New Product Roundup: May 2017



Forestry Cutter Attachment

Bobcat’s new 70-inch forestry cutter attachment features up to 17 percent more mulching production, allowing for more work to be done in less time, according to the company. The 70-inch forestry cutter is approved for use with M2-series compact track loaders — T750, T770 and T870 — and the S850 skid loader. An additional 400-pound counterweight is required when using the 70-inch model with T750 and T770 compact track loaders. Approved skid-steer and compact track loaders require high-flow auxiliary hydraulics to operate the attachment. Similar to Bobcat’s 50- and 60-inch models, the 70-inch forestry cutter attachment can efficiently turn trees and underbrush to mulch, the company says. When the attachment is tilted forward, the material is thrown against the counter combs that reduce the wood to fine mulch and provide wear protection for the rear of the housing. An optional front gate can be lowered if the operator needs finer mulch.

Chain Saw

STIHL’s MSA 200 C-BQ is a lithium-ion, battery-powered chain saw that produces zero exhaust emissions and is quieter than its gasoline-powered counterparts, making it an ideal choice for areas with emission or noise restrictions. Powered by an interchangeable 36-volt STIHL lithium-ion battery, this chain saw starts instantly with the pull of the multi-speed trigger. The battery displays the charge level, so users can easily see how much power is available before beginning a cutting job. Low vibration keeps users from tiring quickly during extended use. The Quick Chain Adjuster feature enables the user to tension the chain without using any separate tools. The STIHL Quickstop Plus chain braking system stops the rotating chain in less than one second (when the rear handle is released).

Land Clearing Attachment

John Deere recently released its Root Rakes (RR72, RR78 and RR84), the latest additions to the company’s expanding lineup of Worksite Pro attachments. Optimized to work with John Deere G- and E-Series skid steers and compact track loaders and K-Series compact wheel loaders, these attachments can be a more economical option over dozer blades, the company says. The root rakes are designed for land clearing, ground leveling and moving materials away from buildings and obstructions. According to the company, these attachments are designed to easily gather rocks and debris, while allowing soil to sift through for minimal site and landscape disturbance and maximum efficiency. Built with alloy-steel construction, replaceable pin-on teeth and zinc-plated, pivot pins with protected Zerks, these attachments can resist impact that any ground materials provide. The root rakes are available in 72-inch (RR72), 78-inch (RR78) and 84-inch (RR84) width.
