New Mobile Windshifter from Nihot

The SDM windshifter is produced by Dutch companies Nihot and TRS.

The new version is an offering from Nihot Recycling Technology B.V. in conjunction with TRS BV. According to the manufacturer, it will enlarge the product range, meeting both market and customers’ needs. “The SDi windshifter, the most reliable and versatile heavy/light separator, is now available on tracks in addition to semi-mobile and static options, allowing customers the opportunity to choose the configuration which best suits their application and environment”, the companies underlined. Their collaboration is a “response to the increasing market demand for an SDi windshifter on caterpillar tracks. A configuration that expands the versatility of a mobile windshifter when processing various waste types in different places”. According to Nihot Sales and Marketing Director Joep Barenbrug, since Nihot introduced the first semi-mobile windshifter in 2011 – now known as SDi – it has become one of the company’s most popular machines. “Our customers are very satisfied with the adaptability and performance of our SDi semi-mobile windshifter, but most use it as a static machine. But ever since its introduction, we have received customer requests for a fully mobile Nihot windshifter. Some customers need a self-propelled windshifter as no power source is available on remote sites, while others want tracks to maneuver from pile to pile when processing rough and sharp materials, such as metal scrap.” The SDi windshifter will be manufactured at the Nihot factory, and the tracks are designed and constructed by TRS.
