FAE and PrimeTech at Demo International in BC, Canada
From September 22nd to 24th, 2016, one of the biggest shows for forestry equipment,
Demo International, was held just outside Greater Vancouver in the beautiful scenery of the Maple Ridge rainforest.
On a more than 3 kilometer long loop road more than 100 exhibitors showed off the very latest technology in forestry equipment and services.
PrimeTech Shredding Equipment out of Spruce Grove, AB, the Canadian distribution, parts and support center for PrimeTech and FAE, introduced the following new models:
- PrimeTech PT-475, the self-propelled tracked carrier powered by a CAT C13 engine producing 475 HP. This new model is equipped with oversized, coarse-fin radiators preventing them from getting plugged up and making cleaning easy. The variable-pitch reversible fans help reduce the power absorbed by the fan which eventually results in a lower fuel consumption. The mulching head of the PT-475 features a new rock resistant drum. The PT-475 is second to none for productivity, ground pressure and serviceability!
- PrimeTech PT-175, the completely redesigned smallest carrier of the PrimeTech line. Stunning new improvements make this 160 HP forestry mulcher more service friendly and accessible, lighter and more reliable. With its 175 cm / 69” overall width, it is the ideal mulcher to cut seismic lines and for vegetation management.
- FAE SFM-250, the forestry mulcher, subsoiler and rock crusher for tractors between 180 and 300 HP. It can mulch trees with a diameter of up to 40 cm / 16”, crush rocks with a diameter of up to 30 cm / 12” and subsoil with a max working depth of 30 cm / 12”. This is a multi-purpose attachment, ideal for land conversion and land preparation for farming.
- UML/S/EX, the Forestry mulcher for excavators between 20 and 25 t, the newest addition to the FAE range of excavator mounted attachments. The head is equipped with a fixed teeth rotor and a hydraulic motor with automatic variable torque (VT). This is the ideal head for land clearing jobs where a long reach is needed.
In addition, PrimeTech Shredding exhibited a wide range of mulching heads for excavators from 1.5 to 30 t (with swinging hammers and with fixed teeth rotor) and for skid steer loaders (low flow and high flow).
We would like to thank all customers who stopped by at our booth and helped make this event a success.
