Morbark, LLC, has added a smaller flail option to its product line, the 223 Stand-alone Flail. Easy to transport, the model is efficient and robust for in-woods chipping applications.

“Through extensive market research that included design input from customers, we saw the need for a smaller, more affordable option that gives contractors the versatility of being able to produce clean chips or transition back to producing a fuel chip with relative ease, which is key in an ever-changing chip market” said Michael Stanton, Morbark Industrial Products Business Unit Director. “The Morbark 223 Flail gives contractors the power of our larger equipment with the portability of a smaller unit to serve diverse markets.”

The 223 Flail is designed to work in conjunction with chippers like the Morbark 23 Chiparvestor, the 40/36 Whole Tree Drum Chipper or similar machines. With a large 56” x 23” infeed opening, the 223 Flail accepts logs up to 23” in diameter at a feed rate from 70-150 feet per minute. The Morbark Integrated Control System allows for fine adjustment of feed rate and flail drum speed so that bark removal is maximized and removal of “good” fiber is minimized for superior end products.

With the widest flailing chamber in the market, the 223 reduces hassle while feeding and allows for additional stems to be fed during operation. The most ground clearance and debris plow pushing power in the industry eliminates the potential of plugging, while four independent stabilizers level the machine on nearly any type of jobsite.

Other key features of the 223 flail include the dual horizontal segmented flail drums — each equipped with eight flail chain rods — which are more durable and provide longer wear life than traditional tubular style drums used by competitors, and a large work/inspection area for easy access to engine and hydraulic components, for easier maintenance and reduced costs.

Morbark has produced aggressive, highly productive stand-alone flails and combination flail Chiparvestors since 1990. Morbark Flails are designed to provide unmatched flexibility in controlling individual variable flail drum speeds, feed rate and other parameters, while meeting the challenges of varying timber, climate, species and conditions.

The new Morbark 223 Flail makes its debut at the Mid-South Forestry Equipment Show on August 26-27 in Starkville, Miss., shown by Morbark dealer B&G Equipment.
