A Tub Grinder at Work

It's very busy up at my compost yard - one of the most important areas on my Bedford, New York farm.

Over the last few weeks, my outdoor grounds crew has been gathering all the organic debris - logs, stumps, bark and brush, and transporting it to the compost yard in preparation for the tub grinder. I like to call in the massive machine once a year or once every two years, to reduce the size of our debris pile into much finer, usable wood chips and mulch. The tub grinder from Material Processors Inc. arrived this week and is already making lots of progress.

Here are some photos and videos, enjoy.

Here are two short clips showing the excavator, tub grinder, and conveyor at work.
