The all-new Tigercat 6900 grinder premiered at CONEXPO last year along with the 6050 carbonator – both machines are part of Tigercat’s new Material Processing range.
The Tigercat 6900 horizontal grinder is a heavy-duty upswing grinder designed for maximum production. The 6900 is built for extreme duty and long-life utilising only the highest quality components. It is made with the same build quality and components that Tigercat’s forestry range is renowned for.
The grinder outputs maximum mulch production thanks to its high processing capacity upswing motor. Feeding of both long and short material is easy and productive due to the adjustable in-feed angle.
The open discharge system includes a single discharge conveyor, and the open bottom allows for clean operation and easy service.
Easy maintenance is always a focus area of Tigercat machines, and the grinder is no exception. A split hog box opens for full access to rotor and screens. Anvil and screens are also hydraulically retractable.
Operator controls includes an easy to access electronic control system with colour LCD screen interface for machine monitoring and function adjustment. A radio remote control is used for primary machine operating functions. A convenient storage compartment for tools elevates to position for easy access.
Other standard equipment includes Tigercat’s RemoteLog telematics system and LogOnTM local wifi machine monitoring system.
The 6900 grinder is extremely versatile with the bolt-on hog box and feed conveyor assembly.
Metal can be effectively removed with optional large diameter magnetic head pulley and optional over band magnet.
Other options include a dolly system, three axle, air compressor kit and work lights.
This machine will be available towards the second half of 2021 and will likely be showcased at AUSTimber.
