Pop Goes the Popper
Gold Medal Products’ #2488SR Pop About Popper addresses two common challenges in the rental market: ease of transport and inadequate power. This special version of the Super 88 has acrylic front and side panels in place of heavier glass. The side panels also have convenient handholds that provide a natural place to lift and carry the popper. The doors are 50 percent thicker and cannot lift off accidentally. Gold Medal also includes cord-wrap brackets for the power cord. The 2488SR has exclusive Energy Management Control that ensures the popper gets a steady 120v regardless of the receptacle voltage.

The SICO Pacer is designed to take the work out of setup, tear-down and trips to storage. These tables fold and roll quickly and easily into storage and back into action the minute you need them. Because SICO Pacer tables store on their own built-in wheels, their tops are not subjected to the constant punishment that conventional folding tables endure. The exceptionally attractive high-pressure laminate top and Armor-Edge also give facilities the option of eliminating linen or skirting. With faster turns and linens as an option, not a requirement, labor is reduced and savings increased.

Newstripe’s all new Dirt Doctor JrTM infield groomer has been designed specifically to be pulled by four-wheel-drive utility vehicles or compact tractors. It shares the same great features and rugged durability of the original Dirt Doctor but weighs in at just under 600 pounds. Dirt Doctor Jr replaces three separate implements in one convenient unit. It can plow, pulverize, drag, compact and finish-drag a 4-foot-wide path in one pass. The three-position reversible harrow teeth, four-position pulverizer bar and wheels are quickly and easily adjusted without tools. The optional 6-foot finish drag with reversible lead bar can be detached and used as a separate pull-behind drag for between-inning touch-ups.
