Ask the Grinder Guy Hey Grinder Guy, what the difference between all these auto feed options? Good question. One of the biggest technological advancements in grinding in the past 10 years, has been these automatic feed systems. They may be called one thing or another, but they all work mostly the same way. In the past, the monitoring of engine rpm made it possible to regulate the feed rate of tub grinders or horizontal grinders or chippers. As the engine rpm slowed to a preset rpm point, the feed system would stop or the tub would stop spinning until the rpm recovered to a higher set rpm, then the feed would start again and production would resume. With the new computerized electronic engines that started 10 years ago or so, the monitoring of engine load and not just engine rpm, made it easier to maximize horsepower and torque of the engine. Instead of the hydraulic feed systems stopping and starting, they would slow as the engine load increased and try to keep the engine working at maximum engine load. This would create maximum production no matter if you were feeding your grinder or chipper with a 1-yard excavator bucket or a 20-yard loader bucket. The grinder would take care of itself. But, one question? When is too much, too much? Working an engine at 100 percent all day every day, sure would wear it out faster. Seems to me we have replaced or rebuilt a lot of engines since these advancements started. I am not an engine expert or engine technician for that matter, but here’s what I know: • Engine Ratings — Engines have 3 or 4 or 5 different horsepower ratings for each engine. They are set based upon your usage and they can be changed; • HP — You cannot tell the difference between 100 and 1050 hp, but your fuel gauge can; • Fuel — You will use more fuel when you use more horsepower; • Heat — The more Horsepower, the hotter the engine, the hotter the fuel, the more fuel you use; • RPM — Really doesn’t

matter, it’s the load on the engine that does; and • Warranty — You cannot buy a long enough one. If you do not have the support equipment to continue to keep the engine at 100 percent load all the time, does it really need to run at 100 percent for 20 minutes, or would 66 percent load for an hour be OK? Make a call to your local engine dealer and ask a knowledgeable representative for their opinion. Ask about engine ratings, engine loads, torque curves and how they all apply to warranties. Before you buy your next piece of equipment, ask these ques-

tions also. I think you will find that running your grinder or chipper at 80 or 90 percent of full rpm will get you a good production rate, at a reasonable fuel rate and extend the life of your engine. There is some variance because some engines maximum rpm are different. One further point against running at full engine load all the time is the temperature of your fuel. The hotter the fuel, the less efficient it is. Which means you will burn more and do less. As you run the engine at maximum horsepower, you are also pumping maximum fuel. The fuel that

isn’t used, is returned to the tank. As you continue to run at 100 percent, the engine temperature keeps increasing, which is increasing the temperature of your fuel, which is getting returned to the tank over and over. The temperature of the fuel continues to increase, that is why these engines have fuel coolers. But make no mistake, the harder you run, the more fuel you pump and the hotter the fuel gets, decreasing its efficiency. So whether you are landclearing, making mulch, grinding or chipping, fuel costs you money, and the more you save of it puts money in your pocket.

Nine years of green waste. One serious grinding success by Larry Trojak Used grinder helps North Dakota fir m change gears, tackle massive gr een waste pile

Andy Rickford takes a load of yard waste to be ground in the Morbark 1200. The day this photo was taken (July 1), Andy's wife Becky gave birth to their daughter, Jordyn Leigh. The old adage: “never put off until tomorrow what three months into the project, the pile is all but gone business until a semi-retirement in 2003.” you can do today,” is one of those bits of wisdom and Zorn is looking at a future for his business that The following year, when Zorn’s brother David was which, while seemingly trite, is proven out every day, is dramatically different from what he envisioned just looking to sell a small startup tree removal business, in life and in business.

