The Need for Seed

New from Kasco Manufacturing, the 10-foot-wide Vari-Slice seeder. The Vari-Slice seeder is suitable for golf and sports turf applications for worked or no-till conditions and where tight germination of grass seed is needed. The disc angle can be adjusted quickly to move more aggressively over the ground with rugged cutting coulters to cut through roots, limbs and debris. Other widths of 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 feet are also available.

Paint Like a Pro on the Go

Graco’s ProStencil is a battery-powered, high-pressure airless hand-held paint sprayer. This sprayer works great for small logos, stencils or spraying unique colors in large logos. Add undiluted field marking paint to the 32-ounce cup and spray. Cleanup and color changes are simple, and there is no hose to contend with. Can also be used to touch up goal posts, storage buildings or to spot-treat weeds with water-based herbicide/weed killers. ProStencil comes complete with two 20V lithium-ion power pack batteries, battery charger, 24-inch spray extension, 32-ounce cup with cover and a storage case.

Emitter Update

Toro introduces a new emitter flow rate for its BlueLine dripline, which now includes a.26 gallons per hour (GPH) pressure-compensating (PC) emitter. The .26 GPH pressure-compensating emitter is the latest flow rate to complement Toro’s other BlueLine PC flow rates of .42, .53 and 1 GPH.

It’s a Wrap!

Sports field managers can now add a team logo or artwork to brand their stadium with new Bleacher Wrap from Beacon Athletics. The custom-designed panels provide access for storage below the bleachers. Bleacher Wrap is available in standard and custom sizes.

Infield Maintenance is a Drag

Newstripe has completely redesigned the Drag King infield drag and groomer. The new Drag King uses long-lasting, reversible, replaceable hardened teeth. This design increases cutting action on hard-packed surfaces and extends the life of the teeth. It has a 48-inch-wide cutting path and can be pulled with a garden tractor, ATV or light utility vehicle. Three sections allow scarifying, leveling and final grooming in a single pass. A debris basket catches large stone and trash. The scarifier flips over for transport or to level and finish without scarifying. The cutting blade position has been moved to the center section, improving leveling of baselines.
