  3. Discount percentages for R1 and R2 items are minimum discounts... Some items are marked even lower.

  5. 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.

Expanded Ratings Descriptions

R1 Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.
R2 Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.
FR Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.
D Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.
DIS These items have never been used but we no longer sell them at full price in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.
U Has had light use.
SDB Has moderate damage or blemish on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing, or paint blemish.
NOS A brand new item that isn't the newest model.

  • Industrial hemp: Very happy
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We’re very happy with our Model 1.5 Hippo hammer mill. It’s been trouble-free and reliable. Using a 1/4” metal screen we can produce in excess of 1,000 lbs of hemp powder per hour.

    The mill is care-free compared to the high maintenance machines we used previously. The motor has ample horsepower to power through the industrial hemp, which is rougher than standard medical marijuana/cannabis plant material. The Hippo just doesn't doesn't bog down as our previous machines were prone to.
    The industrial hemp is a sticky, glue-like substance with high oil content, so it’s important to us that the metal screens and system clean up easily after processing, and the Hippo's tool-less screen access is as easy as easy gets.

    We’ve run the mill constantly for five months with no problems at all. If you want a well constructed and designed machine, buy a Hippo. Pleasant Hill was perfect to deal with, as well. Great experience all the way around.

  • Great then & now
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Grandad bought a small Hippo hammer mill long before my time and we still use it on the farm. When we needed more capacity the longevity of that one made our decision easy, and it looks to me like they still build them the same way... heavy duty and well designed.

  • Just Right
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The Hippo's a great piece of equipment that fits well into our production process. And based on its very solid construction we look for it to serve us for many years. We process about 4,000 lbs. of wood chips in an eight hour day with the Hippo #1 model. The chunks range 1-6 inches in length going into the mill. The 6mm screen produces a powder that we compress into wood pellets for use in BBQ’s and wood stoves, and the 25mm screen makes landscaping mulch.

    A good investment all around.

  • Works Wonderfully
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The mill works wonderfully for our glass grinding project. We started with a .6mm screen but they actually produced particles finer than we wanted. We sized the screen up a little and got just the particle size we desired.

    I’m an engineer and appreciate the basic design of the mill. It allows for consistent operation with very little down time. There are no proprietary parts and if replacement parts are needed they can be easily sourced. The solid cast iron construction has proven to be extremely strong and resistant to the rigorous use we’ve subjected the mill to. We plan to add a larger hopper and a conveyor system to eliminate the need for manual feeding.

  • Lots of grinding, little dust
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Can’t believe how little dust the mill is making. With all of our previous hammer mills dust was always a major issue. I guess it's an airflow thing, but whatever it is, I like it. Hippo's long history makes me feel good about parts availability in the future too. Good all around.

  • Hippo's got the goods
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The cast iron plates on the mill really make a difference in their lifespan, when I compare the Hippo to welded mild steel mills I’ve run in the past. They wear a lot longer, and sections are easy to swap out.

  • Top quality and top service
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Not often one deals with a company that provides both top quality and excellent service and then provides very competitive pricing, but Pleasant Hill Grain did just that with the Hippo Hammer Mill we just bought. The screens with the product are built to last and are precise in their mesh size.

  • Works well!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We’re running a 15mm screen in our Baby Hippo and it works well! Processing is fast. Because of the good processing results we’ve had with this mill we’ve decided we plan to buy another larger Hippo Hammer mill.

  • Good for glass grinding
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Our project in the city of Billings is grinding waste glass bottles. We recycling the ground glass as aggregate in concrete, keeping it out of the landfill and putting it to productive use.

    To maintain full strength in the concrete we need a sand-like consistency without much dust. The Hippo grinder gives us what we need using the 8mm screen. We’re very happy with it, and the longevity looks very good. We also have ideas about modifying the hammer tips for shredding plastic jugs and PC motherboards.

    This machine opens a lot of opportunities for moving into other green-environment projects. It’s a solid machine.

  • Good Investment
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Our customers require a very fine 60 mesh chick pea flour. With the 0.6mm screen, we’re getting flour that fine, and at a good rate of 1,800 lbs/hour. The Hippo #69 hammer mill was a good investment, living up to all expectations.