It really changed my thinking about the direction I wanted to take my own business.” Zorn says he came back to North Dakota in June of 2005, made his first chipper purchase shortly afterwards, and started to grow his business around it. In addition to residential tree removal, he found a successful niche removing shelter belts (also called windbreaks — trees that protect farmland from wind and erosion) which had outlived their usefulness. He also bought a small grinder to begin generating and coloring mulch for sale to area customers. Getting Into the Tub Shelter belt removal proved highly successful with Z’s Trees, now running a pair of chippers, and doing as much as five to six miles of belts a single season. But a visit to a friend’s grinding operation in 2010 would change things for Zorn even further. “At that point, I was convinced that chippers were the best type of large scale processing equipment we could have,” he says. “But I kept remembering what I saw down at the Gulf Coast. So when I visited a friend’s operation in Minneapolis to see his Morbark tub grinder at work, it really caused me to rethink things and consider growing the mulch side of the business even further.” Zorn let some of his contacts in the industry — During the summer months, there is a steady demand for the quality mulch that Z's Trees generates from the Z’s Trees 9 debris and yard waste that accumulates.

both processors like himself and reps for equipment manufacturers — know that he was in the market for a used tub grinder. In the meantime he demoed a number of grinders which did not impress him and did a decent amount of further research into Morbark’s line of tubs. “Not only did I like what I was reading about them, I was also learning that they had a great reputation for outstanding service and support — exactly what I needed. So, in early 2011, when I got a call about a used Morbark 1200 with very low hours on it, I purchased it sight unseen and had it hauled back here to Cooperstown.” Getting the Call Not long after that, Zorn says his father had stopped by the Jamestown Municipal Landfill looking for material for Rodd’s mulch operation. The elder Zorn knew the landfill had been accumulating wood and green waste for better than nine years —the size of the pile at the entrance to the site left no doubt about that-so he dropped off a Z’s Trees business card. Rodd Zorn quickly learned that the landfill had new management in place and their focus was on getting rid of the existing pile and restarting a composting operation which had been unwisely abandoned years before. To do so, they had contracted with a local company to grind the debris. “But we found out they’d been unable to make any progress at all,” he says. “Apparently they were getting killed with maintenance related downtime, so the landfill operator was looking for someone who could come in on short notice and get the job done.” Two things were definitely working in Zorn’s favor: first, he had just taken delivery of the Model 1200, replaced the inserts and had it ready to get to work. Second, an unbelievably wet spring had left the ground so saturated throughout the state that the shelter belt operation was, literally, dead in the water. He called the landfill and agreed to take the job. Grinding Out a Victory Starting work at the landfill site was not as easy as one might think. Zorn says the green waste dropoff area was so full (he guesses that it had to be in excess of 3,000 tons of debris) and so congested that they had to set up on the road just to grind enough material to clear out a space for the tub grinder to operate. “That first week, all we did was clear out areas to work; it was just a logistical nightmare,” he says. “And, keep in mind, residents and commercial customers were still dropping off material while all this was going on. There were many times when I was wishing they could have suspended drop offs for that first couple weeks to allow us to really make some headway, but we still managed to make it work.” Things at the site were made worse by the composition of the material itself. Because the green waste had sat for so long, much of the grass and brush had long since decomposed. That material, combined with the almost non-stop rains in spring, created what appeared to be wood mixed with a thick muddy substance. It all served to make grinding a real challenge. Zorn says a combination of impressive equipment performance and a different approach to feeding the material, helped alleviate many of the problems that had plagued the previous grinding effort. “The 1200 tub has been outstanding right from the moment we brought it to the site,” he says. “It was obviously built for severe duty applications and this more than qualifies for that. But even the best grinder in the world will not be able to handle a steady diet of nothing but muddy material, so we’ve gotten a bit creative in how we feed it. We look around for all the largest pieces of wood debris and make sure that every tubful has a decent mixture of wood and the muddy green waste. That keeps the mill from clogging up, downtime for us has been almost nil, and the customer is impressed with what we’ve been able to do in such a short time. You can’t beat that.” Change of Direction While Z’s Trees now has a full scale mulch operation it runs under the name Dakota Mulch, the material at the landfill is so wet and dirt filled that it has virtually no commercial value. Instead, the landfill operator has chosen to use material from the grinding operation as alternative daily cover for the site. That inaugural grinding operation has, however,

