Vegetation management: Loftness Specialized Equipment’s Kwik-Trim compact mechanical tree trimmer is for right of way maintenance work. Featuring an upgraded chassis and powertrain, the unit offers more horsepower, increased stability and easier maintenance than the previous model.
Equipped with a turbocharged 47.6-horsepower diesel engine, the Kwik-Trim meets tier 4 compliance without requiring diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). In addition to producing more power, the updated engine provides better fuel efficiency.
Compared with the previous Kwik-Trim model, the unit is some 800 lbs. heavier with an operating footprint that is 7 in. wider and 7 in. longer, helping maximize stability on difficult terrain. Despite the increases in size and weight, the unit is still compact enough to access tight jobsites and light enough to be towed behind a pickup.
