Morbark Introduces 3800XL Horizontal Grinder
Morbark today released its new 3800XL Horizontal Grinder to the market.
Date Posted: 4/1/2011
After more than a year of rigorous design review and extensive infield testing, Morbark today released its new 3800XL Horizontal Grinder to the market. Not simply an incremental extension of the 3800 platform, this new grinder contains significant changes and improvements in feeding technology which dramatically increases production capacity and operating efficiency.
The primary difference between this unit and all others is its redesigned reverse-pivot feed system which minimizes space between the feed wheel and the hammermill. There is no place for material to hide in this unit, which keeps debris moving forward with uninterrupted, steady production.
“It’s like our old Morbark 4600 on steroids! We’re getting substantially more production with better fuel efficiency, and the new remote makes it very easy to dial in exactly the speed we need to keep the belt full all the time,” said Gord Edwards of Windsor Disposal Services. “It’s so user friendly and easy to adjust, we can focus on keeping it full and filling trailers,” he added.
The Morbark 3800XL is available with a variety of engine choices up to 800 HP.
