Vermeer - HG4000 Horizontal Grinders

Now with a 515 hp (384 kW) Tier 4 Final engine, the HG4000 has more power to meet your requirements. With proven performance and cost of operation top of mind, the HG4000 from Vermeer offers the features to help keep you working day-in and day-out. From green waste to pallets and scrap lumber, the HG4000 is built for tough processing with a wide infeed table, patented duplex drum or an optional chip drum. The optional on-board remote-controlled screen hoist allows operators to quickly change screens.

Features & Benefits


The patented Series II duplex drum offers proven cutting performance, and reversible hammers and tips can nearly double wear life and reduce daily maintenance.

Chip Drum

With an optional chip drum, operators can produce a consistently chipped end-product, rather than traditional shredded material, for uses such as biofuel.


The hinged, dual-screen design, along with multiple screen options, helps boost processing efficiency and offers flexibility in end-product sizing.

Smart Grind system

The patented Smart Grind system monitors engine RPM and adjusts grinding speed.

Ease of operation

Material loading is easier and more efficient with an open-ended, wide infeed table.

Thrown Object Deflector (TOD)

Reduce the amount and distance of thrown material debris, while also reducing interference when loading over-length material, with the thrown object deflector (TOD).
