    Granulator

    Made an offer, I figure not a huge market for small, old and 3 phase.



    My 15kw generator can be configured as single or three phase, it will have the balls to run this granulator plus a water system to keep the dust down.

    You ask why old Gus would want this when he already has a hammer mill, simple this is a much smaller unit that can be installed indoors.

    The art of survival is a story that never ends. American Hustle.

    Seller has had this listed for the past 4 months, he thought he caught a hungry fish.

    Told him it was just another toy and that i already had a hammer mill doing the same job and that i had thought his smaller machine could be used indoors during the winter months.

    Forgot to mention that I have a generator that could run that 3 phase electric motor.

    I'll let him stew or chew on my offer.

    In truth the hammer mill is best suited for this type of work, the hammers are free floating while the knives on the granulator are in a fixed position making them subject to serious damage should something very hard and solid were to strike a blade.

    It seems like you have a lot of different projects in the works. You must be a very busy man.

    Not near as busy as I was when gus built a car trailer from an old RV frame and worked his way up to a crane truck from the proceeds earned using that trailer.

    Living rural you have to either become an alcoholic to dull the pain of boredom or create projects to keep yer mind occupied, I chose the latter.

    If I'm not careful could end up like Travis.
