6800CT Horizontal Grinder runs at COMPOST 2019


CBI and Terex Ecotec recently ran live product demos at the U.S. Composting Council’s 2019 Demo Day—the largest “live” equipment demonstration for the composting and wood recycling industry in the U.S., with attendees representing key decision makers in its compost industry. The CBI 6800CT Horizontal Grinder and Ecotec TTS 620T Trommel Screen generated interest with their elite production and precision. Locally in Arizona, CBI grinders have been critical for fire prevention and forest restoration initiatives in National Forests.

Chuck Magee, a CBI customer who attended CBI’s Factory Forum in October and recently purchased a grinder for waste management in California, also attended the Compost Show and was impressed with the total value Terex offered. He comments how delighted he is with the return on investment he is getting on his machine, both with its productivity and in the aftermarket support he has been getting from the CBI team.

For the Ecotec line, Product Manager George Wilcox has been instrumental at educating stakeholders and in the region and throughout North America. Wilcox explains how some of the 620’s benefits align with customer needs—specifically, how it can screen compost at a high production level while outputting a fine, consistent end product that is very marketable to vegetable and produce growers in Arizona.

Neal Nowick, GM of Terex Newton said, “The Compost Show Demo Day was an important event to show the capabilities of both machines to our customers, particularly since this year it took place in Arizona—with Western U.S. as an important growing market for CBI and Ecotec. We look forward to building on the momentum of the show and following up with connections made.”
