This allows three product sizes to be produced through the machine, with the decks being interchangeable to allow more control over end product sizes. The machine also features a 1.6 m (5.25 ft) oversize conveyor that allows it to accommodate higher tonnages and minimises blockages.

A rubber belt feeder comes as standard, with a Hardox apron feeder is available as an option, with remote control also provided as standard, with wireless remote control also an option.
