Introducing The All-New Vermeer HG400 Horizontal Grinder

March 2024

Vermeer has announced the launch of the HG400 horizontal grinder for customers in international emerging markets. Designed as an entry-level, small horizontal grinder, it aims to redefine industry standards for simplicity, efficiency, and reliability. The HG400 efficiently handles a variety of materials including compost, pallets, construction debris, logs and green waste, making it suitable for industries such as mulching and recycling.

“At Vermeer, we consistently strive for innovation, and our latest product, the HG400, exemplifies this commitment,” stated Colm Rafferty, Vice President of Developing Markets at Vermeer. “This compact yet powerful machine embodies our longstanding tradition of not just producing machines, but providing practical solutions that empower our customers. We’ve received extremely positive feedback from our pilot customers. In fact, an early adopter from the mulch production industry reported that the HG400 has transformed their operations.”

The HG400 is powered by a 97 kW (130 hp) Cummins Tier 3 engine and is available in both trailer and stationary configurations. The unit is equipped with a 2.1 m (7 ft) manually folding discharge conveyor for efficient transportability. Furthermore, the HG400’s convenient dual-screen side-load design allows for quick and efficient product sizing adjustments. 

The HG400 is designed with wide flared walls and a lowerable infeed tailgate to accommodate bulky and lengthy materials. Its steel conveyor, equipped with two drive rollers, effectively guides materials into the grinder. This unique design enhances the machine’s versatility, allowing it to handle challenging materials with ease.

The HG400 also features the Vermeer Plus+1 control system, with four different speed options for more precise feed control. An optional wireless remote control is available for enhanced operating efficiency.

The HG400 will be available in select countries across Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific, and certain European nations. The introduction of the HG400 is supported by the extensive network of Vermeer dealers.
