Earth & Turf Dri-Flo Drop
Earth & Turf Products announces a new line of drop spreaders to spread dry, fine materials with 15 precise settings. The launch of the Dri-Flo drop spreader series is designed in 3′, 4′, and 5′ models to accommodate individuals looking to spread dry lime, seed, and fertilizer. The Dri-Flo line is modeled after the Conestoga stainless-steel drop spreaders. It aims for a more affordable quality option with a simpler build, leaving the box lid and 2nd agitator as options, changing to a 14 gauge painted steel box, and removing the main auger clutch. The line has a thick axle to handle full box capacities of lime and other heavy materials. Tall 23″ x 12″ tires offer an all-terrain option for straddling rows or going down ATV trails.

Redesigned Z-Spray Stand-On Spreader Sprayers
Z Turf Equipment has redesigned its Z-Spray line of zero-turn stand-on spreader sprayers for 2023. The new low center of gravity design places the operator between the drive wheels, with the heaviest components placed low and centrally within the corrosion-resistant stainless-steel frame. A bi-directional boom is capable of springing both forward and back to avoid damage. The patented foam marker activation starts the foam marker and spray pump simultaneously whether using the toe switch or the panel-mounted rocker switch. A contoured operator pad and revised control layout provide increased comfort and economy of motion, while larger drive tires provide a smoother ride. The new Z-Spray machines are also designed to only need annual maintenance, with just one grease point.
