Rotochopper unveiled its new B-66 L-Series horizontal grinder, the latest addition to its line of horizontal grinders, at its annual Demo Day event in September.
Rotochopper said the B-66 L-Series horizontal grinder is the most advanced fiber processing system on the market, designed to meet the needs of grinding larger, more abrasive feedstock materials and engineered to increase overall production rates with unmatched efficiency. Rotochopper said it continues to focus on innovation and growth, especially where their customers need additional solutions and flexibility – and this aggressive, robust and heavy-duty grinder hits the mark.
“Today’s world requires the ability to execute change with laser focus to meet your customer’s changing needs and wants,” said Art de St. Aubin, Rotochopper president and CEO. “When you sell direct to end users, you have the unique advantage to listen, adapt, change and innovate through customer feedback. The new B-66 L-Series launch required extensive R&D, data evaluations, engineering assessments and most important, customer partnerships. This new heavy-duty superior machine will compete on a world-class market platform.”
The lower, longer and less drag in-feed hopper tackles the toughest grinding jobs with ease. A newly designed aggressive power feed pulls materials into the grinding chamber effortlessly and the 38-inch throat opening accommodates some of the toughest material including, large logs, whole trees and brushy feedstocks. Remote monitoring, through Rotochopper’s RotoLink system, provides reporting and tracking data to ensure consistent efficiency, predict maintenance needs and reduce downtime.
Customer feedback prompted Rotochopper to include the following options as standard features on the B-66L grinder:
- Wear liners;
- Bolt-in anvil;
- 24 tooth rotor with 2-inch thick drum; and a
- Reinforced case, enabling the B-66L to tolerate substantial wear and tear.
The B-66 L-Series grinder can be powered by either a 950 or 1050 hp diesel engine. Users can pair the B-66L with the enhanced Generation II Dolly to seamlessly transition from highway transport to work site navigation in minutes. The reengineered Gen II Dolly incorporates a longer, more robust axle spread to more evenly distribute the weight of the grinder, mitigating transport restrictions and obstacles.
