Mor­bark has even more bite!

Australian Forests and Timber - - BIO -

MOR­BARK’S WORK­HORSE, the 40/36 Mi­croChip­per, is a lon­glast­ing, durable ma­chine backed by a world-class parts and ser­vice sup­port team in Lin­com Group.

The 40/36 Whole Tree Drum Chip­per is a com­pact, af­ford­able, pro­duc­tive drum chip­per de­signed with the biomass in­dus­try in mind. Equipped with the same in­ter­nal drive per­fected on Mor­bark hor­i­zon­tal grinders, along with an ex­tra wide feed open­ing, the 40/36 ag­gres­sively feeds brushy tops and limbs, quickly and ef­fort­lessly fill­ing a chip van to max­i­mum le­gal load ca­pac­ity.

Mor­bark’s Ad­van­tage 3 Drum de­creases down­time while pro­vid­ing high­erqual­ity chips. The feed sys­tem is more ef­fi­cient due to a stag­gered knife con­fig­u­ra­tion and con­tains fewer mov­ing parts, re­duc­ing main­te­nance. With low fuel con­sump­tion per ton pro­duced, this unit is eco­nom­i­cal.

The In­te­grated Con­trol Sys­tems (MICS) au­to­mat­i­cally ad­justs feed rates and mon­i­tors pres­sures and feed wheel po­si­tion to max­i­mize pro­duc­tion and en­gine ef­fi­ciency.

The Ad­van­tage 3™ drum cre­ates more uni­form chips, and re­duces op­er­at­ing and main­te­nance costs.

The 40/36 is widely utilised in the pro­duc­tion of small chips that suits pro­duc­tion of pel­lets as a new and in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar fuel in Asia, Europe and now de­vel­op­ing in Aus­tralia.

Jus­ti­fi­ably proud of the build of the 40/36, Mor­barks fac­tory team didn’t hes­i­tate in of­fer­ing an opin­ion ... “It is de­signed for both in-woods and wood yard ap­pli­ca­tions. The Mor­bark 40/36 is the in­dus­try leader in fuel chip (boiler chips) and mi­crochip pro­duc­tion (for mak­ing pel­lets), and for gen­eral land clear­ing; the best chip qual­ity in the mar­ket, with up to 98% ac­cept­able chips!

“The 40/36 was re­designed and built to meet the high North and European de­mand for fuel and pel­let chips. A lot of peo­ple here at Mor­bark had a hand in the de­sign and de­vel­op­ment of the re­designed 40/36.”

An­other who was quick to high­light the work­horse na­ture of the new ma­chine was Lin­com Group Sales Man­ager Mathew Wass. “The Mor­bark 40/36 Mi­croChip­per ef­fec­tively and ef­fi­ciently pro­duces a high vol­ume top qual­ity mi­cro-chip with min­i­mal over­size; no other ma­chine on the mar­ket can match the per­for­mance. One of the great fea­tures of the ma­chine is the abil­ity to change from pro­duc­ing mi­crochip to a larger fu­elchip which will in­crease the through­put.It doesn’t mat­ter which way you look at it, the 40/36 is a gen­uine work­horse de­signed for op­ti­mum out­put.”

The Ad­van­tage3 Chip­per Drum has been put to the test by Louisiana-based Hal­ley Tim­ber and, by all re­ports, it came through with fly­ing col­ors.

The com­pany kept de­tailed logs of the new ma­chine’s per­for­mance com­pared to a pre­vi­ous ma­chine with the old Mor­bark drum.

Ac­cord­ing to Ken­neth Hal­ley, owner of Hal­ley Tim­ber, the ap­prox­i­mate life of the knife holder in­creased from 250 hours (old drum) to 2,000 hours (Ad­van­tage3), the ap­prox­i­mate life of the knife clamp in­creased from 100 to 1,000 hours, and the ap­prox­i­mate life of the knife bolts in­creased from 100 to 250 hours.

“The dif­fer­ence has been in­cred­i­ble,” Hal­ley said.

The Ad­van­tage3 im­proves qual­ity by re­duc­ing fre­quency of sticks and twigs get­ting through; its higher in­er­tia tightly con­trols RPMs for bet­ter chips; and the ad­justable Bab­bitt-style counter-knives help en­sure con­sis­tent chip length.
