


The Chemco Crambo can handle railroad ties, building materials, telephone poles, access mats, etc. If you have a need for wood waste recycling, your solution is just one call away at 1 (587) 773-3541.
