ASV introduces the RC-50 to their line of equipment to compete directly with skid-steers. The RC-50 is the exact same size and has the same weight, lift height and horsepower for a similar price as the current skid-steers. The only difference is that the RC-50 uses a rubber-track system that provides more traction, power and digging ability, and greater load retention and durability. The RC-50 is a mid-sized, mid-priced, rubber-tracked loader. It weighs 4,500 to 5,500 lbs, with an operating capacity of 1,350 to 1,600 lbs, and includes ASV's patented Maximum Traction & Support System (MTSS) undercarriage. The RC-50 also has a ground pressure of 2.7 lbs, per square inch, and does virtually no environmental harm in sensitive areas. ASV

Kubota's zero-turn mower, the ZD28, offers turf professionals a mower equipped with a durable liquid-cooled 3-cylinder E-TVCS (Three Vortex Combustion System) diesel engine. The ZD28 is powered by the 28-hp D1105, which has higher torque curves than gas-powered ZTRs. Kubota's engine-mounting system reduces vibration and noise while hot engine air is discharged to the rear of the mower away from the operator. A large 8-gallon fuel tank in combination with the fuel-efficient diesel engine allow the operator to work longer without having to stop as often to refuel. Kubota

DECORATIVE BAIT STATION
J. L. Innovations' new rodent bait station is designed to look like a landscaping rock. The Rodent Rock Café bait station blends in with the natural environment and comes in dark granite, light granite, slate and sandstone. It has a patented entry that prevents water from entering the station while at the same time disguises the appearance of even being an opening. The bait compartment is constructed with a removable rod that can securely hold block poison, and when removed will hold most all other kinds of bait formulations. The Rodent Rock Café is 15 inches wide, 11 inches deep, 6 inches tall and weighs 2 pounds. J.L. Innovations, Inc.
