The new 14-hp Shredding TruckLoader from Little Wonder is a commercial debris loader that is manageable for a one-man operation and light-capacity trucks. The unit is constructed with durable composite and polyethylene materials that are 50-percent lighter than steel. The lightweight polyethylene discharge chute is molded to cradle a special rubber compound liner while the rugged 12-gauge steel housing is lined with a hard-wearing, noise-absorbing conveyor belt material. The intake hose is made of translucent flexible urethane that is abrasion and tear resistant with a smooth interior for unrestricted material flow and features a new tubular steel wide-grip handle for operator comfort.

Other standard features include the patented SmartFeed system, a clutchless PTO system and the Bottom Feed Stop Bar.

The Morbark Beever M12R brush chipper features design and productivity improvements. Key modifications to the Beever M12R include a reduced overall size, widened infeed, separated fuel and hydraulic tanks and the incorporation of a chambered air impeller. Shortening the machine length by 15 inches makes it easier to park and maneuver. The increased infeed width results in a 25-percent greater infeed perimeter opening making the feeding of branchy material less difficult. Separate fuel and hydraulic tanks eliminate the chance of cross contamination between fuel and hydraulic oil; and a separate fan chamber increases air flow with less “blow back” at the operator.

A dual-feed wheel system is optional for operators who require extra muscle.

The Model 3090 Track is a self-propelled version of the popular Model 3090 drum-style whole-tree chipper. To make the 3090 a mobile chipper, Bandit Industries utilizes a Caterpillar 325EL undercarriage outfitted with either 700- or 800-millimeter-wide pads. Fully optioned with a cab and loader, the footprint for the Model 3090 Track is just over 11 pounds per square inch. It uses a 37-inch-diameter drum with a 30- by 36-inch opening, and features a four-wheel, diagonal feed system consisting of two, 36-inch top-feed wheels set on an angle. Power options include Caterpillar, Cummins or John Deere diesel engines, ranging from 535 to 630 hp. The 3090 Track can accept material up to 24 inches in diameter, and combined with a stationary high-flow discharge system, it can produce as much as 80 tons of chips per hour.
