Vermeer is enhancing its grinder tip line with the introduction of long-lasting max grinder tips. They contain the maximum amount of carbide to provide durability grinder operators can count on, which translates into more time on the job and less time spent changing tips. These durable grinder tips are designed for a precise fit, eliminating the time required for modifying tips to fit your Vermeer grinder.
“Many grinder owners prefer to use a more premium product and spend less time changing out tips,” said Vermeer Recycling and Forestry Product Manager Jeff Bradley. “In most cases, changing tips can take anywhere from an hour to two hours.”
Designed to extend the time between change-outs, max grinder tips will be included on the duplex drum with a purchase of a horizontal or tub grinder.
“Grit options help determine the useful life of the grinder tips. Vermeer now sells three grit coverage options — max, premium or pro — to match the life of the cutter tips to the application,” said Bradley.
“The max grinder tips deliver the longest life,” added Bradley. “The premium grinder tips feature additional welds on the ends and a single weld on the sides for an extended life span. Pro grinder tips have both ends and sides welded to provide a standard life span. The difference is the amount of carbide that is put on during the welding process. The max has a higher carbide content, which results in longer wear life.” said Bradley.
The three grit options can be paired with different grinder tip styles to match jobsite requirements. Six tip styles are available.
With the addition of the max grinder tips, there are now more options to match cutting tips to the specific application while extending the time between change-outs.
