HG8000 Horizontal Grinder

Horizontal Grinder | Vermeer HG8000 Horizontal Grinder

Large-diameter wood and brushy debris are no match for the HG8000 horizontal grinder. No need to cut it down to size: this monster of a machine has the largest infeed opening in its class and the power of a 1050 hp/783.3 kw CAT Tier 2 engine. Dual planetary feed roller drives push material into the drum with outstanding efficiency. Extra-wide load-out conveyer lets you drop processed wood where you want it without slowing down the grinding action.


Features and Benefits

  • Get up and running quickly with four pre-set infeed settings that control the material’s finished size.
  • 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.
  • Change screens easily with the on-board screen handler system.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
