Introducing the Vermeer TR5300 Trommel Screen

PELLA, Iowa, September 1, 2017 – Vermeer is expanding its line of recycling equipment with
the addition of a new trommel screen. Outfitted with a 74 hp (55 kW) Deutz TD 2.9L Tier
4 Final (EU Stage IV) engine, the powerful Vermeer TR5300 trommel screen delivers a
drum speed of 0–24 rpm to handle multiple material types. The trommel screen’s
conveyors have the ability to lower parallel to the ground giving the operator more
control over dust and wind, while also allowing for easier maintenance area access. The
new unit features convenient controls through the machine display mounted on the
control panel or through a remote control. Changing product sizing can also be done
quickly with the quick-change screen design.

“We focused on the needs of the operator when designing the new TR5300 trommel
screen,” explains Jeff Bradley, product manager for recycling and forestry equipment at
Vermeer. "The unit has four programmable presets that allow the operator to save
settings for different material types, or the operator can quickly make adjustments on
the fly based on incoming materials. There are also several features that make the
TR5300 easy to adjust and service, including access doors around the engine
compartment and dual-hinged doors on both sides of the drum for ease of maintenance
and machine inspection. These service doors give full-length access to the trommel
drum at ground level.”

The Vermeer TR5300 trommel screen’s unique chain-driven direct drum drive permits
the drum to lift off the cog for service. This top-load design allows the drum to be quickly
changed out with proper equipment. This design also makes changing out the bolt-on
sprockets fast and efficient.

A quick-change screen design provides the ability to change screen sizes to match
required end product sizing with only 5 attachment bolts. Users can also tension the
screen around the drum to add rigidity to increase the open area of the screen through
the use of a smaller gauge wire.

Vermeer offers an optional grizzly screen attachment for the TR5300 trommel screen. It
can be mounted over the hopper to prescreen large material and create more consistent
sized overs material.