opened Zorn’s eyes to a whole new world of possibilities for the company. “Having the Morbark Model 1200 allows us to tackle jobs we never could have gotten before,” he says. “For example, municipal landfills throughout the state are quickly filling up. Offering to grind their green waste — and take the material away afterwards, rather than leaving it on site — is a huge benefit to them. Similarly, in Minot, where they’ve just seen some of the worst flooding in history, they are looking at a massive volume of trees which will have to be removed and disposed of. We are hoping to be able to come in, grind those trees, take the mulch and help them avoid clogging their own landfill.” While some of Zorn’s chipped material goes for use by farmers in composting applications or as animal bedding, the majority of it is shipped to the Fibrominn plant in Benson, MN, the first power plant in the U.S. designed to burn poultry litter (with wood chips) as its main source of fuel. Mulch continues to gain in popularity, however, and Zorn likes the direc-

tion they seem to be headed. “When we started out, we were essentially just stockpiling chips on property we own. But I’ve worked hard to establish markets for the material we generate, and feel the Morbark tub grinder will now allow us to shift our focus even more. In fact, I can see us gradually moving away from the residential side of things entirely and possibly even adding a second grinder in a year or so. This is one productive machine, I don’t think there’s anything it can’t grind. We are really excited for what lies ahead for us.” For more information on Z’s Trees, contact them at Phone: 701-789-3653 or 800-470-3083 or online at www.zstreesdakotamulch.com.

Jim Shoemaker’s expertise in operations makes him “My role is to make sure that the company has processes in place that listen carefully to the market and react quickly.” He cites the recycling industry that has practically reinvented itself in the last eight years. “Materials are no longer looked at as waste, but as revenue. And making sure our equipment keeps up with those changes is pretty exciting.” As the markets and customers keep changing, Morbark will continue to evolve as well.

TCIA Expo exceeds expectations HARTFORD, CT — With the advent of a huge early season wet snowfall that dumped a number of inches on areas in New York and New England, the TCIA Expo pushed on. With many out of power due to the storm, including areas in and around Hartford, the TCIA Expo was a big success. Many attendees came to participate in the five day affair taking in two day Pre-Conference workshops along with three days of Conference Industry Training and Information sessions, Conference Forums and the TCIA Trade Show. Attendance was much better than expected and highly upbeat given the conditions left by the storm.

“10 Year Trailer” is Verspeeten’s strategy to succeed in waste hauling Working closely with Titan Trailers to develop the right trailer for today’s municipal customer leads to a successful long term business plan. INGERSOLL, ON — For those who regularly travel the Highway 401 corridor west of Toronto, Ontario, the sudden influx of sleek aluminum transfer trailers painted with the words “Driven to Succeed” was an unmistakeable change in the local landscape. The larger fleet of smoothside trailers built by Titan Trailers is a new addition for Verspeeten Cartage, based in Ingersoll, Ontario. Verspeeten is well known in the area, principally as a full load carrier with an excellent record of providing just in time service to the automotive assembly plants throughout North America. In January of 2011, however, Verspeeten’s distinctive new equipment began to roll out on the highway with 60 loads of municipal trash per day to deliver from Toronto to the City’s new Green Lane landfill site 120 miles west, near the City of London. Verspeeten had taken on trash contracts in the past, but nothing on this scale. The Toronto contract required the purchase of 37 new moving floor trailers. For Scott Verspeeten, general manager, making the right business decision for the new fleet was an easy one. “We wanted a 10 year trailer,” Verspeeten declares. “We didn’t go anywhere else.” Scott Verspeeten was already familiar with Titan Trailers when Toronto released its tender for the Green Lane project. Established in 1953 and now operating a fleet of more than 1,400 units, his firm first began hauling waste from Toronto to Michigan in 1998. Titan, also headquartered in southern Ontario, had been making a name for itself in the waste industry with its patented THINWALL body construction, based on a lightweight interlocking extruded aluminum panel designed by the company’s President, Mike Kloepfer. In 2003, Ver-

