The new US250 sprayer from TurfEx features a universal mount that allows it to attach to the front of most available zero-turn mowers. The mounting system stays within the mower's footprint, unlike competitive tow-behind units. The US250 is completely electric powered with no engines or hydraulics to maintain. Driven by a 12-volt electric motor, the sprayer draws its power from the mower's battery. The pump is rated at 2 gallons per minute at 60 psi, and the corrosion-resistant polyethylene tank holds up to 25 gallons. To apply liquid, the US250 features an adjustable spray wand, which is attached to 25 feet of hose.

Briggs & Stratton
Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power offers a new low-rpm engine option, available on Vanguard Big Block V-twin engines, that is engineered to not only increase fuel efficiency, but also decreases noise levels and vibration. The new option leverages the power produced by the Big Block engines, reducing engine speed from the standard 3,600 rpm to 3,200 rpm. But while the engine speed decreases, the mower blade speed remains the same due to belt pulley ratios. Reducing engine speed creates a reverse torque to tap into when the machine is handling heavier workloads.

JP Carlton introduces the 1712 12-inch disk-style wood chipper, which is towable by smaller chip trucks. The Carlton Model 1712 incorporates a 48-inch by 28-inch infeed opening allowing it to swallow tops with little or no trimming. The 10 ½-inch diameter feed rollers accept the wood with minimal wrapping. Live hydraulics run the hydraulic pump directly off an integral engine plug-in, minimizing maintenance because there is no pump belt to maintain and no side loading of the pump shaft. A digital adjustable autofeed monitors engine rpm.
