Municipal / NJPA / Co-operative Buying Programs

We understand that the buying needs for your municipality are different than that of a private land owner or a private business. Unlike the private sector, municipalities need to justify spending to the taxpayers, especially when capital equipment is involved. While price is important, we understand that there are also a number of other variables municipalities must factor in:

  • Maintenance Costs
  • Depreciation
  • Safety Features
  • Dealer Networks

With a large, and ever expanding dealer network covering the United States and other parts of the world, Morbark is dedicated to providing you with the best service possible. Our rugged equipment stands the test of time, keeping maintenance costs down and yielding a higher trade in value than competitive equipment.

We understand how important your time is and how tedious the government bidding process can be. We want to do everything we can to make this process as efficient and easy as possible – starting with getting you your bid specs all the way through the acceptance of your bid.

At Morbark, we know that, as public servants, it is your responsibility to do what is best for the citizens that reside in your hometowns. Your customers are your peers, friends, and families in your community. We take this very seriously. Let us and our network of dealers help you get the most reliable and safe tree care, forestry, and recycling equipment on the market.

Cooperative Purchasing Programs

Cooperative purchasing allows state and local governments to purchase items without having to go through the bid process, providing an easy way to buy equipment at a reduced cost.
