LawnGrips are footwear designed for landscapers and other lawn care professionals. They have many safety and performance features that include patented Grip ‘N Go sole for traction on wet grass and uneven surfaces; a steel shank for support, stability and comfort; a steel toe that meets ANSI standards; a rugged, premium leather upper that is stain- and water-resistant; a rubber overtoe that resists scuffs that come from kneeling; and a neoprene cuff that keeps clippings and critters out.

BACKPACK BLOWER

Shindaiwa introduces the EB8510 backpack blower that comes equipped with a 79.7cc overhead cam 4.5-hp engine. At the end of its 65-mm tube nozzle, the machine delivers wind velocities of up to 224 mph and maximum airflow is 762 CFM. The EB8510's C4 engine — a hybrid technology that delivers huge torque under load and combines all-position utility of two-cycle engines with the reduced vibration and emissions four-cycle — meets California's strictest clean air standards. Large, padded, quick-adjust shoulder straps, a thick back pad and built-in carry handle add to user comfort.

MOWER


Dixon Industries introduces the Black Bear ZTR Pro Series Mower, which is a 34-inch cut-width model designed for a small footprint to get in and out of tight spaces and through most standard gates. There is also a 44-inch model available. The Black Bear comes with a 16-hp Kawasaki KAI twin cylinder engine or a 1-hp Kohler Command Pro single cylinder engine. The mower features oversized front and rear tires for easy handling, a comfortable ride and lower soil compaction. Optional attachments include a two-bag grass catcher, a mulch kit, ROPS and a snow blade.

ZERO-TURN MOWER

Wright Manufacturing introduces a mid-mount, zero-turning-radius commercial mower that can be powered by a 21-, 23- or 25-hp engine with a choice of 48-, 52- or 61-inch deck width. Wright mounted the engine nearly 3 inches lower than most mid-mounts, and the hydro drive pulley is mounted on the bottom of the engine drive shaft. This allows the hydro pumps to be mounted 6 inches lower than most mid-mounts. The result is a significantly lower center of gravity. The rear-wheel motors can be moved fore and aft through three different settings, which keep the proper weight balance with collection systems.

LAWN TRACTOR

Snapper intro-duces the LT 200 Series lawn tractors that come equipped with Briggs & Stratton Intek engines. Choose from an 18.5-hp single cylinder OHV up to a 22-hp twin-cylinder OHV. The engines run quietly thanks to a large 5-inch muffler and they are easy to start. Each of the four mower decks — 38-, 42-, 44- and 50-inch — is easy to remove and features a deep-profile design, which creates a powerful airflow to lift grass blades for an even cut and dispersal of clippings. There are seven height-of-cut options, as well as a mulch kit or bagging system.
