Fastest. In tests comparing all of the major manufacturersâ€™ grinders, the Peerless ground at least 2-3 times faster. The Peerless, with its unique grinding head and reel clamping design, can make heavier grinds with less vibration. And just because you can take heavy grinds doesn’t mean you have to. This unique design also allows you to take very light grinds without grinding wheel hop or chatter.
Most precise. Only the Peerless can grind straight to within .001 inches and grind cylindrical and parallel within .002 inches. We can do this because of our revolutionary Total Parallel Grindingâ„¢ and Pi Tape measuring system.
Innovative. The new TorqueControlâ„¢ Automatic Relief Grinding system allows you to choose the optimum grinding wheel width for the reel you are grinding so you can get the job done more quickly. The Peerless 7000 features adjustable legs so you can set the grinder to a comfortable operating height. It also features an automatic front door that opens and closes with the flip of a switch.
Grind your way. The Peerless 7000 lets you choose only the options you need. Options can be added when the grinder is purchased or at any time in the future.
The table is made from 3/8 inch thick steel and welded into a single piece. We then precision machine the top of the table to be parallel with the grinding head track shafts to within .002 inches.
This means that the grinding wheel will travel parallel to the reel mounting surface to within .002 inches.
This is the foundation for the grinding concept we call Total Parallel Grindingâ„¢
The track shafts are induction hardened, turned, ground, polished and hard chrome plated for maximum precision and durability. Then they are mounted directly to the precision machined, all welded steel table.
The reel support rails are precision machined, case hardened, blanchard ground in sets and hard nickel plated. They are also mounted directly on to the precision machined, all welded steel table.
Our patented pi tape measures the actual taper of the reel to within .001 inches. Other systems try to measure the reel shape from the center shaft, which can typically vary by .015 inches or more. Not good enough when all of the mower manufacturers specify less that .010 taper for their reels.
The chain clamps are versatile and easy to use. Because they clamp the whole reel frame directly to the table, vibration and movement at the roller bearings is eliminated. This allows you to grind harder and faster and still get a better quality grind.
The polycarbonate front shield opens and closes with the flip of a switch and allows unobstructed access. Because it is both loaded (shown with the optional Simplex 500 lift table) and operated from the front, you can place it up against the wall or in a corner, taking up a lot less of your shop space.
With over 12 inches of adjustment, the legs let you set the grinder to a comfortable operating height.
