Bobcat announces its new A220 all-wheel-steer loader with skid-steer loader capabilities. The A220 offers two different steering modes — all-wheel-steer (AWS) and skid-steer — with the flip of a switch in the operator's cab. It gives landscape contractors a smooth ride, low tire wear and the reduced ground disturbance of a wheel loader while providing the compact size, tight turning radius and maneuverability of a skid-steer loader. Because it is built with the same mainframe as a Bobcat 863 skid-steer loader and T200 compact track loader, the A220 offers the same multi-attachment capabilities. Bobcat

Toro's Multi Pro 5600 sprayer delivers accurate spray coverage for better control of turf diseases and pests. The spray system has a dual diaphragm pump that can run dry without damaging the seals or pump. The o-ring sealed system components are designed to be leak free. The optional Pro Control computerized controller works in conjunction with a fast-acting hydraulic valve to ensure instant response and precise application rate. The hydraulic control valve also compensates by changing pump rpm to eliminate a pressure spike or drop when turning boom sections on or off and for variations in ground speed. The pump and spray system design allow a much lower rpm spray pressure for hand spraying. An accelerator-locking device provides a constant spraying speed. The Toro Co.
