General Description of Requirement
The City requires one (1) brush chipper trailer plus the option to purchase additional units during the term of the agreement that will better support tree-trimming operations around the City as more trees are planted. Size, adjustability of feed, and ease-of-repair will be key considerations for the selection of this equipment. The proposed unit will be towed almost entirely within the City of Vancouver and will see grades of 6-8% and must be capable of reaching speeds of at least 60 km/hr.
