Interchangeable rotors

The CBI 5400BT features four different swappable rotors to accommodate changing materials and processing demands. The solid steel rotor is designed for grinding contaminated demolition debris, railroad ties and MSW. While the forged drum rotor is designed for forestry debris, mulch and hog manufacturing and the 2- and 4-pocket chipper rotors are used for the production of fuel chips.

Metal Detection System (MDS)

The Metal Detection System (MDS) on the 5400 horizontal grinder engages within milliseconds whenever the grinder’s rotor makes contact with tramp metal. The rotor is monitored by an adjustable electronic sensor to alert the control system when tramp metal is detected. It will automatically raise the top feed roller and reverse the infeed to allow the operator to find the tramp metal.

Fully welded and line bored hog box

The hog chamber is a heavy-duty reinforced housing with 100% continuous welds, providing maximum corrosion resistance, and the ultimate rigidity and strength.

Split hog box

The grinding chamber rises, allowing full access to the rotor and hog box internals for ease of maintenance. The service area has been expanded to provide an open, safe, and ergonomic work environment for service techs.


Why CBI?



Industry leader

Terex® CBI, part of the wider Terex group, is an industry leader in the design and manufacturing of wood processing, biomass, and recycling equipment. CBI’s tradition of quality runs through complete lines of horizontal grinders, industrial wood chippers, flail debarkers, screens, stacking conveyors, stationary systems, and attachments.


Outproduce. Outperform. Outlast.

Since 1988, CBI machines have been purpose-built to outproduce, outperform, and outlast anything in the market. Diverging from the pack of sorely inadequate wood grinders, CBI completely reimagined the value curve by producing the ultimate workhorses for unmatched production.


State-of-the-art Technologies

CBI started with the design of the CBI Grizzly Mill with its patented, extremely rugged offset-helix rotor that uses kinetic energy in order to consume less power while aggressively outperforming anything on the market in terms of throughput. This technology became the basis for product lines like Grizzly Mill® wood waste hogs, Magnum Force® horizontal grinders, and Magnum Force® chippers. From this technology, CBI grew into one of the premier wood grinder and wood chipper manufacturers in the United States and around the world.
