Mobile Screening & Crushing Ltd (MSC) offers CBI—a Terex brand—as part of their product portfolio. "CBI’s line of horizontal grinders and industrial woodchippers are ideal for the forestry, recycling, and organics markets. The products meet the rising demand of environmental recycling markets in New Zealand," says Catrina Quinn, MSC’s marketing manager.

CBI 6800CT (horizontal grinder)

The 6800CT horizontal grinder features improvements on the previous 6800BT’s model design and has a 15% larger screening area, wrapping more than 190 degrees around the rotor and allowing production rates to surge beyond 200 tonnes an hour, says MSC.

Supported by a larger shaft and bearings and an optional 1200hp CAT C32, the engine powers the forged drum rotor through some of the toughest materials. The design of CBI’s offset helix rotor minimises energy loss from each strike and distributes material evenly across the 24 hammers, requiring less power and fuel use. Some of its key features include:

  • Various hammer inserts
  • Rotor: shaft: eight inches (203mm), width: 60" (1524mm), diameter: 40" (1016mm), RPMs: 1440
  • Replace-A-Face hammer system allows the end user to swap out the face independent of the rest of the hammer for quick, easy, and inexpensive maintenance
  • Hog box opens in seconds
  • Wedge lock secures upper hog box
  • Sloped decks deter debris accumulation
  • Metal Detection System protects the machine from tramp metal
  • High-torque feed roller. Speed sensors monitor the feed system’s speed in real-time to maintain a continuous and efficient pace of grinding.
  • Recognised as a top mobile horizontal grinder in the market for land clearing, wood recycling, and organic composting applications
  • Designed for land clearing companies and yard waste processors
  • Production capacity of up to 200 tonnes per hour
  • Whether it’s whole trees, storm debris, regrind, C&D, the CBI 6800 will process material at a low cost per tonne
  • The four-inch thick, high strength rotor core is shear pin protected
  • Features a high torque, hydrostatic feed system, PT Tech hydraulic clutch, and a choice of two CAT power plants
