72 GOLF COURSE MANAGEMENT 05.18 Dynamic Green Products launched the new - est addition to its NV Earth line of high-performance, bio-based outdoor power equipment lubricants. NV Earth ISO hydraulic fluid is made from renewable content that's readily biodegradable, compatible with mineral oil and able to outperform conventional lubricants. It has surpassed OEM (original equipment manufacturer) standards, vane pump tests, dielectric safety requirements and the ASTM D943 turbine oil test for superior oxidation stability in the presence of water. Lubricant features include a full synthetic, bio-based oil that is biodegradable, oxidatively stable and has outstanding shear prevention with long interval drains. The lubricants are certified nontoxic, Greenworks Commercial has expanded its 82-volt line with the GBB 700 dual battery port backpack blower . The blower generates an air flow of 690 CFM and an air speed of 165 mph, performance that is available on demand at the push of a button. Operators can customize their performance and power use with the variable speed trigger, cruise control lever and turbo button. The unit is equipped with two battery ports that come standard with Automatic Battery Switch-Over. This patented feature automatically switches from one battery to the next once the first battery is depleted, extending uninterrupted runtime. The GBB 700 blower is powered by Greenworks Commercial's propri- etary 82-volt lithium-ion battery platform and brushless motor technology. The Power Station feature allows users to disconnect the blower tube and motor housing from the side of the unit to transform the blower into a mobile power source, capable of plugging in and powering any other 82-volt hand-held equipment and extending their runtime without adding weight to the tool.
