Tub & Horizontal Wood Grinding
What is Tub and/or Horizontal Wood Grinding?
Tub/Horizontal Wood Grinding is the process in which vegetative debris is placed either in a round tub or on a horizontal belt system and fed into a machine designed to grind the debris to create a smaller, reusable by-product. Picture a large round metal tub or a long metal conveyer belt attached to wheels or tracks, capable of grinding wood waste and spitting out hundreds of cubic yards of grindings per hour. These mechanical beasts are vital to our industry, as it allows us to turn vegetative debris into our recycled mulches and boiler fuel.
A Little History...
Tub/Horizontal grinders were introduced in the early ’80s as a solution to the lumber industry’s ever-growing ecological footprint. By reducing wood waste and producing a biomass fuel supply, these machines certainly lived up to that early promise. Soon enough, these hardworking behemoths were used for mulch production, which not only aided the recycling movement, but also replaced much of the bark and pine needles that were so prevalent at the time. This is why we love our grinders: they repurpose trees and create environmentally better landscaping products to benefit our landscapes.
In addition to using our grinders to create our own line of recycled, organic landscaping products, we also offer on-site tub/horizontal grinding for all land clearing projects. By diversifying our machines and expertise, we’re able to do more for you at the right price.
