PrenticeBlount’s Forestry Division is rolling out a shorter-wheelbase model as part of the Prentice site-preparation tractor product line. Joining the 220- and 260-horsepower Prentice 2764 and 2864 multi-purpose tool carriers, the new 2664 models maintain, with 190 horsepower and load-sensing hydraulics, the ability to run mulchers, stump grinders and rotary mowers for a variety of land-clearing operations. The Cummins QSB 6.7L engine is designed to maximize machine performance through a “power bulge” that boosts horsepower when the engine is loaded. A wheelbase of 101.5 inches allows the Prentice 2664 to maneuver easily around obstructions.
