b2ap3_thumbnail_electric_horizontal.jpgConsidering the Pros and Cons of Going Electric (An overview of the benefits and drawbacks of owning an electric tub grinder or horizontal grinder)

Little doubt the key advantage of diesel power over electric for your tub grinder or horizontal grinder is mobility. But if your grinder can operate in a fixed location, and you have a facility with or capable of upgrading to 460V 60 Hz 3 phase,

Choosing the Right Tub Grinder

This is a brief introduction to tub grinders and some of the factors you should be considering when planning to purchase a new or used tub grinder.

Tub grinders have been around for roughly 30 years and are aptly named for the large round tub or infeed.  Tub grinders rely on gravity and tub rotation to feed material into the hammermill at the bottom of the tub which performs the grinding function.

We can see in the photo how damaged the tip is. Normal operation of a grinder with minimal contaminants ( Common Contaminants ) would not cause bolts to break free and eject the hammer tip in such a way.

Introduction to Colored Mulch

Producing colored mulch can be a great way to add new products to your existing operation, grow your customer base and maximize profits.  If you already own a grinder and/or screening equipment, then the upfront investment to produce colored mulch is minimal, and the opportunity to improve your bottom line can be significant.

financingWhen talking to customers, many seem to have a common goal; pay off all their loans.  In their minds this is when they achieve financial freedom and wealth.  Although we would all like to be debt free it is not typically how you can maximize your profit and overall wealth. If you have access to affordable debt financing with reasonable interest rates, financing your equipment, even when you have cash on hand, is often a great way to increase your overall returns.
