SPOKANE, WA, April 13, 2010 (The Spokesman-Review) -The grinder sucked in lodgepole pine branches. It chewed them up and spit out wood chips. About two dozen logging contractors watched Monday as the Bruks mobile grinder, a Swedish- made machine, consumed a two-story-high slash pile on Bunco Road near Silverwood Theme Park.

The chips will be trucked to a Lewiston pulp mill and burned for power generation.

Modern Machinery Co., a heavy equipment dealer in Spokane, arranged the demonstration.
