HG6000TX Horizontal Grinder

Process wood waste more efficiently with the HG6000TX horizontal grinder. Self-propels into the most remote jobsites on 20”/51 cm or 24”/61 cm double grouser track pads. High ground clearance and sealed rollers help keep material from building up in the track system. State-of-the-art wireless remote lets you operate the machine from up to 300’/91.4 m away. An optional discharge blower system distributes processed wood over a large area or can fill a covered trailer from the rear end.

Features and benefits

  • Increase productivity thanks to the exclusive Vermeer SmartGrind system, which automatically controls grinding speed based on engine rpm levels.  
  • Improve cutting performance using the patented series II duplex drum system with reversible hammers and cutter blocks that simplify maintenance and nearly double wear life.
  • Top-loading screens are designed to give operators easy access.
  • Enhance jobsite safety with a Thrown Object Deflector that reduces the quantity and distance of thrown debris.
  • Diversify your end product by incorporating the Fuel Chip Attachment (FCA) allowing your grinder to be converted to a chipper.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
