Morbark Model 40/36 Targeted Toward Biomass Industry

Tue May 13, 2008 - National Edition
Construction Equipment Guide

Morbark’s Model 40/36 whole tree chipper is specifically geared for the biomass industry.

Equipped with the same internal drive as on Morbark horizontal grinders, along with an extra wide feed opening, the Model 40/36 aggressively feeds brushy tops and limbs. This whole tree chipper fills a chip van to maximum legal load capacity. At 8 ft. 6 in. wide (2.6 m) this compact unit is easily transportable and requires no permits to move. The economical chipper also offers low fuel consumption.

The 36-in. diameter by 40 in. wide (91 by 101 cm) drum holds eight knives in a staggered configuration. Morbark’s IQAN system monitors engine parameters as well as hydraulic pressures and temperatures and also allows for utilization of remote diagnostics. Power options are available up to 700 hp (522 kW) Cat or John Deere. Wireless remote control and four hydraulic stabilizers complete the package.

Making its debut at the Northeastern Forest Products Expo in Burlington, Vt., in early May, the 40/36 generated an enthusiastic response. One attendee said of the end product, “it was hard to differentiate the chips from those produced by a disc chipper.”
