Vermeer HG6000 Tier 4  

June 29,
2011, Pella IA – Vermeer Corporation has redesigned the HG6000 horizontal
grinder with new design enhancements and a Tier 4i/Stage IIIB engine to meet
wood-waste processors’ needs for productivity and government emission
regulations. The HG6000 is powered by a Cat C18 Tier 4i/Stage IIIB engine that
meets all U.S., Canadian, and European Union tier regulations while producing
755 horsepower (563 kW), a 20% increase in horsepower over the previous Tier 3
engine.

Other
performance enhancements include a dual-screen system that allows screens to be
mixed and matched to attain the desired end product. The screens are reversible
and interchangeable to obtain the maximum usage of the wear portion. The screen
support can be adjusted to match clearance from the hammer tips with the type
of material being processed. The transition area between the anvil and screen
is eliminated, allowing for more throughput. The thickness of the mill box
sidewalls in front of the mill are increased, and replacement of the plates
between the end of the mill and sidewall is easier.

Improved
site maneuverability and a smaller turning radius were achieved by moving the
fifth wheel pin under the 20 foot (6.1 m) long infeed. This design change also
allows for enhanced weight dispersal for better tow vehicle traction and
reduces the load on trailer axles.