speeten bought its first Titan trailer, but opted at the time for their traditional steel post and panel trailers. Changes in the business “Trailer weight was not so important then as it is now,” he explains. “We

simply ordered the Titan equipment to match the other traditional transfer trailers in our fleet.” By the time of the Green Lane tender, though, the business profile had changed. At the old Michigan landfill, trailers unloaded on a

tipper stand and the site maintained a clear lane to the tipper. At the new landfill, the trailers simply drive over the trash to their designated unloading area to self-unload with a moving floor. More importantly, Verspeeten’s customers are

now paying its contractors by the truckload, not by weight. They demand maximum weights on every load, so the payload capacity of the trailer became a significant factor in Verspeeten’s bid. For Verspeeten, the highway distances, the

site conditions and the payload requirements all weighed in favour of Titan’s THINWALL trailers. The extruded panel of the THINWALL body are assembled horizontally, allowing the trailer to resist twisting stresses as it

flexes over uneven ground. The all aluminum body achieves significant weight reductions while the extruded hollow core panel allows higher cubic capacity than traditional post and

panel trailers. With the new trailers, Verspeeten can deliver on the customers’ goal of maximizing the amount of waste moved in every load. At the Toronto transfer station, Verspeeten’s

closed top trailers are loaded using compactors that can add severe stresses to the sidewalls and bulkheads. But Scott Verspeeten is confident that the THINWALL body can take the compaction The Paramax suspension, unique to Titan, provided the Verspeeten fleet of Titan Trailers the additional clearance and protection against air bag and tire damage.

Scott Verspeeten and one of his Titan 10 year trailers are becoming part of the landscape of Southwestern Ontario stresses and still live out the 10 year span he required for his business plan. “The bulkheads were bowing under the pressure,” he notes, “but they returned to form as soon as the load came off. There was no stress cracking we could see at all.” Since then, Verspeeten has worked with the transfer station operators to moderate com-

paction pressures and to distribute loads more evenly. “Compaction amplifies any irregularities in loading,” he continues. “Too much wet material concentrated at the front can get us into trouble at the scales. We’ve had great cooperation to make the project work for everyone.”

Specialty C&D experts enjoy the challenge of difficult jobs by Jon M. Casey Recently, after having had the opportunity to hear a presentation given by EnviroVantage™ president, Scott Knightly, at the C&D Recycling Forum, in Ellicott City, MD, WHEN traveled to Epping, NH for a one on one visit with this interesting, innovative executive. Knightly, welcomed us as he explained what goes into the preparation and planning of the difficult remediation and C&D work that they do. This expertise has made his company an industry leader. Knightly explained that he began his business as a summer job, when he attended the University of New Hampshire. That was in 1985. There he was studying to earn a degree in business, at the Whitmore School of Business. He said that he began as a summer painting contractor and found that he needed to deal with lead issues in the old paint that he was replacing. Knightly said that it didn’t take him long to do the research he needed to become his own lead abatement firm. He wanted to save the time, money and effort, rather than having to rely upon other contractors to do the work. More importantly, there were none in the state at that time. “I wrote a business plan in 1984, based on the current lead laws that were in place in the state of

Maryland,” he said. “I worked my way on up from there. We incorporated in 1985.” Knightly said that he and his company vice president, Scott Sansoucie, started working together and have been at it ever since. Most of Knightly’s crew members have been with him for 15 or more years as well. “That helps to make my job easier,” he said. Knightly chuckles when he recounts the story of the company’s beginnings, because he said that he received a B minus from his professor for this business plan that he wrote at that time. However, when he received a “Business of the Year” award for his efforts, he delighted in inviting his college professor, who in fact attended the ceremony following Knightly’s request. “It was a lot of fun,” he said. Today, EnviroVantage is nationally renowned. “Over time, as our business matured, we have found that it serves us best if we are able to do all of the work that is necessary to complete a job,” he said. “We found that we had to be a mold, lead, asbestos, demolition, hazardous waste kind of company, to compete. So we cross train all of our employees so that they are able to do all of those things, so when they walk onto a project, the general contractor does not need five separate companies to do specialized

