Wood Hogs – chippers with horizontal feed
Wood Hog chippers are so-called horizontally fed chippers with a feed conveyor formed by several wide chains below, and a large hydraulically operated compression roll above. To avoid damages the wood hogs are also equipped with a breakaway torque limiter similar to the one in tub grinders.
Wood Hog chippers today feature a drum solution, which makes it possible to use the normal chipping blade, hammers and in exceptional cases even a chipper blade with one and the same drum, expanding the possible applications of the chipper even further.
Morbark Wood Hog chippers are available in four size categories, below there are a few technical details on these.
