"The Pentagon Hammer Set we have in our Roskamp meal grinder is working very well. I'll be buying at least two more Sets of these hammers for our other machines."
- Maintenance & Reliability Leader

"Been using Pentagon X2 Holeformance for 3 weeks in Champion Mill. 60 AMPS savings so increased Feed Rate which increased throughput 8%. The Champion capacity is 65 Million and Currently Running at 70-71 Million. Easy to install and fewer spacers! We removed [Brand X] Hammers from a 2nd Mill and replaced with Pentagon X2 Holeformance to get the same savings and increased throughput."
- Maintenance Manager, December 2016

"We recently switched to Pentagon Hammers; the installer said the hammers went on so smooth, they thought something was wrong. Took 20 minutes to install 120 hammers. After a week, the hammers were inspected and there were a few sticking out. Touched them and they fell down. In the next two inspections, all hammers were down."
- Maintenance Supervisor, December 2016

"After we installed Pentagons, we saw a 50% increase in production with a finer grind."
- Jay, Major Poultry Feed Mill

"We have one more set of [Competitor] hammers to go through and then going exclusive with Pentagons. For ease of installation and performance, the Pentagons can't be beat!"
- Chris, Maintenance Manager

"Gold star for pentagons! We are getting the best grind we have ever had and are happy about that!"

- Maintenance Manager

"Feed flow did increase, we were able to turn them up and get more AMPS on our ground grain elevator. Very satisfied with the Pentagon Hammers. Showed them to sister plant and he is interested in getting a set. I told him I was sold on them."
- Plant Manager

"Both mills running Pentagons. Last sets ran for about 11 months, pushing 13,000 to 14,000 ton per week. 572,000 tons of life on hammers!" -

Pentagon

"Our [Competitor] die that has 500 hours on it isn't performing as well as the Lightning Die which Currently has 6,500 hours on it. The Lightning Die is still making pellets and the [Competitor] die is struggling. Will be switching fully to Lightning Dies in the future!"
- Feed Supervisor

"Maintenance sent the following numbers regarding 5 different feeds.
Feed 1: 35% Increase in throughput
Feed 2: 44% Increase in throughput
Feed 3: 42% Increase in throughput
Feed 4: 87% Increase in throughput
Feed 5: 9% Increase in throughput.
-International Customer, October 2016

"The Lightning Die has increased our production 30%+. The Die has been on for 4,000+ hours and still doing great. We added storage bins, which now was a waste of money as we have increased production and use the raw materials as fast as it comes in. I can't believe the whole industry doesn't jump to the Lightning!"
- Plant Manager
