Recycling & FOrestry equipment

Tub Grinders

Vermeer tub grinders are specifically designed to tackle stumps, regrind, and handle high-volume wood recycling and mulch operations. These grinders come equipped with a range of innovative features that aim to enhance efficiency and ensure safety at the worksite.

One notable feature is the patented duplex drum cutting system, which optimizes cutting performance while also simplifying maintenance procedures. This system allows for efficient and effective grinding of materials.

To further enhance safety, Vermeer tub grinders incorporate the patented Thrown Object Restraint System (TORS). This advanced system minimizes the quantity and distance of objects that are thrown during the grinding process, reducing the risk of accidents and improving overall safety.

In addition to these features, Vermeer tub grinders offer optional accessories like a grapple loader. This loader enables convenient loading and handling of materials, enhancing productivity and ease of use.

Another unique feature is the bioscreen kit, which is available as an option. This kit enables efficient processing of non-woody biomass materials, such as hay or agricultural residue, without compromising the quality of the end product. This versatility allows for a wider range of materials to be processed effectively.

With their comprehensive range of features and capabilities, Vermeer tub grinders provide an efficient and safe solution for handling stumps, regrind, and high-volume wood recycling and mulch operations.

Horizontal Grinders

Vermeer horizontal grinders are designed to efficiently convert logs and various organic materials into valuable end products. These robust grinders are available in multiple configurations to cater to the needs of large land-clearing, municipal waste, and composting operations.

Equipped with a range of options, Vermeer horizontal grinders offer various feed table lengths, allowing flexibility to accommodate different materials and processing requirements. The grinders also come with a wide horsepower range, ensuring ample power for effective grinding.

One standout feature of Vermeer horizontal grinders is the patented duplex drum. This innovative drum design enhances the grinding performance, enabling efficient processing of the materials while maintaining durability. Additionally, the grinders are equipped with thrown object deflectors (TOD) to minimize the amount and distance of materials that are thrown during operation, enhancing safety and reducing the risk of accidents.

With their durable construction and versatile configurations, Vermeer horizontal grinders are a reliable solution for efficiently processing logs and other organic materials. They provide valuable end products for a variety of applications, making them an excellent choice for different industries and operations.

Whole Tree Chippers

The Vermeer whole tree chipper offers a powerful, whole-tree solution.

In response to the growing emphasis on renewable fuels, both governments and industries are increasingly acknowledging the benefits of utilizing wood chips for power generation. Vermeer addresses this demand by offering customers a powerful whole tree chipper, enabling the efficient production of high-quality wood chips.

For professionals in the logging industry, whole tree chippers present an exciting opportunity to expand their operations by maximizing the utilization of every part of a tree. Even the previously overlooked leftover slash can now be gathered and chipped, creating an additional revenue stream and minimizing waste.

With Vermeer’s whole tree chipper, businesses can capitalize on the growing need for wood chips as a sustainable fuel source. This powerful solution ensures optimal productivity and helps meet the evolving demands of the industry.

Trommel Screens

Industrial screening equipment designed to fit your production needs.

Featuring a large feed hopper positioned low to the ground, Vermeer trommel screens allow for easy material feeding using various loading equipment. The removable side panels expose the entire length of the drum screen, enabling effortless maintenance and cleaning procedures.

To enhance versatility, select models of Vermeer trommel screens offer an optional radial stacking conveyor that can swing a full 200 degrees. This feature allows you to place the finished product directly into a truck or create stockpiles as needed, providing flexibility in material handling.

To prevent jams, both the drum and feed conveyor of the trommel screens are reversible, ensuring smooth operation and efficient screening.

The design of Vermeer trommel screens allows for tensioning the screen around the drum, enabling operators to add rigidity. This feature allows the use of smaller gauge wire, which increases the open area of the screen, ultimately improving productivity.

Vermeer trommel screens are engineered to minimize setup time and provide easy and convenient servicing. With a wide range of customizable options, these machines can be manufactured to meet your specific requirements, ensuring they are a perfect fit for your operation.

Compost Turners

Vermeer compost turners introduce oxygen into the compost pile, helping to speed the decomposition process.

Composting is a vital component of waste management worldwide, and the products derived from compost operations find diverse applications, including:

  • Topdressing for yards and golf courses
  • Compost socks, which are mesh tubes filled with compost used to slow and filter water on construction sites, effectively capturing soil and reducing erosion.
  • Erosion control on disturbed areas such as construction sites, development projects (including planting), and exposed stream banks.
  • Organic fertilizer or soil conditioners.

Vermeer offers compost equipment specifically designed to handle the processing of compost, with the capacity to process up to 4000 cubic yards (3058.2 cubic meters) of compost per hour, depending on the type and size of the turner. The compost turners feature a drum-style windrow design, incorporating a horizontal steel drum equipped with flails. These flails aerate the compost windrow, promoting efficient decomposition.

Vermeer compost turners are instrumental in maximizing the composting process, ensuring optimal oxygen flow and accelerating the breakdown of organic materials. They provide essential support in various industries, offering efficient and effective solutions for compost production.
