The HG4000 benefits from an updated feed roller with aggressive teeth and down pressure to maintain control of the fed material. A fully enclosed feed roller drive planetary helps provide protection and a tight clearance between the roller and mill housing to optimize material feeding while minimizing material catch points.
A wireless remote control comes standard with the HG4000, allowing operators to run most machine functions from up to 300 ft. (91.4 m) away.
The redesigned Vermeer HG4000 incorporates several service and maintenance enhancements, including a drive belt tensioning system that does not require the engine to be moved when adjusting, large hinged side shields for optimal maintenance access, added power rotation to the screen hoist for changing screens, and a CAT engine with worldwide support.
The HG4000 has a transport width of 8.2 ft. (2.5 m), a height of 13 ft. (4 m), a fifth-wheel hitch trailer length of 32 ft. (9.7 m), and a weight of 52,910 lbs. (24,000 kg), or a pintle hitch trailer length of 37 ft. (11.3 m) and weight of 55,155 lbs. (25,000 kg).
