Gold Eagle Co., is now offering a Diesel Formula STA-BIL to keep diesel fuel fresh for quick, easy starts. Designed for use at every fill-up, this new formula prevents sludge and sediment from forming in diesel fuel, protects against corrosion, reduces oxidation of diesel fuel caused by thermal breakdown and helps remove water from diesel fuel, which bacteria, fungus and algae require to grow. It also contains extra lubricity and detergents to protect and clean the entire fuel system.
Dual-Purpose Parking Garage Melter
The SND580 from Snow Dragon is a snowmelter can be used on the top deck of a parking garage. The dual-axle snowmelter weighs approximately 10,000 pounds filled with fuel and water and only 6,500 pounds empty, allowing it to be towed by a properly-sized Ford 150 or Dodge Ram 1500 or higher. The melt rating on the unit is 18 tons per hour, allowing it to be used on standard melting applications as well.
Adjust Seasonally Without Reprogramming
Underhill International has introduced WaterDex, an innovative palm-sized remote that adjusts sprinkler run-times without reprogramming the irrigation controller. The WaterDex includes a mini-transmitter (3 by 2 by 2 inches) with a 200-foot line-of-sight range and micro-receiver that hard-wires into the irrigation controller. By dialing up or down on the WaterDex, end-users can immediately increase or decrease sprinkler run-times for any zone throughout their system, without affecting the programming cycle. The controller remains set at a maximum summer schedule and is fine-tuned by percentage in 10-degree increments as the seasons change, based on zip code location and the regional watering index.
The TRU-Mulch line from Finn Corporation features six mulches specifically designed to meet the demands of various erosion control and hydroseeding projects. The wood fibers used throughout the line originate from virgin poplar and pine wood chips from forests of the eastern U.S. The mulches undergo an advanced “double refining” process that uses high-pressure steam to create fiber from wood chips, and a nontoxic green dye is added to increase visibility during application and to enhance aesthetic appeal. The six products included the line: TRU-Wood for basic erosion control and hydroseeding needs; TRU-Wood with HydroStik, which features Finn’s HydroStik tackifier allowing a stronger binding of fibers to the soil; TRU-Blend, which combines the superieor holding strength of wood fiber with a clean, recycled paper product; TRU-Blend with HydroStik, featuring Finn’s HydroStik tackifier; TRU-Max SMM, a stabilized mulch matrix for three-to-six-month soil stabilization; and TRU-Bond BFM for superior holding power on the toughest slopes.
Trench in Tight Spaces
The Toro TRX-26 walk-behind trencher features the Toro Dingo TX-style control system, making it easy to control, eliminating the “jerk” steering required with handlebar steering, allowing for smoother, more precise trenching. And, with its zero-turn maneuverability and ground pressure as low as 4.1 PSI, it can access confined spaces without damaging turf.
The TRX-26 can be outfitted with 2, 3 or 4-foot boom attachments, allowing it to trench up to 8 inches wide and up to 48 inches deep.

The polyethylene pipe is available in lengths of 410, 492 and 558 feet, with diameters of 2 1/8 and 2.5 inches. In one irrigation run, the sprinkler covers up to 230 feet side to side over a maximum irrigated length of 656 feet. A second strip opposite the first area can be irrigated following the initial run without having the change the position of the unit. At a working pressure of at least 3.5 bar, the unit achieves precise flow rates of 21 to 88 GPM.
