Power Up

Fecon’s new BHP 350 Power Pack maximizes excavator-based mulching performance. A Power Management microcontroller directs all available power to the mulcher and manages engine and hydraulic performance. A control panel inside the excavator’s cab allows the operator to monitor operation and see that the mulcher is getting maximum horsepower at all times. Additional benefits include reduced fuel consumption and improved engine power. The BHP 350 features a 350 hp Cummins engine powering two 140 GPM hydraulic pumps.

Plant a Tree

Dakota Peat & Equipment has introduced the remote-controlled Model 65 Tree Transplanter, which allows operators to transplant from anywhere on a job site. The Model 65 cuts a 65-inch hole and features externally mounted gate cylinders, designed to eliminate ledges and corners that collect debris. This industrial-grade transplanter features a no-lube lift track and blades with replaceable cutting edges made of wear- resistant materials.

The transplanter uses high-grade materials that are finished with powder-coated paint to provide a durable exterior finish. The Model 65 also features separate water and hydraulic tanks with a hydraulic water pump.

Spray it All

The 38470 Spray Thick Drum Pump Sprayer from Hudson features a diaphragm pump and two-piece discharge pipes. Powered by a 5 hp Honda engine, it has a 5-foot hose connected to both the suction and discharge ends, allowing easy cleaning and flushing of the spray gun and wand. The closed system keeps material in-line between jobs. It attaches to a 55-gallon drum or a 5-gallon pail and includes pump, spray gun with 18-inch straight wand and 30-inch curved wand, two TeeJet brass nozzle assemblies and a 30-foot spray hose with quick disconnects.

Going Solo

Weighing in at 13.9 pounds, the new Solo 681 chain saw can handle a 36-inch guide bar and delivers 6.4 hp with an 80.7cc, gas-fired, two-cycle engine. This model also features an advanced vibration isolation system, a maintenance-free ignition system and a 25.4-ounce tank capacity.

Skinny Skid Steer

The S100 skid steer loader from Bobcat Co. features a 1,000-pound rated operating capacity, a spacious cab and a completely new instrument panel. The S100 is 50 inches wide with bucket, has a lift height of 8 feet 6 inches and an operating weight of 4,110 pounds. It can travel up to 6.5 mph and has a 13.1 GPM hydraulic pump capacity.

The loader’s four-cylinder, 33.5 hp, diesel engine is transversely mounted, which allows the machine to be equipped with the same belt drive system as other Bobcat skid steer loaders for powering the hydrostatic drive system and hydraulic pumps.

Over 35 attachments are approved for the S100, and can be put on quickly with the standard Bob-Tach mounting system.

Make Tracks

The F-Series steel track system by Loegering Mfg. provides traction while increasing flotation. This over-the-tire system provides the most pad-to-ground contact for maximum flotation and features a double-pivot design, which makes it easy to maneuver. The track system features hammer-forged steel pads, which provide the most wear-resistant pad bottom, and is equipped with threaded DuraPins for longer life and ease of replacement. Each component of the system is individually hardened before assembly to increase durability and longevity.

Turbo Time

The DK90 tractor from Kioti features a 90 hp, 268-cubic-inch, turbocharged, Perkins diesel engine and 16 shuttle gears. An available front-end loader and other implements attach easily to a stabilized, telescopic, three-point hitch.

The DK90’s one-lever joystick simplifies loader control. Standard features include a rear differential lock, auto PTO switch, wet disc brakes and on-demand, electric-control, four-wheel drive.

The cab of the DK90 offers a suspension seat, power steering, a tilting wheel, air conditioning and a radio/CD player.

Defend Your Trees

Bayer Environmental Science’s CoreTect tablets can be used during tree and shrub installation or on established plants. The product combines Merit insecticide with a fertilizer in convenient, easy-to-use tablets.

When plants are under stress, photosynthesis, water use and respiration become inefficient. CoreTect systemically triggers enzymatic pathways that produce antioxidants, resulting in better stress defense and more efficient use of nutrients and water.

CoreTect’s controlled-release formulation provides long residual control of insect pests such as adelgids, whiteflies, borers and leaf-feeding beetles.

Son of a Beast

Bandit’s new compact grinder, the 1680 Sharptooth Beast Recycler, is easy to maneuver and tow. Featuring a 52-by-24-inch infeed opening, the unit weighs in under 20,000 pounds and rides on two 10,000-pound Torflex axles for easy transport. The 1680 also features 26 cutter bodies with teeth, engine options up to 275 hp and an optional 36-inch, hydraulic, folding infeed pan.

Loaders Galore

Caterpillar has introduced the B2 Series of six skid steer loaders and two multi-terrain loaders, featuring ergonomic operator stations and high-performance power trains. The new skid steer loaders range in rated operating capacity from 1,400 to 2,500 pounds, while the multi-terrain loaders have capacities of 2,050 and 2,500 pounds.

Four cab option packages allow selection from a basic cab to one with suspension seat, cab debris barrier, cup holder, heater/air conditioner, cab door and side windows. Three control option packages run from a basic design to one with high-flow joystick options.

The radial lift design on four of the machines delivers excellent digging performance. The other four have a vertical lift design, which provides extended reach and lift height for quick and easy truck loading. A single-level suspension undercarriage provides low ground pressure, stability, high traction and fast travel.

Trench It!

The Zahn R150 trencher from Ditch Witch is 36 inches wide and features a 15 hp, gas-powered Honda engine, electronic throttle and auto choke (on electric-start models).

Different tires are available depending on applications or job site conditions, including 18-inch, air-filled tires and 18-inch, urethane-filled, flat-proof tires to provide additional stability when trenching. The R150 has one ground drive speed of 3.3 mph, optimized for trenching.

Reach for the Sky!

The lightweight Easy-Lift Harness from TAS Industries is designed for use with extended hedge trimmers, pole pruners, extended power pole pruners, line trimmers and stick edgers. The harness helps to reduce stress and fatigue and increase productivity. The Easy-Lift can lift up to 100 percent of an implement’s weight.

The ergonomic design encourages the user to have proper posture while providing a full range of motion for the implement in use. It is adjustable for the height of the operator, can be folded for easy transportation and storage, and can be adjusted for use with different implements.

Lightning Line

SherrillTree’s new .5-inch Lightning climbing line features SmartCore technology and is 20 percent lighter than comparable .5-inch lines. Benefits include less weight to lift with each footlock, and less mass to pack to and around the work site, and it is also easier to pull up into the canopy and move through it quickly, all with an easily gripped diameter. The Lightning is a 16-strand construction rope, so it can be ordered with an eye splice. In addition, it is available in three different colors, allowing individual climbers on a crew to keep track of their own line or distinguish between ropes when tied in to multiple points. The Lightning is compatible with most handled and foot ascenders.
