Attachment allows Vermeer grinders to produce fuel chips

Vermeer Corp. has introduced an attachment for its horizontal grinders that will help customers produce biomass feedstock for this growing market. The Vermeer Fuel Chip Attachment offers customers more versatility, allowing the use of one machine to process wood waste into mulch one day and biomass the next-simply by changing out the cutting mechanism in a few hours. The fuel chip attachment helps customers enter the biomass market without tying up capital resources in a separate machine. Designed for use with Vermeer HG6000 or HG6000TX horizontal grinders equipped with the Series II Duplex Drum, the fuel chip attachment changes the action of the cutting drum from ripping and shredding to a chipping action-offering the ability to produce a more uniformly sized end product.
