Unlike other machines, the LightfootTM does not throw material when masticating brush, thereby making it safe to use around homes and people.
IRM’s LighfootTM is ideally suited to working on all sorts of restoration forestry projects, as well as fuels reduction projects within the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI).
-Low ground pressure (<3lbs/in2) minimizes soil compaction.
-Rubber tracks help minimize soil displacement.
-High horsepower (102) and auxiliary hydraulic capacity (40gpm/3000psi) means the LLightfootTM is highly effective.
-Low operating weight (11,000 lbs) allows for high mobility and virtually no move-in cost.
-Multiple implements allow for effective treatment of many different types of vegetation, from ssmall shrubs to large trees.
