The ATFP200DE is a Diesel Engine powered pellet mill with a 200 mm diameter die with a 12 volt electric starter, the holes in the die can be pretty much whatever size you would like. It is designed to be powered by a variable rpm Diesel Engine rated at 15HP. If I supply the engine it will be a Chang-Chai China Diesel. They are the least expensive I have found and require regular attention. This type of engine is evaporatively cooled. There is no radiator. It just heats up to 212 degrees and starts blowing off steam. You have to keep an eye on the coolant level at each fuel fill up as it naturally evaporates away. These engines are one lung diesels and they shake rattle and roll. It is not uncommon for them to shake loose a nut or bolt here or there, so when you are filling the water or diesel you need to check the oil level, and the tightness of all exposed nuts and bolts. It burns about a quart of diesel per hour. If you don’t know how to turn a wrench you should probably find an alternative power source. But if you know your way around a toolbox you won’t find a better value in diesel power.This mill is rated at 220 to 440 lbs per hour of production depending on the type of material you want to pelletize. Wood is much more difficult to pelletize than grasses or grains and wood should not be used with this mill. It is very good however at making animal feed pellets from hay or grain or mixtures of them. It weighs 551Lbs and its dimensions are 47 x 22 x 43 inches. Spare Die is $105 Spare Roller assy is also $105. Figure on changing the die and roller every 1600 hours of operation, but rocks, bolts etc. can damage them beyond use, so I recommend you keep a set of spares .
