Doran PressurePro
The Doran PressurePro Tire Pressure Monitoring System from Doran Manufacturing, continuously monitors pressure of all vehicle tires, and displays them in a digital readout in the vehicles cab. The pressure of up to 34 tires is shown, allowing the driver to monitor leaks and schedule repairs or replacement without breakdowns, or downtime. Audible and visual alerts notify the driver of low-pressure conditions. Doran PressurePro features duplicate signals that minimize the effects of electronic interference, weather and other trucks. It’s easy to install. Simply replace existing valve caps with Sensors, mount the Monitor on the dash, and hook up the standard two-wire power supply. For more information —

DuraTech’s 2009 Grinder
DuraTech Industries recently introduced the new model 2009 industrial tub grinder. "This machine is in a class by itself," says Al Goehring, marketing manager for DuraTech Industries International Inc. of Jamestown, N.D. "It’s powered by a 275-hp John Deere electronic diesel engine that meets EPA Tier II emission standards. The engine is connected to the heavy-duty mill by a PT-Tech selfadjusting clutch featuring pushbutton start and built-in torque limiter and brake." Another feature is the self-cleaning rotary screen, which keeps fresh, clean air coming in and dirt and debris out, while providing superior protection to the engine and radiator. The machine’s 22’ stacking conveyor allows the operator to load material directly into a truck or onto a pile as high as 16’. An optional tub cover controls flying debris. For more information —

Tigercat’s 726 Series Feller Buncher
The new 726D, Tigercat's highest production drive-to-tree feller buncher, is totally redesigned with three separate compartments for the cooling system, engine and hydraulic components. The 726D is best suited to final felling in oversized wood, natural stands and rugged terrain applications. It will also be configured as a mulcher carrier (to be designated as the M726D) to complement the larger Tigercat M760 mulcher. The wheelbase has been stretched 9" for improved stability and a tighter turn radius when the machine is equipped with larger tire sizes. Overall length has been increased by 17”, compared with its predecessor. The added length increases stability and affords space for additional fuel capacity and a separate compartment for the batteries. For more information —

Denis Cimaf’s New Brushcutter-Chipper
Denis Cimaf has introduced the DAF-180, a new frontmounted brushcutter-chipper for skid steers, based on the technology of the DAH series for excavators. Under suitable terrain conditions, the larger skid steers equipped with a DAF-180 can clear standing trees 6-10" in diameter. The front-mounted DAF-180 brushcutter-chipper uses a 73" wide cutting rotor with 27 fixed, bolted-on blades. It is designed for skid steers of 80 HP and up. It requires a continuous hydraulic flow between 30-40 gal./min., an operating pressure of 193 bars and up, and a rotating speed of 2,200-2,600 rpm. The DAF-180 is easy to maintain and sturdy. If a blade should be damaged, replacing it is as simple as unbolting it and bolting on a new one. For more information —  or

Rockland XL25 Tree Saw
The Rockland XL25 Tree Saw is the first felling head designed for a dozer. The XL25 easily handles steep, rough terrain and can get into tight places that larger, more expensive machines just can't go. It can cut trees up to 25" in diameter and features a patented tower that can be tilted independently of the base. This feature eliminates bar pinch and, if desired, allows the operator to cut stumps parallel to the hillside — producing a safer working environment and generating more wood per acre. When used with Rockland's DZ dozer coupler, the XL25 gives dozer operators the ability to cut and bunch trees, then quickly change attachments to make roads, grade, skid, or clear land.
