Multi-Purpose Machine
Grande Prairie, Alta-based Risley Equipment Inc. has introduced its new E-Clips EX300 multi-purpose brush cutter, mulcher and stump grinder.


Designed from the ground up to be the next generation of multi-purpose track machine, the E-clips offers high speed mobility with integrated “DTS” suspension and a revolutionary full
motion “Flex-Trac” pad, which the company says “eclipses” traditional rail based track undercarriages.


Performance, Serviceability and Versatility sets the E-clips apart from all other machines with its ability to transform
effective hydraulic horsepower to Risley’s own line of “CutLine™” Cutter, Mulcher and Grinder attachments.

New Logset Options
Finnish equipment manufacturer Logset is offering new options for some of its equipment.

Western Star Restructures
Western Star Trucks has been given the green light to carve its own path.


While Western Star remains part of the Daimler family, the truck maker will operate as a separate entity and make its own budgeting and marketing decisions. The changes are organizational in nature, but company officials said during recent dealer meetings that the structural changes are good news for Western Star customers.


Western Star confirmed it will be building trucks with 2010 Detroit Diesel engines at the beginning of the year and will later offer Cummins power as well.
