HG6000TX Horizontal Grinder

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.


Features and Benefits

  • Increase productivity thanks to the exclusive Vermeer SmartGrind system, which automatically controls grinding speed based on engine rpm levels.  
  • Improve cutting performance using the patented series II duplex drum system with reversible hammers and cutter blocks that simplify maintenance and nearly double wear life.
  • Top-loading screens are designed to give operators easy access.
  • Enhance jobsite safety with a Thrown Object Deflector that reduces the quantity and distance of thrown debris.
  • Diversify your end product by incorporating the Fuel Chip Attachment (FCA) allowing your grinder to be converted to a chipper.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.

Fuel Chip Attachment FCA

Designed for use with Vermeer HG6000 or HG6000TX horizontal grinders equipped with the Series II Duplex Drum, the fuel chip attachment changes the action of the cutting drum from ripping and shredding to a chipping action — offering the ability to produce a more uniformly sized end product.
