Franklin Miller Shredders and Knife Mills take Hemp right out of the field and produce an output ready for extraction. When paired with a dryer or air drying, we offer complete systems to get you up and ready with a fast, reliable and efficient operation which produces the most possible yield for your product.

Our TASKMASTER® Shredders can shred wet or dry hemp with ease, down to a 5/16" particle size. Our versatile shredders can be installed in a plant or in the field in order to facilitate the production of CBD and other hemp extracts.

Our DEINFER® Knife Mills can take dry hemp and reduce it to a fine particle size with ease. Depending on the final particle size and capacity requirements, different models and units are available. These powerful units are available in carbon and stainless steel for use in sanitary and non-sanitary applications.


The TASKMASTER® Industrial Shredders provide complete hemp plant reduction, including stalks, roots and bulbs as well as a variety of other materials. Our powerful shredders are used for both improved C02 Extraction and for safer and more efficient drying. We offer both single and dual stage configurations for output down to 5/16". Wet or dry hemp TASKMASTER Shredders are the industry leaders in hemp shredding and size reduction.

These powerful shredders are a clean and quiet alternative to a gas-powered wood chipper. They typically employ up to a 30 HP motor and gear drive, and are supplied complete with a stand, hopper and automatic reversing controller. Infeed or discharge conveyor systems are available as an optional add-on.


Knife Mills

DEFINER KM Knife Mills are compact, high performance knife mills that quickly and efficiently reduce dry hemp to desired output size. The DEFINER Knife Mills employ high shear knives that accurately cut solids to a desired output size with a shear action without over grind or excessive fines. These knife mills are a more efficient alternative to hammer mills which cause less fines and degradation of the final product. This leads to more efficient extraction and a higher final yield of the hemp. Franklin Miller offers a wide range of DEFINER Knife Mills for growers, big and small, with a unit to suite almost any application.

Hemp OutputWhen put behind a TASKMASTER Hemp Shredder, the DEFINER Knife Mills, our Franklin Miller size reduction processors, can take full stalks of wet hemp and produce output ready for extraction and processing.
