Bandit has partnered with New River Equipment to produce and distribute the Bandit Revolution cutter wheel and associated parts, including the SaberTooth cutting teeth, for most stump grinder makes and models.

Kohler Engines expands its line of Command PRO EFI engines with the launch of new 34- and 38-hp models. The new additions are designed for end users seeking higher horsepower in conjunction with the significant fuel cost and maintenance savings. The Kohler closed-loop EFI engines include an oxygen sensor that analyzes the air/fuel mixture in the muffler. If the oxygen level strays from the ideal air/fuel mixture, the sensor triggers adjustments to the amount of fuel injected into the system. The closed-loop EFI technology has been shown to save end-users up to $600 in fuel per year when compared to a Kohler carbureted engine under comparable loads and duty cycles and based on 600 hours of annual operation.
