Morbark LLC, Winn, Michigan, has announced it will be placing a greater emphasis on providing forestry, recycling and tree care customers with the option of purchasing factory-refurbished and remanufactured equipment. For many years, Morbark has been restoring customer-owned equipment, trade-in machines and acquired units back to a field-ready state. The company’s dedication of personnel and resources to this business initiative is in response to the increasing demand for this type of equipment.
- Rebuilt: Morbark rebuilt machines have been stripped to the frame and inspected throughout. Components with less than 50 percent wear life left are replaced, issues are repaired and the unit is given a complete clean, paint and decal service. These units come with a full 90-day parts warranty and engine warranty where applicable.
- Refurbished: A refurbished machine has had safety issues inspected/repaired, any obvious needs addressed and the whole unit is touched up. A 90-day 50/50 parts warranty is standard for a machine ready to produce.
- Used: A basic used machine has safety issues addressed, plus basic servicing as to filters, oils and knives/tips. The “do-it yourselfer” can get started with this machine, refine the machine as he goes or even just use it as a back-up unit.
