EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY FOCUS 38 JULY 2017 OUTDOOR POWER EQUIPMENT www.outdoorpowerequipment.com TURF RENOVATORS (AERATORS, DETHATCHERS, SEEDERS & TOPDRESSERS) EXMARK 30-INCH STAND-ON AERATOR The Exmark 30-inch stand-on aerator features a split-tine design to allow easy turning with the tines engaged and zero-turn agility with the tines up. The compact design heightens maneuverability, while the 30-inch aeration width and 7.5-mph top speed deliver productivity of up to 1.7 acres per hour. Mass is centralized over the 48 coring tines for maximum core depth consistency, which is adjustable from 2 to 5 inches. The self-cleaning tines are easy to replace. Hydraulically actuated tine down force is adjustable by the operator, and the machine is capable of generating a massive 1,200 pounds of downward force. A Kawasaki FS481V twin- cylinder powerplant delivers professional-grade power, reliability and durability. Exmark Mfg. EXMARK 20-INCH SLICER SEEDER The Exmark 20-inch slicer seeder performs 3 jobs — verticutting, dethatching and overseeding — with each pass. Durable, high-carbon steel blades remove thatch and provide maximum seed-to-soil contact to ensure superior seed germination. A large-capacity 40-pound seed hopper increases productivity, allowing the 20-inch slicer seeder to handle larger jobs with fewer stops. The large-diameter mixer regulates seed flow based on ground speed to ensure even seed delivery in all conditions. Infinitely variable hydrostatic drive with powered reverse makes the 20-inch slicer seeder as easy to maneuver and operate as a self-propelled mower. The powerful Subaru EX 270 engine is reliable and fuel efficient. Exmark Mfg. GRASSHOPPER AERA-VATOR The Grasshopper Company's PTO-driven AERA-vator implement relieves compaction and aerates turf without prior irrigation, leaving no cores to clean up. Oscillating, forged steel tines penetrate and fracture sand and loosen hard, dry soils without slicing or cutting, preserving and encouraging root development. The AERA-vator provides effective aeration with minimal surface disruption, so turf is available for use immediately after treatment. Available in 40- and 60-inch models, the AERA-vator is ideal for the following applications: improving (low spot) drainage in turf areas that tend to pool; reducing the need for chemical applications through improved absorption; lifting and freshening beds without disturbing mulch; and preparing bare ground for seeding or sodding. The AERA-vator is compatible with Grasshopper Model 623T and any 700 or 900 Series power units. The Grasshopper Co.
