Morbark launches quick switch conversion kit

Morbark, Inc. announced the commercial release of the new Morbark® Quick Switch grinder-to-chipper conversion kit. The Quick Switch, available for Morbark track and rubber-tire horizontal grinder models 3800, 4600, 4600XL and 6600, makes it possible for current grinder owners to produce a marketable chip by simply modifying the hammermill of their horizontal grinder.  The design of the Morbark grinder-to-chipper conversion kit allows an average conversion of a grinder to a chipper in less than three hours.

With one machine now capable of producing either chips or mulch, Morbark grinder owners are afforded opportunities for significant diversity without the purchase of a second machine.

“This is a tremendous innovation for our customers remarked John Foote, V.P. of Sales and Marketing at Morbark. “The Quick Switch’s ability to change from grinding to chipping and back creates opportunities for horizontal grinder owners by giving them new markets to supplement their grinding operations.  It is an ideal solution for anyone involved in, or wanting to be involved in, supplying biomass fuel.”

“We expect the average conversion to be under three hours depending on the overall maintenance and condition of the mill”, remarks Gary Bardos, V.P. of Manufacturing for Morbark.  “We have been able to produce very high quality fuel and pellet chips during beta testing in the field. These mills will produce a chip between 5/8” and 3/4” with some level of control toward reducing the size through managing the feed rates,” Bardos added.
