The Model 2680 was designed for those tree services, loggers, govermental agencies, and land clearing contractors looking for a heavy-duty grinder that is easy to transport. This unit features a 24-inch by 60-inch mill opening, and engine options ranging from 365 to 440 horsepower. The 2680 has numerous teeth and screen options that will allow you to customize your Beast for the type of grinding you will be doing. To that end, this unit is a real work horse; it has been noted to produce 300 or more yards per hour.
The Model 2680 features a patented cuttermill system that actually breaks material apart by cutting and splitting as opposed to the beating action used by traditional grinders. This system, along with a high-torque drive, allows the 2680 to reduce large diameter materials with ease. Brush, logs, whole trees, stumps, logging waste, land clearing waste, C&D, railroad ties, telephone poles, sawmill waste, pallets, slabs, bark and chunk wood pose no problem for the Model 2680. This unit is especially effective in converting a variety of unwanted materials into useable products like compost, landscaping mulch, boiler fuel, animal bedding and more. The 2680 comes standard with a tether remote control, and can be equipped with an optional radio remote that will allow the unit to be controlled from an excavator or other remote locations. Be sure to look at some of the popular options available to customize the 2680. These options include a hydraulic thrower for loading end-opening chip vans, and the Color Critter system that will allow you to make a high-dollar colored mulch. For those involved in grinding pallets, green waste, or brush, a 30-tooth Dragonhead set-up option is available.
