Magnum Force 8800 Horizontal Grinder

CBI has unveiled its biggest, most powerful, portable grinder ever produced. On portability, CBI president Anders Ragnarsson, says “It’s not as simple as just throwing wheels on a horizontal hog. For two decades, CBI has engineered equipment that is designed as much for the road (or off road, depending on the model) as it is for aggressively processing material. In this case, the tracks on the 8800 get this grinder to sites that can be difficult in terms of terrain so that it can perform a critical function.” The Magnum Force 8800 features over 1,200 hp, and is designed to process large amounts of full-length logs, brush, stumps, telephone poles, railroad ties, etc. A unique clamshell hogbox opens in seconds with the push of a button – giving full access to the rotor and quick-change screens, and extra-thick shear pins protect the screens and anvil. A large-capacity feed hopper easily handles full-length trees or large material surges with no problem, and the upper-feed roller system and chain-feed conveyor are powered by two heavy-duty planetary and high-torque motors. The 8800’s wide discharge conveyor facilitates high-volume throughput and folds for transport, and a proactive metal-detection and release system provide maximum protection for working parts. Impact measuring sensors on these units detect if a rotor tooth strikes tramp metal, and then communicate with the machine’s main control system which reverses the feed, throttles down the engine, and depending on the impact, hydraulically opens the anvil/grate frame assembly at an extremely high rate of speed, allowing the ejection of the tramp metal. Some other key features include: a forged steel rotor that features teeth that can be adjusted for efficient primary and secondary grinding; CBI’s Replace-A-Face system which allows for easy and inexpensive hammer repair; IntelliGrind technology which yields feed speeds that vary automatically based on engine load; and an optional modem communications system which provides for real-time system diagnostics, analysis and operating program adjustments.

Three different rotors increase machine versatility

The Magnum Force 6400-T is able to accept three different rotors – forged, solid steel, and chipper – and can swap rotors in just a day’s time. You can go from making high quality mulch from trees and stumps, to chipping stemwood into chips in custom sizes ranging from 2 to 30 mm, to grinding highly contaminated C&D or railroad ties with the tie plates attached, just by swapping rotors and screens.

Swapping rotors on grinder makes it more versatile

What makes the Magnum Force 6400-T particularly unique is its ability to accept three different rotors – forged, solid steel, and chipper – and its ability to swap rotors in just a day’s time. You can go from making high quality mulch from trees and stumps, to chipping stemwood into chips in custom sizes ranging from 2 to 30 mm, to grinding highly contaminated C&D or railroad ties with the tie plates attached, just by swapping rotors and screens. “We’ve found that several of our customers have their grinding needs change depending on the time of year, or the client base that they have in their area. For six months, they may need to process construction and demolition debris, but then they may get a customer that needs to have a 100 acre tract of land cleared, or a customer that needs to make a chip for fuel,” notes Mark Taitz, director of business development for Continental Biomass Industries (CBI). “While it may be cost prohibitive to have two or three separate grinders, keeping a spare rotor in stock for opportunities as they become available is not only economical, but it allows our customers to be competitive in the marketplace no matter what the job requirement.” In travel mode, the 6400-T is only 12.44 metres (40 feet 9 inches) long, 2.99 m (9 feet 9 inches) wide, and 3.82 m (12 feet 5 inches) high, and weighs about 80,000 pounds.
