Bandit 007XP Series
Bandit unveils its new line, the 007XP Series, a collection of disc and drum chippers. All Bandit drum-style chippers have increased in-feed capacities and enlarged chipper openings, allowing them to more effectively dispose of larger and limbier material. The drums in Bandit drum-style chippers are 37 in. in diameter and are of baffled construction for durability. No structural changes were made to Bandit's disc-style chippers, but a new 15-in. capacity disc-style model, the 255, was introduced, featuring an enlarged chipper opening and in-feed hopper.

Maxus EX8015
Maxus is rolling out the EX8015 twinstack air compressor that's easy to move from place to place, thanks to two pneumatic tires and a retractable handle. The 5-gal. EX8015 features a 1.3 running HP electric motor that delivers 3.7 SCFM at 90 PSI and an oil-lubricated pump for long-lasting performance. An integrated control panel includes easy-to-read gauges and two quick connect couplers, and protects critical working components from jobsite damage. The unit also includes lifting handle for loading and unloading.

Turfco Direct LS-22 Overseeder
The new Turfco Direct LS-22 overseeder features an updated control layout that puts the most often-used controls - the positive open/close seed flow control, lift bail and blade clutch - on the handle, within easy reach of the operator. In addition, an overall lower spring tension in the blade clutch bail reduces the hand pressure required for operation. The effect of these changes has virtually eliminated the need for bending over while operating the LS-22. Optimized 1-in. blade spacing and micro-screw depth adjustment provides quick, accurate blade adjustments for optimal seed-to-soil contact in any conditions. A new seed window allows the user to quickly reference seed levels, and large pneumatic tires easily roll over uneven terrain, enhancing the LS-22's all-conditions performance.

With its command mode switch, voltage and frequency fluctuations are minimal, protecting the connected equipment from excessive wear and burnout. There are two 115-volt and two 230-volt, single-phase, fused outlets for maximum flexibility. Plus, an automatic V-belt tensioning device ensures proper power transmission and low maintenance.

Subaru Diesel Generators
Subaru introduces a new line of diesel generators, powered by Hatz four-cycle, single-cylinder diesel engines. The RGD3300H and RGD5000H join Subaru's extensive existing lines of gasoline-powered generators while providing more convenient yet durable operation for diesel-ready jobsites, such as in the oil, mining and marine industries. The RGD3300H uses a 6.8-hp Hatz 1B30 engine with a rated output of 3,000 watts, while the larger RGD5000H uses a 9.9-hp Hatz 1B40 for a rated output of 5,000 watts. Both models in the diesel line have electric starters with recoil backup, while GFCI receptacles and fuseless circuit breakers protect the current level.

In the Spotlight
Barreto introduces steerable walk-behind trencher

To meet customer demand for a walk-behind, steerable trencher, Barreto has developed the new 1324 ST, with zero turning radius.

One of the first customers to receive the 1324 ST was Lowell Thomason, owner of Rent-E-Quip, with three locations in Virginia. "We already own three Barreto tillers and we were so impressed with the new steerable unit we bought two," said Thomason. "The units have been out a total of twelve times in less than 30 days, and that's been 30 days of terrible weather. We're getting lots of compliments from customers."

Precise wheel control helps eliminate drifting, making the ST perfect for trenching uneven terrain or hillsides. Long, arching curves are now possible, with virtually no extra effort on the part of the operator. With zero turning radius, trenching corners is a breeze.

The Barreto 1324 ST is powered by a 13-hp Honda engine, while the 1624 ST runs on a 16-hp Briggs & Stratton, Vanguard V-twin engine. The 900-lb. units trench to 24-, 30- and 36-in. depths with a width of 4 to 6 in. Ground speed is 220 fpm forward. Individual wheel controls offer superb maneuverability with easy-to-understand control panels.

"Customers were asking for a pedestrian trencher that was steerable to make it easier for them to drive to their jobsites," said Tim Phelps, product manager for Barreto. "With the steerable unit, you don't have to lock and unlock controls. The new 1324 ST also makes it easier to keep your trenching lines straight."
