HG8000 horizontal grinder
The HG8000 horizontal grinder offers an extremely large infeed opening and is powered by a 1,050-hp (783 kW) Tier III Cat diesel engine. With a millbox opening of 50 inches (127 cm) high by 71.5 inches (182 cm) wide, the HG8000 allows operators to load a higher volume of raw material and grind materials usually reserved for tub grinders. To maximize productivity, an exclusive SmartGrind feature stops and reverses material from feeding into the patented Duplex Drum when engine rpm drops below an efficient operating range. The reversible hammers and cutter blocks on the HG8000’s Duplex Drum last nearly twice as long as single-sided designs, and machines are equipped with two screens that allow for countless combinations and end-product sizing.
