Morbark has unveiled their new 3400XT Wood Hog horizontal grinder at this year’s CONEXPO show.
The company said the new 3400XT is of a standard width of 8’4″ (2.53 m), making it within the legal transport width in any country, no matter what engine is used.
They said the model accommodates engines from 540 to 800 horsepower (402 to 596 kW), so it is ideal for a broad range of applications in a wide variety of markets worldwide. Like all of Morbark Wood Hog models, the 3400XT also is available with electric power.
“Morbark listened closely to customer feedback while developing the design for the 3400XT,” said Michael Stanton, Morbark Director of Industrial Sales.
“The result is that we were able to provide the features our customers want and the versatility they need, while staying true to our proven technology.”
“The size of the 3400XT allows the same model, using a broad range of engines, to be configured for multiple applications and global markets without additional design considerations,” Mr Stanton said.
New operator-friendly features
The infeed bed is an additional 60.96 cm longer with sloped sides. This configuration improves operator sight lines for more efficient loading of material. Standard on the 3400XT is a removable infeed chain return floor, which allows excess material to fall away to minimize the wear on the floor, bed chain and inserts, particularly useful in land-clearing or other applications with dirty material.
Other key features
Morbark said its exclusive driveline protection system is standard on all Wood Hog models. The externally adjustable, break-away torque limiter helps to protect the driveline and hammer mill from catastrophic damage caused by contaminants.
The 3400XT is available with either Strickland or CAT undercarriage options. While the first unit built is a tracked unit, this model can be manufactured in a trailer or stationary unit as well (3400X).
The Morbark 3400XT Woodhog will be available exclusively in Australia through Lincom Group.
