Features & Benefits

Enclosed fan-cooled electric motor

The TG5000E is equipped with a 500-hp (373-kW) Weg totally enclosed fan-cooled electric motor to power the mill. A separate 60-hp (44.7-kW) electric motor powers the pump for the hydraulic circuits, while a 2-hp (1.5-kW) electric motor powers the fan to cool the hydraulic system.

Motor starter panel

The motor starter panel provides options to configure a control system that best fits your application - whether that’s a soft-start or VFD panel.

Reversible hammers and tips

The duplex drum offers proven cutting performance, and reversible hammers and tips nearly double the wear life of single-sided designs and simplify daily maintenance.

Thrown object restraint system (TORS)

The patented TORS reduces the amount and distance of thrown objects, and has a smooth underside for better material flow.

On-rig display or remote control

Monitor real-time performance and data via the on-rig display or remote control.

Continuous undermill discharge conveyor system

Designed to handle more production with less clogging, the 36-in (91.4-cm) wide continuous undermill discharge conveyor system offers optimum speed and capacity.
