CBI debuts 6800CT horizontal grinder
Latest high-production grinder makes live premiere at NEFP 2018, May 11th in Vermont, along with a range of machines and attachments from CBI and Terex Ecotec
Guests at the 2018 Northeastern Forest Products Equipment Expo had the first-ever look at CBI's newest horizontal grinder: the Magnum Force 6800CT. CBI premiered the 6800CT along with the TSC 80T Tracked Conveyor May 11-12 at the Northeastern Forest Products Equipment Expo in Vermont. CBI equipment was paired with Terex Ecotec's TWH 226 Material Handler, showing the complementary value of both Terex Corporation brands in a single operation.
Relentlessly improving on the 6800BT's design, the 6800CT's 190-degree screening area lets production rates surge beyond 200 tons an hour. According to CBI, the naturally efficient design of the new grinder's offset helix rotor minimizes kinetic energy loss from each strike, requiring less power to rotate while evenly distributing wear and outproducing the competition. Ripping material right through it, this machine processes land clearing debris, pallets, clean industrial waste, stumps, logs, and whole trees as fast as it can be loaded, giving owners command over intense production deadlines.
The CBI & Ecotec Booth at NFPE featured seven other pieces of logging industry and wood waste recycling equipment: a 5800BT Horizontal Grinder, a ChipMax 484BT Whole Tree Chipper, a TSC80T Tracked Conveyor, a TWH 226 Waste Handler, an XP Log & Stump Screw, an XLP Log & Stump Screw, along with a static display of the CBI Ripper Tooth. In total, there were six live demos during show hours with two static displays of the XLP Screw and Ripper Tooth.
"The 6800CT has been designed completely with the end user in mind, including serious production and maintenance upgrades," said Art Murphy, Director of Sales and Marketing at Terex Environmental Equipment. "We paired the 6800CT with a new TSC80T Tracked Conveyor, the first in an array of stacking conveyor options that CBI plans to offer North American customers. From our attachment line, we showcased the new Grizzly Tooth ripper attachment as a static display."
CBI & Ecotec will be exhibiting in Germany at IFAT 2018, from May 14th - 18th and also in Virginia at Expo Richmond May 18th - 19th.
5800BT Horizontal Grinder - This portable and powerful horizontal grinder was developed to feature the same principles of the high-production 6800BT but is purpose-built for contractors dealing with transportation restrictions.
484BT ChipMax Whole Tree Chipper - This compact and reliable whole tree chipper consistently out-produces the competition by up to 50 percent on a daily basis and has a high-production capability of 120-plus tons per hour.
TSC80T Tracked Conveyor - The TSC 80T is a self-powered 80ft tracked stockpiler with impressive features and conveying capacities. The track in and out design lets operators track the machine out, fold to working position, and start conveying material.
TWH226 Material Handler - Industry professionals rely on the TWH 226 Material Handler machine because its flexibility and speed are ideal for the recycling business. Its reliability, vertically-movable cab, and high-lifting capacities throughout the entire working range prepare machine operators for any challenge.
Log & Stump Screw (XP & XLP Models) - The CBI Log and Stump Screw is designed to split oversized butt logs, pole wood, and stumps into more manageable-sized material to be further processed into firewood, wood fuel or other value-added finished products.
Ripper Tooth - The CBI Grizzly Tooth's best in class shank thickness, AR 400 Steel plates, and aggressive angle make it a violent solution for clearing land and digging up roots. This attachment is built to tear through dense material and frozen Earth during the winter months, while outlasting anything on the market.
