1. TurnAer XT8 stand-on aerator
Company: Turfco

The XT8 is designed to be quick, with speeds of 7 mph, and nimble, with a 30-in. aerating width that fits through a 48-in. gate, the company says. The Auto-Depth Control lets operators eliminate guesswork by setting tine depth from 0-5 in. and ensure that depth is kept consistent across a property. The XT8 is equipped with a 22-hp engine from Briggs & Stratton with a cyclonic air cleaner and a three-year warranty.

2. Severe-duty Construction Buckets
Company: John Deere

John Deere now offers 90-in. Severe-Duty Construction Buckets. The 90-in. buckets come standard with a serrated edge that is reversible to a smooth side. The serrated side is efficient for cutting a graded surface; loosening hard-to-penetrate materials, such as packed gravel; or breaking up frozen ground. The smooth side cutting edge is more efficient for fine, finish-grade work and back-dragging materials, the company says. Bucket teeth are also available as an option.

Company: Hustler Turf

Hustler Turf introduced the MDV, an all-wheel-drive “maximum duty vehicle” that runs at a top speed of 37 mph. The utility vehicle offers a range of attachments, options and accessories. It also features LevelLift bed technology, which moves the cargo box with the flip of a switch and lets the user load or dump at any point along the mechanism’s arc of motion. The Hustler MDV is available in a standard bed model or with LevelLift.
