About Progrind Systems, LLC:
Founded in 2004, Progrind Systems manufactures patented grinders for use in construction, agriculture, and environmental work. As the Regulatory system governing clearing is phasing out on-site burning and the cost of hauling to landfills is becoming cost prohibitive, grinding is quickly emerging as a cost-effective solution. The unique Progrind system can go into a forest and selectively grind bug infested or storm damaged trees; do thinning work, a fire prevention tool by grinding underbrush; and can be also be used on an active fire line clearing combustible material.
