Morbark Introduces Model 30 NCL Compact Disc Chipper

Wed June 11, 2008 - National Edition

Using the design of the Model 30 RXL Chiparvestor as its foundation, Morbark has fashioned the new, compact Model 30 NCL. Eliminating the cab, loader and feed bed from the RXL model results in a lighter, easy-to-transport chipper that is powerful and productive, according to the company.

With no feed bed, smaller landings can be used, allowing the Model 30 NCL to maneuver into tighter areas. However, its compact design doesn’t mean less productivity. With larger feed and throat openings, as well as power choices up to 1,000 hp (745 kW) the Model 30 NCL features an 83-in. (211 cm) disc with three or four knives.

Long-time dealer representative, Bud Iverson, of Nortrax Maine said, “Here is a chipper that will do anything you want when it comes to chipping tops, tree lengths and pieces down to 4 ft. in length. With a load time of 15 minutes, it’ll do 30 plus tons in a 45-foot trailer and it’s cheap to run.”

The Model 30 NCL is practical for biomass producers, clean chip producers or large stem wood operations, among others. In addition, this versatile unit is ideal positioned behind a stand alone debarker.
