The BA 916 is a powerful and versatile JENZ shredder that is ideal for processing green waste, silage and bark. By installing stationary tools, good fuels can be produced from, for example, woody green waste or pre-crushed roots. With 530 HP, 19 t of total weight and 10.4 m transport length, the BA 916 is a real work horse. The rotor speed of over 1.100 rpm enables particularly fine material cut, even with difficult material such as manure.

Made for agriculture:
The new agricultural variant of the BA 916 is specially tailored to the needs of farmers, contractors and biogas plant operators. In addition to standard stationary tools, the shredder scores with optional special screen baskets and special features for processing sugar beets.

Uniquely good

JENZ biomass processors are the ideal choice for companies that value efficiency, safety and convenience. They achieve uniform material quality, are economical in fuel consumption and reduce the burden on drivers. These shredders are also durable with a high tractive force and offer unique flexibility: One rotor for everything.


tool System

The entry of foreign objects is one of the greatest risks for machine failures. The new tool system, easyprotect, addresses this issue directly by providing protection in the event of foreign object entry. Thanks to a newly developed overload function and optimized geometry, consequential damage and downtime are significantly reduced. Damaged wear parts can now be replaced directly in the machine within minutes, allowing work to resume quickly.


The easy2 machine controller is clearly laid out, can be operated intuitively and offers a number of advantages to simplify everyday work. These include a large touch display with clearly structured menu navigation, driver assistance systems and the easy2CONNECT remote controller.

Professional maintenance concept

A discharge conveyor, which can be swivelled to the side, and a movable toolbox simplify and and shorten maintenance. The discharge conveyor is opened at the push of a button and offers direct access to the rotor. The toolbox is equipped with an air connection point, light and useful tools.

Screen basket replacement in under 10 minutes

A screen basket set of two screen baskets can be changed easily and quickly by a single person.  An additional set can also be attached to the discharge chute. This facilitates easy and fast switching between different materials.

Beet Mode BA 916 AGRAR

The BA 916 AGRAR comes equipped with special beet processing software. Beets can be processed as chunks or pulp. The beet pulp can be pumped into the fermenter as needed. Together with other materials, the beet chunks can be stored in large silos.

GFA Draw-in control system

Sensors detect the rotor and intake speed and optimally adapt the parameters. The result is consistently high engine utilisation when processing green waste, biowaste, and bark, and maximum throughput capacity.

DIP Roller Pressure System

Due to the variable pre-load pressure of the upper roller, the shredder can adapt to any material. For example, cut shrubbery requires a higher pressure, while bark is best drawn in without pressure. Thanks to its easy adjustment to respective requirements, the machine works efficiently and achieves a consistent output.

IPS Impact Protection System

The IPS (Impact Protection System) protects the machines and the end material from massive foreign objects, such as stones or iron parts. When the sensors detect an impact, the machine reacts immediately, which prevents consequential damage.

One rotor for everything

Our innovative tooling system permits the use of both free-swinging and stationary tools. Rotor rearrangement is extremely fast and allows adaptation to any material. In addition, full or half tool kits can be run with the same rotor.

Operator Information System

This system serves direct communication purposes between the driver and machine. It consists of LED status lights that indicate the machine status and the easy2CONNECT remote controller that allows control of all functions from the loading vehicle. 


Mode Selecting System

The machine has three preset shredding modes that can be adjusted depending on the source material. For example, green waste can be assigned a separate mode, which is then called up at the push of a button. This saves time and enables even inexperienced operators to make optimum use of the machine.


To ensure smooth operation of JENZ machines, log data can be transmitted to JENZ on a daily basis. These data help to detect anomalies more quickly and, in the event of an error message, support can be provided quickly and reliably.


The JES (JENZ Energy Saver) mode can shut down the engine to idle at the push of a button if work is interrupted. This stops the conveyor belt and the intake. To continue work, switch back to operation by pressing a button and restart the system.


With the setup and disassembly assistant, the JENZ machine is ready for use in just 1 minute. One push of a button is all it takes to raise the discharge conveyor, lower the hopper, and engage the rotor.

Smart Hydraulics

Intelligent hydraulic control allows precise adjustment of the machine to the material and the desired discharge. This ensures high processing quality and maximum efficiency. Diagnostic valves offer easy fault diagnosis - both for the operator and for JENZ Service.

Ergonomic maintenance access for the JENZ BA 916 shredder


The ergonomic maintenance access enables convenient and safe replacement of wear parts. The discharge belt can be swivelled to the side at the push of a button, providing free access to the rotor. Alternatively, a forklift or wheel loader can be moved right up to the rotor to remove heavy wear parts.

Professional toolbox for the JENZ BA 916 shredder


The machine is equipped with a standard professional tooling system. This includes a swivelling toolbox, compressed air connection and work lights. If mounted to the machine, the toolbox can be easily swivelled to the rotor. This provides direct access to all important tools and spare parts at any time.

In addition, a compressed air hose reel with a 15 m line is located in the side of the conveyor intake. The reel is equipped with a quick-coupling valve, which allows quick and easy connection and disconnection of the line.
