New Products

Ultralight Temporary Surface
UL-100 is a highly flexible, tough and temporary mat system. The surface has been used for years by our military, but is also of equal value to the timber industry. The mats aid loggers with access, load balancing and
ground protection. They provide forward operations and protect helicopters from foreign objects.
The mats can withstand severe punishment. They can be stacked flat, folded or rolled. They’re easy to clean, reparable in the field and available in any color or size.

Amerimulch H2NO
Mulch producers can now create color-enhanced mulch products using as little as six gallons of water per year with the Amerimulch H2NO™ Reduced Water Colorant Delivery System. The system features an array of nozzles and hoses, and a high-pressure delivery system that produces a foggy mist to deliver the colorant to the wood fiber. Using this application results in less water usage and faster drying time, less wash-off and lower shipping weights for mulch products.
"They (mulch producers) can reduce their water usage across the board by 25 percent, and by over 50 percent on some wood fibers," says Rick Stoneking, design engineer for Amerimulch. "Plus, it’s available as a retrofit to any of our existing color mills, which will mean that the upgrade isn’t going to cost our existing customer a lot of money."
For more information call 1-888-556-3304.

ECO-Track Model for Soft Ground Applications
A new ECO-SOFT track has been developed by Olofsfors AB, based on the proven ECO-Track model but with a different shaped cross member for soft ground applications. Cross members are 36" wide for improved flotation and shaped to result in less ground disturbance when turning. The result is a smooth-running, ground-friendly track with good traction.
