This Mule’s a Workhorse

The 2013 Kawasaki Mule 4010 Trans4x4 Diesel allows up to four people to carry 400 pounds of sod, soil or other material for their next project. The rear seat also folds up to transform the tilting cargo bed into a 1,100-pound capacity transport for major payloads. Features include a tubular steel front brush guard that improves durability and helps protect the nose, a multifunction digital fuel level and hour meter, a dash-mounted horn button that eliminates unintended beeps when turning and a 2-inch receiver hitch that allows towing of up to 1,200 pounds.

Mowers From Across the Pond

Dennis offers its G series walk-behind mowers in three versions: the 26-inch G660, 30-inch G760 and 34-inch G860. Many soccer stadiums, such as those belonging to top clubs Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Real Madrid, are cut and maintained with a Dennis G860 cassette system mower. There are 11 different cassettes that can be slotted into the mower to carry out tasks ranging from dethatching and verticutting to brushing, making the G860 a versatile machine.

Pro Probe

The new TH300 from Dynamax is a fast, accurate and completely portable soil moisture probe. Based on TH2O, Theta probe technology, the TH300 uses the SM150 soil moisture sensors. Results are in water by volume (<0x00B1> 2.5 percent). The HH2 readout stores over 1,000 data points, which can be downloaded to a PC and imported into spreadsheets. The SM300 minimizes soil disturbance, preserving the original soil structure around the measurement rods. It is easy to insert and install whether at the soil surface or at depth. The SM300 is a dual-purpose probe; it can be used both with the HH2 hand-held Moisture Meter for instant moisture readings, or left in situ for data logging of moisture and temperature.
