Vermeer showcased a few pieces of equipment at the U.S. Composting Council (USCC) Conference & Tradeshow in Los Angeles, including the TR626 trommel screen with a radial stacking conveyor, the HG6000TX horizontal grinder, and the CT718 compost turner equipped with a two-wheel drive short track option.

According to Vermeer, the TR626, which features a 6-ft. drum and a hopper that holds 6 cu. yd., makes short work of processing material. The drum is accessible through removable side panels. Its 125-hp John Deere 4045 Tier 4 Final engine is a powerful workhorse, the company says. An optional radial stacking conveyor with a 180-degree arc increases the amount of material being stacked on the ground. The adjustable stacking height aids with dust control and helps to prevent material from blowing away.

The HG6000TX self-propels into the most remote jobsites on 20-in. or 24-in. double grouser track pads, Vermeer says. High ground clearance and sealed rollers help keep material from building up in the track system. Also, equipped with a state-of-the-art wireless remote, an operator is able to run the machine from up to 300 ft. away. An optional discharge blower system distributes processed wood over a large area or can fill a covered trailer from the rear end, the company adds.

CT718 compost turner

The CT718, equipped with a two-wheel drive short track option, sets new standards for efficiency, productivity and ease of operation, Vermeer says. When equipped with an independent two-wheel drive short track system, the CT718 offers improved traction in difficult composting sites. Operator comfort and efficiency have been enhanced, the company says, with new controls, an easy-to-read control display, and side- and rearview cameras.

The USCC Conference & Tradeshow takes place Jan. 23-26 at the Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles. The event’s annual equipment demonstrations will be held Jan. 26 at the city of Los Angeles’ Lopez Canyon Compost Facility.
