Altec chippers join rental market

Altec Industries, Inc. continues to expand its tree care product line with the recent introduction of the DC610 chipper.

The Altec DC610 caters to the rental market, with a user-friendly design that can be easily towed behind a smaller vehicle and requires little maintenance.

“As with all Altec products, safety remains at the forefront of our business,” says Andy Price, tree care market manager for Altec. “The DC610 follows safety procedures and presents fresh opportunities to a new market segment.”

A robust design comprised of a strong tubular frame and heavy-duty steel fenders provides support for all parts of the chipper. State-of-the-art safety features make the DC610 ideal for operators looking to tackle tough projects. The 6- x 10-inch controlled-feed chipper incorporates electronic controls with diagnostics capabilities -- the patented Altec “Panic Bar” system -- which provides operators a dedicated stop mechanism for the feed system independent of the feed control bar.

Other innovative features include:

  • The FeedSense control system prevents stalling.
  • 13-inch tires accommodate steady towing, and are soft on turf.
  • Ground stability, easy storage and transport.
  • “Hedgehog” feed roller with an aggressive grip and secure feeding system gets the job done easily.
  • Durable, powder-coat paint increases the chipper’s lifespan.
  • Powered by Honda gas engine.
