TG5000 Tub Grinder

Tub Grinder | Vermeer TG5000

The TG5000 is an ideal combination of innovation and power. Powered by one of two turbocharged CAT Tier 3 engine options, it features a hydraulic tub drive chain tensioner that automatically adjusts the chain while operating as well as the exclusive Vermeer duplex drum, which offers optimum cutting performance and simplified maintenance. Add on the PT tech wet clutch with microprocessor control to automatically limit torque when necessary. Optional climate-controlled cab and grapple loader makes the TG5000 a one-man operation to help reduce labor costs and increase jobsite efficiency.


Features and Benefits

  • Standard radio remote controls allow most machine functions to be operated from the convenience and comfort of a mobile loader.
  • Handle more material with the continuous undermill conveyor system that resists clogging.
  • Reduce quantity and distance of thrown objects with a low profile tub cover and rotor deflector.
  • Tub tilt over 90 degrees allows easy servicing of hammermill and screens, reducing maintenance time in the field.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
