This site is operating a Rawlings Stationary Electric Horizontal Wood Grinding System.  This system processes western red cedar at 65 Tons per hour with two 300-hp electric motors. This complete system includes a receiving conveyor, magnetic separation, belt in-feed, a vibratory out-feed conveyor, a metal detector, and a work platform.

The system is fed by a front-end loader, onto the receiving transfer that waterfalls the material onto the infeed conveyor.  This process allows the dense cedar bark to be separated and transferred over a magnet to remove any unwanted metal. The material is then fed into the Rawlings grinder and processed out onto a vibratory conveyor.  The purpose of the vibratory screen is to produce a consistent end-product for the mulch bagging operation located onsite.

Rawlings Horizontal Wood Hogs are available in 5 different sizes. Each system can be designed with work platform decks, a choice of belt, chain, vibrating in-feed and out-feed conveyors, and metal or magnet protection. Product screening allows the customer to protect their investment while producing a high-quality consistent end product.  The horizontal model is the best-suited grinder for processing brush, yard waste, storm debris, C&D waste, and other mixed bulky wood feedstocks. Contact our team today to learn more about Rawlings wood waste grinding systems.
