  • ability to switch modes of operation for the grinding of different materials.This will not do the extra energy or fuel consumption without loss of quality.
  • presence of pre-cutting knife extends equipment lifetime.
  • self-protection function increases safety.This is especially true of electric device that has stopped working due to voltage drop in the network, and then establishing itself sharply involved.With this function, children and pets will be safe.
