Building on more than a decade of grinder research and development, the Vermeer TG7000 tub grinder packages innovation and power for large land clearing projects and organic/wood waste processing applications.Available withtwo 3412 E CAT twin turbo charged engines options: an 860 hp (641 kW) and 1000 hp (746 kW). The TG7000 features a tub design that reduces the chance of material bridging and helps to increase productivity.
Benefit: Tub is 13'(3.9m) diameter at the top. 10'(3m) inside diameter at the base, and 56.3" (140 cm) deep to allow loading of large amounts of material and reduced bridging. Bottom of tub flares out, allowing the hammermill to cut under the vertical wall of the tub, reducing bridging and allowing steady feeding of material. This highly effective placement of the mill reduces the amount of material build up causing excess wear on the table and tub. The high rotor exposure of 8" (20.3 cm) means more aggressive hammermill cuts to help provide continuous grinding and a high rate of production. Four 6" (15.2 cm) tub wall agitators move material to help reduce bridging and increase production. Tub rotation is driven by two low speed, high torque, hydraulic motors and positive chain drive for greater durability. Vertical tub walls are 1/4" (.95 cm) thick T1 steel. The tub floor is 1/2" (1.27 cm) thick T-1 steel.
Feature: Duplex Drum Hammermill
Benefit: A 31" (71cm) cutter tip diameter and 66" long mill cuts from tub wall to past the center of the 10' (3m) tub. This patented design is intended to decrease daily maintenance.
Feature: 860 or 1000 HP 3412 E Caterpillar Engine Options
Benefit: The twin turbo charged, electronically fuel injected engine provides maximum horsepower with exceptional fuel economy. Extra large cooling system allows the TG7000 to work longer in dirty conditions. A high capacity radiator allows the machine to work in tough conditions with reduced risk of over heating. The reliable, durable engine is backed by a Caterpillar worldwide service network.
Feature: PT Tech Wet Clutch
Benefit: Gear reduction clutch offers high productivity with a balance of increased torque to the mill. The clutch is designed to handle up to 1000 HP. The clutch runs in oil to stay cooler and lengthen its life. Clutch engagement is maintained by oil pressure eliminating the need for clutch adjustment. This wet clutch results in high efficiency due to limited slippage. Comes with a 1 yr or 1000hrs warranty.
Feature: Undermill Conveyor
Benefit: The continuos flow conveyor system is designed to handle more production with less clogging opportunities. Discharge height capability of 17 feet. Using this single belt design, eliminates the typical transition area between the load-out belt and under mill conveyor.
Feature: Transport Package
Benefit: 10' triple axle spread for maximum allowed weight - 20,000lb axle rating. It has a 85,000 lb approximate gross weight w/loader for transportation in all states.
