Boxer to Launch Largest, Most Advanced Mini-Skid Steer
Morbark® and Boxer® will display some of their newest and most popular product offerings in their booth (#3257) at The Rental Show, produced by the American Rental Association, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from February 21-24, 2016.
Boxer will introduce its largest and most advanced compact utility loader, the 950HD, and display the X7 Chipper, 120 Dedicated Trencher, 322D and 525DX mini-skid steers, and popular attachments; while Morbark will display a gasoline-powered M12RX brush chipper and its newest stump grinder, the MXG50 Track.
Boxer 950HD Compact Utility Loader
Designed from the ground up, the 950HD includes many class-leading features previously found only on full-size skid-steer models. The 950HD features the industry’s highest hinge pin height, allowing it to easily dump over a 6′ (1.8-meter) side wall; class-leading 48-HP (36 kW) Tier 4 Final diesel engine with Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) that does not require after treatment; advanced electronic display with onboard diagnostic capabilities; multiple mode settings, allowing the operator to tailor the machine to the application; and two joystick operation patterns. The hydraulics package features a hydrostatic drive with 15-GPM (57 L/min) flow and dual auxiliary remotes with machine pressure relief blocks on each set of auxiliaries. The machine also features a hydrostatic operating system, improved ergonomics and creature comforts such as operator hip and thigh padding, cup holder and 12-volt auxiliary power supply.
Boxer X7 Chipper
Designed primarily for the rental market and small independent contractors, the 7″ (18 cm) capacity Boxer X7 is engineered to be easy to use, easy to tow and easy to maintain. The X7’s “easy 1-2-3 operation” allows an operator—after becoming familiar with the safety features and requirements of the machine—to simply start the engine, engage the throttle to full RPM and engage the feed control bar to chip. The simplified design of this chipper in no way reduces its productivity. The X7 is a powerful, aggressive chipper. It features a larger diameter chipping disc and greater material pulling and clamping force than others on the market to quickly and easily power through material. With limited moving parts, bearings and hoses, as well as other maintenance-friendly features, the X7 chipper makes maintenance simple, for faster turnaround times and greater productivity. The X7’s compact and lightweight design makes towing a breeze, while the machine’s wide stance promotes visibility on the road. In addition to the four-position control bar and dual safety pull cables, the X7 is compatible with Morbark’s award-winning ChipSafe® Operator Safety Shield.
Boxer® 120 Trencher
The Boxer 120 Trencher features a 20.5-HP (15.3 kW) air-cooled gasoline engine and class-leading 740 ft-lb (1,003 N·m) of trenching torque – allowing the operator to trench through the most demanding applications. The 120 Trencher is a ride-on unit featuring improved ergonomics, greater trencher visibility and hands-only operation – eliminating foot controls and linkage. The trencher is available in 24″ (61 cm) or 36″ (91 cm) lengths with 6″ (15 cm) wide chain and features a gear reduction planetary drive, spring-loaded boom and standard crumber assembly.
Boxer 322D Compact Utility Loader
The 300 Series is Boxer’s smallest entry into the mini-skid market. The small but powerful Boxer 322D can handle “big machine” tasks while providing ease of access as a result of the smaller footprint. Because of its small size and ease of operation, the 322D is ideal for the rental and hire industry. The tandem pump hydraulic operating system develops up to 12.4 GPM (47 l/min) of hydraulic flow to run the machine’s auxiliary and propulsion systems, providing enough power to handle full-size attachments like a 30″ (76 cm) auger or 36″ (91 cm) trencher. The 322D has a tip capacity of 1,325 lbs. (600 kg) and an operating capacity of 464 lbs. (210 kg) at 35% tip load. These compact machines provide the strength to perform a variety of tasks, and, at 34.5″ (88 cm) wide, the 322D diesel (and 320 gasoline model) have no problems getting into and out of tight areas.
Boxer 525DX Compact Utility Loader
The Boxer 525DX Compact Utility Loader is Boxer’s solution to meet federal government Tier 4 Final EPA emission regulations for diesel engines — replacing the Boxer 532DX. The 525DX features a redesigned hydraulic package, providing smoother drive controls and improved simultaneous functionality. Additionally, the Boxer 525DX features improved protection of the radiator and hydraulic oil cooler components — a push-button machine pressure relief valve to easily couple hydraulic-powered attachments to the high-flow auxiliary remote couplers and increased track adjustment length to extend usable track life.
Morbark MXG50 Track Stump Grinder
An ideal unit for landscapers, stump grinding contractors and rental stores, the all-new Morbark MXG50 Track Stump Grinder is equipped with a 35-horsepower gasoline engine. Its compact size and power — combined with a 50″ boom arc swing, maximum cutting height of 21 ½” and maximum cutting depth of 16″ — allow customers the ability to expand their business or generate new business. The MXG50 Track Stump Grinder features Long Boom Technology, which maintains the full cutting arc regardless of depth. The MXG50’s features include a tip-out operator’s station with 4-up fingertip controls, convenient electric clutch engagement, and turf-friendly 7″ tracks, as well as a standard remote control system.
Morbark Beever™ M12RX Brush Chipper
A great entry-level machine, the M12RX is lighter and more economical than the M12R, while remaining just as robust, rugged and reliable. Powerful, compact and easily transportable, this unit is perfectly suited to utility line clearing, residential tree services, rental yards and municipalities. Key features include an aggressive single top feed wheel to easily climb over material and increase chipping efficiency and engine options that address customers’ emissions regulations concerns. The M12RX is available with an 89-HP gasoline GM engine or a 74-HP Tier 4 Final Perkins engine.
