Features & Benefits

Two electric motors

The HG6000E is powered by two electric motors that deliver a combined 600 hp (447 kW) to 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 is used 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.

Series II duplex drum system

Improve cutting performance using the patented Series II duplex drum system designed with reversible hammers and tips to help reduce daily maintenance and nearly double wear life.

Dedicated chip drum

For enhanced flexibility with the HG6000E, a dedicated chip drum – adjustable for product size ranging from .125 in to 1.5 in (3.2 mm to 38.1 mm) - is available.

Open-ended, wide infeed tables

Maximize loading speed and productivity using the patented SmartGrind system and hydraulic feed roller down pressure. Open-ended, wide infeed tables are designed to make over-the-side loading easy and efficient.

Thrown object deflector (TOD)

Reduce the quantity and distance of thrown material debris with the TOD, strategically placed to reduce interference when loading over-length material.
