Morbark Shows “What’s Next” at CONEXPO 2017

March 1, 2017

“Imagine What’s Next,” proclaims the Association of Equipment Manufacturers of the CONEXPO/CON-AGG trade show, and Morbark® is ready to show the world what’s next! Morbark, LLC, a leading manufacturer of forestry, biomass, tree care, sawmill, and wood recycling equipment, will showcase exciting new products — as well as kick off its 60th Anniversary celebration — at this year’s CONEXPO show.

Situated in the Recycling Pavilion in the Silver Lot at CONEXPO, in Booth #S-5682, Morbark will feature many facets of its product offerings, including parts, Boxer mini-skid steers, tree care equipment, and, of course, its large, industrial machinery.

Industrial Equipment

NEW Wood Hog: Perhaps most exciting will be the unveiling of a revolutionary new Wood Hog horizontal grinder, the 3400XT! Powerful, productive and versatile, this machine will be sure to turn heads. Members of the media, as well as all CONEXPO attendees are encouraged to attend the official debut of the 3400XT at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 7, just one hour after the opening of the show.

Morbark Pronar Trommel Screen: Morbark debuted this machine just over a month ago at the COMPOST2017 in Los Angeles and announced a partnership with Pronar, a company based in Poland that specializes in the manufacture and sale of machinery and equipment for agriculture, municipal services and the transportation industry. Available in four model sizes, these mobile trommel screens are perfectly suited to work with a wide variety of materials, including soil, compost, municipal waste, coal, aggregate and biomass. The model at CONEXPO is a MPB 20.55g Track Trommel Screen.

HT1042 Slow-Speed Shredder: The HT1042 is an aggressive, versatile slow-speed shredder designed as a universal machine for reducing wood (demolition wood, green waste, etc.), industrial waste (construction, demolition, tires, plastic, etc.) and other waste streams.

Tree Care Equipment

Morbark will be showing three of our popular Beever™ chippers: the M12RX, M18R Track and the M20R Forestry Track models.

Boxer Compact Utility Loaders

The two largest models in the Boxer mini-skid steer line will be on display in the Morbark booth: the 950HD and the brand-new 700HDX, introduced at The Rental Show this week in Orlando, Fla. The 950HD features the industry’s highest hinge pin height, allowing it to easily dump over a 6′ (1.8-meter) side wall and a class-leading 48-HP (36 kW) diesel engine. The 700HDX boasts a unique hydraulically expandable undercarriage — from 35″ (89 cm) to 43.5″ (111 cm) — allowing the operator to retract the undercarriage for passages as narrow as 36″ (91 cm) wide then expand for increased stability while in operation by simply pulling or pushing a control lever.

Morbark Parts

Morbark has some exciting developments in wear parts. The company now offers heavy-duty wear parts for competitive equipment as well as for its own machines.

Morbark also has introduced three versions of its popular Alpha® inserts: the cost-effective Alpha 1; the original Alpha, now named the Alpha 2; and the longer-lasting Alpha 3. The Morbark Parts Team will be featuring pallet sales on many Morbark inserts.

Recently, the company put the Alpha inserts to the test against GrinderCrusherScreen’s GCS14B1 insert in a working customer site, encountering the same challenges customers face in the field every day. Materials processed throughout the testing period included primary grind, regrind and third grind of dirty green waste; construction and demolition waste; and clean wood chips. In total, 20,450 yards of waste were processed, equating to approximately 255 yards per hour. The results clearly showed the Morbark Alpha 3 not only out-performed the GCS insert, but also can save operations thousands of dollars in wear parts on an annual basis.
