With the ability to maneuver around land-clearing jobsites without the need for additional support equipment, the self-propelled Vermeer HG400TX horizontal grinder can be controlled by a wireless remote control that allows the operator to control most operating functions from a distance up to 300 feet. A 440-horsepower Caterpillar C13 ACERT diesel engine powers the new Vermeer horizontal grinder’s exclusive duplex drum, which features eight hammers and 16 cutters. The reversible hammers and cutter blocks last nearly twice as long as single-sided designs. For operating safety and efficiency, Vermeer’s SmartGrind feature stops and reverses material from feeding into the hammermill when engine speed drops below an efficient operating range.
