The best-selling coloring system ever built.

It’s true: There are more Sahara X3s kicking out mulch around the world than any other coloring system. That’s because this machine is engineered to make more out of every ounce of colorant. And you can cut water use in half on every pile of product.

You can’t beat this system.

Muscle meets efficiency in the design of the X3, reflecting years of innovation from our team and input from our customers. Inside, you’ll find the most aggressive mixing chamber ever made to color mulch, surrounded by seamlessly integrated safety features.

1. Active Start-up Monitoring

Before a single blade moves a single inch, the X3 sounds an alarm and flashes warning lights for everybody in its vicinity.

2. GEM

GEM is a touchscreen interface that also does all the thinking, all the time, to provide real-time data on everything from inventory to invoicing.

3. Mixing Chamber

The X3’s patented dual-chamber design and arrangement of blades work together to increase retention time and kick out a consistent product.

Sahara x3 callout

The product is the whole point.

Thanks to the dual-chamber design of the mixing chamber, each bucket of mulch spends the same amount of time inside. That kind of consistency is why your piles of product will be the same color across hours, days weeks or even seasons.

Each piece, every which way.

How do we pack so much muscle into such an efficient machine? The key is a patented process that we call bilateral agitation. With blades placed at mathematically precise angles, your Sahara increases retention time while also conserving energy.
