Custom Lowbeds a Specialty of Aspen Trailers 
With a 50- to 60-ton capacity, the BC7 tridem lowbeds from Aspen Custom Trailers Inc are typical of the company's 500 or so trailers working in the forests of British Columbia. The lowbeds are well designed, tough and at work in the harshest conditions, the company says. Fabricated out of high yield steel, the trailers are designed with the lightest tare weights to achieve the heaviest payloads and can be manufactured in 50- to 250-ton payload ratings, for on or off road.

Morbark Offers Two New Tracked Grinders 
Morbark has expanded its horizontal grinder line-up with the 3600 and 5600 track wood hogs. The tracked models are designed to move and grind simultaneously, allowing for more production per hour. Rather than moving piles of material to the grinder, the grinder can move to the debris and process it on the spot. With horsepower options ranging from 430 to 500 hp for the 3600 and from 750 to 860 hp for the 5600, the machines handle very demanding grinding applications, making quick work of green waste, pallets, stumps and other hard-to-get-to wood waste, the company says. The Model 3600 features a 25 1/2" diameter by 49" long hammermill rotor equipped with double-edged replaceable cutting inserts. The Model 5600 offers a 36" by 56" hammermill, a 330EL Cat undercarriage and wireless radio remote control. Reader Service Card # 466
