Sow Easy

A new seed placement design has been introduced in the disc assembly seeding package on the Gandy Model 2820SS 20-inch self-propelled Slice n' Seed walk-behind overseeder. This improved orientation guides a higher percentage of seed into the slit for repairing or re-establishing grass in worn areas or establishing new grass varieties on greens and tees. The same improvement enhances Gandy's 4-foot-wide 3-point-hitch overseeder. The Slice n' Seed walk-behind model features an 8-hp Honda engine with centrifugal clutch, capable of seeding 22,000 square feet per hour. The seed box features Gandy's precision-mated stainless-steel bottom and slide with internal rotor driven by front-wheel drive.

Dual Fuels

The 2009 Scag Turf Tiger will soon be available in a dual-fuel model. A high-powered Kubota engine will allow the operator to run the machine on gasoline or liquid-propane (LP). The model's amazing flexibility allows it to be switched from one fuel source to another with the flip of a switch, even while mowing. Like all Turf Tiger models, this mower will feature a strong double-tube steel frame, big engine power (31-hp gas, 29-hp LP), along with the awesome cutting performance of a Turf Tiger, featuring the shaft-driven Velocity Plus cutter deck.
