Kohler has rolled out three new portable generators capable of running on gasoline, propane and natural gas. The company's PRO6.4 , PRO6.4E and PRO9.0E portable generators join an expanding lineup of generators that can be paired with the Kohler's tri-fuel conversion kit. The combination gives users the ability to select between the three fuels by simply swapping out the fuel hose and turning a dial. An authorized Kohler dealer can quickly configure the new generators with the tri-fuel conversion kit while maintaining the product's original warranty. Like all Kohler portable generators, the new models are backed by a premium three-year warranty, and the company also offers a free loaner unit (through participating dealers) for any warranty repairs exceeding 24 hours. Visit Kohler, John Deere Golf and golf course performance optimization software company OnLink (formerly OnGolf USA) have introduced OnEquip , which allows golf courses to integrate equipment fleet data — such as maintenance scheduling, parts management and uptime/downtime reports — into OnLink's platform for a comprehensive picture of course performance. The program puts fleet data at decision-makers' fingertips, and works with all equipment manufacturers and vendor suppliers. "The collaboration between John Deere Golf and OnLink provides course operators with the ability to make data-driven decisions," says Dave Plaster, sales manager for John Deere Golf. "With the integration of fleet data into OnLink, users can truly have a comprehensive view into what's happening at their course." The OnLink golf platform makes collecting data and managing decisions on labor, water, chemicals, nutrients and playing conditions easier, and it also offers the industry's most pre- cise and accurate weather forecasting service, the company says. Subscriptions for OnLink are available through John Deere Golf dealers and OnLink. Visit OnLink, John Deere unveiled the newly designed, which features easy-to-use navigation, tools for those who own or are shopping for Deere products (such as help identifying the right machine for a certain use or locating a dealer), and spec-to- spec comparisons across John Deere and competitive models. The global website launch included 33 John Deere websites in 16 languages. Nufarm announced that Anuew plant growth regulator (PGR) is now registered for use in Arizona. Anuew contains prohexadione calcium, a new PGR for cool- and warm- season turf that can be applied to greens, tees, fairways and roughs, residential and commercial lawns, sod farms, sport fields and similar areas. Arizona turf professionals can immediately use Anuew for the management of vertical growth, which supports less mowing, fewer clippings, and overall improvement in turf quality and appearance, the company says. The application of Anuew supports the conservation of time and maintenance resources, which can be of particular benefit to Arizona turf professionals who manage turf year-round. Visit Nufarm,
