Terex introduces “green” chipper body

Terex Utilities is introducing a chipper body for the tree care industry made of recycled fiberglass. The body, developed in collaboration with Astoria Industries, provides an alternative to heavier steel bodies to save weight and reduce fuel consumption. This recycled fiberglass body is state-of-the-art with regard to its look, strength-to-weight ratio, and load handling. By using a chipper body that weighs 1,400 pounds less than a comparable steel body, users will be able to mount the unit on a non-CDL chassis (25,999-pound GVWR) and carry the same volume of chips as a standard 33,000-pound GVWR chassis. The recycled fiberglass body carries a limited 5 year warranty. For more information, visit www.terex.com
