TurfTime Equipment recently added a heavy-duty dump trailer to its line of turf management equipment. The model DT-12 offers a 12,000-pound GVW. The bed size of this dump trailer is 108 inches by 76 inches, with 20-inch removable sides. The sides have pockets so users can add the optional 20-inch mesh side extension. The unit’s tailgate has the option of folding down with chain support, or hinging at the top. The dump has dual-action cylinder, heavy structural tubing chassis with four-wheel walking axels, 14-inch turf tires and greaseable pivots and wheel bearings. A premium, powder coat finish comes standard on the unit.
ECHO recently launched its new ProXtreme 2620 products. This new ECHO 2620 lineup (26cc engine family) includes a standard trimmer (SRM-2620), a high-torque trimmer (SRM-2620T), a brush cutter (SRM-2620U) and an edger (PE-2620). According to the company, the ECHO ProXtreme Series offers a unique combination of high power and low weight. The newly-designed 25.4 cc two-stroke engine delivers 1.35 hp. The weight reduction is achieved primarily by using military-grade magnesium, as opposed to aluminum. The SRM-2620 trimmer uses a 1.62:1 gear reduction, while the SRM-2620T features a 2:1 gear reduction. The PE-2620 edger uses a curved shaft design for better sight lines and more ergonomic tool positioning when in use.
Exmark recently introduced a 60-inch Quest S-Series model zero-turn riding mower, which features the company’s fabricated and welded Series 2 cutting decks. “Fabricated cutting decks are stronger, stiffer and more durable than stamped steel cutting decks,” says Exmark Director of Marketing Daryn Walters. The 4-inch deep, full-floating, Series 2 cutting deck features a foot-operated, single-point height adjustment system. The unit also comes equipped with Exmark’s sealed bearing blade spindles. The steel uni-body frame design places the operator and major components lower, with better mass centralization for better handling and increased stability, according to the company. Quest S-Series models also feature a high-back comfort seat with spring suspension to reduce the impact and vibration that reaches the operator.
The Toro Co. now offers Two-Post Roll-Over Protection System (ROPS) extension options on select Toro Groundsmaster and Reelmaster models. Designed with a focus on ergonomics, the Two-Post ROPS extension kits allow for adding several accessories to deliver a high level of operator comfort in an economical package, the company says. Featuring several ergonomic benefits to the end user, the system allows grounds and equipment managers the ability to select options that are right for their respective applications. This includes an interior adjustable-speed fan for increased ventilation, a sunshade that shelters the operator for the elements and interior and exterior visibility.
