Climbing Fun

Landscape Structures offers the new Sky Rail, a challenging play event that comes in two distinct forms: an integrated ground-to-deck climber or an independent play unit. The Sky Rail provides kids a fun and innovative climbing experience that builds upper-body strength and coordination. It also gives playground planners a piece that adds visual and aesthetic interest to the area. As an integrated component, the Sky Rail presents a creative way to move from the ground to a 64-inch or 72-inch deck. As an independent event, Sky Rail's three sturdy climbing legs provide superior stability and safety.

Good Groomer

Newstripe offers the improved Drag King infield groomer, which features an innovative three-section design that combines the grooming capabilities of conventional hand-pulled mats with the field-conditioning capabilities of units that cost thousands of dollars more. The Basic 2 section model, pulled by hand without weights, quickly grooms base lines and infields to a ready-to-play state. Add the scarifier/ballast box section and weights, attach to any standard lawn and garden tractor, lower the reversible scarifier/planing blades, and take up to a 1-inch-deep cut to bring rougher fields back to like-new shape. The all-steel, 48-inch-square Drag King comes with an 18-month warranty.

Painless Pool Cleaning

Aqua Vac Systems has made its KingShark2 and KingShark2 Plus commercial pool cleaners lighter and easier to handle. The cleaners now come standard with the new Quick Release Filter System that reduces the weight of the machine by 25 to 30 pounds as well as a new larger handle, which allows you to place and remove the cleaner from the pool more easily. The improved filter system enables you to remove the filter while the cleaner is still in the water, which brings the weight down. The new handle is located on the hood of the machine, providing more support.
