Horizontal grinders are purpose built to process brush and logs into reusable products. The industrial-grade machine can also be used in the recycling of storm debris, construction and demolition waste, asphalt shingles, and other mixed woody materials.
Materials are fed into the machine where an internal mechanism grinds materials into small after products.
Typically, horizontal grinders are mounted on tracks to enable them to move easily around job sites.
Powered by diesel engines ranging as high as 1,000 horsepower—and also available with electric power—these grinders can hand heavy volumes of material. Many have electronic control systems. These automate the processing of materials and improve the efficiency of the operations in which they are employed.
