Natural Products gets logs up to 4 or 5 feet in diameter, so the fewer that have to be split, the less double-handling is required. Natural Products’ parent company owns several Morbarks, and they have been highly durable. “Our mechanics have found that maintenance is less on the Morbarks, and changing out screens and performing maintenance is easier on them than on other brands,” Arnold said. “A few years ago, we looked at different brands of tub grinders, but our owner was happy with Morbark and we decided to go with the Morbark Track Tub Grinder as well.” Another factor in that decision was the support offered by Columbus Equipment Company. “Columbus Equipment Company has been great for us. They are very responsive and provide service quickly,” Arnold commented. “When a supplier is not located locally, it’s a potential concern, but Columbus Equipment has always given us the service we need. The sales people and technicians have been very good. Sometimes when we need to correct something, Columbus Equipment technicians will walk us through it over the phone. And they can get us parts overnight.” Limit how much you handle the raw materials: It’s a simple, cost-saving philosophy for Natural Products, and Columbus Equipment Company is happy to supply the equipment necessary to deliver on that commitment.
