The patented Kimwood Hog is designed and built to process difficult materials with less power and lower maintenance than typical hammerhogs. This is accomplished by having only one moving part instead of many small moving parts that wear against each other and the materials being processed. The Kimwood Hog is known for its very heavy duty construction and ability to stay on-line.


The solid rotor assembly builds and maintains high kinetic energy that easily processes material surges, solid chunks and stringy barks. The offset cutter bars reduce power consumption and attack materials across the full width of the machine. The 180 grate (screen) design has proven to process material surges and high volumes to more consistently sized final products. The case is manufactured heavier at all stress points and the wear areas are covered with wear plates that are made of (400-500 Brinell) alloy plate.

The shaft and bearings are oversized to withstand the abuse that hogs are subjected to. Specifically designed shear pins keep damage to a minimum when an "uncrushable" object gets into the hog. Their controlled break allows fast pin replacement and minimizes downtime.


A unitized substructure frame with an adjustable motor base, drive guard, hydraulic opener and pre-wired electrical safety switches are all included in the standard unit. For new installations or old hog replacement, the complete package approach makes for a faster, safer and more economical installation. these features also allow maintenance personnel fast, easy and safety access to perform necessary maintenance, further reducing overall costs.
