Sarlo Power Mowers has unveiled the Dirt Donkey hydro-powered wheelbarrow , which features a hydro transmission for positive forward and reverse operation with no shifting, and is equipped with simple controls, articulating suspension and large ag- tread drive tires. Powered by a sturdy, 190-cc gas engine, the Dirt Donkey travels over uneven, rough terrain with ease at ground speeds up to 5 mph, the company says, and requires no pushing or balancing of heavy loads. With a stable four-point stance, low center of gravity and large, 10-cubic-foot bed capacity, the Dirt Donkey readily carries loads weighing up to 500 pounds. The low bed height minimizes lifting and makes for easy loading, and the bed is balanced to enable emptying of heavy loads with minimal effort.

The introduction of the grass at the World War II Memorial is part of a turfgrass trial the National Park Service is institut- ing at a number of national parks. Knox Fertilizer is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its polymer-coated fertilizer technology, which can extend the nutrient release of fertilizers for up to a year in some applications. The Surf technology — or "sustained uniform release fertilizer" — is a patented polymer coating that represents the latest era of "smart" fertilizers that help golf course superintendents, lawn care professionals, landscap- ing companies and specialty crop growers reduce their environmental impact as well as improve their bottom line. SurfCote is a controlled-release urea for general turf maintenance. "At a time of increased environmental aware- ness, SurfCote is the right product at the right time for our customers," says Robert Shaw, president of Knox Fertilizer. "With slow-release technology, a consistent nutrient source is always available to the plant for optimum growth but without the time-consuming and costly inconvenience of repeat applications. SurfCote also reduces the opportunity for plant burn and over-application and waste of nutrients." Knox Fertilizer plans to celebrate the anniversary through- out the year with end-user promotions and educational content. Contact Knox Fertilizer, 574-772-6275 (www. knoxfert.com).
