Hammer Mill with PTO Drive
The Meadows Mills Hammer Mill with PTO Drive has a Farm Duty rating for up to 75HP. The Meadows Hammer Mill easily connects to tractor 3 point hitch CAT I, CAT I QA and CAT II. This is a very powerful piece of machinery that will grind a host of items including grains, regrinding bark and mulch, cut silage and various feeds. Ask Meadows to match your hammer mill to your exact needs. This Hammer Mill has a 3600 RPM with a fan discharge at approximately 4000 CFM. There are knife hammers optional where less pulverizing is desired, and optional auger discharge powered from tractor remotes. There are pins included for CAT I and it has a clevis type hitch. It is light enough at 1,300lbs. to be carried behind most 40HP tractors using 3 point hitch (front loader or front weights recommended for carrying on tractor 50HP and below). This hammer mill also has a heavy duty gusseted frame to minimize any movement during operation. The unit uses an Auburn step up type gearbox to get from 540 rpm to about 2,000 rpm. A belt drive is used from the gearbox to the hammer mill drive to get the desired 3600 rpm on the mill rotor and fan. Options for the hammer mill are: fan discharge with 6″ angle ring (standard), bottom discharge, bottom discharge with auger, fan discharge with 90 degree elbow and arm to side discharge and fan discharge with piping and fully supported cyclone collector. The nature of the hammer mill makes adjusting a slip clutch linkage impossible. Protection for the mill gearbox and tractor PTO are achieved using a belt drive with proper tension.
