Features & Benefits

SmartGrind system

Increase productivity thanks to the exclusive Vermeer SmartGrind system, which automatically controls grinding speed based on engine rpm levels.

Series II duplex drum system

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

Top-loading screens are designed to give operators easy access.

Thrown object deflector (TOD)

Enhance jobsite safety with a TOD that reduces the quantity and distance of thrown debris.

Drum feature

Diversify your end product by incorporating the fuel chip attachment (FCA), allowing your grinder to be converted to a chipper.

Mobility

The track-driven grinder offers onsite mobility with a remote control for easy maneuverability. The DT6 optional integrated dolly transport system eliminates the need for a dedicated trailer to move between sites.
