Compost Turners - CT670
Supplied by: Vermeer
Feature: Patented Elevating Face
Benefit: Effective way to introduce oxygen into the compost pile. Completely transfers the compost from ground level to help ensure proper aeration of the pile. The elevating face lifts and tumbles the material through the windrow to improve composting and air flow. The teeth are held in place using grade 5 and grade 8 3/8" bolts. The grade 5 bolt acts as a shear point for the tooth should teeth come in contact with large contaminates in pile such as rocks and metals. The grade 8 bolt will retain the tooth to the machine, so as to not lose the tooth in the pile.
Feature: Rear Vanes
Benefit: Help direct material flow off the face and back into a windrow. This feature helps keep the windrows narrow in size and does not require additional equipment to go back in and reform after turning.
Feature: Cummins Engine
Benefit: Self-contained engine package on the turner provides efficient horsepower transfer to the elevating face. The hydraulics required to operate the tongue and face, functions are on board the turner as well. No hydraulic hook-up or additional moving parts, such as a PTO, are needed to operate the turner. This allows the turner to be pulled using tow vehicles such as a low horsepower tractor or wheel-loader.
Feature: Pivoting Tongue
Benefit: Allows the operator to position turner behind the tow vehicle for transporting around the yard, between the windrows, or along roadways. Using the remote, the operator can aslo swing the tongue out, positioning the turner over the windrow and the tow vehicle along the side and clear of the pile during processing.
Feature: Elevating face lift cylinder
Benefit: This allows the operator to position the face according to ground conditions to help completely turn the compost pile thus providing maximum aeration of the compost.
Feature: Tethered Remote
Benefit: Provides the operator with full controls of the compost turner from the convenience of the tow vehicle. Once the engine is started all operation can be done via remote.
