90 GOLF COURSE MANAGEMENT 05.14 (Product news) SMK Sprayers launched the P100AC and H100AC sprayers for both solvents and acetone and anything in between, the company says, adding that the sprayers are made to deliver leading-edge technology and innovation. Contact SMK Sprayers, 515-202-0052 (www.smksprayers.com). Innovative SPRAYER Turfco unveiled the Torrent Blower , which features a wireless, hand-held controller to give operators precise control over blower settings. The controller allows the operator to dial in the exact nozzle direction for what Turfco calls unprecedented precision. The controller is also equipped with a unique idle/resume button that enables users to idle down the machine when bystanders are near and quickly resume operation at their original setting when the area is clear. The combination of the idle/resume button and multiple airspeed settings increases overall effciency and helps operators save money on fuel and reduce noise. The Torrent Blower features a heavy-duty frame, rugged tongue and an adjustable hitch. Contact Turfco, 800-679-8201 (www.turfco.com). Steiner introduced Flex Deck by Lastec , a highly fexible mowing attachment designed for use with the Steiner 440 four-wheel-drive tractor. Flex Deck is an adaptable mowing attachment fabricated with four hinged foating decks and four blades to provide even mowing on the undulating, hilly terrain found around tees, water hazards, bunkers and rough. The fexible mowing attachment features an 80-inch overall cutting width, a 1.5-inch to 5-inch height of cut range and seven caster wheels for added support. The four decks are designed to achieve 40 degrees of motion and can mow terrain that fat mowers can't.
