42 October 2017 Landscape and Irrigation EQUIPMENT FOCUS Bobcat Snow Pusher Attachment C o l l e c t a n d p u s h s n ow — a n d c l e a r big winter jobs — with the Bobcat snow pusher attachment. The open bottom and wide body deliver pure pushing power for maximum snow removal speed and efficiency. And with more collecting and holding capabilities, larger areas can be cleared without stopping as often. Flotation and oscillation of the moldboard keep the snow pusher in contact with the ground without damaging equipment or property, allowing for snow removal over decorative and sensitive surfaces. Cat 908M compact wheel loader The Cat M Series compact wheel loaders — 906M, 907M and 908M — feature Caterpillar's exclusive Optimized Z-bar loader linkage, which combines aggressive digging power with parallel lift. These models use a 75-gross-horsepower engine with an electrically controlled hydrostatic drive system. Electro-hydraulic controls allow for engineering enhancements for the drive system, implement controls, auxiliar y hydraulic system and loader linkage. A range of work tools and couplers are available, ensuring optimum versatility and productivity. Valuable options include a high-speed configuration, ride control system and high-flow hydraulics. Grasshopper metal, full-view winter cab The fully enclosed, full-view, metal winter cab protects the oper ator from harsh winter elements. Fits 700 and 900 Series FrontMount mowers equipped with joystick- controlled DriftBuster snow throwers, Little Bully dozer blades, CleanSweep rotar y brooms or a 60-inch V-plow. Electr ic windshield wiper and LED lights standard. Options include a 16,000-btu heater and lower panels for manual-lift implements. Hiniker skid-steer snow pushers Hiniker Company recently introduced its new 3600 Series skid-steer snow pushers. The snow pushers are available in 96- and 120-inch widths and feature a durable rubber cutting edge that provides superior cleaning on paved surfaces. With 36-inch-tall by 36-inch-deep sides, the box-type snow pusher offers plenty of snow moving capacity. 3/8-inch steel construction side plates provide strength and durability, while heavy-duty steel skids allow for floatation over uneven surfaces. A universal skid-steer attachment system makes connecting the snow pusher quick and easy. Honda HSS928 and HSS1332 two-stage snow blower Honda HSS928 and HSS1332 two-stage snow blower models are eco-conscious, tough performers in the most extreme of environments. Powered by a high-torque Honda 270cc GX270 OHV engine, Honda HSS928 snow blowers are intended for aggressive snow clearing and available in both wheel-driven (HSS928AW and HSS928AWD) and dual-track, self-propelled models (HSS928AT and HSS928ATD). The innovative design enables a 28-inch clearing width, a discharge distance of up to 52 feet, and a clearing capacity of up to 1,900 pounds of snow per minute. Honda HSS928 snow blowers also offer a choice of manual or electric starting. Even greater capability in a walk-behind machine is found in the Honda HSS1332, capable of clearing a 32-inch swath with its commercial grade 390cc GX390 Honda four-stroke engine. The track-driven HSS1332 can move up to 2,750 pounds per minute at a discharge distance of up to 56 feet. Husqvarna ST 131 snow thrower Husqvarna's ST 131 is easy to transport and maneuver, and clears walkways and narrow paths in up to eight inches of new snow that larger commercial equipment would struggle with. The ST 131's efficient rubber auger ensures optimum clearing of all types of hard surfaces and allows you to clear snow from delicate surfaces without worrying about causing damage or scratches. The remote chute rotator provides a more simplified and convenient way to control snow distribution. The electric starter allows you to start the engine when connected to a Snow Removal and Ice Management Equipment
