With GIE+EXPO's final day underway, there is still much to see. Here are just some of the exciting equipment launches that have come out of the show.
AriensCo launches Mammoth 850 at GIE + EXPO and more
AriensCo has a wide range of lawnmowers and snowblowers on display this year. This includes the new Mammoth 850 multi-attachment vehicle. This unique ride-on multi-attachment vehicle is the first of its kind and is designed for applications that require substantial snow and ice removal operations.
"We designed the Mammoth 850 for customers who manage snow removal for municipalities, universities, commercial landscaping, large parking lots, and other intensive applications,” said Stephen Ariens, director of product management, snow, at AriensCo. “With a powerful engine and four-wheel drive steering, operators are able to cover sizeable surface areas much more easily and efficiently than pushing a vehicle. And with several attachments available that utilize our electric quick-connect system, the Mammoth 850 is an incredibly versatile vehicle that can handle a wide array of tasks.”
In addition, new Ariens special edition snow blowers have also debuted at the show and will only be available at Ariens dealerships. The Kraken Edition, Professional Mountaineering Edition, Professional Alpine Edition, and Platinum Great Lakes Edition all include several special features
Gravely has also introduced a new stand-on mower, the Z-Stance. The Z-Stance carries the Gravely promise of power and quality for landscaping professionals. It’s ideal for landscapers that may be new to the industry and want a professional stand-on mower for its comfort and visibility, or for seasoned pros that need a complimentary machine to their already existing fleet.

New Holland Construction launches largest, most powerful compact track loader to date
Skid steer and track loaders have become an essential tool and necessary investment for landscape business operations. To support these customer needs, New Holland Construction has launched the C362, its largest and most powerful compact track loader. With 114 gross horsepower, a rated operating capacity of 6,200 lbs., and a breakout force of 12,900 lbs., the C362 is ready to tackle any project.
The patented New Holland Super Boom vertical lift design optimizes the C362 for lift-and-carry operations. With greater dump reach and height, customers can easily load high-sided truck boxes or hoppers. Full 360-degree visibility comes with the C362’s low-profile Super Boom arm and shoulder design, an integrated rear camera, and new LED front work lights. Operators can see even more with the C362’s large glass door, lower front-door threshold, and a see-through area on the cab roof. No matter the job, the C362 provides maximum efficiency and safety.
The low-profile undercarriage design eases cleanout, reduces noise, and increases durability. It also provides an extended track life and smoother ride due to the steel-embedded tracks rolling on the rubber instead of steel.
The in-cab 8-inch LCD display gives operators a quick look at engine settings and performance information. The EZ EH custom screen settings allow for easy navigation and quick operation adjustments. The display also provides greater visibility to the rear of the loader for an efficient, safer operation.
The C362 is also built with electro-hydraulic controls featuring multiple speed and sensitivity settings, including creep mode and automatic straight-line tracking. Creep mode, a slow-speed option, gives the operator greater control for slow-speed operations such as trenching and cold-planing with speed thresholds of one to 100 increments. Automatic straight-line tracking improves productivity and precision as it keeps a straight working and traveling path in uneven terrain.
Hustler Turf introduces three brand new products
Hustler Turf has announced three brand new products: the Zevo, the Surfer Pro, and the Super SF stand-on. For model year 2022, Hustler also refreshed its existing FasTrak and FasTrak SDX models.
Hustler Turf’s newest all-electric unit is the Zevo, which boasts a fabricated 42” deck with similar construction as the Dash XD. This compact sit-down mower is targeted for single-yard use; it has two speeds – 5 miles per hour for the trim/learning mode and 7 miles per hour for regular mowing. The Zevo can mow up to 1.5 hours depending on terrain and grass conditions; when properly maintained, the batteries should last its user for up to five years.
The Surfer Pro is a stand-on mower with a compact footprint and 34” or 48” deck options. It is a great trim and tight area mower with the ability to easily fit through fence gates, plus it takes up minimal space on a trailer.
The Super SF stand-on mower is an all-day machine. It is the biggest, fastest and strongest model in the family of stand-up units offered by Hustler. This mower can reach up to 15 miles per hour with stronger Hydro-Gear transmissions, 26” rear-drive tires, and a 40-horsepower engine option. The Super SF is equipped with Hustler’s newest deck – the VX – in 60” or 72” and holds nearly 14 gallons of fuel, allowing the operator to spend more time mowing and less time fueling.
