The new infeed on the HG6800TX was designed with low sidewalls to help the operator more easily load material into the machine. This feature allows larger loads to be dropped on the infeed with less interaction and manipulation of the material, so the operator can drop the load and focus on the next one.

Vermeer's HG6800TX horizontal grinder Features 950 hp (708 kW) in a 92,000 lb. (41,730.5 kg) class, and an infeed design to aid in feeding larger material such as whole trees. The new grinder is built to power through tough materials with less operator interaction.

Precise Design

“The HG6800TX is designed for large-scale land-clearing contractors to help maximize productivity and efficiency,” said Jeff Bradley, product manager of recycling and forestry equipment at Vermeer. “The feed roller on this machine can climb up to 50 inches to help tackle the tough material elements that land-clearing contractors often come across.”

Exclusive Technology

Equipped with the latest technology from Vermeer, the HG6800TX features the Series III duplex hard-faced drum. In addition to providing long-lasting durability, maintenance time is decreased with the ability to remove and flip or replace single hammers, as well as being able to externally balance the drum

The remote control puts the machine control menu and machine operating information at the user's fingertips so operators can monitor machine health from the loader cab.

With the optional damage defense system, contractors who deal with contaminated wood can help protect their equipment by reducing the likelihood of major machine damage caused by certain metal contaminants entering the hammermill. The system reacts to the initial contact of metal by reversing the feed system to allow for removal.

The HG6800TX also features technologies like SmartFeed and the Thrown Object Deflector (TOD). SmartFeed optimizes machine performance and production electronically and allows the operator to focus on loading raw product and move finished product about the job site. The function stops and reverses material from feeding into the hammermill when engine rpm's drop below efficient operating range.

The TOD decreases the quantity and distance of thrown objects, allowing the machine to be operated in a smaller “safe” work zone. The feature is hinged and can be raised or lowered depending upon grinding applications, simply with the remote control.
