Morbark LLC showed off its new Beever M18R Track Tree and Brush Chipper last week at the TCI Expo in Baltimore.
“We first saw the need for a tracked version of our 18-inch capacity chipper for fire and pest cleanup efforts going on in the Western United States,” said Casey Gross, Morbark’s director of tree care products. “The M18R Track gives customers the higher horsepower they need while remaining compact to maintain maneuverability through a variety of conditions.”
The Beever M18R Track adds 400mm rubber tracks, with 4.84 PSI ground pressure and low-speed and high-speed travel ranges of 1 mph and 1.8 mph to its existing M18R chipper.
Morbark says the new track model demonstrates the company’s commitment to continuous improvement. “Such enhancements can be seen in the standardization of the product line, with increased use of robotic welding processes, and more gasoline engine options, as well as Tier 4 diesel engines,” a Morbark spokesman said.
