Morbark has debuted the 2400X and 3000X Wood Hog horizontal grinders. Both machines can be equipped with tracks (XT models), and the 3000X can be built as a fifth-wheel/dual-axle unit (3000X) or pintle hitch/tri-axle (3000XP).

Ideal for niche markets such as municipal solid waste, pallet recycling, sawmills, nurseries, and tree care debris, both grinders can be used for processing yard waste, brush, and other mixed woody feedstock into saleable product. They are designed to be modular and are available in multiple configurations for various applications.

One of the most important features of the 2400X and 3000X is their compact size. Their standard width (2400X: 7 feet, 6 inches; 3000X: 8 feet, 2 inches) make them within the legal transport width in any country. The models also share design features like the sloped infeed sides, which improve operator sight lines for more efficient loading of material, and easy-to-load grate systems.

The 2400X ranges in horsepower from 188 to 203, while the 3000X has engine options from 350 to 577 hp. Like all Morbark Wood Hog models, both the 2400X and 3000X also will be available with electric power.
