The Mighty Giant Model 5012 Hydrafork

The Mighty Giant Model 5012 features a hydraulic fork as standard equipment, allowing the operator to load the material to be ground into the tub and to control the entire grinder from the comfort of the Operator Control Center. In addition, the tub tilts hydraulically (something we’ve been doing for over 50 years) for easy access to the hammers and screens. Model 5012 machines are equipped with a swinging elevator system as standard equipment. Screens are available in a wide range of sizes, with custom configurations available because we fabricate our own screens. The Model 5012 is equipped with a Caterpillar engine. These engines are covered with Caterpillar’s 5 year / 5000 hour Extended Service Coverage. The 14” discharge auger under the mill allows trouble free grinding with less mess under the machine.

Features:

  • Tub opens hydraulically for servicing and changing the screens.
  • Tub hydraulic system uses a variable displacement hydrastat pump with electronic speed control for forward and reverse. Tub is chain driven.
