- Model TG7000 Tier 2 - Tub Grinder



The TG7000 packs innovation and power for large land clearing projects and organic/wood waste processing applications. It processes through wood waste quickly with the exclusive Vermeer duplex drum to minimize maintenance, a PT tech wet clutch with microprocessor to automatically limit torque when necessary, and a patented cutting system outfitted with 11 hammers and 22 double-bolt cutter blocks. Optional climate-controlled cab and grapple loader makes the TG7000 a one-man operation to help reduce labor costs and increase jobsite efficiency.

  • Standard radio remote controls allow most machine functions to be operated from the convenience and comfort of a mobile loader.
  • Handle more material with the continuous undermill conveyor system that resists clogging.
  • Reduce quantity and distance of thrown objects with a low profile tub cover and rotor deflector. 

The Vermeer TG7000 tub grinder is proof of that. It’s loaded with a potent combination of innovative ideas and classic Vermeer features, all designed to make short work of your recycling and land-clearing projects. Waste just doesn’t last long when the TG7000 is on the job.

The demands of the industry have been rising steadily for years, so we’ve made sure the TG7000 stayed ahead of the game. Building on more than a decade of grinder research and development, we’ve packed this machine with the power to meet your toughest challenges.

The TG7000 uses our exclusive duplex drum, a patented cutting system that offers the latest hammer technology, the most convenient replacement procedures, and the performance you’re looking for. Eleven hammers and 22 double-bolt cutter blocks work together to increase your productivity and slash maintenance time.

Everything about the TG7000 has been designed for top performance. Every feature is here to help you do your job—and not one has been wasted.

Control panel. Providing a digital readout for the microprocessor and the CAT engine, the control panel gives the operator real time performance information and full instrumentation and diagnostic ports for monitoring systems and troubleshooting.

Optional cab and loader. An optional loader with a 29.5’ (9 m) reach has the ability to lift materials up 12,000 lb (5403 kg) with a multi-tine grapple. The climate controlled cab provides exceptional visibility of the jobsite and helps enhance operator comfort.

Duplex drum. The TG7000 is available with the exclusive duplex drum, featuring the latest technology in hammer design and replacement procedures. Equipped with reversible hammers and cutter blocks, this system offers nearly double the life of single sided designs

Transportation package. A gross weight of 73,500 lb (27,433 kg), or 84,500 lb (38,329 kg) with loader, the TG7000 has a 10' (3 m), 20,000 lb (9091 kg) triple axle spread for maximum allowed weight and transportation in the 48 continental U.S. states.

PT Tech Wet Clutch. A gear reduction clutch offers high productivity with a balance of increased torque to the mill and high efficiency due to imited slippage. Clutch is equipped with a 2-year/2000 hour limited warranty.

Non-bridging tub design. Tub dimensions allow operators to load large amounts of material, while the patented, conical, Thrown Object Restraint System (TORS) assists material flow while helping to reduce the quantity and distance of

A continuous undermill conveyor system. Designed to handle more production with less clogging, the 48” (122 cm) wide conveyor belt has a maximum speed of 860 fpm (262 m/min) and a height capability of 18’ (5.5 m).
