Vermeer, Pella, Iowa, has introduced the new TR6400 model to its trommel screen product line. Capable of separating up to 180 cubic yards of material per hour, the TR6400 is designed for topsoil, compost and woody biomass applications. It features a powerful 100-horsepower Duetz 3.6L Tier 4 Final (Stage IV) engine, a 6.5-foot diameter screen drum, a low hopper infeed with a capacity of 6.5 cubic yards and various service and operating enhancements.
“The TR6400 trommel screen builds off the success of our recently introduced TR5300 model,” says Jeff Bradley, product manager for recycling and forestry equipment at Vermeer. “Its compact design allows for ease of transportation and maintenance. With a large drum diameter, hopper capacity and increased horsepower, teams will be able to produce large volumes of finished material with the TR6400 day in, day out.”
The drum of the TR6400 is designed for quick exchange with a side door that gives complete access to the drum body from the ground. In addition, the unit’s quick-change screen, with the ability to tension it around the drum to add rigidity, can accommodate smaller gauge wire to aid with overall production even when running wet materials.
To further enhance the performance of the TR6400 trommel screen, the Vermeer ACS control system gives operators the flexibility to run the machine with the DP10 display mounted on the control panel or a handheld transceiver remote. From either control unit, the operator can adjust conveyor heights and drum speeds depending on incoming material and job site conditions.
