The New Holland W80B Wheel Loader and FINN BB302 Combination

The New Holland W80B compact wheel loader is an excellent companion for the Finn BB302 bark blower.

  • You sit high and have the best site-line for precise load placement into the hopper
  • Plentiful lift clearance
  • Maximum volume – 1.44 cubic yard bucket and BB302 1.5 cubic yard hopper
  • Doesn’t mark up pavement
  • Gentle on turf
Come winter, use the W80B wheel loader to lift and stack snow in high accumulation situations, leveraging its great visibility. See the wheel loader in action:

Martin Implement and FINN Corporation BB5 Bark Blower Demo Footage

Martin Implement hosted FINN Corporation’s erosion control expert, John Tucker, this week for demos of the FINN BB5 bark blower. John showed the finer points of the machine and demoed erosion control techniques. We were glad to have him around! Thanks to everyone else that participated. Here’s some footage:

The BB 5-Series is an ideal tool for mid-size mulching projects where hand labor just won’t cut it. Mulch was applied on this Arlington Heights playground using the BB 5-Series bark blower. Mulch, bark, soil blends and compost can be applied on virtually any terrain, even in wet conditions, and the BB 5-Series can be especially profitable when accessing hard-to-reach areas.

We hope you were able to get up close to see the blower in action and to see in person how much more productive a bark blower can make you on projects. If you have any questions on FINN products, contact us at any one of our three locations. We rent and sell FINN equipment.
