Timberwolf produces an average of 100 semi loads of wood products per week, delivering various products to pulp mills, biomass energy, firewood, and wood mat manufacturing. And the only chippers they run are Morbark.
For Caudill Chipping, a non-stop deluge during the spring of 2011 plagued them to such a degree that, for a while, it looked as if a job they were working might never get done. Today, the region has dried out, and Caudill Chipping has moved on to new tracts. But not without realizing that, working as a single unit, even the toughest jobs—in the worst possible weather—can get done.
Prepared to do a regular hours-based replacement of an existing chipper, Halley Timber took delivery of a newly redesigned Morbark 40/36 chipper and quickly became proponents of that unit’s capabilities. More importantly, however, they were able to confirm what the company had touted during the sale: the new unit’s drum—called the Advantage 3 high-performance chipping drum—yielded a dramatic reduction in maintenance-related downtime and wear part costs.
