Vermeer horizontal grinders are built tough and offered in a variety of configurations to suit large land-clearing, municipal waste and composting operations. The grinders feature optional length feed tables, and the Thrown Object Deflectors (TOD) reduces the quantity and distance of thrown material.

Self-propelled track grinders are highly maneuverable and are able to work on uneven terrain jobsites and land-clearing projects. Vermeer horizontal grinders feature remote-controlled operation, our exclusive SmartGrind feed system and the patented Vermeer Duplex Drum.
