No-Nife Hog Applications

Williams No-Nife Wood Hogs or Bark Hogs have proven themselves as top performers in the forest products industry. Economical size reduction is the first important step for any bark hog or wood hog. This is important whether the product is to be sold or used straight from the wood hog, or to be manufactured into secondary products.

The hogged product can be sold for garden mulch, animal bedding, and litter, or it can be used in the manufacture of particle board and fireplace logs. In the pulp industry, Williams No-Nife Wood Hogs are extensively used to reduce bark and broken pulpwood following drum, hydraulic, steam, or mechanical debarkers.
