www.columbusequipment.com Ohio’s Dependable Dealer Morbark has introduced upgraded options for its Alpha and Wearwolf lines of mill inserts, and customers who use the Alpha 3 inserts have seen wear life improve by as much as 100 percent, according to Aaron Dunham, prod- uct support representative for the Environmental Division. Compared to the Alpha 2 or aftermarket inserts, customers get about twice as much wear on the Alpha 3, depending on position and application. “Over the long run, you can save around 40% because you won’t have to change them nearly as often,” Dunham said. A couple factors are behind the improved wear: The Alpha 3 has a deeper penetration of tungsten-carbide than the Alpha 2 inserts. It features six welds instead of four. The manufacturing process also employs a hotter weld than on the Alpha 2. Alpha 3 inserts perform better in all applications than Alpha 2s or aftermarket inserts, including green waste, scrap wood, asphalt shingles, demolition waste, and regrinding. Better insert performance also results in reduced fuel costs, users find. Morbark’s Wearwolf inserts are for grinding clean logs or forestry debris like tree tops with no dirt or other waste mixed in. The Wearwolf Generation 2 has a strip of carbide welded onto the knife edge for longer wear. Again, customers are finding they get considerably more run time by upgrading to Gen 2 inserts. “Whichever inserts you use, it is crucial to use Morbark bolts and nuts. We have found that aftermarket bolts and nuts are not as strong as Morbark bolts and nuts. We’ve seen aftermarket bolts break and damage the inserts. It’s worth the upfront investment to get the performance and reliability you need over time,” Dunham added.
