Features and Benefits


  • The HG4000E is equipped with a 500 hp (373 kW) WEG total enclosed fan-cooled electric motor to power the mill. A separate 50 hp (37.3 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • For enhanced flexibility with the HG4000E, a dedicated chip drum – adjustable for product size ranging from .125” to 1.5” (3.2 mm to 38.1 mm) - is available.
  • 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.
  • Reduce the quantity and distance of thrown material debris with the TOD, strategically placed to reduce interference when loading over-length material.
