In the first part of our horizontal grinder buying guide, we discussed the considerations that should be factored in when purchasing a horizontal grinder, such as feedstock, horsepower, and size. But identifying the right model of grinder is only half the battle.
The other half is choosing the right company to partner with—one that will continue to support you after the initial sale is finished. Like any machine, horizontal grinders will require service, maintenance, and replacement parts. The way the company you purchased your grinder from chooses to handle providing parts and service will have a huge effect on the success of your operation.
Consider Replacement Parts
Through usage and wear and tear over time, horizontal grinder teeth, screens, and other wear parts will incur damage and require replacement. Not only do damaged parts compromise the safety and efficiency of your grinding process, but in certain situations, they could bring your operation to a standstill while you wait for replacements to arrive.
With respect to the company you choose to partner with: do they have the expertise to help you identify the parts you need when you yourself aren’t sure? How will they ensure you can get replacement parts in a timely manner?
In much of the same vein, the quality of service your horizontal grinder company provides should be a top consideration. A breakdown at an inopportune time can be inconvenient; a breakdown at an inopportune time and a lack of responsive service can be disastrous.
A good horizontal grinder company understands quick, reliable service is necessary to maximize your operation’s uptime and profits. Service technicians should be responsive and accessible, no matter where you’re located.
