Barko 930 B

Morin Diesel is the latest addition to Barko Hydraulics’ U.S. dealer network. Barko says the Portland, Connecticut-based Morin will handle distribution of land clearing equipment to the northeast part of the country.

Barko says Morin will sell, rent and service Barko industrial wheeled tractors for states throughout the Northeast, from Pennsylvania and Maryland up through New England. Morin will also sell back of cab loaders and other Barko product lines in the immediate vicinity of the dealer’s new, 14,000-square-foot facility in Portland.

“We’re excited to bring a growing company like Morin Diesel aboard our dealer network,” says Barko marketing coordinator Katie Grymala. “Their focus on forestry, and on mulching equipment in particular, makes them a perfect fit to carry our powerful machines.”

“The Barko IWT is a top-notch rubber-tired machine for the land clearing market, so it was an easy decision to take on the product line,” says Jesse Morin, president of Morin Diesel. “My heart has always been in the woods since growing up in the family land clearing business, and I’m looking forward to this new chapter and collaboration with Barko.”
