Clearance: Baby Hippo Hammer Mill with Air Conveyor, 5HP

This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the table below to see how we rate our clearance items.

Note: The product images on this page are of a new item, with the exception of any images marked “Clearance item”.

Clearance Baby Hippo mill: The price on this page is for a clearance Baby Hippo hammer mill, 5HP motor with magnetic starter, material handling fan (air conveyor), collecting cyclone and dust bag system. Please call for freight shipping price. The clearance price includess crating.

Hippo hammer mills rapidly pulverize a wide range of materials from grain, beans, herbs and fibrous roots to minerals, plastics, glass, bone and recyclables. Materials enter the milling chamber and are impacted by hammers rotating at high speed. Size reduction occurs until particles can exit through the holes of a perforated screen covering the discharge. Optional, interchangeable screens offer hole sizes ranging from 0.6mm to 25mm.

The Baby Hippo is a small hammer mill with a VFD and this clearance mill is equipped with a 5 hp, 208/230/460VAC, 60hz, 3-phase inverter duty rated motor. 

As a result of hammer milling, in addition to particle size reduction some materials (glass bottles and lobster shells, for example) experience a high degree of bulk reduction, creating storage and transport efficiencies.

Milling chambers are constructed of high strength cast iron plates with bolted construction that eliminates common stress points to prevent cracking. After extended use, this method of construction allows fast, easy, on-site replacement of worn parts. Built for the demands of commercial and industrial grinding, Hippo hammer mill grinders are fast, efficient and durable, and their low cost won't break your material processing budget.

In use across the U.S. and around the world, South-African made Hippo mills are available with horsepower ratings of 5 to 100 hp.  The VFD is wired to the motor and can be programmed to reduce the rotor shaft rpm. Slowing the speed of the rotor shaft can increase the likelihood of getting a coarser grind in hemp and other products, while still utilizing the material handling fan to move product from the mill to the material collecting cyclone.

Hippo mills feature rigid hammers with replaceable tips of long wearing, impact and abrasion-resistant Bennox steel. The screen is located in the bottom half of the hammer mill chamber, covering an arc of about 180°. Milled material is transported from the discharge of the mill by an impeller fan mounted on the drive shaft, and delivered to the cyclone and dust separator. Suction created by the material handling fan aids transport of the product through screen holes.

Stock interchangeable screens for the Baby Hippo mill are available with hole sizes of 0.6, 0.8, 1.0, 1.2, 1.6, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 20 and 25mm. The top half of the milling chamber swings open for easy access to the hammers and screen, and screens can be changed out in just 30 seconds without tools.

  • “Thanks for the fast shipping. Everything arrived packaged very well. Product quality is great and we'll be continued customers.”

    – Timothy Whirley, MD

Hippo mills are manufactured to high precision standards, with non-cast components cut by laser or plasma for excellent fit. High quality bearings are used, and lubricated with quality synthetic lubricant.

All Hippo milll grinders are tested before shipping and are covered by a 1 year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

Free test grinding: Pleasant Hill Grain has extensive milling experience and can make recommendations for a wide range of grinding needs. We can also test mill samples of your materials; please call 866-467-6123 or email to make arrangements.

*Output rate is based on dry corn for reference, and will vary substantially for other materials based on factors including density and frangibility.
**Rotor RPM is infinitely variable with optional VFD (variable frequency drive) for fine-tuning of speed and particle size.
***Most product will exit even finer than the size of the holes in the screen.

  1. The ratings are for cosmetic condition only. All Clearance Store merchandise is guaranteed to function perfectly.
  2. Items are offered under normal terms of sale: Please review policies before ordering.
  3. Some clearance items ship in plain (but carefully boxed) packaging, rather than the manufacturer’s original carton.
  4. Important: All clearance items may have been exposed to various allergenic foods.

Bottom Line: If you’re a highly detail-oriented person, we recommend sticking to “R1.” But after a week’s use, the only real difference between one of these items and a brand new one will be the money you saved.
