04.14 GOLF COURSE MANAGEMENT 105 Profle Products launched Tornado Tack ST- 1000, an all-in-one, high-loading straw tackifer. It is designed to give contractors twice the coverage of a traditional blended mulch and 500 pounds-per-acre application rate. Tornado Tack can be loaded at up to 70 pounds per 100 gallons to yield double the coverage of traditional blended mulch and tackifer. A 3,000-gallon tank can cover up to 4 acres. Its all-in-one package means easier loading and stor- age, so there is never a need to transport multiple products to the jobsite for feld mixing, the company says.
