Horizontal Grinder | Vermeer 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.
