Grinder DuraTech has come up with a new tub grinder which
can be loaded on a truck and transported to any location for grinding - the
HD-9R rolloff grinder. "Just hook it up, load it on the truck in less than
two minutes, and transport it to almost any location," says Bruce Leiseth,
DuraTech's industrial division sales manager. Transporting the grinder is made
easy because it requires no axles, brakes, hitch and only limited lights. The
grinder features a tub that tilts hydraulically and a 275-hp electronic John
Deere engine. For more information call (701) 252-4601, fax (701) 252- 0502 or
