The 50 5 SQUIRREL is the ideal machine for street tree pruning because of its robust construction and many features.
This model is primarily designed for street tree pruning in town areas because of its compact size and very heavy robust construction suiting contractors.
Planetary Drive Wheel Hubs
We have our own design very heavy duty 8:1 planetary reduction gearbox with an integrated powerful hydraulic motor and incorporate fail safe multi-disc wet brakes which eliminate creep and auto brakes smoothly when driving down a hill. Hubs are standard with quick disengage freewheeling. This is the most powerful efficient drive giving maximum torque to the drive wheels.torque at low speed with 200 bar seals.
Fully enclosed engine compartment
he bonnets are made from heavy steel and will not break with fallen or overhanging branches. For security, the bonnets are lockable and swing up with a gas strut to give easy access for servicing.
A Vanguard v-twin cylinder 16hp petrol engine is standard or 23hp EFI petrol engine is optional extra or optional extra Kubota 3 cylinder water cooled 23hp diesel is available. The exhaust is extended and piped low down to the rear of the Squirrel away from workers. Engine auto stops when oil pressure is low.
23hp EFI petrol engine is optional extra is recommended for street tree work. This engine is fuel efficient with more power for faster operating.
E-Stop and Start switch, reset circuit breaker are accessible without lifting the bonnet.
A sealed enclosure protects all the electrical components.
Powerful Tripple Pump Hydraulic System
Hydraulics have the capacity to handle steep and adverse conditions. The system is protected by a very large fine 10 micron suction filter. Each motor hose has a relief valve fitted to eliminate pressure spikes. Three hydraulics pumps are fitted, 1 pump for boom lift & side swing, 2 pumps for drive wheels. This 3 pump system keep the pressures low.
Soft Drive. Special valving is fitted that gives a soft start and stop, this allows the operator to drive safely.
The engine base is supported on springs to eliminate vibration.
Hydraulic Three Speed
Three speed is a standard feature which operates independently from the variable engine rpm, enabling the operator to select a wide range of speeds for faster operation and traveling.
Dual caster wheels
Two independent caster wheels with an additional horizontal pivot provide a very smooth ride over uneven terrain or street kerbs. As one wheel mounts a kerb the other stays at the original level. Effectively the height of the kerb is halved. This allows the operator to comfortably work safely and quickly. These wheels also greatly reduce the possibility of bogging because of their independent rolling action.
Genuine Foot Controls
The SQUIRREL is a machine with unique foot controls, giving three dimensional movement without the operator shifting his feet. A wide seat belt holds the operator directly above the foot pedals giving a safe and comfortable working position. The fully adjustable spring centered foot pedals allow you to continue working with both hands free AT ALL TIMES. This proven feature alone makes the SQUIRREL the most efficient machine.
