Miller Spreader

The MC350 Landscape Curbilder from Miller Spreader is designed to place decorative landscape curbing and smaller commercial curbing. A 6-inch reciprocating plunger pushes the curb mix from the hopper into the curb form. The plunger assembly components are machined to tight and exacting tolerances. Because the hopper is open on the bottom, dips and valleys in the base are filled in so site preparation doesn't need to be as precise as with an auger machine. Curb forms are reversible within the plunger housing so either left or right hand curbing can be placed with the same form. A level indicator, emergency stop switch, hour meter and operator's manual tube are located on the console.

Morbark's models G52SP and D52SP stump grinders have a top speed of 3.2 mph and a cutter wheel and tooth design to grind stumps quickly. The boom design creates a 52-inch cutting arc, and the hexagon-shaped cutter wheel offers less resistance and friction through the stump. The standard operator's control station, with well-spaced hydraulic levers, is located for maximum visibility of the grinding wheel. Optional wireless or wired remote controls free the operator for optimum visibility away from dust and debris. The stationary engine design creates a low center of gravity and stability to minimize rollovers and engine oil starvation. In addition, steering on wet turf, loose gravel and uneven terrain is optimized with hydraulic equalization valves and an articulating front axle.

Bandit Industries

Bandit's line of 6-, 9-, 12-, 14-, 15- and 18-inch diameter capacity hand-fed tree and brush chippers have wide openings and powerful hydraulic feed systems. All Bandit chippers feature 360-degree swivel discharge spouts. The chippers are designed to deliver high quality, dimensional chips while providing higher fuel efficiency to increase profits.

Todd Phillips, general manager of Jefferson Rent-All in Jefferson, N.C., owns the 65XL brush chipper with a Hatz diesel engine. He had a customer come in who said the machine wasn't working, when actually he'd just run out of fuel after running the machine for nine hours. Phillips has had other machines that run out of gas after three or four hours. “It's got plenty of power, and it's easy on fuel,” Phillips says. “Our new one is diesel and it uses half the fuel the other one did.” Phillips also says it's a great machine for both homeowners and contractors, making it a great rental item.

Corona Clipper

Corona Clipper introduces the Quick Connect System, which was created in response to the need for faster wheelbarrow assembly and the absence of bolt heads inside the tray. The WB 2506K and WB 2606K wheelbarrows have a smooth, extra heavy-duty steel tray that is designed to resist rust, dirt collection and leakage by eliminating the bolt holes. There are no bolt heads in the tray to stub a shovel or mixing hoe on. The tray is secured to the frame with an innovative bracket welded to the underside. The bolt head slides into the bracket and securely connects the undercarriage. Custom-fit wedges assembled above the handle are made to drop between the tray brackets, reducing gaps and adding support to the tray.
