Compact-Duty Plows

Arctic Snow and Ice Control Product’s new line of Compact-Duty sectional snow plows are designed to be compatible with small skid steers, compact tractors and small wheel loaders.

Ideally, these plows would be perfect for clearing small parking lots, sidewalks, and larger driveways.

The Compact-Duty plow features a sectional moldboard design. Each 24” section of the plow is designed to move up and down independently, allowing the plow to contour to uneven surfaces. The plow will also automatically adjust to pavement grade, resulting in fewer missed areas. Every section comes with a spring-loaded trip edge and a polyurethane cutting edge. Bolt-on mechanical side panels rotate up and over small obstructions.

The plows come in three different models; the smallest is 6’ long and weighs 1,000 pounds. An 8’ plow weighs 1,108 pounds and a 10’ plow weighs in at 1,216 pounds. Every CD plow is backed with a 2-year limited warranty.

Wastewater/Industrial Controller

The AIC controller is engineered to meet the demands of site water management for wastewater, both industrial and agricultural. Based on the Tucor TWC platform, the AIC combines traditional irrigation capability with the “what if” functionality of a programmable logic controller (PLC).

With WEB access, the AIC can be remotely programmed to manage up to 10 sensor points with as many multiple actions, based on user-defined thresholds. It also has the ability to manage flow, pressure, differentials and tank levels.

The AIC is designed for pumping, water harvesting, and filtering applications that ultimately require an irrigation application. Tucor, Inc.

Rear-Discharge Mower

Gravely Pro-Master 260 mowers are now available with a rear-discharge deck option. Clippings are diverted behind the mower, on the turf, instead of being flung across roadways and sidewalks.

The rear-discharge deck also offers increased safety, as projectiles picked up by the mower are directed down and backwards. This reduces the risk when mowing near people, windows or vehicles.

The mower features a 60" cutting width, based on the seven-gauge X Factor deck currently found on Gravely’s side discharge model. The 260 is powered by a 27hp Briggs & Stratton Daihatsu diesel engine. The mower has a ground speed of up to 13 mph, and a 13.4 gallon tank. Gravely Circle 190 on Reader Response Card
