Features include a large cab with side door entry, different undercarriage options, and loader arms with reach and versatility to run more attachments.

700 Series

Compact Power has introduced the 700 Series Compact Utility Loaders, the 726DT, 732DT and the 749DT. The loaders feature diesel engines from 26 to 49 hp, hydrostatic transmission, four-wheel drive, user-friendly controls and an ergonomic suspension seat. Designed with a telescopic arm, the hinge pin height is able to reach over 8 feet for the 726DT, over 9 feet for the 732DT and over 12 feet for the 749DT. These loaders also offer high lifting capacities and breakout forces.  

New Fiberglass Guards

Plastic Composites Co. now makes fiberglass replacements for the plastic guards used on Altec LR series and Hi-Ranger XT bucket trucks. These guards get damaged easily while working in trees, and the stronger fiberglass guards provide a longer useful life. Altec LR and Hi-Ranger XT are registered trademarks of Altec Industries, Inc. and Terex-Telelect, Inc., respectively.

Upgrade Your Grader

Denis Cimaf now offers the brush cutter-mower model DTN for road graders. The DTN is an articulated arm with an industrial mower head at the end. It is quick-attached to the front of the grader without removing the blade and has its own 100 hp power unit. The arm can be lifted up to 20 feet in the air, 24 feet to the side and down to 7 feet below grade. Model DTN-155 offers 60 inches of cutting width. Two other models will also be available, offering 48 and 96 inches of cutting width.

Spray Away

Hudson’s new 3-gallon capacity Super Sprayer is built with Viton O-rings and gaskets that stand up to harsh chemicals. The metal-free sprayer features professional-grade flat fan and cone-pattern nozzles, Kem Oil 250 chemical-resistant hose, poly pump, heavy-duty angled wand, large comfort-grip shutoff and lightweight, translucent tank.

Deep Dripping

New Deep Drip tree watering stakes from Underhill apply water, oxygen and fertilizer directly to rootzones. The 1-inch wide stakes are available in three lengths—14, 24 and 36 inches—and include a slotted cap for easy drip line attachment. The tapered stake heads feature a perforated lower shaft for water and fertilizer saturation. An internal filter keeps out rocks and dirt. The stakes are made of tough ABS plastic and have a UV-protected ABS cap and a reinforced ABS tip with internal ribbing.


Signature Flooring Systems has introduced DuraDeck, a line of heavy-duty ground protection and access mats. DD1 is a .5-inch thick, recycled polyethylene plastic mat for protecting surfaces from damage by vehicles and equipment. Each 4-by-8-foot mat can support vehicles up to 60 tons. Mats are connected to form a continuous roadway or platform of nearly any size. The flexible DD1 mats feature a rugged traction design on both sides, are weatherproof and can withstand extreme temperatures. A flat, nonslip, pedestrian-friendly surface is found on one side of DD2 mats and both sides of the DD3. Water, chemical and UV-resistant, the mats can be cleaned with a hose or pressure washer.

Locate Lines

Ditch Witch has released the 250R/T system for locating and avoiding buried telephone, CATV, power, gas and water lines. Consisting of a 250T transmitter and 250R receiver, the lightweight system features intuitive controls, rugged design, moisture-resistant cases and depth estimation up to 15 feet. The display is backlit and reinforced with a scratch-resistant coating for optimal visibility.

The 250T can apply 33 kHz signals via direct connect, induction clamp or other optional accessories. The 250R/T has fewer components than similar models, meaning fewer chances of mechanical or electrical interruption.
