SCREEN USA Inc.
Best known for its wide range of screening equipment – including trommel, shaker, and star screens- SCREEN USA recently introduced a small horizontal wood grinder specifically geared for small volume applications.
The company’s “Hammerhead”Horizontal grinder are being marketed to composters, landscapers, landscape supply houses, utility companies, municipalities, and mulch manufacturers.
“It’s not a stump grinder,” explains Rick Cohen, owner and president of the Smyrna, GA company, “It’s strictly for grinding pallets, brush, and wood 9”- 10” diameter and smaller.
SCREEN USA, which started in 1973, has built its reputation on manufacturing niche products for the screening industry, and Cohen says the Hammerheadhorizontal grinder is a niche product for the grinding industry.
It is the first grinder offered by the company.
“We’re trying to cater to customers who have been asking for a www.screenusa.net but did not need the huge $400,000 to $500,000 grinders,” he says.
The SCREEN USAHammerhead is offered in a 160 HP model and 240 HP model. The machines come standard with Flexxaire reversing radiator fans to help prevent overheating and clogging. It also features a variable speed feeder and is wide enough – 4’-5 inches- to handle pallets. A radio remote control and magnetic head pulley are standard.
Cohen notes that the unit is extremely portable and can be pulled behind most small dump trucks or utility trucks. “You can take it almost anywhere and set it up in five minutes and be ready to grind,” he says.
While other manufacturers boast of machine having 700 and 1,050 horsepower engines, SCREEN USA is extremely content with the efficiency and portability of the Hammerhead horizontal grinder.
“We don’t have many competitors because everybody is making larger grinders.” “We decided to promote the smaller grinders with a price tag that landscapers and composters can afford.
The manufacturing of colored mulch appears to be a hot market for our Horizontal grindersat this time. The grinders come equipped with an optional mulch colorizer which allows the customers to color their mulch for a very economical price.
