Morbark, LLC, debuted the Beever M18R Track tree and brush chipper, as well as improvements to its tree care products lines, at the TCI Expo at the Baltimore Convention Center.
“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 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 1.0 mph and 1.8 mph, to its popular M18R chipper.
Morbark is committed to continuous improvement of its equipment. 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.
The Boxer line of compact utility loaders will now be Morbark orange. An updated logo, decals and paint color will provide greater synergies between the models in the complete family of Morbark equipment. Boxer mini-skid steers also will feature new joystick controls for smoother operation and improved operator experience. The Boxer operator will be able to drive the unit with one hand and access all functionality without releasing the joystick controls.