We can do it all.” “If we need to remove the boiler and its asbestos, we take it. If we need to remove old sheetrock, we can. If we need to lead or asbestos remediation to provide a clean environment, we can do that as well. We specialize in mill abatement work, where old buildings are cleaned out and restored with new interiors and new windows, and are usable as offices or condominiums or whatever the general contractor is hired to do. We can be very cost competitive because we can do it all and turn over a clean work environment for the rest of the trades.” He said that more importantly, they have the experience to know what is needed at the various stages of the job. That helps cut costs and improve overall efficiency. The removal and re-installation of windows is just one example. “We have become one of the largest window compaAn aerial photograph of the Kingswood Regional Vocational High School in Wolfeboro, NH, shows how busy this jobsite is during a typical school day.

Getting it right the first time While the Titan THINWALL body offers inherent advantages for this application, Verspeeten also found that Titan and their local dealer, Titan Trailer Sales of Brantford, Ontario, were also willing and knowledgeable partners in developing the best trailer for the job. “We wanted a flawless start,” says Verspeeten. “Our plan was to buy one early, to run it through the Spring and Summer, monitor results in our shop and give the feedback to Titan before the new trailers went into production.” Titan supplied a prototype to test out the design on the loading areas of the transfer stations and landfills served by Verspeeten. To ensure consistent reporting to the maintenance and engineering group, Verspeeten assigned one driver to pull the test trailer. As Scott recalls, “Mike Kloepfer Titan’s president and members of the Titan design team came right down to the loading facilities with us to see how our trailers were getting loaded; they looked at the ramps and the scales. The people from Titan Trailer Sales, Rob Janiec and Gary Luska, were there, too. We appreciated that they all made so much effort to make sure we had what we needed. Mike Kloepfer, he’s not your typical owner. He gets right in there. He’s very hands on and you can tell. It flows down through his management and all his people. They’re all the same. Getting it right was as important to them as it was to us.”

People are seeing a lot of these on the highway between Toronto and London. Making good ideas better One result of the trial run was a design update to Titan’s recently launched Paramax steering axle suspension. Titan developed the Paramax system specifically for off road requirements, but the Verspeeten driver reported that at some of the transfer stations, the steering axles were still rubbing over the ground while in the lift position as the trailer rolled through a hole. Titan modified the axles with longer shocks and switched to low profile super single tires providing the Paramax suspension with 10-inches of up travel. With the new design, Verspeeten has seen no issues with air bag damage or tire wear.

