Vermeer HG4000TX Horizontal Grinder

The Vermeer HG40000TX horizontal grinder offers a variety of configurations to suit large land clearing municipal waste and composting operations

Maintain minimal disruption to the environment yet maximise production with less maintenance with the first Vermeer Horizontal Grinder to arrive in New Zealand.

Today’s land-clearing contractors require equipment that can get the job done effectively and efficiently while maintaining minimal disruption to the natural environment and keeping projects on schedule for the work that follows. 

Vermeer, an American industrial and agricultural equipment manufacturing company, understands the challenges customers face and with its complete line of forestry products, it can help customers face challenges such as clearing residential development, harvesting fuel crops, producing animal bedding, or thinning forest.

Vermeer says its HG4000TX horizontal grinder is built tough and offers a variety of configurations to suit large land clearing municipal waste and composting operations.

The grinders feature optional length feed tables and Thrown Object Deflectors (TOD) that reduces the quantity and distance of thrown debris.

Self-propelled track grinders are highly manoeuvrable and are controlled by a wireless remote, which enables it to work on uneven terrain jobsites and land-clearing projects. Increased productivity can be achieved through Vermeer’s exclusive Smart Grind system that automatically controls grinding speed based on engine rpm levels.

Improved cutting performance can also attained using the patented Duplex double drum system with reversible hammers and cutter blocks that extend maintenance intervals and nearly double the replacement wear life.

Vermeer horizontal grinders, tub grinders, brush chippers, and stump cutters allow contractors to process wood waste into
useful mulch, biofuel, or compost.

AB Equipment trained dealer personnel are with the customers all the way to provide parts and service throughout the company’s 18 branches nationwide for the entire range of Vermeer products. These programmes include Planned Maintenance, Unplanned Maintenance, Major Overhauls and Refurbishment, Operator Training, and Total Fleet Management.

The next step for the Vermeer HG4000TX horizontal grinder is for it to be taken on a
road trip nationwide and demonstrated at selected locations.

Nationwide demo days featuring the Vermeer HG4000TX are limited. For more information, contact AB Equipment on 021 367 889 or the local AB Equipment branch or visit
