Expander’s 10-year warranty
A 10-year warranty is now offered for
Expander System pivot preservation
products in North America.
Pivot wear is a common problem and
Expander System offers a quick, permanent
solution to worn pivots. The system
is fitted directly into the worn pivot and
repairs to the lugs are unnecessary. Then,
fasteners are tightened, and tension
works the press slotted sleeves down over
the tapered ends of the pin axle. The
sleeves expand parallel to the pin axle
and lock the system in the pivot lugs.
Wear is permanently eliminated.
Under the new warranty, in the
unlikely event that a warranty defect is
confirmed, Expander will provide the
part, or a new Expander System, and
Expander assumes the cost of the
replacement part or product. The customer
will be responsible for the labour
cost and other associated expenses.

Logging Conference in February.
The Titan 22 features a highly
advanced measuring system with stopon-the-mark technology, real-time length
much more. The design allows
for easy harvesting
at the stump or
processing from a
log deck, with an
measuring circuit that provides unprecedented
accuracy and maximum log utilization. In addition, a quick-change feature
allows for a rapid switch to grapples.
