Work It!

Smiley Lifting Solutions offers Personnel Work Platforms for boom trucks in two configurations, either a one-man or two-man basket. Both platforms are fixed to the boom and are available with either a pin brake or hydraulic brake system to keep the platform from swinging. The platforms are made for all manufacturers’ models of boom trucks, including Unic, National, Terex, Manitex, Altec, Elliott and more. All work baskets meet or exceed all federal regulations.

Keep it Short

Arborwear has introduced new shorts. The Estimator Short is made from soft, durable, 7-ounce brushed cotton canvas, prewashed for comfort and true sizing. The Estimators feature a 9.5-inch inseam and rugged gusset crotch along with darts in the rear, ensuring comfort and mobility. They come in even waist sizes from 30 to 40 in khaki and steel colors.

The Back 40 Short is made of 10-ounce, prewashed, pre-shrunk cotton canvas, featuring a second layer in the back for extra protection, recessed rear welt pockets and dual utility pockets. With a 9-inch inseam, they come in even waist sizes from 30 to 42 in khaki and moss colors.

Belt-Driven Chipper

The S.H.M. Model WC3000 from Swampy Hollow Mfg. is a belt-driven chipper designed to be operated by the PTO shafts of tractors with as little as 16 hp. It fits Category I three-point hitches and has efficient gravity feed. The hopper opening measures 25 by 18 inches, and the chip opening measures 3 by 5.5 inches. The chip discharge chute can be rotated into two fixed positions. It also features double-sided knives, standard chip anvil and durable powder-coat finish.

It’s Hammer Time

Loftness announced the Tree Hammer 360, a PTO-driven right-of-way mulcher. The 4,700-pound unit can be front or rear-mounted on tractors from 80 to 160 hp. A hydraulically operated rear mulching door and tree-pusher bar are optional, as well as a shear bar. The 24 hammers are individually bolted on for ease of service and replacement. The ribbed rotor design reduces parasitic drag and eliminates wearing through the surface of skinned/covered rotors. It also features an 80-inch cutting width, 260 hp gearbox, 3-inch double-tapered roller bearings and single or dual spring-loaded belt drive.
