Snow’s No Match for This Snowblower

The Reist 8000 Series, Triple-Auger snowblower has three discharge options. Through a unique rotating fan housing design, the operator can select to discharge through the chute or bypass the chute to discharge directly from the fan housing to either side.

Available in 9 and 10-foot widths, with custom widths available. Features a 50-inch-diameter fan with six blades, and 24-inch bottom auger and 14-inch middle and top auger.

Sensor System Saves Water

The UgMO ProHome works in conjunction with residential and small commercial irrigation systems to regulate watering based on optimum underground moisture levels. UgMO’s smart sensors are placed underground in each sprinkler zone to measure soil moisture and temperature at the root level up to six times an hour, 24 hours a day. These sensors wirelessly transmit data in real time on a zone-by-zone basis to an UgMO ProHome base station installed next to a new or existing irrigation clock. The base station determines when the grass and/or plantings have reached their optimum moisture level, and if the ground is sufficiently moist, the unit interrupts the sprinkler, turning it off before any water is wasted.

Plow With Ease

Turf Teq’s Model 1305PL Plow is 46 inches wide and is ideal for snow removal. The angle (left-right) can be adjusted from the operator position and its unique design allows the blade to oscillate or be locked into position. It features a spring-loaded trip release and a replaceable cutting edge while employing a fully hydrostatic transmission with forward/reverse and a 13 hp Honda engine. It can be converted into a Power Edger, Power Broom, Power Rake or Brush Cutter for all-season use.

New Ventrac Salt Spreader

The Ventrac SS575 salt spreader for the Ventrac 4000 series spreads material such as bagged rock salt and calcium flake. With the optional gate installed, the SS275 can also spread bagged ice melters and calcium pellets, and an optional vibrator kit also allows for bulk salt to be spread.

The spreader features a 5.75-cubic-foot hopper, which carries up to 460 pounds, and a see-through weather cover for the hopper. An electronic control box features an electronic speed control and on/off switch. A drop curtain is optional for spreading material in tight quarters.

Point and Click Online Property Measuring

Go iLawn has released a new version of its online property measuring service, which allows contractors to search, identify and measure properties with a few clicks of a mouse. Features of the online service include 100 percent coverage of the United States and Canada; point and click measuring tools; property measurements can be saved for use at a later date; measurements can be color-coded, labeled, copied and edited; and units of measure can be converted on the fly.

SnowEx Spreader for Off-Highway Ice Management

The SP-7000 Tow Pro spreader from SnowEx has a 1.4-cubic-yard capacity, tows behind tractors and UTVs with a lawn and garden hitch, and eliminates the need to mount a large spreader in the truck bed. The unit can handle all available materials for ice management, including sand, salt/ice melt or any combination in-between. The system includes a multi-angled hopper for enhancing material flow to the spreader’s inverted-V baffle auger, which then delivers material to a precise spot on the spinner. It also contains an integrated vibrator to reduce clumping and promote consistent feeding.

With an 18-inch, stainless-steel spinner, the unit is capable of spreading material up to 30 feet wide. For maximum control of the spread pattern, the spinner can be tilted zero to 15 degrees downward.
