Nov. 3, 2009 – Vermeer Corporation has expanded its line of grinders with the addition of the Vermeer
HG8000TX horizontal grinder with track undercarriage. This is a fully mobile horizontal grinder that allows the
operator to efficiently move the machine around jobsites, whether it is for
land clearing, compost processing, or forest thinning. Equipped with 28-inch
(71.1 cm) double- or triple-grouser track pads, the HG8000TX produces only 12
psi (0.8 bar) of pressure in soft ground conditions. The undercarriage features a rigid-mounted, reinforced boxed
track frame, and the idlers are sealed for life, providing maintenance-free
rollers that are sealed from possible contamination. The tracks provide increased traction in unstable ground
conditions, providing access to remote areas or transport across obstacles such
as shallow creeks or ditches, soft sandy or wet soil, and moderate
inclines. The HG8000TX is powered
by a 1050-hp (783-kW) Tier 2 CAT diesel engine and offers a large infeed
opening, with a millbox opening of 50 inches (127 cm) high by 71.5 inches (182
cm) wide.
