20 November 2023
Wood chippers from UK-based manufacturer Timberwolf are to be made available in the US market next year, it has been announced.
Products from the company, which is a subsidiary of Alamo Group, will be marketed as the Morbark TW series and made available through fellow Alamo subsidiary Morbark in Q1 of 2024.
The announcement was made at last week’s TCI Expo in St. Louis, Missouri, where the company highlighted a number of its products.
These include the TW 280HB Hybrid, TW 280PHB Gas-Powered and TW 230VTR Tracked brush chippers.
The company said it designed the TW 280HB Hybrid to “meet the growing industry trend toward more sustainable solutions.” It comes with a processing throughput of over 7 tonnes per hour, peak power of 62HP (46kW) but only 25HP (18kW) engine-level emissions.
Meanwhile, the 280PHB is described as a powerful 8 inch gas-powered chipper designed to process timber quickly and efficiently, while the TW 230VTR Tracked brush chipper is said to provide the transportability needed for working in even the most remote locations
At the same time, Morbark launched its new BVR line of hand-fed brush chippers at the show. The range comprises of the BVR 10, BVR 13, BVR 16, BVR 19 and BVR 22 with chipping capacities from 12 to 20 inches.
The line features new configuration of the brush chipper line which is said to streamline the overall upkeep and maintenance routine, reducing customer downtime and increasing overall productivity in the process.
Other features include Morbark’s ZeroClutch technology, reverse-style pivot assembly and an infeed-mounted control panel.
Brad Boehler, Morbark president and CEO, said, “The BVR line of brush chippers showcases Morbark’s commitment to innovation and customer-driven solutions. This modular, elegant design is more streamlined and provides easily accessible maintenance and simplified operating experience for our customers, ultimately leading to less downtime and higher productivity.
“Morbark is synonymous with innovation because it’s something that’s in our lifeblood and a part of who we are as an organization. Our founder, Norval Morey, never accepted that he could not change the state of the industry, and this is something that we live and breathe at Morbark. A constant desire to innovate and a constant desire to be better than we were yesterday.”
