What's New!

The Cutting EDGE

CEAttachments has redesigned its EDGE Sod Unroller attachment for skid steers and track loaders.

The EDGE Sod Unroller attachment has an enhanced design that provides for more efficient operation and performance.

It features an improved bracket design, providing easier roll installation and strong tubular frames that handle rolls of sod up to 48 inches wide and up to 60 inches in diameter.

This simple, economical design requires no hydraulics and uses fiber or plastic cored rolls of sod.

MINI Spreader, Big Benefits

ACE Torwel, Inc.'s Economizer MINI pickup truck and utility vehicle spreaders come in 1/3-cubic-yard models, which are ideal for small narrow spaces, like sidewalks. The units spread sand, salt, seed, lime fertilizer and other coarse materials.

Made in the USA, the MINI V-box spreaders feature a quiet, durable 5.5 hp Honda gas engine with built-in overload protection. Operators can easily control the flow of material with an in-the-cab control panel that features on/off motor switch and on/off conveyor switch, and a 35-foot cable for installation is included. A sealed rubber delivery system with belt over pintle chain supports continuous smooth flow of all materials, and all-aluminum material deflectors with adjustable spreading width from 4 to 24 feet cover small and large areas.

Upgrades include chute extension for pickup truck models, and steel woven top screen.

A Chip Off the Ol' Block

Morbark, Inc., has added the M15R brush chipper to its Beever product line.

With its high-capacity and lightweight design, this compact chipper is ideal for residential tree services, utility line clearing, vegetation management, maintenance contractors and municipalities.

The unit features a 15-inh capacity, a patented chambered air impeller system to increase chip throwing velocity and reduce dust and material blowback out the infeed to pack more into the chip truck, and a powerful TorqMax top feed wheel compression system, which generates more than 3,400 pound-foot of material pulling force.
