Load ‘Em Up
From the inception of the skid-steer loader nearly 50 years ago, Bobcat Company constantly has improved by incorporating innovative technological advances to its compact equipment. The tradition continues with the new K-Series skid-steer loaders (S130 through S300), compact track loaders (T140 through T300) and the A300 all-wheel steer loader. New to the K-Series loaders is the SmartFAN cooling system, a hydraulically driven cooling fan that senses machine operating temperatures and then self-regulates to rotate only as fast as it needs to. Bobcat upgraded the drive chains size on K-Series large-frame loaders and added K-Fore hydraulic systems to K-Series medium-frame loaders.

Sneak Learning Into Play
What’s more rewarding than to witness children learn as they play? The new BCI Burke Educational Panels encourage excitement and promote knowledge while encouraging children to interact with others through collaborative question-and-answer games based on the themes of the panels. The routed sections are offered in a variety of color combinations and five different styles. For example, the two-sided Name the States Panel engages children to learn the names, locations and year admitted to the Union of the 50 U.S. states, while the Solar System panel stimulates a love of science through learning about the planets and their relation to Earth.

With the new John Deere XT140SSELE professional-grade stick edger, edging never has been easier. This powerful maintenance tool allows operators to maneuver neatly around beds and gives grassy areas next to walks, curbs and drives that just-manicured look. Powered by a 25.6-cc, low-emission M-Series engine, the unit is efficient, quiet and durable. The large guide wheel makes for fast and easy edging, and its straight 59-inch shaft provides twice the torque of the traditional curved-shaft edger. The extra power helps the 8-inch blade hack through tough turf, while the adjustable depth control lets operators cut as deep as 2.25 inches.

Sloan Valve Company offers two new chrome-plated brass hand-washing faucets that automatically deliver either tempered or hot/cold water. Electronic pedestal model SF-2100 runs off a 6 VCD plug-in transformer with battery backup, and model SF-2150 is battery-powered. The faucets operate by means of an infrared sensor. When the user enters the sensor’s effective range, the solenoid activates the water flow. The faucet automatically turns off when the user steps away. This prevents recontamination from touching a handle to turn off water after washing. Automatic operation also conserves water and reduces maintenance and operational costs.
