Enhanced Grinder

Vermeer has enhanced its HG6000TX track undercarriage horizontal grinder. A new dolly transport system, or DT6, replaces the need for a drop-deck trailer. The operator tracks the grinder onto the dolly using the radio remote control. Four hydraulically driven pins secure the machine to the dolly. The stabilizers can be extended to lift the grinder fifth wheel plate to match the tractor plate height. The dolly features an anti-lock braking system and air-ride suspension. The suspension provides 7 inches of ground clearance. A longer load-out conveyor allows the grinder to load over the side of an open-top trailer. The ground speed of the HG6000TX has been increased as well, allowing for faster moves and keeping pace with loading equipment. It is powered by a 755 hp Caterpillar C18 Tier 4i/Stage IIIB engine.
