Lawn and garden products

Chip, trim, cut and split

This month Rental Management looks at lawn and garden products, including chippers, trimmers, mowers, aerators and log splitters.

Canycom USA flail mower

The CG101 walk-behind flail mower from Canycom USA, Bellevue, Wash., has a rubber track system designed for smooth operation on a variety of soil conditions as well as on steep terrain. The flails are mounted on a continually adjustable mower head. The handle bars can be adjusted to the height of the operator. The machine is powered by a 10-hp Subaru self-starting gasoline engine with a heavy-duty hour meter.



SourceOne Outdoor Power Equipment aerator

The PL410 rental aerator from SourceOne Outdoor Power Equipment, Lincoln, Neb., has a storage size of 22 in. in width, 22 in. in height and 37 in. in length designed for easier transport. The company says the PL410 can produce aeration results similar to  machines twice its size.



Iron & Oak Commercial Products log splitter

The Duro-Glide series log splitters from Iron & Oak Commercial Products, Streator, Ill., have a cold-finish and steel top plate, along with composite inserts in the wedge, which the company says gives the splitting components a precision fit that extends the cylinder seal and wedge life. Other standard features include the E-Z lift hinge system designed to allow the log splitter to be changed from horizontal to vertical.



Deere & Co. zero-turn mower

The 23.3-hp Z915B zero-turn mower from Deere & Co., Moline, Ill., comes with the option of a 48-, 54- or 60-in. seven-gauge steel deck. The mower is equipped with full-size rear tires designed for increased stability on hillsides and can travel up to 10 mph, the company says. An optional, integrated material collection system is designed to allow professional landscapers
to equip the mower with two or three bags. The B Series also comes with professional grade seat options.



Toro aerator

The Toro® 30-in. dual hydro stand-on aerator from The Toro Co., Bloomington, Minn., has a Kawasaki® FS481 V-Twin engine with integrated hydraulics designed to follow the contours of the ground to pull even plugs over hills and soft ground without tearing up the turf. The machine applies up to 1,200 lbs. of down pressure on the tines to pull up to 5-in. cores. The company says the electronic controls also allow the operator to raise and lower the tines instantly for quicker zero-turn maneuvers without taking their hands off the controls.





STIHL trimmer

The FS 130 R trimmer from STIHL, Virginia Beach, Va., is powered by a 36.3cc 4-MIX engine designed to provide 30 percent more power than the company’s FS 110, the company says. The FS 130 R comes standard with the STIHL AUTOCUT® 25–2 TapAction™ line head. Optional, interchangeable gearbox attachments convert the FS 130 R powerhead into a variety of multi-task landscaping tools, including a scythe, pruner, lawn edger, hedge trimmer
and mini cultivator.



Green Manufacturing stump cutter wheel

The Green Wheel from Green Manufacturing, Morenci, Mich., is a 100 percent CNC-machined wheel for stump cutters that, the company says, has improved balance that helps eliminate jumps for  smoother cutting and also reduces machine and parts wear.



STEC Equipment brushcutter attachment

The Rotadairon BRD 50 brushcutter from STEC Equipment, is designed for mini skid-steer units. It uses a flail shaft to shred anything up to 2½ in. in diameter. As a safety feature, it has a hydraulic clutch to stop the rotor in a matter of seconds, the company says.




Split-Fire log splitter

The log splitters from Split-Fire Sales, Norwich, Ontario, Canada, have two-way splitting action with a knife that splits in both directions. The splitters have design elements to prevent “fly-outs” or “kick-outs” by keeping pressures centered and a log stop that relieves side pressure.




RAYCO Manufacturing brush chipper

The redesigned RC6D 6-in. chipper from RAYCO Manufacturing, Wooster, Ohio, can be outfitted with either a 25- or 35-hp gasoline engine and comes standard with VersaFeed automatic feed control. The company says a wider stance than the previous model maintains better stability when cornering and traveling over uneven terrain. The chipper’s Torflex® suspension axle has been upgraded to 3,500-lb. capacity for longer life, the company says.




Billy Goat Industries brushcutter

The BC2600 Outback® brushcutter from Billy Goat Industries, Lee’s Summit, Mo., has a Tuff Torq™ hydro transmission with enhanced traction control for positive traction on hillsides, a ±12-degree pivoting deck with return-to-neutral and a 26-in.-wide deck with higher tip speed. The company says the wide plow-style handles provide easier access to forward and reverse.
