CBI debuts 6400CT horizontal grinder at Factory Forum event

The event at its New Hampshire headquarters also featured an awards dinner for dealers.


Continental Biomass Industries (CBI) premiered the 6400CT horizontal grinder and chipper at the 2019 Factory Forum at its headquarters in Newton, New Hampshire. The 6400CT processed steel contaminated railroad ties along with a mix of construction and demolition debris to headline the range of environmental equipment at the show.

“The 6400CT’s cassette-style rotor is a great example of CBI’s customer-driven product development,” says George Wilcox, the director of sales and marketing at CBI & Ecotec – Americas. “This is an excellent machine for customers who demand productivity, reliability and versatility without compromise.”

The CBI Magnum Force 6400CT horizontal grinder is an extreme-duty machine engineered for resilience and high production to grind contaminated demolition debris, railroad ties, whole trees, pallets, storm debris, shingles, logs, mulch, slash and stumps. The revolutionary new cassette-style clam shell design allows end-users to completely swap out rotors faster than any other grinder in its class, CBI says. Operators can go from grinding to chipping in half the time and accept jobs with various material demands. Four interchangeable rotors is designed to give this horizontal grinder the versatility needed to stay on top of changing markets.

The Factory Forum concluded with CBI’s Annual Golden Grizzlies Awards dinner. Canada-based Frontline Machinery was named CBI’s 2019 Dealer of the Year and Columbus Equipment Company of Ohio was named the Terex Ecotec North American Dealer of the Year.

“Frontline Machinery and Columbus Equipment are exactly who you want representing your products in a territory,” says Wilcox. “Their world-class customer support for sales, service, and parts continues to set them apart as two of North America’s leading industrial heavy equipment dealerships.”
