New Product Launch from Lamtrac
Lamtrac has been manufacturing equipment under its own, and many other well-known brand names in the commercial land clearing market for over 20 years. This has made the company an authority on the development of prime movers designed for the rigorous demands of fulltime operation of front-mounted mulching head attachments.
Witnessing an exponential growth of vegetation management contractors using underfeatured, compact track loaders (CTL) commonly used in construction as prime movers for their businesses, the company from Tracadie-Sheila in New Brunswick added a new model to their line in 2018. The LTR 6140T was released as a CTL style attachment carrier, but featuring safety and production features that dwarfed the other machines in the category.
In continuing the growth and performance of their current product offerings, Lamtrac announced the launch of the new LTR 6170T version of the machine in August 2020. It retains the popular single boom design with side-entry cab, closed loop hydraulic system with dedicated attachment pump (44 GPM @ 6,000 PSI), and easy access to all machine components.
In addition, this next generation Lamtrac features a Tier 3 Cummins QSB 4.5L generating 165 hp, high torque gearboxes, and superior-duty cooling capacity capable of withstanding temps of over 50°C ambient temperature in full-duty cycle.
Other new standard features include a rear bumper assembly housing a 6,800 kg winch, air ride seat with fully-adjustable joysticks and armrests, along with a new generation digital color information screen.
“The true value added to the Lamtrac LTR 6140T/6170T series lies in their true versatility,” stated Phil Allain, director of sales and marketing at Lamtrac. “Many potential users realize the revenue opportunities coming from the growing commercial land clearing sector, but when you combine that with the ability to use the most common CTL attachments such as buckets, snowblowers, or street sweepers – in a compact package that can easily be transported with a pickup truck – it quickly becomes an easy decision of a strategic investment in their businesses and careers.”
