The Vermeer HG4000TX self-propelled horizontal grinder allows the operator to effectively maneuver around land-clearing, compost or forest-thinning jobsites without the need for additional support equipment. The 440-hp (330-kW) Tier 3 diesel engine powers the exclusive duplex drum, which features 8 hammers and 16 cutters. The reversible hammers and cutter blocks last nearly twice as long as single-sided designs. Top-loading screens offer easy access and a removable anvil allows for convenient maintenance or replacement. The exclusive SmartGrind feature stops and reverses material from feeding into the hammermill when engine rpm drops below an efficient operating range. A 48-inch wide (122 cm) single-discharge V-cleat belt provides a smooth, efficient transfer of processed material from the belly of the machine to the load out. The HG4000TX can be controlled by a multi-function, wireless remote control that allows the operator to control most operating functions from a maximum operating distance of 300 feet (91 m). The self-propelled Vermeer HG4000TX features a wide infeed table, Tier 3 Cummins diesel engine, track undercarriage and the patented duplex drum. The HG4000TX is a fully self-propelled unit that allows the operator to effectively maneuver around land-clearing, compost or forest-thinning jobsites without the need for additional support equipment. The track undercarriage is equipped with 20-inch (51-cm) double grouser track pads that provide increased flotation in soft ground conditions and access to remote jobsites that tow-behind units can’t reach.
