Leading Youth Organization Growing True Leaders

Bekaert Corporation proudly announces their continued support of National 4-H Council (4-H) as a partner into 2017. Bekaert will continue its support in helping America’s largest positive youth-development organization
to provide life-changing experiences and a better future for young people.Bekaert and 4-H believe in the power of America’s youth to succeed in life; however, too many kids lack opportunities that prepare them with the skills to lead in their lives,
community and careers. 4-H empowers young people through hands-on experiences — where they can learn by doing, grow from failure, express their ideas, and have an opportunity to learn and to lead. 4-H youth are empowered to be true leaders
— young people who have real confidence; know how to work well with others; can endure through challenges; and will stick to a job until it gets done.In April, 4-H is launching its Grow True Leaders campaign to empower youth with the opportunity to share their voice and show how they are making a difference in their communities.The campaign will launch nationwide and will runto action — Shout, Share and Support — to rally the nation
in growing a generation of more true leaders prepared to lead in life, community and career.4-H, the nation’s largest youth development organization,grows confident young people who are empowered
for life today and prepared for a career tomorrow. 4-H programs empower nearly six million young people across the U.S. through experiences that develop critical life skills.4-H is the youth development program of our nation’s
Cooperative Extension System and USDA, and serves every county and parish in the U.S. through a network of 110 public universities and more than 3000 local Extension offices. Globally, 4-H collaborates with independent
programs to empower one million youth in 50 countries. The research-backed 4-H experience grows young people who are four times more likely to contribute to their communities; two times more
likely to make healthier choices; two times more likely to be civically active; and two times more likely to participate in STEM programs.

New Marshall Tree Saw

Marshall Tree Saw introduces its new 6-inch diameter cylinders to provide more ground clearance than before. These new smaller cylinders offer owners in areas with rocky soil conditions better clearance than ever. No cylinders dragging on the ground or into the rocks thus, eliminating chances of damage. These new, cylinders provide the same cutting power you expect of the Marshall Tree Saw when you are cutting trees, stumps or brush. With over 70,000 lbs of cutting force @ 3000 psi, nothing on the market provides that kind of power at the Marshall’s affordable price. Additionally the new Brush Guard accessory protects the cylinders and hoses while cutting or pushing, piling and stacking cut trees and brush with the Marshall Tree Saw. Just one feature of this amazing machine that eliminates the need for additional tools in cleaning up your downed trees that sets the MTS apart from others. An experienced operator can expect to clear hundreds of trees an hour depending on trunk size and operating terrain using the Marshall Tree Saw. Best of all, with its ability to cut at or below ground level, the saw leaves no stumps to grind and, equipped with an optional integrated or add-on sprayer system for applying herbicide, re-growth can be prevented. The Marshall Tree Saw operates 50-60% more efficiently in skid fuel consumption than any spinning blade saw in the field as it requires no PTO (Power Take Off) to run. Now that is an additional advantage to owning the MTS, plus its excellent resale value. The Marshall Tree Saw is designed to function as an attachment to any commercially available skid steer. With an operation capacity of 2000-2500 pounds, it does not require high-flow hydraulics. The slow-rotating (non-spinning) blade is made of 3/8’s inch, high carbon, abrasion-resistant AR-400 steel that is unaffected by dirt, sand and rock when cutting, unlike high-speed spinning-blade saws with expensive replaceable carbide-tipped teeth. Down time is nonexistent, or replacing teeth with the MTS, you just keep cutting in both directions; while not throwing any trash in the air or creating sparks. Maintenance is simple and easy in the field; the MTS is built for durable, dependable service over the long haul and engineered for toughness under continuous use.
