The Classen PRO line of landscaping equipment offers productivity-enhancing features, such as hydrostatic transmissions, anti-vibration grips and power steering. The PRO line includes five products: a new stand-on aerator, a walk-behind aerator, an overseeder, a sod cutter and a turf rake. The overseeder, turf rake and sod cutter feature hydrostatic drives, which give the operator variable speed in forward or reverse. Classen also incorporated its patented split-drive system into the Pro PowerSteer walk-behind aerator, allowing the engine to power dual tine shafts independently for added maneuverability during aeration.
General Equipment Company’s M235 two-man hole digger features new polymeric Gen 2 Comfort-Flex operator handle technology with integrated flex-type handle grips for absorbing torque-related kickback forces and damping machine vibrations.
Featuring a Briggs & Stratton 190cc, 4.5-horsepower gas engine, the M235 delivers a maximum drilling torque of 154 foot-pounds. The newly designed, heavy duty, oil-cooled transmission includes a centrifugal all-metal clutch and machine-cut spur gears with a 1-inch diameter output shaft. The new transmission lock feature allows for easy removal of a stuck auger from the ground without disconnecting the power unit from the auger and helping prevent damage to both.
Little Beaver’s Kwik-Trench mini-trenchers, the KT200B and KT2400B, both trench up to 30 feet per minute. Featuring carbide-tipped teeth and a powerful drive system, the mini-trencher cuts through tough surfaces such as compacted clay, road fill, asphalt and tree roots up to 10 inches thick. Featuring a triple V-belt drive system, the Kwik-Trench achieves rotation speed up to 800 rpm. Precise cutting depth is achieved with a manual crank, while each trencher’s locking swivel wheel guides the unit. Powered by a 5.5-horsepower Honda engine, the KT 200B is capable of achieving depths up to 8 inches. The KT 2400B employs an 8-horsepower Honda engine and achieves depths up to 12 inches.
Little Wonder’s BRC-26 Hydro Brush Cutter features a hydrostatic drive with clutchless variable operating speeds — as fast as 4.2 miles per hour driving forward and 1.7 miles per hour in reverse. The brush cutter clears about an acre of heavy brush per hour, according to the OEM. It is designed to handle heavy, thick brush and trees up to 2 inches thick and 5 feet high. It features solid rods to connect the transmission, park brake and blade clutch eliminating the risk of branches getting tangled in and breaking cables. Other features include a wraparound hand guard across the handlebars and front of the machine.
Makita has expanded its line of 4-stroke engine power equipment with the release of three hedge trimmers that offer commercial-duty performance and lower emissions, with no fuel mixing required. The 20-inch 25.4cc MM4 Articulating Hedge Trimmer (EN4950H) features an articulating gear case with 13 angle settings for efficient trimming of overhead and low-lying hedges. The 24-inch 25.4cc MM4 Double-Sided Hedge Trimmer (EN5950SH) has high blade speed (4,200 SPM) for efficient cutting. And the 30- inch 25.4cc MM4 Single-Sided Hedge Trimmer (EN7350SH) combines high blade speed (4,200 SPM) with a scoop-shaped chip receiver for faster, easier clean-ups.
Incorporating customer feedback, Morbark added a new 12-inch chipper to its Beever product line. With the same large 60-inch x 31-inch chute opening and 15-inch x 12-inch throat opening as the standard M12R, the M12RX is designed to facilitate feeding of branches and reduce saw labor. The M12RX will be available with an 89-HP gasoline GM engine or a Tier 4 Final diesel engine. Like all Morbark chippers up to 18 inches, the M12RX can be equipped with Morbark’s optional ChipSafe Operator Safety Shield, which stops the chipper’s feeding mechanism if the operator’s ChipSafe gloves or ankle/wrist straps enter the ChipSafe sensing zone in the infeed chute.
The Lawnaire ZTS is Ryan’s first stand-on aerator. The drivetrain features an automatic chain-tensioning system and multiple easy-access panels designed to keep out debris. Features include a shock-absorbing operator platform, an aeration depth stop and an ergonomic, rapid hydraulic tine lift. The controls of the Lawnaire ZTS are designed for the rental market, requiring less time and experience to learn, while also designed for more comfort to the user, according to the OEM.
Southwest Products Quiet Power Mobile Generators feature an easy-to-use digital controller, sound attenuation and oversized alternators for better starting. The Tier 4 Final-rated QP 50 generator (pictured) is now available and SWP is rolling out additional Perkins Tier 4 Final-powered generator models throughout 2016 to fill product gaps in the marketplace. Quiet Power generators are built standard with a heavy gauge steel enclosure for maximum sound attenuation. The units are designed for high endurance and extended run times with reliable, heavy duty Perkins and Isuzu engines.
The Vermeer BC1000XL brush chipper is powered by an 89-horsepower PSI 3.0 L gas engine, with an electronic fuel injection system, and has a 12-inch chipping capacity. Designed with a large, rectangular 12- x 17-inch feed opening, the BC1000XL is designed to process difficult trees with minimal re-trimming of the branches. The BC1000XL features the Vermeer EcoIdle engine control system. When engaged, it automatically lowers engine speed to 1,400 rpm if the machine idles for 60 seconds or five minutes — as predetermined by the operator’s setting. EcoIdle helps the machine consume less fuel when the feeding process has frequent interruptions, and can help reduce noise emissions on the jobsite.
