Turn Slab Wood Into Profits

The new slab chipper from Salsco, Inc., takes slab wood (bark and all) and converts it to a chip that can not only be used in burners, but can take the place of pellets, as well. The chips can also be used for bedding, either alone or mixed with shavings. The slab chipper is powered by a 40 hp Subaru gas engine.

Rope for Rigging

When you are removing trunk sections, your rigging system needs to be able to absorb large dynamic forces. That was the design mission behind the Atlas Rigging line. The 9/16-inch polyester sheath, nylon core construction offers a soft hand and easy knotability even on the burliest rigging jobs, and it is designed to work seamlessly with a Port-a-wrap, capstan winch or rigging blocks. Minimum break strength (MBS): 9,577 pounds or 42.6kN; average break strength (ABS): 10,381 pounds or 46.2kN.
