June 28, 2017 - Continental Biomass Industries (CBI) will be exhibiting at the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Logging & Biomass Expo held in Laurinburg, North Carolina from September 15-16. Guests will have two days to see live demonstrations of CBI’s high-performance wood grinders and commercial wood chippers. The CBI exhibit will be located just inside the entrance at Live Site 1. Show hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for both days of the show, with live CBI demos happening throughout the event.

“CBI is partnering with Powerscreen Mid-Atlantic to showcase leading forestry equipment at the show,” said Art Murphy, director of sales & marketing for Terex Environmental Equipment. “Powerscreen Mid-Atlantic has done an outstanding job representing the CBI and Ecotec lines in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. The best part about a live demo show like the Mid-Atlantic Logging & Biomass Expo is that the machines speak for themselves and we welcome the opportunity to go head to head with the competition. Nothing beats seeing a CBI machine run in person and afterwards climbing up on it and taking a closer look.”

Tentative list of show machines (subject to change):

CBI ChipMax 484B Portable Wood Chipper
The CBI ChipMax 484B whole tree chipper hit the market with an eye on productivity and customer flexibility. The rotor, chipper box, and feed system are the strongest in its class as this drum chipper provides owners with years of trouble free service. Featuring two rotor options, the CBI 484B can make high-quality fuel chips custom sized from 12–25 mm or “micro-chips” from 2–12 mm from logs up to 24″ in diameter.

Magnum Force 5800BT Horizontal Grinder
The CBI 5800BT portable horizontal grinder was developed to feature the same principles of the proven CBI 6800BT grinder but is purpose-built for contractors dealing with lower production needs or transportation restrictions. Like CBI’s other horizontal grinders, the CBI 5800BT never compromises strength or performance.


Magnum Force 6800BT Horizontal Grinder
The CBI 6800BT horizontal grinder has been specifically designed for land clearing companies and yard waste processors who demand high-volume throughput and maximum reliability. It’s capable of processing land clearing debris, pallets, clean industrial waste, stumps, and logs as quickly as it can be loaded and is well suited to produce highly-marketable mulch through its regrinding capability.

CBI manufactures and distributes a complete line of portable and stationary grinders, shredders, chippers, flail debarkers, and attachments for composting, forestry, biomass recovery, and wood-waste processing. For more information, visit
