Tub Grinder Stretches Capacity Limits

The 1600 Tub Grinder, with a hammer mill nearly 6 feet long, can grind 10-foot stumps at what Morbark calls "unprecedented production rates." With a tub diameter of 11 feet 2 inches, it can be fed with a 13-yard bucket. The discharge belt is 60 inches wide. Changing from a standard 22-hammer pattern to a 30-hammer pattern takes about an hour.