nies in the area because we design our jobs to include re-doing the windows right away rather than boarding the openings up after the old windows are removed,” he said. “Instead of waiting for the new windows, we already have them in place and ready to install. That saves time and money.” Knightly recalls that he could see what was coming in the way of abatement regulations and the need for precise planning when it comes to C&D work in specialized environments like those that require extensive sound or dust control to help protect the nearby environment of the project. He said that in the early years of his work, he helped write the lead laws in New Hampshire. “As a result, our company was issued the first license for lead abatement in the state, C001.” In projects like hospitals, libraries, schools and other work that calls for extra preventative measures, EnviroVantage has the trained personnel and experience to get the job done properly the first time. One job that currently fits this description is work going on at the Kingswood Regional Vocational High School in Wolfeboro, NH. “On a job like Kingswood, if we hadn’t had 128 people working on the job site, working seven days per week, Kingswood would not have made the schedule that they were on,” he noted. “Because of the kind of work that it was, we needed to do much of the internal demo work with sludge hammers. We needed 100 sludge hammers so our purchasing person went out and got us 100 sledge hammers!” “Projects like those require the jobsite be in the condition that the GC needs to do the remainder of the work that needs to take place once the demo and abatement work is completed. Hospitals are the same way. When an operating room needs to be demoed and replaced with a new one (while the other operating rooms are still up and running), specialty demo work becomes the norm.” Knightly said that since then, he has attempted to be on the cutting edge of C&D and abatement contracting. In this way, he believes that customers will think of his company first when they find that they have a need for this kind of work. EnviroVantage specializes in doing difficult jobs under challenging circumstances. “We use equipment like our mobile VecLoader®, a self-contained, trailer mounted HEPA vacuum for removing asbestos, lead, debris or bird guano and other unwanted material,” he said. “It disposes of those unwanted items directly into waste containers. That saves labor, time and material.” “The harder the job, the better,” he said. “We have done work nationwide. We have even done work on a military base the Azore Islands of Portugal. We trained the local people before starting the work, rather than attempting to bring our people to the job over there. We were not able to bring enough of our people over there to do the job, so we sent instructors. They trained the local workers and the locals earned their certificates. Then, we hired them.” With the capability of handling asbestos, lead, mold and other high risk materials, and offering the assurance of experience of more than two decades of success, EnviroVantage presents a level of skill for customers who require construction demolition projects not commonly met by the majority of C&D businesses in the marketplace. Many of the jobs that EnviroVantage has to do are considered fast track jobs, some that need to be completed in what would seem to be impossibly short schedule. “We thrive on that,” he said. “We figure out what needs to be done and then we do it! Every job these days seems to be a fast track project, so being able to handle multiple tasks such as environmental and abatement on the same project, helps us to complete all aspects of the job in a contained environment, and complete the project on time and within budget. When others say, ‘we can’t, we figure it out and we say, we can!’” For more information on EnviroVantage, visit their website at www.EnviroVantage.com or by calling them at 800640-5323.

Titan experimented with more design ideas in an effort to improve fuel efficiency, durability and overall profitability before Verspeeten gave the go ahead to build the next 36 trailers. “Sometimes, they would see issues before we did, and came right in to make a change. They suggested the KEITH® V-Floor® unloader to us; the lighting, plumbing, aluminum rims, landing gear and running gear... and they coordinated our meetings

with the different suppliers to help us finalize our selection and specs. It’s all the higher end stuff that will last the life of the trailer. When you look in the back at that V-Floor, you can see it — that’s going to be one tough floor! They changed the back door to suit different compactors. Their idea for an aerodynamic roofline didn’t work out for us, because all our company tractors have deflectors; but then one of our owner operators

asked us specially for that trailer because, without a deflector, it was saving him a lot of diesel.” Running with the 10 year trailer The final configuration chosen for the contract is a 51-foot five axle trailer with IMT SmartSteer axles on the Paramax suspension and with the extreme duty V9 model V-Floor self-unloader system from KEITH® WALKING FLOOR®. Scott Verspeeten claims that his

drivers also agree with the company’s choice. “They’re on the 401 about 90 percent of their time. They say sometimes they don’t even think the trailer is back there. There are some hills along the route where they know they usually have to downshift. But with these trailers, they don’t even have to drop a gear, and they’re hauling maybe three or four tons more than the old trailers.” “After seeing how these work, I wouldn’t think of

buying anything else. Knowing what they can do, and all their help to get this job started, it will really help us to bid competitively next time. We’ve got our 10 year trailer, and our customer is getting the heavy weights they require.” Titan Trailers is a world class innovation leader in the hauling industry long recognized for job specific functionality and attention to manufacturing detail. Titan Trailers offer business minded haulers a complete line of trailers utilizing advanced design

and manufacturing technologies based on the patented THINWALL extruded aluminum panel. Titan focuses its extensive R&D activities on making its trailers the best business choice for operators in the custom trailer market.
