Whether used alone or in combination with a Morbark whole tree chipper to create a total fiber utilization system, the 2455 Stand-Alone Flail is built for maximized output. With three top feed rollers mounted on yoke assemblies, two stationary bottom feed rollers, and a bark discharge conveyor that folds for transport, this machine has many features perfect for whole tree chipping. The enclosed weatherized operator’s cab and color-tinted safety glass helps protect the operator.
Flail drive is a closed loop hydraulic design with separate hydraulic systems to operate each flail drum. Each system is complete with electric tach and controls in operator’s cab.
This unique infeed system spreads multiple stems apart, which assists with more complete bark removal.
Optional Cab & Loader
The enclosed operator’s cab includes six-way adjustable seat, joystick controls, combination air conditioner/heater and emergency shut-down system.
Mor-Lift Model 500 Knuckleboom Loader has 23′ reach, 270-degree swing and 17,200 lb. lift at 10′. Mor-Lift Model 1000 and foot pedal swing for loader also available.
