Vegetable 12/24 Shredder

The Loftness Vegetable Shredder uses a specially designed rotor that utilizes our contour knife system, enabling the knives to follow the shape of your vegetable beds. Bed rollers follow the contour of the ground and help push the vegetables into the ground to reduce exposure to the sun.
