Wood Grinders

For more than a decade, Vermeer has led the wood waste industry with horizontal grinders that are built with the features you need to meet your customers’ product requirements. Our horizontal grinder lineup efficiently transforms logs and other organic materials into valuable end-products.

  • The patented duplex drum features reversible hammers and tips that simplify maintenance and nearly double wear life.
  • An optional chip drum on select models provides the flexibility to produce a uniform chipped product rather than traditional shredded material.
  • Our variety of screen choices helps you maximize productivity while meeting end-product sizing specifications.
  • Remote-controlled track-driven grinders provide convenient mobility on your jobsite.
Tub Grinders

Organic materials come in many shapes and sizes, and Vermeer tub grinders are your tool for high-volume regrinding, as well as processing of difficult wood waste and biomass material. Utilizing the patented duplex drum cutting system and multiple screen size options, you have the versatility to meet your customers’ end-product needs.

  • With the optional grapple loader, Vermeer tub grinders can help make your processing site more efficient and self-sustaining.
  • A remote control provides real-time machine performance data that helps maximize productivity.
  • A unique BioScreen kit allows non-woody biomass material, such as hay or ag residue, to pass efficiently through the grinder without deteriorating the end product.
Trommel Screen

Screening your material provides more consistent sizing to help you better meet your customers’ needs, while also maximizing your end product value. Vermeer trommel screens were designed to minimize setup time and make maintenance easy so you can focus on getting to work. With an extensive list of drum and screen options, Vermeer provides you with the right tools to get the job done.

  • A quick-change drum design makes drum removal simple, and removable side panels or hinged doors (depending on the model) provide easy access for maintenance and cleaning.
  • Put your end product where you need it with conveyors that are easily adjusted, as well as the option of a third product conveyor on select models.
  • Low feed hoppers make Vermeer trommel screens convenient to load.
Compost Solutions

From soil amendment to erosion control, compost is utilized in a variety of applications and plays an important role in today’s world. Compost turners introduce oxygen into the compost pile, helping speed the decomposition process. Because composting sites can vary, Vermeer offers different styles of compost turners to meet your specific needs.

  • Patented elevating face turners lift and tumble compost material up and over the top of the machine to stack it behind or convey it to the side for continuous stacking.
  • Drum-style windrow turners feature a horizontal steel drum with flails that aerate the compost windrow.
  • Vermeer drum-style turners are available in self-propelled, self-powered towable or PTO-driven towable models.
Forestry Tractor

From forest thinning to right-of-way preparation or other land-clearing and maintenance projects, Vermeer forestry tractors offer a solution built with operator ease, reliability and serviceability top of mind. With the option of either the FT100 or the FT300, Vermeer has a machine for your land-clearing needs – with the reputation to stand behind it.

  • With an option of steel or low ground pressure tracks, the FT300 forestry tractor can meet your site conditions and needs.
  • The mulcher head on both models features a ringed rotor that helps guide material into the cutting tips for a clean cutting path and consistent depth of cut.
  • The optimized hydraulic system on the FT300 is designed to operate below its rated capacity for extended life of hydraulic components.
Whole Tree Chipper

Your clearing and logging operations create wood waste, and Vermeer supplies the equipment to help you turn that into a valuable end product. Vermeer whole tree chippers are designed to chip logs and slash, or your dedicated fuel crop, producing wood chips that can be sold.

  • With multiple knife options, one machine can provide different chip sizes to meet end-use requirements.
  • A skidder grab allows the whole tree chipper to be moved around the jobsite.
  • The drum and discharge chute are designed with bolt-in replaceable wear parts to help extend machine life and make maintenance more convenient.
