Classic Arbortec Range Re-Booted!
Mar 06, 2014 - 10:52 AM - by Treehog_safety

We're excited to introduce some old favourites that have been brought up to date - the Aquafell and Hydrofell chainsaw boots.

Featuring the high safety levels you've come to expect from Arbortec, the new designs are fully Class 2 chainsaw protection compliant, an increase over the old models - but with technological advances we've been able to reduce the number of protective layers. Both boots have a re-modelled sole for increased durability.

They also have improved waterproofing with the new 'Breathedry'® hydrophilic membrane and high airflow super comfort footbeds, so your feet will be warm and dry as well as safe!

The boots are available now from all Arbortec dealers - visit our dealer locator to find your nearest.

The innovation they’ve brought to the industry will see new markets opening up for us.”
Keith Hutchinson, General Manager of Orange Plant agreed, “We spent a year evaluating their product range. What attracted us to GreenMech initially was the... [Read More]
