Compact, durable design for topsoil, compost and biomass applications


Vermeer continues to expand its trommel screen product line with the introduction of the new TR6400 model, capable of separating up to 180 cubic yards (137.6 cu m) of material per hour with .5-inch (12.7-mm) screens installed and a material moisture content of less than 40%. It features a powerful 100-horsepower (75-kW) Deutz 3.6L Tier 4 Final (Stage IV) engine, a 6.5-foot (2-m) diameter screen drum with variable speeds of 0-33.1 gallons per minute (0-125.3 L/min), a low hopper infeed with a capacity of 6.5 cubic yards (5 cu m) and various service and operating enhancements. The new TR6400 complements the smaller Vermeer TR5300 Trommel in the product line and is designed for topsoil, compost and woody biomass applications.


“The TR6400 trommel screen builds off the success of our recently introduced TR5300 model,” explained Jeff Bradley, product manager for recycling and forestry equipment at Vermeer. “Its compact design allows for ease of transportation and maintenance. With a large drum diameter, hopper capacity and increased horsepower, teams will be able to produce large volumes of finished material with the TR6400 day in, day out.”


The drum of the Vermeer TR6400 is designed for quick exchange with a side door that gives complete access to the drum body from the ground. Also, the unit’s quick-change screen, with the ability to tension it around the drum to add rigidity, can accommodate smaller gauge wire to aid with overall production even when running wet materials. And with various access points to critical areas and a foldout motor compartment that provides access to the backside of the engine, servicing the TR6400 is efficient.


To further enhance the performance of the Vermeer TR6400 trommel screen, the user-friendly Vermeer ACS control system gives operators the flexibility to run the machine with the DP10 display mounted on the control panel or a handheld transceiver remote. From either control unit, the operator can adjust conveyor heights and drum speeds depending on incoming material and jobsite conditions.
