HG6800TX Horizontal Grinder

Built for land clearing and pipeline right-of-way operations.



The HG6800TX horizontal grinder offers a high-horsepower engine on a tracked machine with a compact design. Featuring 950 hp (708 kW) in a 92,000-lb (41,730.5-kg) class, and an infeed design designed specifically for feeding larger materials such as whole trees and large stumps, the new grinder is built to power through tough materials with less operator interaction.
