Altec Announces Launch of the DRM12he Engineless Chipper

Altec announced the launch of the DRM12he engineless chipper. This 12 inch controlled-feed drum style chipper is operated with hydraulic power from the tow vehicle creating a Modular Production System (MPS), thus removing the need for a traditional engine. The absence of the engine eliminates routine repair and maintenance expenses associated with combustion style engines and offers a more efficient uptime. The MPS provides hydraulic and electrical connections from the chipper to the tow vehicle by utilizing a quick connect system that makes hooking and unhooking fast and easy. The DRM12he also provides the following features: push button start/stop; a cutting drum that stops in less than 10 seconds after power is stopped; on board diagnostics for hydraulic system oil level, temperature and filtration; and weight savings of over 1,100 pounds for a normal 12 inch drum chipper. The DRM12he is equipped with the Altec Panic Bar System and other popular features.

Altec Releases TDA58, an Insulating (Category C) Tracked Aerial Device

Altec announced the release of the TDA58, an insulating (category C) tracked aerial device, ruggedly designed and major component protected for use in the tree care, utility and construction industries. This telescopic double articulating aerial device provides 63 feet of working height and, with its slim design, can fit through a 36 inch gate. The TDA58's compact, yet rugged design makes it the ideal product for work in harsh tree care conditions, as well as residential applications. With a 36-foot side reach, the unit can operate front to back on a 20 degree slope. The quick set up time of this product gives operators the ability to begin work quickly and without interruption. Design features include: Load sense hydraulic system with pilot operated upper controls; Multiplex electric over hydraulic carrier and lower controls; Two speed proportional track; Three function ISO-Grip controller in the platform with two additional individual levers; and Hydraulically extending radial outriggers.
