Updated Feb 19, 2013

Spread, dig, wash and cut through your next project with these new products.

Tough tractor
With four engine options ranging from 24.8 to 40 horsepower, the Steiner 440 tractor uses four-wheel drive and all-wheel traction to tackle any terrain. The 440 features a non-permeable all-steel fuel tank, four halogen-quartz headlights, 5-gallon-capacity hydraulic oil reservoir and optional Category 1 three-point hitch. In addition to their current tractor attachments, Steiner will be releasing attachments designed specifically for the 440 tractors soon. For more information, visit steinerturf.com
Top-dressing precision
Apply soil mixes, compost, natural fertilizers and granular lime to existing turf with the self-propelled Ecolawn Applicator. You can spread in a 180-degree, forward-directed arc, and the deflector shield attachment allows you to put compost in precise areas – such as under a cedar hedge, along a cut embankment or under a crop row.
