Morbark Introduces New Horizontal Grinder

3200 Wood Hog Adds Additional Mid-range Option for Recyclers

Morbark, Inc., introduces a new mid-range horsepower horizontal grinder, the 3200 Wood Hog, at its Demo Days event today. Aimed at wood and green waste recycling applications, the 3200 is a compact and aggressive unit.

“We saw a need for a horizontal grinder in the 400-600 horsepower range that was smaller than our 3800 Wood Hog and more powerful than our 2600 Wood Hog,” said John Foote, Morbark’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “This is a smaller, lighter, and more affordable unit with all of the benefits of our larger grinders.”

The 3200 Wood Hog can handle green waste, regrind, sawmill residue, pallets, and logs up to 14” in diameter with ease. The 30”-diameter feedwheel is powered by an internal drive Fairfield torque hub with no chains or sprockets for more torque, greater durability and less maintenance. Other standard features include a Poclain infeed chain drive, dust suppression, remote control, air brakes and hydraulic oil cooler. Available as a tracked unit for greater mobility or with electric power, the 3200 can be built with Morbark’s most popular options, including an externally adjustable break-away torque limiter to protect the driveline and the hammermill, magnetized end pulley for ferrous metal removal, or the Quickswitch 12- and 16-knife drum assembly to easily convert from making mulch to making chips.
