Ease of Maintenance and Safety

The large diameter feed wheel allows easy access to the hammermill and the changeable screens with integral sloping feet. The wheel has free fall restrictors. When raised, the wheel is parked in an over center position against a safety stop with a hydraulically operated safety pin.

New innovations start with the large diameter infeed roll that is sensitive enough to permit grass clippings, brush, limbs, pallets, slabs, logs and stumps to be fed at variable speeds for continuous rather than batch feeding.

The New H-4060 Horizontal Grinder Includes:

  • Caterpillar 3412, 760 HP or 860 HP Diesel Engine
  • 40" Diameter "Double-Cut" Hammermill
  • 60" Wide Variable Speed Steel Infeed Belt

  • Dual Shear Protection for the Hammermill
  • Remote Control
  • Magnetic Head Pulley for Metal Seperation
  • Fold Down Infeed Tailgate for Increased Bed Length and Closes for "Hopper" Style Feeding.
  • Enclosed Engine Cover with Dual Access Doors for Ease of Maintenance.

Double- Cut Hammermill

Engineered with several cutting surfaces at varying depths which virtually elimates the frequent jamming characteristic of more conventional type grinders.  Rotating downward, the double cut hammermill momentarily wedges the incoming material securely between the cutting heads and the shredder feet, which limits the depth of cut preventing wide items from lodging between the screen and the hammermill, providing a more efficient cut with a self-adjusting hydraulic clutch. In contrast, shredders using an upward rotating hammermill are reported to be significantly less efficient.
