Add a Step

Exmark® has introduced the E-Z Rider, a new dedicated stand-on designed to help lawn-care professionals maximize the productivity of their Exmark walk-behind mowers. The exclusive QuickMount system allows the operator to easily attach and detach the E-Z Rider in seconds. It also enables an operator to fold up the E-Z Rider, securing it with a latch to the mower's engine frame. Doing this minimizes wear and trailer space requirements, and the integrated latch design eliminates the need for accessory straps or cords to secure the stand-on during transport. The large, stable operator platform facilitates operator control and safety.

Small and Icey

Manitowoc Ice, Inc., a leading manufacturer of commercial ice machines for the food-service industry, offers its largest capacity 30-inch-footprint ice machine, the S1200. This model produces up to 1,230 pounds of ice daily and offers the same industry-leading benefits associated with sanitation, savings, sound and serviceability as previously released models in the S-Series line. Improvements in sanitation make surfaces and parts that require cleaning 100-percent accessible from the front of the machine. The food zone has soft, rounded corners for quick and easy wipe-down. Minimal sound is achieved by placing the compressor on its own raised platform.

Clear Away Chloramines

Dectron, Inc., a leading international manufacturer of indoor air quality equipment, now offers the Chloraguard® indoor air purification system that removes harmful chloramines and other airborne contaminants commonly found in indoor pools spaces. Chloraguard is a gas-phase air purification module option that's factory-installed inline on the return air of new Dectron Dry-O-Tron® dehumidifiers or field-retrofittable on any existing pool dehumidifier brand. Conventional particle air filters that come standard in all dehumidifiers and air handlers can't remove chloramines, but the Chloraguard filter uses proprietary formulated chemical media, Multi-Mix®, to remove chloramines and other contaminants found in the pool's warm, humid environment.
