Recycling & FOrestry equipment

Tub Grinders

Built for productivity.

Designed to handle stumps, regrind, and high-volume wood recycling and mulch operations Vermeer tub grinders are loaded with innovative features to help improve efficiency and jobsite safety.

  • Patented duplex drum cutting system optimizes cutting performance and simplifies maintenance.
  • Patented Thrown Object Restraint System (TORS) reduces quantity and distance of thrown objects.

Vermeer tub grinders also offer an optional grapple loader and a unique bioscreen kit that allows non-woody biomass material, such as hay or ag residue, to pass efficiently through the grinder without deteriorating the end product.

Horizontal Grinders

Efficiently process logs and other organic materials into valuable end products.

Vermeer horizontal grinders are built tough and offered in a variety of configurations to suit large land-clearing, municipal waste and composting operations. The grinders feature a variety of feed table length options, a large range in horsepower, a patented duplex drum and thrown object deflectors (TOD) to help reduce the quantity and distance of thrown material.

Whole Tree Chippers

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

As the push toward renewable fuels accelerates, governments and industries are recognizing the advantages of using wood chips as a source for power generation. With the whole tree chipper, Vermeer offers customers a powerful, whole tree solution for producing wood chips.

For those in the logging industry, whole tree chippers represent an exciting opportunity for expanding their operations by utilizing all parts of a tree. Even the leftover slash can now be picked up and chipped to provide another revenue stream.

Trommel Screens

Industrial screening equipment designed to fit your production needs.

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

Vermeer trommel screens were designed for efficiency and ease of maintenance. The large feed hopper sits low to the ground, making it easy to feed material into the screening drum with a variety of loading equipment.

  • Removable side panels expose the full length of the drum screen, providing for easy maintenance and cleaning.
  • Put the finished product where you need it – loading directly into a truck or stockpiling using the optional radial stacking conveyor on select models that swings a full 200 degrees.
  • Avoid jams with both the drum and feed conveyor being reversible.
  • With the ability to tension the screen around the drum, operators can add rigidity to the screens. This design allows the use of smaller gauge wire, ultimately increasing the open area of the screen to help improve productivity

Vermeer trommel screens are designed to minimize setup time and be easy and convenient to service. With an extensive list of options these machines can be manufactured to fit your specific needs.

Compost Turners

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

Composting is an important aspect of waste management throughout the world. Product from compost operations can be seen in various applications such as:

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

Vermeer compost equipment is designed to process up to 4000 cu yd (3058.2 cu m) of compost per hour depending on the type and size of the turner. Drum-style windrow turners feature a horizontal steel drum with flails that aerate the compost windrow.
