Morbark 4600XL Wood Hog horizontal grinderThe 4600XL Wood Hog has a hammermill that is 14 percent larger than that of its predecessor model (increasing tip swing to 36 inches), and it has horsepower options to up to 860. The new machine has 18 hammers that provide aggressive, multi-purpose grinding, says Morbark, and it uses an internal, planetary-drive feed wheel with no chains or sprockets. Morbark’s Iqan System, a standard feature on the 4600XL, is aimed at boosting production by providing a consistent feed and, thereby, reducing downtime. An optional satellite modem provides a wireless link between the factory and the machine, allowing factory service technicians to access machine functions and to diagnose problems from their computers in the Winn, Mich., office. The new grinder also is available as a track-mounted unit.
