Landscape contractors know Graham Spray Equipment as a provider of custom spray rigs, which are used in lawn and tree care as well as pest control and agricultural applications, but the company also sells tools – and that lesser-known side of the business is expanding in 2016.
Graham Spray Equipment is adding a professional tiller, aerator and a deep-root fertilizer gun to its online catalog this year. The Douglasville, Georgia-based company also says it has revamped the catalog itself, expanding the information available on its products.
Among the new offerings, the GSE Tiger Tiller is designed to rough up the ground for reseeding bare spots in established lawns and seeding new areas.
The tool features all-steel construction, three 12-pronged rotating heads and a foam-covered handle.
With a total length of 65 inches, the tiller has a digging width of 11.5 inches. The tool weighs 10.5 pounds.
The GSE Trident, meanwhile, is a coring-type aerator. It’s designed for tight spots that cannot accommodate a full-size aerator.
Graham says the tool’s three steel prongs penetrate dense, compacted soil, removing 3- to 4-inch plugs to let air, water and nutrients travel to the root system of turf. Like the Tiger Tiller, it features all-steel construction and a foam handle.
The entire tool is 58.5 inches long and weighs 13.8 pounds. The three-prong aerator head is 0.875 inches by 7.75 inches.
The Tiger Tiller and Trident come with a lifetime warranty.
The other addition to Graham Spray Equipment’s tool line is the Deep Root Fertilizer Gun, which is designed for surface spraying or root feeding trees and shrubs to a depth of 6 inches.
A spring-loaded splash guard prevents liquid fertilizer from spraying back up as it is injected into the ground. Graham says the fertilizer gun is compatible with pressure systems up to 600 psi and can deliver up to four gallons of fertilizer per minute.
