A Tire Made for Work Applications

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has added the Wrangler DuraTrac to the Wrangler lineup of truck tires.

The DuraTrac offers TractiveGroove Technology, which provides enhanced traction in deep mud and snow, while the tire’s combination of highly angled center tread blocks and zig-zag microgrooves offer enhanced lateral stability and traction in rain and snow, all while reducing road noise. It also features a rugged tread rubber that helps resist tread block chipping, chunking and tearing, especially during heavy loading and towing applications, as well as a rim lock that helps prevent wheel slip for minimal balancing.

The DuraTrac offers 26 popular sizes to fit working trucks, including .5-ton, .75-ton and 1-ton applications.

Secure Your Load

Dramatic Spray Pattern

The Equinox is Otterbine Barebo’s 10th pattern in their Aerating Fountain line. Originally released in their 7.5 to 10 hp large Aerating Fountain line, it was redeveloped for their 1 to 5 hp product line. By incorporating the use of nozzles into the design, they were able to create an intricate multitiered display reminiscent of an architectural fountain, but retains the convenience of a floating fountain system, requiring no plumbing. The Equinox produces spray dimensions as tall as 20 feet and as wide as 72 feet.

Designed with GVWs from 2,000 to 7,000 pounds, these landscape/utility trailers are available in five models from 8 feet at 48 inches wide to a tandem model at 22 feet that is 82 inches wide. This trailer is ideal for hauling equipment or landscape material.

Kill Weeds With Steam

The Green Steam from Rittenhouse produces super-heated steam to 650 degrees Fahrenheit to kill weeds. It uses a standard 20-pound propane tank and 10-gallon water tank, as well as a deep cycle 12-volt battery to operate the diaphragm pump. It can be outfitted with an optional hose reel including 25 feet of hose.

The 60-pound machine can be transported from site to site; a skid-mounted version is also available.

Express Blower Comes Clean

Express Blower has enhanced its line of blower products to reduce complexity, increase productivity and maximize ease of use. The line of blowers, which includes both the EB (fully integrated with a chassis) and TM (truck or trailer-mounted) units, features a modified electronic package; a redesigned remote with enhanced frequency hopping technology; and updated design elements. Also, the seed injection system has been updated with a state-of-the-art automatic computer calibration system in which the end user can dial in an exact quantity of seed or fertilizer per the coverage area and the machine accurately delivers the right amount.

The units also now include a hydraulically activated door lock system with safety brake for the back door. Combined with the standard safety bar, the system helps ensure the door cannot be opened or closed without the operator being a safe distance away.
