Land clearing equipment

Industry leading land clearing equipment since 1988.

CBI grinders were originally designed by a land clearing operation that needed a more efficient way of grinding. The high production volume and reliability of CBI grinders make them excellent land clearing equipment for right-of-way contractors. Public highway and bridge support project purchases are forecasted for at least five years of consecutive growth from 2017-2021, with the segment of right of way purchases expected to grow to $7.3 billion in the year of 2021. At the same time, utilities continue to increase spending on transmission infrastructure in all regions of the United States to more reliably meet new demand patterns. The Energy Gateway project alone is expanding 2,000 miles of transmission lines by 2024, and has already added more than 405 miles of transmission lines. New product developments for the 6800CT Horizontal Grinder, such as the increased screening area, higher production and fuel economy, and larger components ensure it will remain the “king of land clearing” for years to come.

From day one, CBI grinders have been purpose-built for the power and portability demanded by modern land clearing operations. Industries such as forestry or logging can leverage CBI's advancements in portability to reduce fuel consumption and the overall cost of transportation. Tracks and wheels, as an option on CBI equipment, allows companies to process material on site in dense woods, at landfills and even over rugged terrain. In many cases, this eliminates the need to transport bulky raw material to a production facility – thereby reducing fuel consumption and emissions while increasing profit margins. Additionally, they can grind, chip or shred material to a size that makes the best sense for their end product and maximize each truck load – while conforming to legal weight limits.

“If we take jobs that need to be done in a certain amount of time, with a CBI 6800BT we know that we can do it. We know that we won’t have a lot of breakdowns or hammers breaking or tips flying off. We’ve got the machine set up right. I grind a lot of big stuff. I worked through one job that was eight acres, it was all logs and stumps and I got through it in two days with the 6800BT. On an average job that’s been logged, you shouldn’t have over three loads of mulch per acre. That job hadn’t been logged. We had to grind logs and stumps through eight acres and ended up having 55 loads of mulch. That was the first job I’d run it on and I pushed it as hard as I can push it.”
