Kwik-Trim Mechanical Tree Trimmer
Loftness Specialized Equipment has released a new version of its Kwik-Trim compact mechanical tree trimmer for right-of-way maintenance work. Featuring an upgraded chassis and powertrain, the new unit offers more horsepower, increased stability and easier maintenance than the previous model.
Equipped with a turbocharged 47.6-horsepower diesel engine, the Kwik-Trim meets Tier 4 compliance without requiring diesel exhaust fluid. In addition to producing more power, the updated engine provides superior fuel efficiency.
Compared with the previous Kwik-Trim model, the new unit is approximately 800 pounds heavier with an operating footprint that is 7 inches wider and 7 inches longer, helping to maximize stability on difficult terrain. Despite the increases in size and weight, the unit is still compact enough to access tight job sites and light enough to be towed behind a pickup. A new hose reel mount eliminates the need for external boom support during road transport. www.loftness.com
