The model 158 has a chute and does not have the cyclone option so we attached a dust bag to the
blower output. The photo with the label dust bag was the size of the material going into the dust bag
through that blower output. The other samples exited the hammer mill through the chute output. With the
model 198 and model 420 hammer mills, this chute output is usually closed off and all of the material
goes through the blower and up into the cyclone and all the material exits the bottom of the cyclone.

The model 158 has a discharge chute and does not have the cyclone option so we attached a dust bag
to the blower output. If the discharge chute is closed, all the material goes into the dust bag. If the chute
Is open, the material is discharged through the chute. Only the very small material goes into the dust bag.
The model 198 and model 420 hammer mills, this chute output is usually closed off and all of the material
goes through the blower and up into the cyclone and all the material exits the bottom of the cyclone.

The model 158 was not able to process the damp/wet wood bedding with the 2mm screen.
Initially, it was working, but after a gallon or so of material, the 2mm screen clogged.
We changed to a 6mm screen and achieved positive results with the larger screen.
The model 158 was then able to process the damp/wet wood bedding continually.
